Under the leadership of Michelle Capehart, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, a new animal hospital called Main Street Animal Clinic has opened in Columbia, Tennessee. Michelle and clinic manager/husband Jesse have wanted to open a clinic for the past eight years, and finally found their chance in Columbia. The clinic offers a wide variety of services to the community. They had their grand opening ceremony on March 26, 2014. After a complete renovation, their new building expects to receive owners in a new reception area and treat patients with quality equipment and facilities.
Many of the offered by the clinic are common to most animal hospitals, including immunizations, radiology, dental care, surgery, and of course spay and neuter services. One of the more modern components of the Main Street Clinic business model is their online pharmacy. Yet to be opened, the pharmacy plans to fill prescriptions in house and online, making prescription refills and payment much easier for pet owners.
