Behind the Red Door

In 1970 the British Veterinarian Alfred Wight, writing as James Herriot, published his collection of stories about life as a young Veterinarian in a small English country town.  All Creatures Great and Small became a best seller, and the touching tales of his neighbors and their animals influenced countless young people to become Veterinarians.  Dr. Herriott’s clinic had a red door.  It has been a tradition for many since to paint the door of a veterinary clinic red as an homage to Dr. Herriott’s vision and heritage

For Dr. Patty and the staff here at Indialantic Veterinary Hospital (IVH) that red door symbolizes entering into a place with the spirit of personal, individualized, “small town” care that recognizes the special bond that exists between people and their pets.  When you visit us we want to know the whole story.  We want to assist you in your determination to provide the best possible care for your companion animal.  We’re committed to helping you to understand your dogs’ or your cats’ life needs: medical, environmental, mental and emotional.  It’s about more than just giving shots every year or so.  It’s about life and all of its stages; from puppy/kitten through active adulthood, illness, old age, and, eventually, loss.

All of us at IVH would welcome the opportunity to show you the kind of care that is waiting for you behind our  Red Door.  It is our hope that, when you leave here, you will be not just satisfied with the level of personal service: we want you to be thrilled
