Manchester Animal Hospital Celebrates 25th Anniversary
Twenty five years ago, Dr Larry and Jacqueline Lamb had moved to MBTS and had a strong desire to bring the experiences they shared practicing veterinary medicine to their new home town.
The challenge was finding a facility that could accommodate a veterinary clinic and include parking for potential clients. The location at 66 Summer Street had been the original home of the Slades and the Cricket, MBTS’s wonderful local newspaper. At the time, it was an empty warehouse, offices and a house attached to the main building.
A major renovation began a process that eventually included other businesses at the location and the creation of the Manchester Veterinary Clinic. Over the years this facility was continually expanded and additional renovation to emerge as the Manchester Animal Hospital.
Today, the Manchester Animal Hospital is a full service medical facility dedicated to caring for the dogs and cats of Manchester and surrounding communities. Dr. Larry and Jacqie have had a plethora of experience, creating three veterinary facilities in Vermont after originally practicing in New York City. Jacqie graduated from the University of New Hampshire and was a teacher in the veterinary technician program at Essex Agricultural and Technical Institute in Danvers, and Dr. Lamb was a graduate of Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine.
Today, they share a mutual pride in bringing a progressive animal hospital to this town that provides cutting edge care for the pets of this community. The hospital has the capacity to perform lab tests on site for immediate diagnosis of medical conditions, a digital x-ray suite, ultrasound diagnostics, cold laser therapy, dental equipment to provide oral surgery and routine teeth cleaning , a dental x-ray unit and a surgical operating room that includes EKG monitoring. There are several different modes of anesthesia employed depending on a patient’s requirements, which include two inhalation machines.
Appointments at the MAH are by appointment. In the event a patient needs special care at home, we also provide a house call service and it is usually available for urgent care weekdays and weekends. We feel grateful for the opportunity to live and work in MBTS and look forward to serving the community for many years to come.
