A husband-and-wife team of veterinarians with nearly 40 years in practice are planning to open what they believe will be the first drive-thru veterinary clinic in the United States.
Since COVID-19-related business shutdowns began in March, many clinics have started curbside service, as recommended by the American Veterinary Medical Association. Others offer drive-thru windows to pick up pet medications or food.
But Marty Greer said the clinic she and husband Dan Griffiths intend to open later this year across from the Woodman’s grocery on Sun Prairie’s southwest side will be the first one designed specifically for drive-thru service. They say they’ve even patented the idea.
