Pieper Veterinary joins forces with Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care Hospital


Pieper is continuing to partner with privately owned hospitals dedicated to offering quality veterinarian-led medicine in the Northeast

Pieper Veterinary, a Connecticut-based family of primary, specialty, and emergency care veterinary hospitals, has teamed up with Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care (PVESC) in Portland, Maine. This is in line with Pieper’s aim to partner with privately owned hospitals dedicated to offering quality veterinarian-led medicine in the Northeast.1

Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care was founded in 1988 and became an ER and Specialty Hospital in 2019 thanks to surgeon and founder Marta Agrodnia, DVM, DACVS-SA. PVESC's specialty departments feature anesthesiology, emergency & critical care, cardiology, oncology, internal medicine, surgery, ophthalmology, and neurology.

"At PVESC, we appreciate this opportunity to be part of a larger, veterinarian-led group that will allow us to grow and continue to serve our clients, patients, and our referral and veterinary communities," shared Marta Agrodnia, DVM, DACVS-SA of PVESC, in a company release.1 "The professionalism, enthusiasm and quality of veterinarian-led medicine demonstrated by the team at Pieper Veterinary made them our clear partner of choice."

Pieper Veterinary was founded in 1937 by Dr Neil Pieper, DVM, with the practice caring for both pets and farm animals in Middletown, Connecticut.2 Since then, it has expanded to have another location in Madison, Connecticut.

"We are so excited to welcome these clients, patients, and staff into the Pieper family. As a hospital network that was started in 1937, we're honored to continue this long legacy of veterinarian-led practices with PVESC," added Ben Olson, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology), and chief medical officer of Pieper Veterinary. "Dr Marta Agrodnia has built PVESC with strong servant-leadership that clearly inspires everyone who works with her, and we're thrilled with the merger of these 2 companies."
