“We are proud to announce our new partnership with Community Veterinary Partners. Our doctors have provided comprehensive and compassionate veterinary care for local dogs, cats and pocket pets for over 35 years.” The anticipation of Dr. Kusterbeck, Owner and Medical Director, to be a part of the CVP family matches CVP’s excitement in welcoming Ridge Lake Animal Hospital: “The Community Veterinary Partners team is very excited to partner with Dr. Kusterbeck and the team at Ridge Lake Animal Hospital” (Dennis McMichael, CVP Director of Integration and Regional Director of Operations).
“Comprehensive and compassionate care” is certainly representative of what Ridge Lake provides to the animals of Woodbridge, Virginia and the surrounding areas. In addition to cats and dogs, the experienced staff regularly serve reptiles, birds, and other pocket pets. Their facilities also offer everything a client could hope to find and address nearly all areas of care. They have a pharmacy, a surgical suite, and exam rooms. Their digital X-ray equipment is also equipped to handle dental X-rays. Clients are happy to have the option of indoor boarding facilities—with a great outdoor walking area—and grooming services.
In addition to working hard every day to serve their patients, the staff at Ridge Lake Animal Hospital is quick to lend a helping hand to the community at large. The event Dog’s Walk for a Dog Park helped raise money for a dog park in Prince William County, and Ridge Lake Animal Hospital provided medical care and adoption services for some of the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Ridge Lake regularly holds rabies clinics, attends local schools’ career days, and offers reduced cost spay and neuter programs. Dr. Kusterbeck believes, “With Community Veterinary Partner’s help, we will strengthen our position in the community and continue to provide outstanding pet care into the future.”
Ridge Lake Animal Hospital opened in 1982 and became AAHA accredited in 1984. It has a long and reputable history of treating pets like members of the family. Dennis McMichael (CVP Director of Integration and Regional Director of Operations) expressed his confidence in the partnership: “Ridge Lake’s strong reputation for quality care and exceptional customer service go hand-in-hand with our organization’s ongoing philosophy of progressive practice management, making the hospital an excellent addition to the CVP family of veterinary hospitals.”
