PHILADELPHIA (Aug. 26, 2018)Community Veterinary Partners is pleased to announce it has acquired River Road Veterinary Hospital in Andover, Mass. This is the 52nd hospital to join the CVP family.

“We founded River Road Veterinary Hospital with the desire to provide individualized, personal care for pets and still practice the highest level of medical and surgical care,” said George and Tracie Fountas. “Our collaborative approach includes utilizing cardiologists, a board certified surgeon and internal medical specialists that come to the hospital as cases dictate.

We are very proud of what we have created and are excited to see what we will accomplish together.”
