MedVet Bolsters Specialty Services Offering in Dallas and Plano, Texas with Addition of Veterinary Eye Institute

MedVet and Veterinary Eye Institute (VEI), both well-respected members of the Texas veterinary community, are pleased to announce they are now one. Beginning this month, VEI will join the MedVet family of hospitals as a single focus practice devoted to veterinary ophthalmology specialty care.

“We are pleased to stand alongside Veterinary Eye Institute as a leader in ophthalmology care,” said MedVet CEO Dr. Linda Lehmkuhl. “Together, we maintain our commitment to enhancing the lives of pets, their loving families, and our veterinary community. We also gain the ability to offer exciting new career opportunities for veterinary ophthalmologists while expanding access to specialty ophthalmology care.”

“With MedVet, we augment our ability to grow and maintain our veterinarian ownership, leadership, and commitment to a positive culture. We’re also supported in maintaining our commitment to providing a visually clear and comfortable place for pets in a kind, collaborative, and compassionate way,” said Dr. John Warren, founder and President of Veterinary Eye Institute. “I wasn’t sure such philosophical alignment was possible. It’s an amazing time to be leading VEI as part of MedVet.”
