Tantramar Veterinary Hospital has a new owner. The former owner, Dr. Gina Bradet, is retiring from practice, and Dr. Tanya Sparling has purchased the hospital.
“I have a whole mix of emotions about retiring, of course,” says Dr. Gina, “but I’m very pleased to have a veterinarian with Tanya’s knowledge and compassion taking the helm of this hospital. My clients and patients will be in caring hands.”
Tanya Sparling, DVM, is the owner of Amherst Veterinary Hospital across the provincial border. Under her stewardship that facility has seen significant growth and consistent expansion of treatment options for patients, including considerable investments in state-of-the-art technologies. At AVH, Sparling instituted 24-hour emergency care and achieved AAHA-accreditation, the gold standard for veterinary hospitals in North America. Laser therapy is available at both hospitals.
“Laser therapy is a new area for us and new for Tantramar,” says Sparling. “We did our research and evidence for therapeutic benefits — accelerated healing of damaged tissues, for example — is well-documented and compelling.”
Sackville patients will also have access, at the Amherst facility, to diagnostics such as digital and dental radiography.
Dr. Tanya will be spending the majority of her client hours at Tantramar, joined by another one of her vets, Dr. Emily Youe.
“I’m thrilled to be back in Sackville,” says Sparling, who completed her Bachelor of Science at Mount Allison University. “I hope people will pop in and introduce themselves and their pets.”
