Dear Friends and Clients,

As some of you may have heard, we have some exciting news to share--BLVD Vet is expanding! In just a few weeks we will be opening a second full service veterinary practice in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, at 375 W. Erie.

We're hard at work designing the clinic to be as fresh and welcoming as our Logan Square location and you can expect the staff to be the same friendly, professional team always striving to accommodate to your needs. Over the past few months we’ve been investing in some great new staff members and training them in the the BLVD way of doing things so that they’re ready to hit the ground running.  

We’re going to be using the same phone number, same website, same social media, and the same management team for both locations to ensure consistency in service. We anticipate opening our doors August 15th--possibly sooner! 

For our current clients at BLVD Vet Logan Square, or future clients of BLVD Vet River North, we’d be incredibly grateful if you referred BLVD Vet to any of your pet-owning friends who live in or near downtown Chicago.  As always, our clients receive a $15 credit for EVERY household that they refer. Make sure you tell your friends to notify our front desk of your referral.  We’ve found organic client word of mouth to be by far the best way to grow.  For those of you who happen to live in or near downtown, you’ll be able to seamlessly transition to the new location if you prefer. It's hassle free as all medical records can be securely shared between practices. 

Dr. Dylan and Dr. Williams will be available for appointments at both the River North and Logan Square locations. As always, we encourage our clients to request the veterinarian that they prefer and we will do our very best to accommodate those preferences based on scheduling. As they will be scheduled for two days at each location every week, we do not anticipate any difficulty in continuing to see your preferred veterinarian at Logan Square once River North opens. Our relief veterinarians, Dr. Ho and Dr. Holub will also lend their time and expertise at River North.

As an aside, we'd also like to note that no outside investors or private equity firms were partnered with for the new location, meaning that BLVD Vet will continue to be a 100% locally owned and managed small business. We believe that allows us to keep client and patient care as our top priority, as well as quickly adapt and change to community needs.

Thank you so much for your patronage and business. As always, we welcome your feedback and will use it to make BLVD Vet River North just as successful as BLVD Vet Logan Square!

Sincerely,

Dr. Dylan Frederickson and the BLVD Team

Boulevard Veterinary is now AAHA Accredited!

Hello friends and clients,

    Happy New Year! We are proud to announce that we are now AAHA accredited! Only 12% of veterinary hospitals in the U.S. and Canada have met their rigorous standards of excellence and accreditation application is completely voluntary. To become AAHA accredited, our practice was evaluated for approximately 900 standards of veterinary care established by AAHA veterinary experts. We had our facilities inspected, standard operating procedures reviewed, and medical records evaluated for thoroughness. 

The American Animal Hospital Association was established in 1933 by leaders in the field with the mission to:

• Enhance the abilities of veterinarians to provide quality medical care to companion animals
• Enable veterinarians to successfully conduct their practices and maintain their facilities with high standards of excellence
• Meet the public's needs as they relate to the delivery of small animal veterinary medicine

Preparing for AAHA accreditation in 2016 both validated our methods and helped us increase the value and quality of our veterinary care. We look forward to the challenge of maintaining our AAHA accreditation as we grow - continuing to pass on the benefits of expert, standardized care to you and your pets.

    
Thank you for your support,
Dr. Dylan and the BLVD Team
