Practice History & Profile
We have been located in Metamora for years. Formerly Ulmanis Animal Hospital. Dr.Richard Bell and his wife Wendy took on the legacy in 2005. With a change in the name to Bell Veterinary Clinic, they still held on to the same clientele and values. This allowed for growth and community, which made it possible to open a second location just down the road in Oxford in July of 2015.
We are Fear Free focused, and Cat Friendly focused. We are supporting our team members to have the ability to receive their accreditation, before pursuing a location accreditation!
