Piedmont Pet Care!

Welcome to Hôpital Vétérinaire De Piedmont! Your local veterinarian in Piedmont. We’re proud to provide a wide variety of veterinary medical services to Piedmont and the surrounding areas!

Our History

Piedmont veterinary hospital was founded in 1993 by doctors David Mance and Lyne Farmer. Both recently graduated, they purchased the building that housed the original hospital in September of 1993. After 3 months of renovations the hospital opened to the public on December 14th, 1993. At the time, both veterinarians worked on site treating companion animals and Dr. Farmer also offered an ambulatory equine service. The equine service soon became so busy that Dr. Farmer had to devote all her time to it. As the practice grew, more veterinarians were needed to keep up with the demand. Dr. Lisiane Rivest joined the team in 2009 followed by Dr. Silke Lutz in 2020.  By 2010, the original building was no longer big enough and a new building was built on the same site. The hospital remained open throughout the construction and when the new building was completed the old one was demolished to make room for the parking lot.
