The Best Care for your Best Friend
Here at Young’s Animal Hospital, we believe in the bond between humans and their pets. We work hard to make sure our patients live the longest and healthiest lives possible with our help. We know this is possible only with good care.
In 1961 Dr. William Glenn Young opened the doors to Young’s Indian River Animal Hospital and began serving the Titusville and Brevard County communities. He then sold the practice to Dr. Paul Berger in 1997, who had joined the practice earlier that decade as an associate veterinarian and then became a practice partner in the mid-1990s.
In January of 2005, Dr. Camille Young (no relation to Dr. WG Young) purchased the practice after herself joining as an associate, and shortened the name to Young’s Animal Hospital. The practice continued to grow and expanded to our present location on Cheney Highway under her leadership. In July 2014, Dr. Young sold the practice to Vision Vet Care (VVC), a veterinarian-owned business with practices in Indiana, Kentucky and Florida. Over the years, a lot has changed in the field of veterinary medicine. What has never changed through the decades is the commitment Young’s has to our community.
We strive to serve our clients by offering the highest quality, compassionate medicine for their pets. It is also very important to us to be involved in and support our community through our various outreach programs. Throughout any changes in the upcoming decades, we look forward to continuing to serve our community and hope to see you and your pets soon!
