Patriot Animal Hospital is scheduled to open in May on Hwy. 29 in Georgetown.

Specializing in health care for cats and dogs, the new hospital will offer annual wellness exams, senior pet care, parasite and heartworm prevention, surgeries such as spay and neuter, dental services, cold laser therapy, and lab imaging.

Patriot Animal Hospital will also provide emergency services during regular business hours.

The family- and veteran-owned business is led by local husband and wife Freddy and Amy Mitchell.
