Tierklinik Bielefeld in Germany joins AniCura
AniCura, one of Europe’s leading providers of high-quality veterinary care for companion animals, acquires Tierklinik Bielefeld, one of Germany’s largest veterinary clinics. The partnership with AniCura provides Tierklinik Bielefeld with a professional long-term partner and a broad network for medical and scientific knowledge sharing.
Tierklinik Bielefeld, now AniCura Bielefeld Tierärztliche Klinik für Kleintiere, was founded by veterinarian Dr Herbert Lüttgenau in 1991 and today admits 38 000 patients each year. The team of 60 employees, 24 of whom are veterinarians, offers specialised veterinary services around-the-clock. Approximately one third of patients are referred to the clinic from other veterinarians. The clinic’s veterinary competence is pronounced in a number of fields, as the team includes specialists in surgery, neurology, diagnostic imaging and ophthalmology as well as extraordinary expertise in urology.
The purpose built facilities were constructed in 2005 encompassing 1 300 square meters and, in addition to separate examination rooms and nursing wards for cats and dogs, host equipment for diagnostic imaging including CT (Computed Tomography) and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). Furthermore, the clinic is equipped with operation rooms not only suited for orthopaedics and soft tissue surgery, but also equipped with technology for laser- and cryosurgery. Additionally, various methods for pain management and physiotherapy are on offer.
─ Bundling resources and mutual support are important steps to more customer service and power for medical progress. AniCura and Tierklinik Bielefeld share the same values. Therefore, it was a logic step to join. We feel very comfortable with the AniCura culture and that we are amongst many wonderful and professional people, says Dr Herbert Lüttgenau, Co-Practice Manager Tierklinik Bielefeld.
─ We are very pleased to welcome Tierklinik Bielefeld to our European veterinary family. Together, we will be writing a new chapter of development within the veterinary care industry, to the benefit of companion animals, pet owners as well as our highly talented staff, says Peter Dahlberg, CEO AniCura.
