Open and Caring 7 days a week The old Motel for Pets was built in 1956 by Dr. Jack Baker. It operated as a boarding facility until 1984, when Dr. Arthur Serwitz purchased and renovated it to accommodate a veterinary clinic, the Riverview Animal Clinic. Over the years, the facility has undergone several small renovations and two major additions. The last addition and renovation, which was finished in July 1996, doubled the space of the previous facility. The clinic has reorganized its boarding facility to separate dogs and cats completely, while maintaining a comfortable capacity of about 200 animals that might stay there on a holiday weekend or popular vacation time. Its grooming facility has been increased and renovated to accommodate he new demands. The clinic has significantly increased its hospital space, going from three to seven exam rooms and enlarged its treatment area. It added an additional surgery suite, a separate cat hospital ward and an exotic animal ward. It also added an intensive care unit. Services include preventative health care, boarding, pet food and supplies, diagnostic testing, senior animal health care, emergency services, hospitalization, behavior counseling and treatment, surgery, grooming and dental care. The Riverview Animal Clinic is located in Birmingham, Ala.
