After operating an animal clinic in Alma, Mich. for 16 years, Tom Armstrong decided to open a second location in Stockbridge.
Armstrong wasn’t looking to add a practice, but found himself purchasing a 1,000 square foot clinic that was closing.
“In going through it, my wife and I and [our] office manager saw some potential there to do some good things,” Armstrong says. “It would have been sad to see that practice go, and it seemed the community could support a practice so we sort of took it on.”
When Armstrong purchased the building, he hired a new staff and completely renovated the building.
“So far so good,” Armstrong says about business. “Anytime you’re starting what essentially amounts to a new venture you get a little worked up about how it’s going to go.”
Stockbridge Animal Clinic is a full service animal hospital and is located at 214 S. Center St.
