Southern Veterinary Partners welcomes to our team previous owner Dr. Stephen Tower along with associate veterinarians Dr. Pauline Clayton, Dr. Nicholas Baer and Dr. Kathy Young.
Says Dr. Stephen Tower, “When I started my ownership of Memphis Animal Clinic 40 years ago, I also started dreaming that the sale of my vet practice would be the ticket for my retirement. Southern Veterinary Partners made that dream come true. Jay Price and his team kept me updated, were thorough in their discussions and easy to work with during the acquisition of my vet practice. Their leadership and staff worked hard to make the transition smooth, uncomplicated, and straightforward for me, my employees and my clients. Thank you Southern Veterinary Partners!”
