Due to overwhelming demand, Dr. Kelly’s Surgical Unit, a convenient veterinary clinic that offers specialized pet care at a fraction of the price of traditional vets, will open a new brick-and-mortar location in Tucson in July 2023.  The new facility will have the capacity to complete 60 to 80 surgeries per day, focusing on low-cost operations such as dental work, spays and neuters, mass and tumor removals, bladder stones, and other procedures.

“Our business strategy was created to provide worried parents with a reliable location for their pets’ care,” says Douglas Patriquin, Co-Owner and CEO of Dr. Kelly’s Surgical Unit. “We take great pride in offering treatments and procedures at just a third of the typical price so that more pets can receive the high-quality care that they deserve.”

Many community members are faced with difficult financial decisions, and pet care is no exception. There is a high demand for easily accessible, low-cost pet care, but unfortunately, many financially exploitative veterinary clinics prey on pet owners in need. Dr. Kelly’s brings trustworthy care to Tucson, allowing pet parents to receive the treatments they want without having to make the considerable financial sacrifices requested by many traditional veterinarian offices.

Dr. Kelly’s Surgical Unit, unlike most veterinary practices, specializes in affordable surgical care. They currently have 6 doctors in 5 locations in the Arizona market. This new Tucson location will be the first brick-and-mortar in the city supporting two mobile surgical units.  Their unique service menu and convenient access model enable them to serve the entire Phoenix and Tucson metro areas, thanks to business partners all over town.

The practice is unique in that it provides amenities such as an extensive surgical prep area, large surgical areas that can accommodate two surgical doctors, a recovery area for post-operative care, in a highly efficient building, with the floor plan designed to accommodate the specialized services they provide; each doctor can perform 18+ complex surgeries per day.

Dr. Kelly’s Surgical Unit was founded in 2016 by Dr. Kelly Patriquin, DVM, and Doug Patriquin, who sought to establish a veterinary clinic that could serve more pets. Since its inception in 2016, the clinic has performed over 100,000 affordable pet surgeries, assisted over 150,000 clients, and served over 80 different pet rescue organizations. The clinic expanded by 60% in 2022, 50% in 2021 and another 64% in 2022. In 2023, they anticipate another 50% growth while adding 2-3 more locations including the Broadway Blvd location.

The East Tucson location of Dr. Kelly’s is located at 8860 E Broadway Blvd., on the southeast corner of Broadway and Camino Seco. For more information, visit https://www.drkellysvet.com.
