2007 – Lambert Vet Supply (LVS) is pleased to announce the grand opening of Main Street Animal Clinic and retail center, a new urban style center for animal health care. Located at 504 E St, in historic downtown Fairbury, the clinic is a first for the company; combining primary, limited-practice veterinary care for companion animals with a retail outlet for their extensive catalog line of animal care products and medications. Local customers can shop Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm at the retail store for any of the items carried by Lambert Vet Supply including premium pet foods, pet, equine and livestock medications, vaccines and professional quality pet grooming products. Knowledgeable staff members are available to help with advice on over 7,000 products. The new store is also a UPS drop point for anyone wishing to ship packages, utilizing UPS’s Worldship system.
Dr. Rick Kesler, LVS staff veterinarian, will preside over the new clinic. A 1985 graduate of Iowa State University School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Kesler is licensed to practice Veterinary Medicine in 13 states and currently is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. Kesler’s many years of dedication and experience in the veterinary field allows him to provide unparalleled care for pets and their owners. Main Street Animal Clinic is currently offering the following services for companion pets: examinations and consultations, eye, ear, dental and skin care, vaccinations including rabies, lab tests including heartworm, feline leukemia and urinalysis. Deworming, microchipping anal gland expression are also available. X-rays and minor surgeries will be introduced in the near future as well as a full-service grooming salon, to meet consumer demand. “I am proud to be a part of Main Street Animal Clinic, we are offering brand new facilities and caring, comprehensive service with a soft touch,” said Dr. Kesler. Clinic hours are Monday-Friday, 9 am – 4 pm and appointments can be made by calling LVS at (402) 729-8022.
The Main Street Animal Clinic and retail store are part of the latest expansion plan for Lambert Vet Supply. A combination of public and private funding was used to renovate the downtown space, home to the former Stage department store. The office space which houses the LVS sales and marketing divisions also has a large conference room for continuing education in which LVS employees sharpen their product knowledge and are trained in industry-specific animal husbandry practices.
The opening of the vet clinic/retail store marks the successful completion of the latest economic development proposal approved by the Fairbury City Council to foster economic growth, job creation and retention.
