Plans To Launch Chain Of Multi-Speciality Veterinary Hospitals
By CC Correspondent
DCC (Dogs, Cats & Companions) Animal Hospital is first of its kind multi-specialty animal healthcare facility offering advanced medical expertise in India in a compassionate and friendly environment. It offers complete physical and emotional care to pets. It offers a range of high-quality medical care for animals including specialized services in orthopedics, dentistry, trauma & surgery as well as preventive care for pets. Apart from pet healthcare services, it also offers dedicated & personalized pet care at its Gurgaon facility including a luxury pet resort, boarding, grooming, and daycare services.
The DCC Animal Hospital project was envisioned by A’alda, a Japan-based company, with an aim to humanize pet care services. A’alda was founded in 2019 with an aim to provide veterinary care and clinical services for animals in Asian countries. Its mission is to continuously improve the standard of care for hospitals and veterinary medicine and make it accessible to people globally.
Now, DCC Animal Hospital, promoted by A’alda, is set to expand its footprint in India with the launch of multi-specialty animal hospitals across the country, offering a global standard of specialized pet healthcare services currently difficult to access by pet parents. These hospitals will be state-of-the-art and will be equipped with advanced infrastructure and medical expertise, offering cutting-edge medical technologies for our four-legged friends. They will house pet diagnostic and therapeutic services, complete in-house laboratory facilities, and an intensive care unit (ICU).
This flagship hospital of A’alda will be the first animal healthcare facility in India to create a unique technological offering via the website and a mobile app that will provide a digital bridge between veterinary practices and pet owners. The interface will facilitate pet parents’ access to their pet’s medical notes, vaccines, prescriptions, doctors, and invoices at the touch of a button and will transform the traditional communication path between vets and pet parents.
The new chain of multi-specialty DCC hospitals will house highly skilled doctors and on-ground staff who will follow global standards of veterinary science. The hospital team will be led by renowned veteran vet Dr. Vinod Sharma, who is also credited with the honour of setting up India’s first blood bank for dogs. The team is also backed by an advisory board consisting of veterinarians from the US and Japan and receives support for matters ranging from hospital design to veterinarian training. The hospital will also impart personalized training programs for the skill development of practicing veterinarians.
Commenting on DCC Pets expansion in India, Mr. Ohhun Kwon, COO, A’alda said, “India is a major growth market for us and we are excited to expand our operations and transform the standard of pet care in the country. With lockdown coming into effect, the pet ownership market in India has seen a phenomenal rise in the last year, driven largely by nuclear families with disposable incomes. India currently has one of the highest number of pets per veterinarian ratio amongst Asian countries, creating a huge supply-demand gap. Our aim is to bridge this gap by creating an effective network of veterinary care experts in the country and equipping them with innovative pet care technologies.”
Sharing his thoughts on this expansion, Dr. Vinod Sharma, Head of Hospital Division, DCC Pets stated, “While the pet food & care industry is booming in India, there is very little being done to improve medical excellence and innovation on the pet healthcare front. Our aim with DCC Pets is to change the perception when it comes to animal healthcare by providing cutting-edge services and facilities to pet parents in India.”
With this news in hand, we can say that A’alda is all set to change the veterinary face of India with its exemplary and pathbreaking vision.
