The owners of Pine Island Animal Clinic have announced they will be expanding the clinic to provide better care for its dog and cat patients. The recent purchase of a building at 10290 Stringfellow Road, St. James City, will expand all of their current services as well as add some new services.
The 35-year-old practice, purchased three years ago by husband and wife team Trevor Singer and Kendra Techeira DVM, will be relocating to the new facility before Christmas this year.
The current facility, at 5100 Doug Taylor Circle in St. James City, offers a full range of veterinary services including wellness exams, diagnostics, X-rays, dental, pharmacy, flea and tick prevention, spay and neuter, vaccinations, orthopedic care and much more for your dog or cat.
The team at the clinic includes, from left, Marylou Webster , Christina Cueto, Jessica Mackay , Debbe Coleman, Trevor Singer and Dr. Kendra Techeira. Below is the exterior of new building located at 10290 Stringfellow Road in St. James City.
The new facility, located two blocks south of the Pine Island Road intersection, will more than double the square footage of the current location. There will be 3,700 square feet of hospital space and 3,300 square feet for additional services. There will also be an expanded retail area so customers will have a wider range of foods, toys and accessories to choose from.
Singer comes from an extensive business management background and is very much involved in the business management side of the clinic while Dr. Techeira handles everything medical.
"The building requires an extensive renovation but if all goes according to schedule, we are planning to celebrate with a ribbon-cutting and a Christmas party at the new building in December," Singer said. "We're very excited, the added space in our new facility will allow us to include lots of additional services like boarding, grooming and even a day care where people can leave their dogs and cats in a safe and caring environment for the day."
Dr. Techeira is just as excited about the move.
"The new facility will more than double our hospital and significantly expand our surgical capabilities," Dr. Techeira said. "We pride ourselves on our services and we try to go above and beyond to provide the best possible care. Our goal is to be known as your "neighborhood vet."
Hours at the Pine Island Animal Clinic are Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, 8:30 a.m. - noon. For additional information, call 239-283-1244 or visit
