History of Bradenton Veterinary Hospital

Bradenton Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1947 by Dr. Walter France as Bradenton Small Animal Hospital. Dr. France, who was a World War I veteran, started the practice near the close of the second war to end all wars. Initially Bradenton Small Animal Hospital was a mixed animal practice. Dr. France sold the practice to Dr. Clair Butler and his wife Edith in 1957.

Dr. Butler steered the practice for the next 54 years! Later in his career, Dr. Butler saw potential in caring for pets. After limiting the practice to pet care, he quickly needed to add an addition to the building. Under Dr. Butler’s guidance Bradenton Small Animal Hospital became one of the busiest two-doctor practices in the Bradenton area.

In 2011 he sold the practice to Dr. Laurel Logas. Dr. Logas modernized the medical care introducing digital full body and dental x-rays, incorporating pain management, adding a modern laboratory and computers to the practice. She brought modern dentistry to the practice. Dr. Logas changed the name to Bradenton Veterinary Hospital in 2011 with the understanding that most people who love pets no longer called them animals. Instead they consider pets as part of their family.

Dr. Logas rehabbed the original facility while preparing to build a new larger one to better serve pets and their owners. Dr. Logas directed the construction project which was completed in 2016. Dr Logas grew the practice to four veterinarians.

In 2017 BVH earned the status of being certified as a “Cat Friendly Practice” by the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
