Grafton Animal Hospital opened March 1994, in a 2500 sq ft facility. In 1999, the practice had grown too large for the existing structure and was enlarged to 4000 sq ft by adding a larger kennel, cat boarding area, and grooming room. One year later, the treatment area and waiting room were enlarged by 30%, and an exam room was added. In late 2005, the hospital was expanded once again to its current 6000 sq ft.

“From the friendly answer of the receptionist to the greeting when I entered, I knew I was in the right Vet’s office. Our appointment was with Dr. Raiff. She listened as I described the symptoms and then thoroughly examined my pet, addressing each concern.”
