His name is Bob. Beta Bob, to be precise, but guests also know him as Regal Veterinary Clinic’s resident pet and powder-room attendant. And though he might be a fish, he's also the smallest of the skilled professionals keeping things running neatly and smoothly at this small animal practice nestled within the Lincoln Heights Shopping Center.
Everyday the clinic’s dedicated staff—led by owner and veterinarian Dr. Melinda Watterson—sees handfuls of patients, from cats and dogs to pocket pets, such as hamsters, rabbits, ferrets, and teacup rhinos. Routine vaccines and microchipping keep critters healthy and safe, and services such as chemotherapy and surgery help heal ailing four-legged friends. Along with two separate treatment rooms for cats and dogs, the clinic is also outfitted with an in-house laboratory, and a fully-stocked onsite pharmacy ensures pets get their medication when they need it.
