Pets took their owners to the Grand Opening of Blandon Family Veterinary Practice on Oct. 27.

They had a chance to come out to meet the Blandon Family Veterinary Practice team, take a tour of the brand-new facility, and check out the vendor tents to discover some of their local pet service neighbors. Leashed pets in costume were also invited to the first annual Blandon Family Veterinary Practice Pet Halloween Costume Contest. Top three costumes win a free exam.

“We will be able to provide your pets with everything that you would expect and want from your own family physician, in a personal family practice atmosphere,” according to their website.

Veterinarian Todd C. Estelle VMD is a 2002 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine who has lived in and practiced in the Berks County region for the past 10 years, according to the website.


“One of my utmost goals for the hospital is to be everything you expect and want from your own personal family physician, and to exceed that expectation!” writes Estelle.“I’ve worked in many veterinary facilities over the years, and have heard from clients all over saying that they’re dissatisfied with larger veterinary groups and the impersonal feel they may have. People crave and want a smaller family-like feel to their veterinarian’s office, where they and their pets are known by the doctor and staff, and where they will see the same doctor when they come.”

“I’ve chosen intentionally to keep things small and simple to do exactly that, and to provide you with that personal family practice atmosphere! What drew me into veterinary medicine, and my favorite part of it is the bond you and I form over the years as together we care for your pets.”

The full service general practiceprovides most routine pet wellness care, vaccinations, urgent care/hospitalization, and a wealth of surgical procedures. Estelle practices on most common pets, including, dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, rats, hamsters, and some reptiles, according to the website.

Located at 850 Golden Drive, Suite 23, in Blandon, the full-service veterinary clinic is managed by Steve Myers, a graduate from Kutztown University with a bachelor’s in business management in December of 2010 while owning and running Steve Myers Guitar, a private music lesson studio. After spending a year in the retail industry as an assistant manager, he discovered his true passion lies with small business and began working with Dr. Estelle on BFVP.

“His vision of a family-oriented practice speaks volumes about his quality of care, both towards patients and owners, and his philosophy toward business practices makes me believe this practice will be more than just the newest veterinary practice in town, it will be the best!”
