ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospitals Palm Beach County celebrates a full year of helping pets heal in Western communities on World Veterinary Day, Saturday, April 30.

To thank veterinarians, clients and the community, ACCESS is hosting its Birthday Party and Open House event on Saturday, April 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free and pets are accepted. The event will begin with a ribbon cutting and breakfast with diplomats, members of the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, the public and local veterinarians. After the grand opening, guests can tour the hospital, enjoy a free burger from Woody’s, hang out with Dennys from the WRMF KVJ Morning Show, and enjoy family-friendly activities like a bouncy house, balloon sculpting, and face painting.

Guests who arrive at this fun event can enter to win raffle items including pet baskets, pet gift cards and more. Attendees can also enjoy the Deluxe Burger Bar provided by Woody’s Burgers, popcorn, shaved ice and a selection of cold drinks. Guests can also commemorate the occasion by stopping in the photo tent to have their photo taken with family, friends and pets. The photos are printed on site.

Behind-the-scenes tours of the hospital will begin at 10:30 a.m. and begin at the hospital entrance every half hour. Tour guests will learn about the process a pet will go through when visiting the emergency room or during a consultation with one of the specialist doctors. The tour will include an overview of the emergency room, intensive care, surgical suits, MRI, CT and X-ray equipment.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Dennys with the KVJ Morning Show will be on hand with games, giveaways and music. Everyone will walk away with a gift bag containing gifts and pet treats. There will be a few vendors on site, including K9 Resorts and Stella & Chewy’s, for attendees to visit while waiting for their hospital visit to begin.

ACCESS is owned by veterinarians and loved by animals. When your pets are sick or injured, treatment usually begins with your veterinarian. Occasionally, pets need to be referred to advanced intensive care, emergency and/or specialist services (ACCESS). At ACCESS, ER-trained physicians, board-certified veterinary specialists, and veterinary nurses provide diagnostic evaluation, treatment, and care around the clock in a state-of-the-art veterinary hospital with interconnected technology enabling real-time collaboration between medical teams to provide the highest level of pet care.
