On Monday, the Animal Hospital of Antioch announced it was closing its doors on January 31, 2018. They offered two recommendations for clients to take their animals after their closure.

Additionally, Dr. Gray will continue to serve clients needs at Lafayette Animal Hospital.

Here is a copy of their email they sent their clients:

  3. So sad and sorry to hear of this news. Dr Gray is the most compassionate and caring vet I have ever known. We owe him so many thanks for what he has done for several generations of pets ( Molly especially) and for us. We will always have a soft spot in our hearts for everything he and his wonderful staff have done for us. We will try and make the trek over to Lafayette because of this. Brittany & Joanna, we wish you much happiness and best of luck in your new endeavors. Thanks so much for always being there for us and our fur babies.

  4. It’s disgusting that a business has to close because of the garbage that has invaded our streets while the city council and the police do nothing. Living in the parking lot, urinating against the building, fighting at the front door, etc. This is business as usual in Antioch.
