Tremont Residents Have Something New to Bark About!

by Katie McCoy

Long time residents of Tremont cringe when someone mentions the old Rodeo Bar & Grill on West 14th.

Tremont resident, Katie McCoy, and her business partners, Sara Tippins and Bob Litkovitz, are hoping to turn the building into something the city is proud of.  “We plan to keep it simple, calling ourselves ‘Tremont Animal Clinic’ or ‘TAC’ for short.”

The two veterinarians, Tippins and McCoy, are currently practicing in Akron and have always wanted to open their own practice.

Dr. Litkovitz is currently practicing in the Cleveland area but was looking for a change. After months of searching, they settled on the storefront location 3148 West 14th Street.

While TAC’s primary focus is serving Tremont-area residents, they felt the location was central to many surrounding cities and are hoping to expose others to Tremont’s eclectic culture.

McCoy and Litkovitz grew up in Cleveland and Tippins and her fiancée live in Lakewood. The veterinarians love Cleveland and wanted to be a part of the growth and positive energy in the city.

They also liked the idea of renovating an older building and making it as unique as Tremont is.

The doctors hope to fill a niche that other vet c

linics in the area are not currently filling. They plan to take appointments and have secluded exam rooms to keep patients separate from each other.

Tremont Animal Clinic will be a full-service veterinary clinic with on-site lab equipment, an x-ray machine, and surgical equipment.

They currently are slated to open in late December for wellness/routine appointments and hope to be open as a full-service clinic in early January.

Stay tuned for info on their upcoming open house and be sure to find their page on Facebook for more information.

    My wife and I have been taking out cats to Dr Bob for more than 15 years because of the special care he gives each animal and their owners; he is un-paralleled….We are glad to hear about all 3 Vets opening this new place in Tremont, and I’m sure they will make a great team of care-givers.

    This note is for Dr. Bob from Max the big cat in kitty heaven: “Dear Dr. Bob, I tried to hang on until your new office opened, but kidney disease got the best of me on December 21, 2013. I promise that my mom and dad will see you soon as you open with my brothers, Gennaro and Peekabo. PS, sorry I didn’t behave better when you took care of me. Love, Max.”

    I was so sad and shocked to hear that Dr. Bob had left Gateway when I went to pick up some routine meds for my doggie in late December. I began questioning the staff for any information that they could give me and one person finally informed me to look for a new clinic opening in the Tremont area. I googled it and found it ! …..I’m so very happy and will definitely be bringing my dog to the new clinic… My dog is eleven years old and has been under Dr. Bob care since he was 8 weeks old. He is the best Doctor ever and has taken good care of my dog. I live on the far southeast side and have travelled 30 miles (one way) for doctor’s visits with Dr. Bob but it’s been well worth the compute when you recieving excellent care.

    I’m excited for you all and wish you nothing but the best!
