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.
