The Chagrin Animal Clinic has been serving the Chagrin Valley area since 1987.
The clinic was born on March 1, 1987, when Dr. Eldridge purchased the practice of retiring veterinarian, Don Weibel. The practice became the Chagrin Animal Clinic and continued to function in the original building on Chagrin Road for twenty years.
In August, 2007, the clinic was moved into a new state of the art building at 16680 West Park Circle Drive in Chagrin Falls (Bainbridge).
The practice is operated by James Eldridge, D.V.M. and Caryn Scaravelli, D.V.M.. They were married in 1982 and have 2 sons, Bryan and Kevin. Both doctors graduated from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1981.
Both doctors are members of the AVMA, OVMA, and Geauga Veterinary Medical Association.
Heartland Veterinary Partners is proud to offer externship programs throughout the Midwest.
The veterinarians and staff at HVP practices feel a strong commitment to give back to the profession by contributing to the education of veterinary students.

We are also happy to provide insight for you on issues related to business, practice management, and career placement as it interests you.
