We are sad to announce that Dr. Dana Livingston is moving to Minnesota and will be leaving our Route 516 Animal Hospital Family effective August 27th. We are posting a letter on Dr. Livingston's behalf that she has written to all of our dear clients. We will miss her and wish her and her family all the best.

To the Wonderful Clients at Route 516 Animal Hospital:

Nearly 6 years ago I was offered the opportunity to join the team at Route 516 Animal Hospital.  Since that time, I have enjoyed providing high quality veterinary care and learning from each and every case that I have seen.  Thank you for welcoming me into the practice and entrusting me to serve your precious pets.  I am very grateful for your loyalty and support.

Because of this, it is with bittersweet emotions that I have to announce I am leaving the Route 516 family.  They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder and so I will be relocating with my family back to Minnesota.  This has not been an easy decision; however, a major contributing factor is the opportunity my husband has to further his career.  We are also hoping to avoid the disruption to our son’s friendships and schooling that would occur if we were to move as he grew older.

I know all of you will be well taken care of by the rest of the doctors and staff at Route 516.  There is a wonderful camaraderie here and I am sorry to be leaving.   If there is anything you need addressed or would like to discuss before my departure, I encourage you to call and schedule an appointment with me between now and August 27th.  It has been a great pleasure getting to know you and your furry companions.  I will truly miss all of you and I wish you all the best now and in the future.


Dana L. Livingston, DVM
