Canyon Country Animal Hospital has a new location in the same shopping center it’s called home for the past three years.

The animal hospital moved earlier this year to 2516 Broadway in the Redlands Marketplace. The building formerly housed Aztecas Family Mexican Restaurant until it moved to 705 Horizon Drive.

After a remodel, Canyon Country Animal Hospital moved into the new location Oct. 31.

The animal hospital was previously at 2518 Broadway Suite B10, next to Redlands Liquor. The liquor store will expand now that the hospital has moved.

Dr. Kyle C. Dunn, the animal hospital’s owner, said the new location adds about 1,400 square feet of space.

“It’s our own free-standing space,” Dunn said. “It’s nicer for clients to have parking. I think we’re better neighbors too.”

Prior to locating in the shopping center, the hospital rented space in the Redlands Pet Clinic, Dunn said.

The animal hospital serves all species of pets, but mostly sees dogs and cats. Dunn is the only veterinarian on staff, but is hoping to grow soon. He has six employees on staff.

The hospital is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Canyon Country is hosting an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 11 for people to come in, meet the staff and tour the new location. For more information, search for Canyon Country Animal Hospital on Facebook.
