This news item is about: Operating a veterinary practice in Buffalo, which has the third highest poverty rate among the nation's largest cities, was not an easy proposition for R. Reed Stevens'85, D.V.M. '00 when he bought the Ellicott Small Animal Hospital in a downtown neighborhood in 2006. A native of Buffalo, Reed quickly noticed that the hospital was serving two types of clients: those who wanted the highest level of care for their pets, and those who could only pay the bare minimum to help their pets get by. The first set of clients was spending $250 and up per visit, while the second group would pay no more than $75.
