Register, October 26th, 2006.
Renowned in the central
Iowa community for his expertise in the field of veterinary medicine and his compassion
and love for animals, Dr. Anil Regmi is the visionary behind Urban Pet Hospital
& Resort. A professional dedicated to his service and his clients,
he is also known throughout the community for donating time and materials to help
injured pets. In the March 4th, 2004 edition of the Des Moines Register, he is featured
in the article "Chico on the Road to Recovery", for helping an injured and abused
kitten named Chico.
Apart from his involvement
with the operation of Urban Pet Hospital & Resort, he is also
involved in various community service programs such as assisting Animal Rescue League
of Iowa and Animal Protection Society of Iowa with their animal spaying programs.
" Dr. Regmi makes
it possible for us to offer the program." - Mr. Tom Colvin, Director, Animal Rescue
League of Iowa
Dr. Regmi first worked
in Kodiak, Alaska after leaving his home country Nepal. He obtained his veterinary
license at Purdue University in Indiana and came to Des Moines in 1992 with $150/-
in his pocket. He became the first veterinarian at Afford-A-Care pet hospital in
Des Moines, Iowa. In May 2000, he started his own private practice and opened
Urban Pet Hospital in Urbandale, Iowa with a vision of providing the
best possible care for the pets. The success of his private practice earned him
the Iowa Asian Alliance's "Outstanding Asian Business in Iowa" award in 2006.
In November 2007, Dr.
Regmi expanded his practice to include the resort services at a new location and
renamed his establishment as Urban Pet Hospital & Resort.
