Cooperstown Veterinary Associates services include routine and specialty services, surgical consultations and operations, boarding, bathing, and all-around compassionate care for pets, according to the clinic’s website.
Saturday’s open house will present information about animal care, staff said, and an opportunity to see the facility and equipment such as an X-ray machine.

Healing arts, more offered at Oneonta business
A “Tree of Life” welcomes consumers to a newly opened consignment shop that also offers healing arts, self-help support, crystal treatments and more.
