NORWAY — The Norway Veterinary Clinic is now open at 1105 Seventh Ave. in Norway as part of the long-standing Iron Mountain Animal Hospital that has been serving the area since 1972.

Making the announcement about the new clinic, Dr. Brian Scott and his wife, Michelle, as well as the entire staff of the Iron Mountain Animal Hospital are excited to offer a state-of-the-art companion veterinary clinic in Norway.

The Iron Mountain Animal Hospital has been an American Animal Hospital Association-accredited practice since it was established 45 years ago.

“We have a lot of clients and staff that live in the wonderful Norway community. For years we’ve wanted to share our services and preventative care philosophies with the entire Dickinson County and its surrounding areas,” Brian Scott said.

The Norway Veterinary Clinic will start out being open Monday through Thursday, with Dr. Jordan Hughey heading the clinic two days, Scott one day a week and another doctor from the Iron Mountain staff the other day.

Hughey is a graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University. She lives with her husband, two children and multiple pets in the Norway area.

“I love working with the people and their pets from the city of Norway and surrounding communities. This new clinic is a wonderful addition to the town I call home,” Hughey said.

The new clinic also will provide 24-hour emergency care by appointment that will be handled by the Iron Mountain Animal Hospital’s on-call service.

A special open house for the public will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Norway clinic. Scott said they look forward to sharing their staff and new facility with the community.

“It will be a fun day that includes free food, activities and a bounce house for children. We will be giving tours and offering special products. We will be launching our Referral Rewards Program for both the Norway and Iron Mountain locations,” said Stephanie Mieras, certified veterinary practice manager for both locations.

She added that anyone who schedules an appointment for one of the services or purchases a featured product will receive a ticket for a chance to win a Dyson vacuum cleaner along with many other prizes.

Making this clinic addition possible, Scott added, has been the demand from clients, an excellent staff, advancements in paperless records along with digital diagnostic capabilities.

“We are excited to have the ability to offer quality and compassionate veterinary medicine close to home for all of the families with pets in the entire region,” he said.

Scott noted he’s very proud of his staff and their commitment to provide top veterinary service. He said they are a large family that’s highly motivated and trained in veterinary medicine, surgery and preventative care. And since they live throughout the U.P. and northern Wisconsin, they want to serve the community well.

“Our group of professionals are unique in that we strive to enhance our knowledge and expertise as one unit. We value individual client-doctor relationships, yet we continually share our cases, thoughts and expertise with one another. We constantly take advantage of each other’s strengths to give our patients the best possible care available. This will only be enhanced within the Norway Veterinary Clinic,” Scott said.

Other members of the staff in addition to Scott and Hughey are Dr. Lindsy Alessandrini, Dr. Kellie Pesola, Dr. Andrea Wodzinski, Dr. Kate Brakefield and Dr. Jim Nicolas.

“We feel very fortunate to help others by enhancing the human-animal bond. We are excited to become entrenched in this great community and start what will be a long-lasting community proud relationship,” Scott said.
