Savannah Animal Hospital Founders Retire, Leave Practice in Good Hands

The founders of Savannah Animal Hospital, Drs. Bob Pedigo and Andi Richter officially retired from coaching on November 26.

Established in October 1988 at 33818 Wescoats Road, Lewes, Savannah Animal Hospital has become one of the leading veterinary clinics in the region. Its doctors, veterinarians and staff have cared for thousands of pets and their families over the years.

“The journey from a small mixed animal practice in an old house that also served as our young family’s home, to the current first small animal hospital that exists today has been beyond exciting,” said Richter.

SAH will continue to operate under the ownership of Drs. Christine Clark, Erin Giebel and Melissa Schwarmann.

Pedigo and Richter will continue to split their time between their homes in Delaware and Kentucky.

“Over the years with a fabulous team of employees, SAH’s mission to serve people through their pets has provided us with a place to help others since 1988,” said Pedigo. “We have been through a lot together as the practice has grown and evolved. The loyalty we’ve experienced over the years has been incredible, and the relationships we’ve developed with families through their pets are dear to us. We are very grateful for our tenure at SAH.
