The ribbon cutting and opening of the Spot On Veterinary Hospital & Hotel took place Dec. 20 at 184 Selleck St. in Stamford. Mayor David Martin, state Rep. Fred Camillo and Gary Dell’Abate, an animal advocate and executive producer of “The Howard Stern Show,” were among those attending.

Veterinarian Philip Putter founded the 16,000-square-foot facility. In addition to a veterinary hospital, there’s an all-suite pet hotel, a dog day care center and a grooming spa. There are plans to add a pet adoption center.

The building was designed with the environment in mind and is equipped with 151 solar panels providing the majority of its electrical needs, LED lighting, tempered windows and an advanced HVAC and air filtration system.

Putter said, “We hope that the entire experience at Spot On breaks the mold of the traditional animal care model and encourages a new standard of pet care that caters to clients and their furry family members.”
