Merger with the practice Apel

01—09—2020 (Altano Gruppe) Merger with the practice Apel

Turbulent times lie behind us. All the more reason for us to be pleased about positive news!

We welcome the veterinary practice Dr. Apel in Krefeld, which joined our group on September 1st.
Not far from the A 57, exit Charlotterring, the practice is located close to the Krefeld racecourse and is also expanding our catchment area into the Ruhr area as a referral practice of the horse clinic Karthaus in Dülmen.

The practice was founded in the 1960s by Dr. Gandras and Dr. Stieger. In 1980, Dr. Gerd Apel joined the group practice as an assistant and has been the sole director since 1985, first as a partner and later as the sole manager.
Dr. Gerd Apel and his team, consisting of one additional veterinarian and 3 employees, is specialized in the veterinary care of horses. In addition to orthopedics, internal medicine and diagnostics, the practice is very active in the race track service, not least because of its good connections.

With two very well equipped vehicles, the team cares for patients within a radius of 80 km around the clock.
Also in the spirit of Altano the racehorse we are very happy to welcome the practice in our group and thus strengthen our competence in this field.
