The animal clinic is named after the Greek goddess Artemis, who according to old Greek mythology was the protector of the animals. We often see her portraited in literature with a bow and arrow as a symbol of, that she was also the goddess of hunting. She shines in the places where it’s dark and gives us strengths to bring us safely through our fear.
The symbolic behind the goddess represents an approach to animals and humans, which we at Artemis do our best to live up to.
When you arrive at the clinic, then it’s important that you feel safe and content, knowing that we will do our most outstanding to make sure your pet gets the best possible care.
A visit to an animal clinic is often connected with emotions, since the animal is their best friend and a part of the family. We would do our best to make sure you feel safe during the course, so the visit to the clinic is a success for all, whether it’s a health check or a larger operation.
At Artemis it’s always the love for the animals that makes the foundation for our work.
