Centre Hospitalier Vétérinaire Frégis In Paris Joins IVC Evidensia
Frégis, the largest referral hospital in France was founded in 1836 in Paris. It was the very first clinic to practice medicine on pets at a time when vet schools were only training on horses and farm animals. Frégis has always been a pioneer of small animal medicine and was the first clinic to obtain official veterinary hospital status in France. Today they are the largest veterinary hospital in France with over 55 veterinarians and a team of over 110 in total.
