Our History

The story of Happy Tails Veterinary Speciality, started in 1986 as a private practice by veterinarian Dr. Umesh Karkare, in Mumbai.

In 2010, Mr. Venkateshwaran Krishnan and Dr. Karkare came together to start the Happy Tails brand. This extended the practice to the current location at Mangal Smriti building at Khar. What began as a private practice 25 years ago, from a small garage in a residential building; is one of India’s reputed private veterinary practices, with a full-service, 24*7 emergency and critical care facility.

The next clinic to be setup was the one in Govandi, that started in 2013, primarily to serve as an emergency centre with the latest equipment necessary for advanced treatment. Most intrinsic surgeries and trauma care services were delivered through this clinic. Over a period of time, the clinic in Govandi would develop itself into a two-level facility with a fully functional Operation Theatre.

The need for a veterinary facility that was available round the clock still remained. Especially in cases where post-operative care was not fully possible with regulations not permitting us to keep the patients with us overnight. Also to deal with medical emergencies that could arise at odd hours. The need was for a veterinary healthcare facility that could deal with emergencies and provide critical care at all times of the day and night.

The latest facility – the Happy Tails Veterinary Speciality 24*7 Emergency and Critical Care Facility is a culmination of this dream. To provide the best in veterinary medical care at all times.
