He worked for a brief period at small animal practices in eastern Massachusetts before returning to Lynn to pursue his dream of practice ownership.

Dr. Dunn has been in private practice since 1980.

In 1988 a new building at 1 Neptune Blvd was completed. The new hospital allowed for more equipment and technologies to utilize the most recent advances in veterinary diagnostics, medicine, and surgery.
