Summer 2017.

​We will be relocating to a new building in Tamaqua sometime this summer or early fall! We have taken ownership of the previous community center building near Rite-Aid.  Renovations are well underway. Our new hospital will have better parking and accessibility, including a ramp to the entrance for arthritic pets (and people)   We will have a more spacious interior with a separate waiting area for cats and timid pets. There will be a designated treatment room for laser therapy as well as ultrasound.  Our kennel area will be greatly expanded from our current situation, and we have added an additional larger exam room than anything we have now.  We outgrew our current space years ago and are tired of tripping over each other all day long.  We have felt that our hospital now doesn't reflect the high standards of care we provide. The new hospital will give everyone more space!  You can check pictures of our remodeling progress as we move ahead with the project on our Facebook page.

We have updated our ultrasound machine to a state-of-the-art GE Logiq model. This ultrasound machine is a popular model used by human ultrasonographers. Our ultrasound images are far superior to our older machine that had served us well for the past 10 years. We  have been able to provide even better ultrasound exams than previously.  Dr. Kropp plans on attending several advanced ultrasound courses this year to continue to build on her ultrasound experience.

​​ 

In order to be able to accommodate more clients we are offering Saturday hours once  a month.  If you need a Saturday appointment, call the hospital to check availability. 

We are excited about the addition of Laser Therapy to our hospital! Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols.  Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet's unique health status.  Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or an injury, healing from wounds or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.
