Description

The Animal Hospital of Dauphin County has been caring for pets in the greater Harrisburg and Hershey communities since 1962. We started out in a small, three-bedroom house (now home to our business offices). After several expansions, we now work in a 6,000 square-foot, fully equipped animal hospital.

Today our knowledgeable veterinarians and dedicated tech staff provide the best care possible for your pets. This starts with state-of-the art diagnostics and wellness care. It also includes listening carefully to you, our partner in your pet’s healthcare.

We focus on prevention and early detection of diseases, which allows for more effective treatment and a longer life for our pets. We update our testing methods and treatments through continuing education and by consulting with specialists in many disciplines.
