Oldwick Animal Hospital is a full-service hospital offering medical, surgical, and dental veterinary services. Our staff prides itself on providing progressive, compassionate, exceptional medicine in a state-of-the-art "green" facility. As true advocates for the health of your pet, we seek to enhance - and celebrate - the traditional relationships between the animal, owner, and veterinarian. We also consider communication and education to be essential elements of the care we offer.
Checkups and Vaccinations
At Oldwick Animal Hospital, we encourage annual or semi-annual checkups, based on the health and age of your pet. Vaccinations are recommended based on your pet's lifestyle.
Surgical Services, Including Spay and Neuter
Oldwick Animal Hospital offers complete soft tissue surgical services. Patients are continually assessed while under anesthesia using pulse oximetry, blood pressure monitoring, electrocardiograms, capnography (CO2 levels), & core body temperature readings.
Oldwick Animal Hospital offers digital radiography and dental radiography. Ultrasound services and cardiology services are scheduled as needed.
Oldwick Animal Hospital is a strong advocate of dental health for pets. We offer tips on brushing and other ways pet owners can help prevent tooth decay/gum disease. Our doctors routinely do oral exams during checkups and suggest dental cleanings when needed. A dog or cat having a dental procedure will stay the day with us, as cleanings are done under anesthesia.
Microchips can be implanted during your pet's regular exam. The chips we supply are made by HomeAgain. HomeAgain is a 134 kHz I.S.O. compliant microchip, which complies with I.S.O. standard 11784 and 11785 - the standards for travel internationally. We will insert the chip, scan to make sure it can be read, and do the paperwork for the first year's registration.
We do routine testing (fecal, urine, blood) right here in the hospital for immediate results. Cultures, biopsies, vaccine titers and comprehensive blood tests are sent to an outside lab.
Oldwick Animal Hospital has a comprehensive pet pharmacy for your convenience. We can even order specially prepared and deliciously flavored medications for the hard-to-pill pet! We also have hypo allergenic and sensitive skin shampoos, flea and tick prevention items, & heartworm preventatives.
Some pets have medical conditions that can be managed with a special diet. Oldwick Animal Hospital offers prescription food for a variety of issues, including: Sensitive skin, Sensitive stomach, Urinary and Intestinal issues, Diabetes, Renal disease, Food allergies, Weight issues, Dental health, Extra vitamins/minerals and calories for growing kittens and puppies, and Healthy and low calorie treats.
If you are traveling with your pet, either domestically or internationally, a health certificate will be required. These must be completed within ten to fourteen days of travel. Please make sure you have the address of where you and your pet will be going with you, as this is part of the information required on the certificate.
Cycle Of Life:
We, at Oldwick Animal Hospital, are committed to providing medical care and guidance from newborn to the aged patient. Throughout an animal's life, our goal is to guide the medical, and often emotional, decisions that have to be made. We respect your pet's dignity and comfort, and will make every effort to protect him or her from pain and fear.
At Oldwick Animal Hospital, we welcome many species of pets, including this sweet bunny.
Dr. Cailles has been practicing veterinary medicine in New Jersey for over twenty years. Prior to building this practice, Dr. Cailles spent many years working both at Martinsville Veterinary Clinic and at the emergency service hospital, Animerge, in Raritan.
Dr. Cailles graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1989 (and is also a proud undergraduate of the University of Wisconsin, where she majored in bacteriology and microbiology). A native of southern Indiana, Jan moved to central New Jersey to begin her career in small animal medicine. In 2002, Jan moved to Tewksbury Township, where she helped to design and build her own home. She married a lifelong Tewksbury resident, Glenn Likus, and they are the parents of daughter Margeaux.
Dr. Cailles� professional interests include emergency medicine, zoo animal medicine, and family practice. Her professional goal has been to practice a high level of medicine in a comfortable environment for the pet, the owner, and the staff. The Oldwick Animal Hospital is the culmination of this goal. Dr. Cailles feels privileged to provide care to the pets of Tewksbury Township and the surrounding communities with a staff that is unsurpassed in skill and compassion.
A native of Tewksbury Township, Dr. Anna Owren Fayne is thrilled to be caring for the animals in her hometown. Growing up in Tewksbury's village of Mountainville, Dr. Owren Fayne completed her bachelor of science degree at Cook College before obtaining her VMD at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.
Anna and her husband, Justin, have a young daughter, Evangeline, and they share their home with two cats, Odin and Wyatt. Interests outside her professional life include gardening, spending time with her family, and slowly (but steadily!) remodeling her hundred-year-old home.
Dr Owren Fayne's professional interests include wound management and family practice with an emphasis on client communication and education.
Prior to practicing in Oldwick, Dr. Owren Fayne spent two years at a busy five-doctor veterinary hospital in Stroudsburg, PA. She has been with Oldwick Animal Hospital since the opening in 2009.
As a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Semanchik is excited to start her career where her journey began nine years ago: Oldwick Animal Hospital. Dr. Semanchik was raised just down the street from the animal hospital, and its establishment was a turning point in her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian. Still in high school but eager to gain experience, Dr. Semanchik began working at the hospital as kennel help in May of 2009. She soon advanced to the role of veterinary technician, enjoying the added responsibility and interaction with clients.
When it came time to apply to college, Dr. Semanchik could not help but entertain Dr. Cailles� alma mater. After one visit to Madison, WI, Dr. Semanchik knew it was where she wanted to enroll. She spent the next four years pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology (as had Dr. Cailles) and working at the veterinary school in the Department of Surgical Sciences. Her summers were spent at home, where she continued to gain more advanced experience at the hospital she loved.
Dr. Semanchik considered a few options for veterinary school, but she was ultimately drawn back to Dairyland. While in veterinary school, Dr. Semanchik maintained a position as a student nurse in the hospital�s Small Animal Critical Care Unit. She also participated in community outreach programs that offered free veterinary care to homeless individuals with pets and after-school programs for urban youth.
What Dr. Semanchik enjoys most about veterinary medicine is nurturing the human-animal bond and communicating with clients to determine the best options for their family. Dr. Semanchik is excited to help her home community navigate the joys and sorrows of pet ownership.
A New Jersey native, Dr. Scholz began her journey into veterinary medicine by working as a small animal veterinary technician during college. She earned a B.S. in Animal Science from Rutgers University-Cook College and a M.S. in Instructional Technology from Drexel University before starting vet school. She received her DVM from Ross University in 2007 after completing clinical rotations at Auburn University.
After graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Scholz returned to New Jersey to complete an equine internship, then stayed on as an associate at Running �S� Equine Veterinary Services for 6 years. She then worked at Bucks County Equine where she was exposed to alternative therapies. She started her studies with the Chi Institute at that time and completed her Acupuncture training in 2014.
In February 2015, Dr. Scholz started her own practice so that she could treat horses and small animals with an integrative approach. She believes it is important to focus on the patient rather than the disease process to provide the highest level of care possible. Dr. Scholz is excited to share her philosophy and knowledge with the Oldwick Animal Hospital family.
Dr. Scholz�s professional interests include internal medicine, dermatology and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) modalities such as Acupuncture and Herbal Therapy. She is working towards becoming a Certified TCVM Practitioner as she continues her studies in Food Therapy and Tui-na, a form of Chinese medical massage.
In her free time, Dr. Scholz enjoys cooking, spending time with her friends and family, and catering to the needs of her fur babies, 2 dogs, 2 cats and a horse. She is an active member of both Readington Trail Association and the Hunterdon County Animal Response Team.
