Has your pet had their regular
wellness exam?

Keeping your pet healthy requires more than vaccines ("shots").  An exam by a veterinarian is the most important step in maintaining your pet's health.  If your pet has not been examined in the past 6-12 months, please contact us today to make an appointment.  We will check your pet from "nose to tail" and discuss our findings in everyday language.  Based on our exam and discussion we can recommend prevention, testing and treatment strategies that best suit you and your pet.  We look forward to working with you! 

Somerset Veterinary Hospital in Somerset, PA is a full service companion animal hospital. It is our commitment to provide quality veterinary care throughout the life of your pet. Our services and facilities are designed to assist in routine preventive care for young, healthy pets; early detection and treatment of disease as your pet ages; and complete medical and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime.

 

We understand the special role your pet plays in your family and are dedicated to becoming your partner in your pet's health care. We treat your pet as we would our own. Our goal is to practice the highest quality medicine and surgery with compassion and an emphasis on client education. Our entire healthcare team is committed to providing personal attention to the unique concerns of each individual pet owner.
