Animal Specialty Center began as a dream for Dr. Richard Joseph nearly a decade ago. In the fall of 2007 it became a reality - a comprehensive, purpose-built, specialty veterinary center providing clients, veterinarians and specialists with the most innovative diagnostic tools and advanced treatments available.

The facility's focus is on expanding the horizons of veterinary care. From developing new therapies and acquiring state-of-the-art equipment to continuing professional development - everything at Animal Specialty Center has been designed to improve the quality of life for our patients.

The animal hospital’s unique collaborative environment offers comprehensive support to referring veterinarians, providing them with everything they need from consultation to operating room participation. To help keep veterinarians community informed of the latest developments in veterinary medicine, we offer Continuing Education several times a year for both veterinarians and veterinary technicians.

While the professional and technical aspects of the center take a prominent role, Animal Specialty Center never forgets its primary mission: Keeping people and pets together, while enjoying longer, happier and healthier lives. Our mission statement is “Where your pet’s health is our top priority and excellent service is our goal.” We strive to live these words everyday and do our best to make sure that the experience you have at the Animal Specialty Center is the best that it can be.

We look forward to working with you and your primary veterinarian as, together, we continue to expand the horizons of veterinary medicine and provide the best care possible for you and your pet .
