We know that pets aren’t "just animals" - they are important members of the family. We will spend as much time as you and they need to keep them healthy. We stay current with the latest developments in veterinary medicine through frequent continuing education meetings. On difficult, challenging cases we readily refer to the area’s specialty clinics for second opinions and advanced care. All of the staff at VCA Bakerstown Animal Hospital are pet owners. We empathize with you when pets are sick and we celebrate with you when they are well.
At VCA Bakerstown Animal Hospital, it’s our mission to ensure that you and your pet both enjoy as many years of friendship as possible. That’s why we do what we do. Our companion animal practice sees dogs and cats from Gibsonia, Pittsburgh, Mars, Valencia, Allison Park, Butler, Glenshaw, northern Allegheny and southern Butler County. We want to work with pet owners to help their pets live long, happy lives. Our small size enables us to provide the best possible service and respond quickly to the needs of pets and their owners.
When you partner with us, we want you to feel confident that your pet will always receive the best available medicine with us. More importantly, we want you to know that we love that little guy or gal just as much as you do.
Let’s face it…you adore your pet. Whether it’s those big, brown eyes, that fluffy tail or the comical way he tilts his head, your companion is truly special to you.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) represents practitioners in the veterinary community who are passionate about the care of cats and supports its members in improving the health and welfare of feline patients. With a reputation as a leader in the field of feline medicine, the AAFP helps veterinary practices establish a feline-friendly environment that reduces stress for cats during veterinary visits.
The Cat Friendly Practice® program is a leading movement to make veterinary care less stressful for cats and their caregivers. This global initiative is designed to elevate care for cats by assisting practices in developing calming, cat-friendly environments and reducing stress for felines before, during, and after their veterinary visit.
As veterinary professionals, we know that the stress and anxiety associated with taking a pet to the veterinarian is a significant reason why pets don't always receive the medical attention they need. Fear Free℠ veterinary visits reduce feelings of stress, resulting in a better experience for all involved, including pets, owners, and veterinary health care teams. Having a Fear Free℠ Certified Professional can help alleviate your pet's fear, anxiety, and stress when visiting our hospital.
We harness the scale and strength of our global network while acknowledging each individual's contribution. We work locally to improve the lives of all who interact with our brand.
