VCA New Hartford Animal Hospital first opened its doors in 1978 under the direction of Dr. Frank Mondi, a graduate of the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The hospital was built on a foundation of integrity, honesty and compassion where we continue to believe in higher standards for healthier pets. Our family promise is to partner with you and your pet to provide high quality veterinary care for a happy and healthy life.
Our practice is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association and is also certified as a Fear Free Practice. These dual certifications ensure your pet is our highest priority and will be well cared for by our dedicated team of veterinary professionals.
We love great pet owners like you. Come join our growing family!

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. Everyone on our team is a Fear Free℠ Certified Professional and can help alleviate your pet's fear, anxiety, and stress when visiting our hospital.
VCA New Hartford Animal Hospital is proud to be the only practice in New York State to be a dual certified practice, holding both the AAHA accreditation and the Fear Free Practice Certification.
Come see why we are different!
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.
