VCA Delaware Valley Animal Hospital

VCA Delaware Valley Animal Hospital is thrilled to announce that it will be moving in April to a new, larger and upgraded location just 1.2 miles from its Fairless Hills office.

Its new address, still in Falls Township, is 183B Oxford Valley Road in Langhorne (19047), located in the Oxford Crossing Office Complex.

“We outgrew our old building, so it was time to find a new place,” says Hospital Manager Marilyn Katz. “We began planning for this move a year ago, and renovations of the new building started in July.”

The new site is triple the size of the former location and completely renovated inside so it looks brand new.

“We have doubled the number of our exam rooms from three to six and increased the size of each one, providing a nicer setting for our families and patients,” describes Marilyn.

As a result of this additional space, VCA will be hiring a new staff veterinarian to join its current four doctors. Another highlight of VCA’s Langhorne office features new expanded state-of- the-art dental and surgical suites, which will include new equipment and lighting.

An expanded pharmacy will also be available on-site. Still another amenity at VCA’s new office is a much larger, more comfortable waiting room with a large flat-screen TV, new seating and a beverage station.

Also for your convenience, VCA will now offer a separate check-in and check-out area, enabling you to get in and out faster. A new large retail area will display pet food and retail items, such as dental supplies, odor neutralizing products, adaptil sprays and much more for you and your pet.

Remaining the same will be the quality of care provided by VCA’s dedicated vets, managers, technicians, receptionists and assistants. They will continue to provide compassionate veterinary services for every stage of your pet’s lives, whether you have a dog, cat or a “pocket pet.”

Some of the “pocket pets” seen at this practice include hamsters, rabbits, gerbils, ferrets, and guinea pigs. Although VCA’s veterinarians are highly trained to care for sick pets, a big focus of this practice is on preventative medicine to help your pet stay healthy.

As a member of the VCA family, vets at VCA Delaware Valley Animal Hospital have access to extensive medical resources, including the VCA knowledge base, which allows their doctors to tap into the collective knowledge of over 4,000 VCA veterinarians.

The VCA Delaware Valley Animal Hospital provides routine surgical procedures like spaying, neutering, soft tissue surgery, lump removals, and various dental procedures. However, for truly advanced veterinary care, the VCA Delaware Valley Animal Hospital has affiliations with VCA Specialty Hospitals and local Emergency/Specialty hospitals that provide state-of- the-art care in orthopedic surgery, physical therapy, advanced oncology and even cutting-edge treatment like stem cell therapy.

VCA Delaware Valley Animal Hospital is unique from some other VCA animal hospitals because two of its four vets are certified in veterinary acupuncture.

“Acupuncture can be very effective in treating pets with arthritis, acute injury and for pain management,” says Marilyn.

In addition to acupuncture, some of the vets at this practice also provide homeopathy and nutritional approaches to treatment by combining conventional medicine with a holistic approach.
