a few words about us

Animal General of Cranberry Township opened its doors in 2001. What started as a one-doctor practice has grown into a diverse four-doctor team dedicated to providing exceptional care for your beloved family pets. We pride ourselves on staying educated and current with the highest standard of care and compassion offered in today’s veterinary practices.

In 2020, Animal General expanded with the aquisition of Gardens Veterinary Hospital. We really outgrew Animal General. We now have more space to better serve our customers.

We are as devoted to your pets as much as we are to ours. To us, that means we stay abreast of the cutting edge therapies and technologies as they develop. We attend several continuing education seminars each year as well as attend online webinars to achieve this goal. This allows us to translate safe and effective therapies for the needs of your pet(s) as soon as they are available.

We also take an approach that prevention and education are always the best protocols for the health and well being of your pet. As such, we are passionate in our recommendations that we believe will allow your pets to maximize their quality and span of life.

“Don’t just live and let live, but live and help live,” is a motto that has deep meaning to each and every one of us, here at Gardens Veterinary Hospital. It’s been that way since the inception and will continue to be a driving idea behind our recommendations.
