The Care We Give Is More Than Medical
At Startown Veterinary Hospital, our approach to veterinary care is different from many animal hospitals. Our hospital is a very personal, one doctor practice where you can be assured of seeing the same veterinarian on each and every visit. Our highly trained nursing and office staff are gentle, patient, and kind. Be assured that we will always treat your pets as if they were our own. We believe that no one cares how much you know until they know how much you care.
Dr. Pennell considers himself to be your second 'family doctor' and is committed to providing you and your pet with a very personal veterinary health care experience. This elevated level of care and attention allows you and your pet to develop a relationship with him built on trust, comfort, and confidence.
