About Us

We are a three-doctor, mixed-animal practice that is located in the quaint, rural town of Waterford, Pennsylvania.  It is not uncommon to encounter an occasional horse and buggy here along this busy little stretch of Routes 19 and 97, as they course through the heart of the community that acts as a thoroughfare to Erie. 

The friendly, small-town atmosphere is one thing that founder of the practice, Dr. Robert Bell was looking for when he decided to open the doors of this veterinary practice in May of 1997.  Animal Hospital of Waterford, P.C., found its humble beginnings in a small, storefront office about ½ mile down the road from where the office now stands. 

First providing services on plywood and a couple saw horses as an exam table (for some of our VERY first small animal clients), and a single large-animal work truck, our office has since grown to progressive, proactive, modern veterinary hospital with four full-time veterinarians on staff.

Our small animal hospital consists of 3 fully stocked exam rooms, a surgery suite, treatment and dental areas equipped with an ultrasonic dental unit and an electrocautery unit.  A designated x-ray room with digital developing equipment allows us to take and evaluate radiographs within minutes.  Full, in-house Idexx laboratory equipment allows us to run blood samples in-clinic and enables prompt treatment of critical cases, and we provide isoflurane anesthesia with complete biometric monitoring for all surgical procedures.  All after-hours emergency work for our small animal clientele is covered by the NWPA Pet Emergency Clinic in Erie, PA.  

For our large animal clients, we have 2 fully-stocked, large-animal mobile veterinary units that are on the road full-time, providing routine and emergency service to our clients throughout most of Erie County as well as parts of Crawford and Warren Counties in PA.  We also cover part of Chautauqua County, NY.  After-hours emergency services are provided to our established large animal clientele via our very own paging network.
