About Us

Bay Area Veterinary Hospital opened its doors on Kent Island in August of 1996, offering both Western medicine and Acupuncture. Our wonderful staff has always consisted of devoted individuals and has included high school students and pre-vet students, among other who have a special love of animals

Since our conception, we have striven to provide a wellness approach by recommending the nutritional benefits of fresh whole foods, regular exercise, and limited individualized vaccination programs.

We added Chinese Herbs to our pharmacy in 2003. Then we grew out of our space next to K-mart with only 2 exam rooms and cramped quarters. After one and half years of construction, we opened our stand alone Hospital in Chester on March 3rd, 2008 and now enjoy 5 exam rooms with wide open spaces in which to receive our pet clients.

Our latest, but not least, addition to the practice is Dr. Sharon Albright in June of 2008 with her many years of experience and special interests in dog training and behavior modification.
