Our Approach

We believe pet owners should be empowered to be part of the active decision making process when it comes to their loved one’s care. We strive to be sure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions and to feel comfortable with all aspects of the medical plan. Customer service is at the forefront of what drives us in our day to day interactions with the families we work with at Derry Animal Hospital.

A Dream Come True

“It’s always been my dream to have a veterinary practice and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to carry on a legacy of care at Derry Animal Hospital and to take the clinic to the next level.”
