We are  Adirondack Veterinary Service


Adirondack Veterinary Service Building

From the moment you walk through our covered porch entrance we do everything to make sure you and your pet feel at ease. Your pet gives you wholehearted and unconditional love so when they need medical care we want you to know you came to the right place. We only see one patient at a time so our doctors and staff can give you and your pet their undivided attention. We strive to make personalized care our forte!

Our practice was established in 1992 as a large animal service to local dairies and horse stables in Oneida County, New York. In the year 2000, after an extensive remodel to the building we are in, we moved to our current facility and expanded our care to include dogs and cats. 


Enjoy browsing through our site. In it you will find useful information about our staff and the services we provide. In addition, there are articles about equine and pet care you can peruse. We have also provided several links to other sites that promote optimum pet and horse health. Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have about the services we offer or pet health information you might need.
