Nursing Team

Macungie Animal Hospital is dedicated to providing quality medical and surgical healthcare with a professional, educated and experienced medical team. On our team we have five licensed veterinary nurses, four seasoned veterinary nurses, and two nursing assistants. Their collective goal is to ensure that every pet receives the most stress free experience while still meeting all of the patient’s medical needs.

Our highly trained team attends continuing education courses to stay up to date on the most recent technology, techniques and medications. New ideas are discussed and evaluated in order to build plans and training sessions to implement beneficial improvements for our patients and practice.

Macungie Animal Hospital believes in the quality of familiarity, so we have established nurse and doctor teams. This allows both our nurses and doctors to become familiar with the clients and their pets on an individual level. This familiarity facilitates more comprehensive follow up care and less patient anxiety. Your pet will have the benefit of medical professionals that work together as a team to meet his or her needs.
