Our hospital was opened in 1984 and we have been working hard to keep your animals safe and happy ever since. We have changed locations since opening; the clinic was located within a trailer during some of the early years! Every year, we continue to grow and improve in order to give your pets access to the newest and best diagnostics services and treatments.


After a post graduate internship at Gentilly Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Penny Serio purchased the practice from the family of Dr. Billy North. At that time, she had no employees and operated a mixed animal practice with rural character. Over the years, the staff has steadily grown in size and the practice has become exclusively companion animal oriented. Various support staff have been employed throughout the years of the clinic's existence, including Dr. Penny's daughter, Dr. Jaqueline, who is currently practicing in Florida.

Dr. Penny is also actively involved in Han Mu Do martial arts and runs classes in the evening with her husband in the attached martial arts studio. Dr. Penny is a chief master and her husband is a grand master (which puts them both in the top 3 practicing han mu do instructors in the world!).
