Caring, Compassionate Veterinary Medicine 

Since 1973, our veterinarians have been diligently working to improve the health and quality of lives of pets, making us one of the longest continuing operating veterinary hospitals in this area. We have succeeded in improving and extending the lives of many pets with these core beliefs: 

We believe that pets are family.  We believe that knowledge, communication and compassion are key factors in the treatment of your pet.  We believe that we can help you understand your pet's medical needs.  We believe that the best veterinary care is provided for by the hands of caring professionals. We believe in providing the best quality medicine and care at a reasonable cost.  To find out how our beliefs can help you and your pet, contact us today! 


We are excited to introduce stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma therapy as new therapies at the hospital as alternatives medicine to help relieve pain and improve healing! We have treated several of our patients using this new therapy and are seeing improvements!

Dr. Ahalt is so much more than our Veterinarian! He’s a caring, compassionate soul who pours everything he has into his work, we love him and his whole team for that.

Will never go anywhere else. Fantastic staff who have a great understanding and empathy for the pet parents and of course, for my three four legged children. Can’t imagine going anywhere else! Thank you!

We are so appreciative to Dr. Ahalt and the entire staff. This practice is the best. Such a great mixture of clinical acumen with a personal touch. We have total confidence in the guidance and care we have been given with our furry family member. Most recently, after 15 years of wonderful, we had to say goodbye to our beloved dog. It was heart-wrenching process but we were supported and able to optimize the time we had with him, his quality of life, and were able to give him a dignified and loving goodbye. Thank you Jefferson Veterinary Hospital.

It’s the little things that make up the great care and treatment provided at Jefferson Veterinary Hospital: post cards with a similar dog breed, staff helping to get an accurate weight with a dog who doesn’t stand still, staff who pet and comment nicely about the four legged patient, the friendly and knowledgeable personnel behind the desk, and the veterinarians and veterinary techs who do not rush us.
