Eastern Lancaster County Veterinary Clinic opened for business on
August 4, 2009 when the Smoketown Veterinary Hospital separated into
three divisions. On that date Dr. Jerry Wenger and
Dr. John Kreider
bought and assumed control of the farm-animal portion of the
Smoketown practice. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Andrew Ellis
Dr. Tim Van Grouw became
partner veterinarians. In the fall of 2015, we hired Dr. Jesse
Robinson as an associate. Together, we operate a veterinary practice devoted
solely to the health and treatment of farm animals. This includes
animals such as cattle, horses, sheep, goats, llamas, and
alpacas. We provide limited services for farm dogs and cats
such as routine vaccinations, deworming, health
certificates, and USDA inspections.
Our doctors answer the phones from 7:00-8:00 a.m. daily, Monday through Saturday. Please call during those times to schedule farm visits and to discuss any veterinary medical questions you may have. You can schedule appointments in advance by speaking with our secretarial staff from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Emergency calls during those hours will be scheduled by our staff. We provide emergency service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. After hours, calls are scheduled through a local answering service.
Our secretary is Missy who has been with us since 1995 (when we were known as Smoketown Veterinary Hospital). Denise and Susan help Missy with office duties such as bookkeeping and purchasing.
