An Announcement from Dr. John:


And so, the time has come to announce my official retirement from my role as a full time Veterinary Medical Director effective 5/1/24. 

I have spent many hours thinking of how to say “Thank You” for the business, and the trust you have placed in me other the years but far more, for the friendships that have grown over time.  Please accept my sincere and utmost gratitude.   

As I am retiring from my role as Medical Director, I will be taking a few months off to unwind.  I plan on returning on a limited basis down the road.

Please feel confident that I am leaving you in good hands and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

John A Credaroli Jr., DVM


From the Staff:

Please stop by the hospital between 1:30pm – 4:30pm on Saturday afternoon April 13th   for refreshments and photos as we celebrate and say farewell to Dr Credaroli as he takes a step down from his role as Veterinary Medical Director.
