Mount Carmel Pet Hospital provides a full array of medical services and boarding options

Mount Carmel Pet Hospital provides a full array of medical services and boarding options for dogs, cats, small exotics and pocket pets.

Pets are an integral part of our families and when your pet needs veterinary care, Mount Carmel Pet Hospital’s loving staff is available.


They provide a full array of medical services and boarding options for dogs, cats, small exotics and pocket pets. Free wellness exams for new kittens or puppies are included when starting vaccinations.


"Prevention is the key. It’s a lot easier and less expensive to prevent disease by vaccinating than to have a long-term illness that you have to treat," said Dr. Rebecca Bonsor.


With a combined 36 years of experience, Drs. Katherine Calcote and Rebecca Bonsor are passionate about what they do. Veterinary services include preventive medicine, diagnostics, dentistry, general and specialty surgery, radiology, hospitalization and micro-chipping. Grooming is available by appointment.


"We are a good complement because we take different approaches to medicine. My surgical experience and Rebecca’s diagnostic skills work well together," said Calcote.


The facility also houses a 43-run boarding kennel with caring full-time staff members devoted solely to providing your pet personal attention and supervision in a fun, comfortable atmosphere.


Animals are let out individually or as families, at least twice a day, to run and play safely in the fenced-in backyard. For your peace of mind and your pet’s protection, vaccinations and recent flea treatments are required for any overnight guest.


"If you have an animal with special needs, if they’re diabetic or epileptic, we’re here. If they encounter any problem while being boarded, we can deal with it," said Calcote.


Mount Carmel Pet Hospital is located at 204 Main St., and is open 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, and Sunday, by appointment only.

From preventive medicine to emergency care, let the kind-hearted staff at Mount Carmel Pet Hospital take care of your pet with the same love and tenderness that you do.
