April 9th, 2012 served as the grand opening of our third location in Old Forge, PA. The 2800 square foot hospital packs a large array of progressive medical and surgical equipment into a small package. The expansion into the Old Forge area allows the MVH mission of high quality medicine and the support of a family of veterinary professionals to extend into the lower Lackawanna and Luzerne county areas. Dr. Gary Horsfield and select hours with Dr. Robert Noto bring a great balance of expertise and cutting edge medicine to the area.
The fully remodeled interior is clean and crisp, not unlike most modern human hospitals you may have entered. Tile floors and easily cleanable surfaces means a constant level of hygeine can be maintained to keep your pets safe. You’ll see this design throughout the lobby, treatment area, and two beautiful exam rooms to ensure comfortable patient and client care.
Dr. Horsfield is one of only a handful of local veterinarians with diagnostic ultrasound at thier fingertips. The state-of-the-art portable ultrasound unit is capable of performing abdominal, chest and heart imaging where other tests like bloodwork and radiographs (X-rays) cannot reach. In addition to this wonderful tool, the hospital contains the same high quality digital dental and digital whole-bady radiograph system found in all three locations along with comprehensive blood and urine testing equipment to suit nearly all patient needs.
A full complement of dental and surgical equipment allows the doctors at MVH Old Forge to perform a wide variety of soft tissue and oral surgeries. As with all locations, every surgical candidate is given the highest standard of anesthetic care possible, with EKG, blood pressure and oxygenation monitoring by a dedicated veterinary technician at all times. We use some of the most up-to-date anesthetic protocols tailored to each individual patient to ensure each procedure goes as smoothly as possible.
