Healthy Pets are happy pets

You can expect thoughtful, professional and thorough care for your dog or cat. We routinely allow 30 minutes for appointments to ensure time to get to know your pets. And, our small staff ensures personal service.

Our Staff

Andrea Gilbert

Please contact for questions after your recent visit.

Andrea graduated from the University of Illinois in 1997. After graduating from veterinary school, Andrea completed a one year internship in emergency medicine at Tufts University in North Grafton, MA. She worked in suburban Boston after her internship. When the opportunity arose to move out of the urban environment, she jumped on it and has not looked back.

Andrea grew up in Concord, New Hampshire and feels very lucky to be able to live in beautiful Northern Vermont. She really enjoys the seasonality of life up here. She lives in Hardwick with her husband and as many pets as her husband allows.
