Our Mission

The West Hazleton Veterinary Hospital was founded over 50 years ago.  It has a long standing tradition of quality care.   Dr. Kenneth Trippett purchased the hospital in 1996.  Since then, he has continued to renovate the hospital, update the older equipment and add new equipment so that he can provide high quality care to his patients.  If your goal is to keep your healthy animals healthy and make your sick pets better, then the WEST HAZLETON VETERINARY HOSPITAL is the place to bring your pets.
