When We Help a Pet, We Help a Person
What Is Gentle Care?
"Gentle Care" is the philosophy upon which our hospital was founded: compassion combined with a pursuit of excellence in medical and surgical care for your pet.
Dr. Marguerite Ermeling opened Gentle Care Animal Hospital in 1986, intent on creating a full-service veterinary hospital. Gentle Care is the only animal hospital in the region treating exotic pets, such as reptiles, birds, and small mammals, as well as cats and dogs for over 27 years.
Gentle Care Animal Hospital offers general practice and advanced veterinary medicine including preventive care programs for pets, support and guidance for pet owners, and 24-hour emergency care.
The hospital is equipped with an in-house laboratory and state-of-the-art diagnostic technology.
The professionals of Gentle Care Animal Hospital invite you and your pet to visit our facilities and become part of the Gentle Care family.
