Russell Veterinary Hospital, P.C. was established on April 1, 1990 by Dr. Patrick Farrell. It is located in scenic northwestern PA near the NY border.

We are a mixed animal practice with an AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) accreditation. We care for a variety of species including cats, dogs, exotics, horses, ruminants, and camelids. Our small animal hospital is fully equipped. It includes a complete laboratory, digital radiology department, and ultrasonography. Our surgical suite provides state of the art monitoring of anesthesia and critical patient values such as oxygen saturation, pulse rate, blood pressure, and EKG.

The large animal facility is located on the same premises and has a surgical suite, digital radiology and ultrasonography section. We also make farm calls to the surrounding area.

For some non-emergency medical conditions, you may wish to have your pet seen by a doctor as soon as possible during our normal business hours. If you feel that your pet requires this, we will always provide an opportunity for you to drop your pet off at the hospital without an appointment time. Your pet will then be examined in a timely manner and you will be contacted about diagnostic and treatment options by our staff. We would prefer to see your pet before a problem escalates and we hope this option will assist you rather than waiting for an appointment.
