Our Story

Vets with a purpose. 



Many of our fans know us as Atglen Veterinary Hospital, but with new ownership and a new vision, we changed our name to Pine Creek Animal Hospital. It is our commitment to provide quality veterinary care throughout the life of your pet.

Our services and facilities are designed to assist in routine preventive care for young, healthy pets; early detection and treatment of disease as your pet ages; and complete medical and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime.

Our services are designed to help pet owners become great pet caretakers, and to help pets live healthy and happy lives.
— Ashley Tuma, Owner, D.V.M.

We understand the special role your pet plays in your family and are dedicated to becoming your partner in your pet’s health care. We treat your pet as we would our own.

Our goal is to practice the highest quality medicine and surgery with compassion and an emphasis on client education.

Our entire healthcare team is committed to providing personal attention to the unique concerns of each individual pet owner.


New name, same great service

Pine Creek Animal Hospital (formerly Atglen Veterinary Hospital) is a full-service, small animal veterinary hospital located in Christiana PA, providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care.  We have been helping the local pet population since 1975, when the practice was started in Atglen by Dr. Raymond L. Ewing out of his home. After 10 years in a home-office we moved to our present location. In 2005 we completely remodeled the existing space and added on to our original building, doubling the area available to better serve you and your pets. We’re pleased and proud that we’ve grown to a practice of over 7,800 clients and more than 14,500 patients.

We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with local referral practices when special diagnostic procedures or treatments are required. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and outdoor walking areas.

At Pine Creek, we care for your pets as if they were our own. We strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn’t feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.
