Located on the site of an old health spa of the same name, Fountain House was established in 1978 with the aim of providing quality, caring veterinary service in a very personalized atmosphere. Throughout the years since, with all the changes and improvements needed for progress, our objective remains the same: to maintain a family of clients and patients that we care for, in all the senses of that term. We want to provide the quality medicine and other support needed by you and your pet, and we especially want to share our love and great respect for animals. In the informal atmosphere of the reception area, clients and patients alike soon become friends. There's often a call from someone checking the progress of a patient met through this interaction. We strive to maintain this friendly ambiance for your pet, to treat your animals as we would our own, and to give individualized handling for every situation in a small, compassionate environment. ** Services ** We provide comprehensive veterinary assistance beyond the exam room: surgery, including soft tissue and some orthopedic procedures; dental procedures; diagnostic tools, such as radiography, hematology, feces and urine analyses, electrocardiograms, etc; hospitalized medical care (including intensive nursing and isolation units); in-depth geriatric care; and twenty-four hour emergency treatment handled through a human answering service. We are exceptionally fortunate in this area to have a number of high quality referral doctors for more specialized problems, including -- but not limited to -- the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University. Outside of medical care we offer boarding facilities for our patients -- a special comfort for our geriatric or chronic care animals who need medications and extra attention; grooming (mostly baths and medically prescribed treatment ) on a limited basis; advice on all subjects ranging from nutritional needs, behavioral problems, puppy and kitten socialization to arranging for the well-being of the older pet; and the exchange of suggestions and stories from the pet owners in our family.
