Welcome to Mt. Pleasant Hospital for Animals

About Us


Founded in 1977, Newtown’s preeminent Mt. Pleasant Hospital for Animals melds old world values with the latest and most sophisticated high-tech medical equipment and standards. At Mt. Pleasant, we inspire hope and contribute to veterinary health and well-being by delivering the finest care to every patient by means of our integrated clinical practice and education.

We concentrate on your whole pet, adhering to the highest standards of professionalism, ethics and personal responsibility worthy of your trust. Find comfort within our warm and welcoming environment and in a space that makes your pet feel relaxed and adored from the moment they step through our door.

The values that guide our practice today are those very same principles introduced by our founder, Dr. Brian Silverlieb, more than three decades ago.

Sensitive to even the slightest change, your pet will appreciate having just one familiar locale for all of his or her care needs – from vaccinations to wellness examinations, laser surgery to critical care, grooming to dental care, and daycare to long-term boarding.

At Mt. Pleasant, we also take into consideration your needs, accommodating your schedule with extended Saturday, early morning and late evening hours. Convenient drop-off care has been designed to get you in and out rapidly while ensuring a comfortable transition for your pet. We also make house calls.
