State College Veterinary Hospital

1700 W. College Avenue
State College, PA 16801-2719


WE ARE OPEN. However, we are opening under limited hours and lighter staff. Monday through Saturday.  We are closed on Sunday. Please call the office for the procedure to follow when you arrive. We are having pet owners call from the car and are trying to do as much as possible via phone. We are offering curbside service where we will bring your pet into the office for you. We are currently only seeing sick and emergent appointments. We are also attempting to do as much telemedicine as possible- we may be able to do some appointment via FaceTime or with photos and videos by e-mail and phone.  We will discuss whether this would be appropriate when you call the office.  Lab samples will only be accepted  Monday thru Friday until 5 pm and on Saturday until 2 pm. 

IMPORTANT:  if you are showing signs of illness please have someone else bring your pet for you!  Medically necessary appointments only!

If your pet has an annual wellness visit scheduled in March or April and there are no medical problems, please call to reschedule until at least May.  If your pet has a booster due in a series, please keep your scheduled appointment. We have loosened the prescription refill policy for the current pandemic situation and will refill a 2 month supply. 


State College Veterinary Hospital in State College, PA is a full service veterinary hospital.  It is our commitment to provide quality veterinary care throughout the life 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, dental and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime.  The State College Veterinary Hospital is celebrating its 62nd year of service to local pets and pet owners.  The hospital was established and operated by Dr. Charlie Myers until Dr. Kathleen Kocher purchased the veterinary hospital in 1988.  This is Dr. Kocher's 32nd anniversary as the owner/operator of the veterinary hospital!  After an extensive gut and remodel, we had a grand re-opening in September 2014!

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, dentistry 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. 

If you have just adopted a pet from a shelter, we will do a full first exam at no charge! And while we LOVE new puppies and kittens, senior pets hold a special place in our hearts too. We are very proud of our recent complete remodel, which allows us to bring our radiology, ultrasound room, treatment triage, surgical and dental suites, and beautiful boarding kennels to serve you to the best of our abilities. We stock prescription diets, a full pharmacy and flea and tick products.
