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.
The needs and care of our patients come first, with Mt. Pleasant delivering the best outcomes and highest quality service by means of dedicated efforts from every team member. Gain the value of our collective contributions, with each service blending the skills of multiple individual staff members in unsurpassed collaboration - from our vets and techs to our knowledgeable receptionists. We infuse and energize our hospital, enhancing the lives of those we serve with the creative ideas and unique talents of each employee.
Actively involved in our community, we support the local pound and shelter, Newtown Park and Canine Advocates, a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to help pets in need. We sustain and reinvest in our mission and extended communities by wisely managing our knowledge along with our human, natural and material resources.
You guys realized I knew what I was talking about, I was lisined to. Most vets treat me like I don't know anything about animals and like I don't know my own dog. You guys believed me and did everything I asked.
"the staff went "that extra yard" to get vital information from the lab so that my girl could be bred at just the right time!
Love Dr Vali and his staff! they are so caring and knowledgeable! I know my dog is getting the best possible care every time we are there!
Mt. Pleasant Hospital for Animals is a wonderful place and has an amazing, caring staff. They always take the best care of my fur babies!"
I have always received the best quality care for my pets since moving to this area and having my pets cared for at Mt. Pleasant Hospital. I feel very fortunate to have found such wonderful doctors and hospital staff members to care for my pets.
"I love the staff and Dr Bakewell!!! They are always courteous and very welcoming. The first vet's office that I am 100% happy with
COMPASSION that all staff shows towards my animals and myself. You don't always see this in other veterinarian hospitals and I very much appreciate it when it is there. This is all full service hospital i.e. grooming, birds, and reptiles.
I never like to leave my cat overnight for any number of days, but when I have to due to his condition, I know that he will be well taken care of. The staff are very friendly and are always helpful when it comes to answering my questions
Our dogs mean a lot to us, so when business travel came knocking, Mt. Pleasant was but the logical choice. Dr. Vali and his fabulous staff took immaculate care of Vicky who was quite a handful. Vicky came out happy and boisterous as ever out of the experience. A big Thank you to all your staff for taking such nice care of our puppy.
Thank you for taking care of my little Winston. Your staff was very kind and considerate. When I picked Winston up, I could smell the scent of perfume from the girls in the office that were comfoting him after his dental cleaning!
I just wanted to thank you for helping us find a perfect companion kitty for Michael - our nurse kitty we call him. Thank you Monica for coordinating with Mt. Pleasant Hospital. They were wonderful and generous and they know their animals. They introduced us to the sweetest 5 year old boy, Onyx. He is a very big and friendly - but so gentle. Michael and Onyx are becoming great couch potato friends. Onyx is very chubby so Michael spent several hours grooming him and Onyx looks much cleaner now (it was therapeutic for Michael too).
This has been such a wonderful and rewarding experience for the entire family. Thank you for going out of your way to coordinate it. Michael is feeling better and it coincides with us getting Onyx......so I have to believe he's doing wonders for my son. Onyx is happy too, he is purring like crazy and getting lots of love and attention. He is a great cat, I see why the hospital thought he would be well suited for Michael's situation. I've attached a picture of the boys together.
