Welcome to Hanover Animal Hospital
If you live in Mechanicsville or the surrounding area in VA, then you have picked the perfect site to find a veterinarian.
The doctors and staff of Hanover Animal Hospital work to establish long-lasting relationships with clients and their pets by providing high-quality medical and professional services.
Founded in 1992 and first located in Hanover Commons Shopping Center at the corner of Shady Grove Road and 301, HAH expanded in May of 2001 to a new facility located behind Henry Volunteer Fire Station on Chamberlayne Avenue. The new building boasts an ample reception area, four exam rooms, isolation, a surgery suite equipped with a laser, a large treatment area, radiology room and digital x-ray system, and boarding kennels for cats and dogs. Currently four veterinarians are on our staff--Dr. John Billeter, Dr. Daryl Tyson, Dr. Tracy Clark and Dr. Christie Tankersley--with a supporting team of five vet assistants, two receptionists, our office manager, and a kennel staff.
