Office Hours

Main Content

Hanover Animal Hospital's multitalented staff is kept on its toes by the doctors, animals, and clients alike. If you call or visit, chances are you will first meet our receptionists, Andrea or Katie, who will schedule your pet's exam, surgery, or boarding stay, as well as answer any preliminary questions you may have about our routine procedures.

From performing dental cleanings to restraining animals in exam rooms and treatment, our veterinary assistants guide pets from the reception area and through exams, baths, x-rays, and surgeries. They also keep up with the laundry, clean continuously, and fill prescriptions, as well as answer the phone and help our receptionists when things get busy up front.

Twice a day, our kennel staff comes in to look after the boarding animals. Between 7:30 and 8:30 am, and again between 4:30 and 5:30 pm, the kennel staff walks the dogs, cleans cages and runs, refills food and water bowls, and sweeps and mops the back area.

Inquiries about joining our staff are welcome. Please drop off your resume during office hours.
