A Foundation of Passion

Innovative Veterinary Medicine (IVM) began very simply: a doctor and a tackle box filled with the tools of the trade. In the summer of 2006, under the banner “Your living room is our waiting room,” IVM set out to rediscover what made the veterinary profession so great. Leaving all the distractions of a modern hospital behind allowed IVM to truly focus on one patient at a time; heightening the bonding experience with clients and patients in the comfort of their own home. IVM built its foundation upon the strength of these early experiences.


We Offer a Wide Range of Veterinary Services

To keep your companions feeling their best, we provide thorough check-ups and preventive care that can help alleviate serious health problems.

Diagnostic Services

Fast and accurate diagnostics are essential to proper treatment, especially in the event of an emergency.

House Calls

Anxiety, physical ailment, or owner convenience – whichever the reason, we would be happy to come to your home and “make your living room our exam room.”

Certified PennHIP Evaluation

This evaluation is used to determine the onset of degenerative joint disease, hip dysplasia, and osteoarthritis.

Digital Low-Dose Full-Body and Dental Radiology

Dental imaging allows our doctors to treat dental disease – a common source of pain and bad breath! – more thoroughly and effectively by determining the condition of your pet’s mouth beneath and above the gum line.

Clean Teeth For Life Dental Program

IVM’s Clean Teeth For Life program is an inexpensive, easy way for clients to keep their pets’ teeth clean and healthy all year long! Only the fraction of the cost of a complete dental procedure!
