About Us

A little history…

We are a medical service business. Our primary task is to solve our client’s pet medical problems by maintaining the highest standards in doctors and veterinary medicine.  We are more than just an animal hospital. The modernized facility was built with the idea of comprehensive medical and surgical care for animal patients in mind.  Boonsboro Veterinary Hospital was started in 1990 by Dr. and Mrs. Richard Garcia. The facility was completed and opened for service June 1, 1990.

Boonsboro Veterinary Hospital is a multi-faceted care facility offering quality care with both animal and owner in mind. We strive to operate our business on the sound business practice that ensures our growth and success.  We offer a clean and friendly place to bring your pets, convenient hours, location, and competitive prices.  Our courteous and knowledgeable staff are always ready to help you in any way they can.
