Doctors Daniel and David Pike opened the doors of Dover Area Animal Hospital on December 1, 1999. Their mother, Ursula Pike, served as their technician, receptionist, and bookkeeper. As word spread about these two dynamic individuals and their sincere compassion for Large and Small animals alike, their small client base grew dramatically. Over the next 5-7 years as the practice became well established, Doctors Dan and Dave recognized their need for additional staff and space. Additional veterinarians and technicians were added, along with additional space for a center treatment area and a new surgery wing. A boarding and grooming area were also added to better serve our client’s needs. Our staff today includes eight veterinarians and an array of extremely dedicated and knowledgeable technicians and receptionists.
