Anthracite Animal Clinic was established in 1980 by Yvonne T. Walacavage, VMD. The practice continued to grow until Dr. Walacavage's passing in 2008. At the time of Yvonne's death Kate Harnish was studing to become a veterinarian and inherited the business from her long time friend and mentor. She had worked for Dr. Walacavage as a Vet Technician for a several years, and was hoping to work with her again after finishing her schooling.
Dr. Kate Harnish re-opened the clinic on September 13, 2011, which would have been Dr. Walacavage's 60th birthday. The business continues to provide veterinary care to animals in Schuylkill County and the surrounding areas. Dr. Harnish focuses mainly on the care of dogs and cats. The clinic offers boarding, grooming, and training services as well. She strives to offer excellent care at an affordable price for pets in the area. Since re-opening, she has regained many of the clinic's former clients, as well as many new ones.
We are glad to be re-open and serving this area. Please take advantage of our many offers on this website. We have a number of resources for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Browse around and look at our articles and pet videos. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention.
