We're glad you're here!

Chesdin Animal Hospital was established in 1984 by Dr. Richard A. Grenoble and his wife, Sharon. The practice had its beginnings in a wing of a farmhouse that was converted into a small but efficient animal hospital. As the practice grew, it became obvious that the time was right to build a facility to accommodate our growing staff and allow more space to do what we love best, help sick and injured animals, as well as to keep them healthy and happy. We moved to our present location in the spring of 1992.

Chesdin Animal Hospital is “full service”, and offers medical and surgical expertise, disease prevention, dental procedures, and many other services including grooming and boarding.

We are very proud of our staff, who are all dedicated animal lovers. They demonstrate their compassion and skills for our patients every day and strive to make our pet owners comfortable and informed about their pet’s treatment and progress.

Chesdin Animal Hospital is not only a family run business that has been around since 1984, the next generation has joined the practice. Recently we have had the pleasure to bring on Dr. Richard D. Grenoble as a full time veterinarian and his wife, Amy as Assistant Office Manager.

Great place I wouldn’t take Miss Tilly to anyone else ! Love Dr. Grenoble ! He takes his time with and talks to you . I love the care that he shows. His father was the same way . I miss seeing him at the office . Had many conversations with Dr. Grenoble Sr. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for excellent care of their pet .♥️♥️♥️


Brought my two pups (one 116lbs the other 12lbs) they treated both with such kindness. I was really nervous and was patient with my questions and answered all with respect. Such a wonderful experience!!”

I’ve been bringing my puppy here since the day after adopting him, and have had nothing short of a wonderful experience with every visit. Not only is this practice considerate and attentive, but they always remember my pet and who I am as soon as I walk in without missing a beat! My most recent experience was for his neuter appointment. I knew my pet was in good hands the moment I dropped him off so I was able to leave with no concerns as all of my questions were answered intently and with care beforehand! Thank you so much Chesdin for all of your outstanding staff and care!! I’ve already recommended this animal clinic to many friends and family because their attention to detail and consideration for clients & patients is remarkable!
