Originally established in 1975 by Dr. Glenn McDowell VMD, Bayville Veterinary Hospital has served pet owners in Bayville and the surrounding areas for over 40 years. Our main focus is to work with you to provide quality veterinary care for your pet at the best value possible. This has helped foster a strong relationship between our hospital and the community which results in our pets staying as healthy and as happy as possible
Our veterinarians and their team offer their wealth of experience in veterinary care for both healthy animals, in order to keep them that way, and for sick animals who need treatment with care and compassion. We treat our clients' animals the way we would want our animals treated.
