aboutVeterinary Care in Latham and Albany NY

At Capitaland Animal Hospital, we consider ourselves your pet’s advocate. It’s our mission to educate you so you will know how to help your pet live a long, happy and healthy life. Capitaland Animal Hospital is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, which means that we meet and exceed the highest standards of veterinary care. We are a skilled and compassionate team of health care professionals who want to be partners in your pet’s health care.

Dr. Stacey Pedersen and her team believe that prevention contributes to your pet’s long term health and minimizes the lifetime cost of care. We strongly recommend wellness exams, vaccinations, regular lab work, deworming and fecal checks, as well as medications to prevent heartworm, fleas and ticks to keep your pet in optimum health.  In addition, our staff is committed to your pet’s emotional as well as physical wellness.  We are Cat Friendly Certified and use Fear Free techniques to recognize and reduce stress and fear so that your pet is comfortable during their visit.

Despite the very best preventive care, your beloved pet may develop an illness or be injured. Our internal medicine and surgical expertise, as well as our advanced diagnostic capabilities and veterinary laboratory, ensure your pet receives a quick and accurate diagnosis. We work with local specialists when referrals are needed and take the time to explain our diagnosis to you and provide you with various options for your pet’s treatment.
