Companion Pet Hospital of Carmel (CPHC) and Pawling Animal Clinic (PAC) are well-established small animal hospitals in Upstate New York, approximately 60 miles north of New York City. Founded in the 1980’s, both practices are now owned and operated by Drs. Hope Jankunas and Jeremy Frederick. The beautiful Hudson Valley is home to countless outdoor activities, including hiking, boating, golfing, equestrian sports, skiing and snowboarding. There are many unique Farm-to-Table restaurants, craft breweries and wineries to explore. If the culture and excitement of the city is what you crave, Manhattan is a quick and easy train ride away.
CPHC and PAC are full service hospitals seeing a mix of preventative care and sick-patient appointments. We are committed to practicing a high standard of medicine and our hospitals are equipped with modern technology such as digital radiography, IDEXX in-house laboratory, therapeutic laser, ultrasound, high-speed dental equipment and digital dental radiography. The practice owners take a sincere interest in professional development and provide excellent mentorship and support while Associates maintain primary case responsibility. Both hospitals are staffed with knowledgeable and responsive Office Managers, skilled LVTs, and Fear-Free Certified employees. CPHC achieved AAHA Accreditation in 2019.
