About Us

Our family-run veterinary practice has served the capital district for over 46 years. Dr. Ed Becker conceived, designed, and built The Animal Hospital in 1974. Dr. Ed's daughter, Lexi, grew up at The Animal Hospital and was honored to take over the practice in 2014. We are proud of our tradition and pledge to remain true to our home town values while implementing cutting edge veterinary medicine and technology.​​​​​​​

Pet Connection Adoption Day

Sponsored by Healthy Pet Center

Steve and Lisa Caporizzo suggested over ten years ago that we join together to create this annual event at The Animal Hospital as a way to promote pet adoption through rescue. Without their tireless work, dedication, and devotion to finding forever homes for these pets, this event could not exist.
