Why Bernville Veterinary Clinic

Why Bernville Vet?

Bernville Veterinary Clinic has been caring for pets in Bernville and Reading — and greater Berks County — for more than 20 years.

Today our knowledgeable veterinarians and dedicated technical staff provide the best care possible for your pets. This starts with state-of-the art diagnostics and Wellness Programs tailored to your individual pets. It also includes listening carefully to you, our partner in your pet’s healthcare.

Our hospital was founded in 1990 by Dr. Steve Stephan in the fall of 1989 when Dr. Stephan acquired the Northkill practice from Dr. A. Godfried on Shartlesville Road. At the time it was a part time practice run out of a several room small building. Pretty soon the Bernville Veterinary Clinic outgrew the small building and it was expanded on that site. In 1994 we decided that this area needed more veterinary and pet related services than even the expanded building could handle so the present hospital and spa were constructed.

In 1997 a late night lightning strike hit the completely full spa and it burned just about totally to the ground. Thanks to the wonderful Bernville Fire Company, the clinic and spa staff, and community members, all pets survived. We quickly rebuilt and even expanded the spa at that time. The pet service complex has grown over the years and continues to grow to meet the needs of our community.

Our team of expert veterinarians and medical professionals will give your pet the best medical care to keep them happy and healthy. MEET OUR TEAM >>
