Otterkill Animal Hospital was founded 30 years ago in a rural setting in Orange County, NY. We began as a mixed small and large animal practice. Dr. Zgoda took over in 1995 and continued his motto of "if it fits through the door we'll treat it". He built a strong team of dedicated technicians and doctors who care about our clients as well as our patients. We believe in educating our clients to become part of our healthcare team. Dr. Zgoda was members of all the local vet associations, and never stopped learning. After his passing in 2016, "The Otters" have striven to continue his legacy of compassion and communication. We want a true team player to join the family.
