Welcome Dr. Deb Buchanan!

Dr. Buchanan grew up in Potter County surrounded by dogs, cats, horses, and cows. She received her veterinary training at the University of Pennsylvania and was in the same graduating class as Dr. Weeks. After 2 years of practicing in Erie (the snow called to me), she moved to Perry county and has been practicing in the Mechanicsburg/Harrisburg area since 1997. She especially enjoys soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, but also find joy in helping pet parents solve problems that make it more difficult to fully enjoy our furry friends- the itchy dog, the chewing puppy, the cat that yowls at 2am; you know the ones.
She lives in Shermansdale with a blue tick coonhound puppy, Mosey. They enjoy hiking and working in the garden or yard. She also enjoys playing the drums and kayaking.


Pet Laser Therapy

Shippensburg Animal Hospital utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and the latest medical techniques to ensure the health and comfort of your pet.

Surgical Lasers. Laser cutting causes less trauma than traditional surgery. By using lasers instead of scalpels, pets benefit from reduced pain, reduced bleeding, reduced swelling, reduced infection, and quicker recovery times.

Therapy Lasers. Cold laser therapy involves exposing the tissue to two different wavelengths of laser light, one that reacts with the nerves to reduce pain perception and the other that increases blood flow to promote healing.

Contact us today to discuss surgical or therapy lasers at 717-532-5413.

Welcome Dr. Jamie Miller!

We are excited to welcome Dr. Jamie Miller, DVM to our family!

Dr. Miller grew up in the Hershey area, and received her bachelor’s degree in Animal Bioscience from The Pennsylvania State University. She attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed a clinical year at Oklahoma State University in 2013. After realizing how much she missed the mountains and trees of PA, she moved back and joined Shippensburg An­­­imal Hospital in November of 2013, as a small animal practitioner.

She has a rescued island dog, named Tai, who is her constant shadow. In her spare time, she’s an outdoor enthusiast. You can find her running with her dog, exploring new hiking trails, or skiing down the slopes. She loves cold weather and snow!

Veterinary Orthopedics

Over 20 years ago, Dr. Stoner recognized a need for more advanced care for dogs and cats suffering from acute and chronic orthopedic conditions. Through experience, continuing education, and advanced equipment, Shippensburg Animal Hospital offers sophisticated surgical modalities that allow us to treat a much larger variety of orthopedic conditions. Advanced orthopedic procedures including fracture repair with bone plating and pinning techniques, cranial cruciate ligament repair, and patellar luxation corrective surgery.

It is rewarding to see animals with severe orthopedic conditions recover and return to better health and function. We welcome referrals from surrounding areas.
