Ovid-Elsie Animal Clinic​​

About Us

Ovid-Elsie Animal Clinic has been in operation for over 60 years.  The clinic was oriignally a large animal practice. In time, the clinic transitioned to a mixed animal practice.  In 2017 the clinic was purchased by Dr. Monica Riegler-Pecoraro.
At Ovid-Elsie Animal Clinic we encourage you to spay or neuter your pets. Spaying and neutering can decrease the rates of certain cancers and also your pets don't contribute to the pet overpopulation problem.
