Dr. Lester Beck came to Williamsport in 1967, where he worked independently in mixed animal practice until he founded the Loyalsock Animal Hospital in 1968. Mr. Gary Schick, who is currently a certified veterinary technician and hospital manager at Loyalsock Animal Hospital, began working with Dr. Beck at this time.
In 1970, Loyalsock Animal Hospital began serving small animals only. Dr. Beck added a new wing to the building in 1974, and the hospital has experienced steady growth ever since.
In 2001, Dr. Knoebel and Dr. Graham purchased the practice from Dr. Beck and continued to build upon his foundation. The Feline Center opened in 2005, adding some much-needed space for feline friends. In 2014, the front of the hospital was completely renovated and expanded, allowing for a much larger reception area, an expanded pharmacy and an extra exam room.
