Time for Apples and Pumpkins

The summer heat is about to turn into cool, crisp autumn days.  We will be going from shorts and tank tops to jeans and sweaters before we know it.  This is the time of year we start thinking of picking apples and carving pumpkins.  Apples are excellent snacks for people as well as for our canine friends. Not even dogs can resist the sweet and crunchy goodness of an apple. Pumpkins make great Halloween decorations, pies, and cakes.  Pumpkin, in small amounts, can also be used to help treat and prevent constipation in dogs and cats.  Some dogs and cats like pumpkin so much, it can be used as an appetite stimulant when our furry friends aren’t eating well.

Even though the summer heat is waning, we still need to worry about biting pests like mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks.  Mosquitoes spread heartworm disease so keep your dogs and cats on heartworm prevention all year round.  Most heartworm preventatives also treat and or control some parasitic intestinal worms like roundworms and hookworms.  We also still see many pets with fleas and ticks during the autumn months making it important to keep your pets on flea and tick prevention at least from March through November if not all year round.

Take some time to enjoy the fall season with your furry friend.  Curl up with a blanket on the porch with the cat, make some jack-o-lanterns with the kids, and share an apple with your favorite canine companion.

Our Mission

   Concord Chapel Animal Hospital in Grove City, Ohio knows that "seeing is believing" and invite you to see for yourself why so many people in Grove City, Columbus and South-Western Franklin County trust us with the care of their pets. You'll experience the difference of our qualified and caring staff and tour our state of the art veterinary hospital which is conveniently located in the renovated historic Concord Chapel Church Building on the southeast corner of Hoover Road and SR 665 in Grove City.

   Dr. Gale Kerr and Dr. Elizabeth Lauron are highly skilled veterinarians and are proud to provide a warm and inviting environment. They and their entire staff understand that pets aren't simply "pets", they're family members.

   Concord Chapel Animal Hospital stands out by providing unmatched care and compassion to both pets and their people so that you can both enjoy a long happy life together, protected from disease and illness.

Our History

   Concord Chapel Animal Hospital is a full service veterinary facility that has provided quality professional health care since the 1950's. We were the first small animal veterinary hospital established in Grove City. The practice was first owned by Dr. Jones in the 1950's when he converted a garage into his veterinary hospital. 

   In the 1970's Dr. James Brick purchased the practice from Dr. Jones. As the practice grew, Dr. Brick needed more space so he built an addition on to the practice in the 1980's and stylized the building to look like a log cabin. Dr. Brick decided to retire in late 2003 and sold the practice to Dr. Elizabeth Lauron. Dr. Lauron hired Dr. Gale Kerr in late 2004 and the two doctors became partners in October 2006.     

   On January 2, 2008 the goal of moving to a larger more modern hospital came to fruition when Doctors Lauron and Kerr opened the doors of Concord Chapel Animal Hospital. They brought the staff and clients from Broadway Veterinary Hospital to their new location in order to continue their mission of providing high quality veterinary care with a family friendly staff.

   Originally built as a one room chapel in 1859 at a total cost of $1,800 with a congregation totaling 267 members, Concord Chapel is one of Grove City's most historical sites. The church was first formed as a Bible Study Class which met in a log house and quickly grew to a full-fledged church congregation within a few years. The original Old Concord Cemetery, just east of the church building, was created during the Civil War.

   The present church structure was constructed in 1906. The highlight of the service was for the people to march into the church through a "common door". Prior to that, there were two doors, one for the women and one for the men. The pews were also originally segregated, the men sitting on one side and the women on the other. Some of the original pews have been modified and used for seating at the current animal hospital. The remaining pews were donated to the Southwest Franklin County Historical Society.

   In the 1950's a bell was put in place in the steeple of the church. This bell had a wooden wheel that weighed 5,000 pounds and was 57 inches wide. The bell was later taken down from the steeple area due to safety reasons. Prior to Concord Chapel Animal Hospital's renovation, the bell was removed and like the pews, were donated to the Historical Society.

   The stained glass windows which adorn the sides of the animal hospital, are the original windows put in place when the church was built. The picture on one of the front windows is that of a man named John Linebaugh. He generously donated 700 acres of land to the Methodist Church of which part of it is the newer Concord Cemetery located just south of the animal hospital on Hoover Road. He supposedly lived in the old farmhouse that is on the property of the current cemetery.
