Dr. Alyson Deak, DVM, with a feline friendThough some of you already know Dr. Alyson Deak, we are thrilled to announce that she is joining Stark Animal Hospital full-time!

Dr. Deak is a longtime resident of Ohio. She received her undergraduate degree in Animal Science from The Ohio State University in 2012. She continued her studies at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, where she graduated in 2017.

It is with mixed feelings that we announce Dr. Gary Klein's farewell.

Dr. Klein has been a member of the Stark Animal Hospital team since 1987, and we’ll miss him dearly. We hope he enjoys the next chapter in his life.

He would like to leave his clients with these words:

Cell phoneWe are very excited to reveal that our hospital will be implementing Demand Force into our reminders system!

DemandForce is a secure way to utilize the email addresses and cell phone numbers we have on file. The system will send vaccine and heartworm reminders to our clients via email and also text appointment verification 2 days prior to scheduled appointments!

Your information stays private within our hospital AND it is an updated and convenient way to communicate. We are very excited to offer this service to you! Simply provide the front staff with an updated cell phone number and email address to take advantage of the new program.

parasite prevention icon 250Dear Valued Client:

We have recently conducted a review of parasite control options for our patients. After a close comparison of approved veterinary products, our veterinarians have decided to recommend Interceptor® Plus (milbemycin oxime/praziquantel) for the prevention of heartworm disease and treatment and control of adult hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum), roundworms, whipworm and tapeworms in dogs.

We’d like to explain our decision.
