Learn About Our Buffalo, NY Veterinary Practice

The Elmwood Small Animal Hospital was founded in 1947 by Dr. Harold Scheffler at 2235 Elmwood Avenue near the corner of Kenmore Avenue.   In 1971, Dr. Ganon Harish joined Dr. Scheffler and the team bringing his outstanding surgical and medical skill to the Elmwood Small Animal Hospital. As years have gone by, maintaining the standards of the American Animal Hospital Association through accreditation, Dr. Harish noticed a need to expand. In October 2008, the Elmwood Small Animal Hospital moved to 1606 Kenmore Avenue in the brand new state of the art facility. The new move enabled Dr. Harish to provide the animals with so much more including digital radiographs.  
The Elmwood Small Animal Hospital has various services to offer the patients throughout their life.  If you have any questions please contact the staff at 716-876-6023 or drop an email for a quick response.
