Jennifer Jones, DVM, Practice Owner and Veterinarian
Dr. Jones is originally from a small town in central Pennsylvania. In 1994, her passion for Veterinary Medicine took her to Philadelphia, and to the University of Pennsylvania, where she graduated in 1999 with a B.A. in Biology, and minors in Chemistry and Psychology. She loved the University of Pennsylvania so much she stayed another 4 years, and graduated with her V.M.D. in 2003. She practiced in both the Mt. Airy and Andorra neighborhoods for 8 years before pursuing her life-long dream to open her own Veterinary clinic, with emphasis on compassionate, courteous, and high quality medical care to pets and the people who love them. She is a member of the AVMA, PVMA, and licensed in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey to practice Veterinary Medicine. She has performed volunteer veterinary services with the Humane society on Native American reservations, and in remote parts of the Peten region of Guatemala.

She shares a farm home with her four aristocratic cats – Kitty Marie, Sunshine, Honeybee, and Tom O’Malley, a feisty Chihuahua named Peachy, and a lovable rescued pitbull named Rubble. She is mom to four adorable, aspiring veterinarians, and has one very patient, loving husband.

TacoCat, Resident Office Cat
Taco is the unofficial mascot of Animedic. When she isn’t sleeping, Taco can be found greeting clients at the front desk, checking out cats in carriers, and eating “snacks” out of the trash. Her favorite spots to snooze are squished in her cat tree, draped on top of her cat house, and curled up in fresh laundry. Taco loves to talk and spends much of her day yelling at her team members. Taco’s favorite activities include watching the dogs in the waiting room from her perch on top of her house, drinking from the sink faucet, and acting as a foster mom to all of our adoptable kittens.
