About Our Gettysburg Veterinary Hospital

Serving Communities for 60+ Years

When your pet has fallen ill or needs a life-saving surgery, you want to entrust their care to a veterinary team that has demonstrated experience as well as compassion. For more than six decades, our Gettysburg veterinary hospital team has devoted ourselves to giving our animal patients the most loving care possible. Because our doctors and staff are animal lovers and owners ourselves, we treat our patients as if they were our own. Through honest communication and efficient service, we hope to provide simple and proven solutions to every issue we come across. At Confederate Woods Veterinary Hospital, your loved one is safe with us.

Our History

Originally founded in 1960 by Dr. Dick Newsham, Confederate Woods Veterinary Hospital was acquired by Dr. Dale Dickey in 1980. Learn more about our hospital’s physical transformation in 2014, which gave our team 4,300 square feet to use for treating our beloved pet patients and their parents, and take a virtual tour. Our new facility allows us to safely and freely practice preventative medicine, dental services, medical and surgical care, and more.


Our family-oriented hospital loves working with our Gettysburg and Adams County patients, and we strive to support our community through our work with nonprofit organizations, animal shelters, local schools, and other community organizations.

Policies & Financing

To ensure that our hospital runs as efficiently and smoothly as possible for our patients, our team has several policies in place, including when scheduling appointments, patient check-ins, additional care options, and payment terms.

We require full payment for our services, and cash and checks are always accepted. Learn more about ScratchPay as a payment option.
