Since 1990, Indian Walk Veterinary Center has been serving the pets of Bucks County, Pennsylvania and surrounding areas. Some of our patients come from as far away as northern New Jersey and Maryland.


We care for a wide array of animals, including dogs, cats, ferrets, snakes, lizards and other reptiles, rabbits and rodents and small birds. We believe that every pet deserves our best efforts. We consider the challenge of treating exotic pets an opportunity to expand our knowledge, to help our patients, and to educate our clients in their care.


OUR MISSION

To celebrate the delight of the human-animal bond by
   educating and encouraging people to be considerate
   caretakers of their animal companions.


To provide a high standard of technical expertise in an
   atmosphere of thoughtful concern for our patients and
   their families.

October 22 - Worried about Ebola and your pet? Read this informative handout compiled by the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Centers for Disease Control. We will keep up with the latest news and post it here as well as on our social media pages as soon as there is an update.

October 7 -  On Wednesday morning, October 22, 2014, Dr. Kusiak is going to be “kidnapped” by the volunteers of The Crossings Animal Sanctuary, as part of their 4th Annual “Hostages for Homeless Pets”.  We need your help to raise her “ransom”.

Ransom monies, in addition to securing her release, will be donated to “Boris & Natasha’s Fund” of The Crossings Animal Sanctuary to assist in supplementing the cost of veterinary care for our area’s homeless dogs & cats, and pets in families with significant financial need.  Half of the proceeds will be designated for area rescue organizations to help cover life-saving veterinary costs for the homeless dogs & cats in their care. The rest will be used by CAS in response to requests to use the fund.  So please give generously.   Many Bucks County dogs and cats need your help. (And we would like Dr. K. to come back to work!)  To help pay the ransom, please see anyone at our front desk or call us at 215-598-9000 to make a credit card donation over the phone.


The Crossings Animal Sanctuary, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.  The official registration and financial information of The Crossings Animal Sanctuary may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll-free, within Pennsylvania, 1-800-732-0999.

September 28 - Michelle, husband Jeff and big brother Grey welcomed a new arrival to their family. Everett Oliver Aylen was born today at 2:16 AM, weighing 7 lb 14 oz. He's just adorable, and we're excited for the whole family.

September 28 - Today is World Rabies Day, founded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Alliance for Rabies Control, a UK charity, to let the world know that this disease can be readily prevented through education, pet vaccination and increased human awareness as to proper wound management and administration of rabies vaccination after an exposure has occurred.

It is estimated that every year 30,000-40,000 US residents are potentially exposed to rabies requiring human rabies post-exposure prophylaxis (treatment). In PA the total reported cases of Rabies in animals from Jan 1 to Aug 31 2014 was 266, 13 of them in Bucks County.The actual count of rabid wildlife is unknown.

5 Things you should know about Rabies:

  1. Rabies kills! Once you start to show symptoms, there is no cure, no treatment. You will die! The only protection is prevention.
  2. Rabies is local! Cases have been found in cats from Morrisville, Newtown Boro, Wrightstown and Southampton.
  3. All mammals (humans and furred animals) can get and transmit Rabies.
  4. Rabies is contracted through a bite wound or contact with the saliva of an infected animal.
  5. Help prevent Rabies by making sure all of your animals are routinely vaccinated against this disease as recommended by your veterinarian. Even indoor-only cats can be exposed by rabid bats that get into homes.
