Wellness and Prevention

We offer a full range of wellness and prevention services, including testing for parasites, vaccinations, and physical examinations. These services are essential for new pets to keep them healthy. Schedule your exam and other benefits once yearly or as necessary throughout your pet's life.

Illness and Injury

When your pets are ill or injured, we provide the best possible treatment to ensure they get the best outcome for their situations. We carefully assess each pet to determine the cause of their condition, and uncover any additional or complicating factors that affect their course of treatment. We can also assist if they require procedures, such as surgery.

Meet Our Doctors

    Dr. Diane Ventrello

    Dr. Diane Ventrello has wanted to be a Vet from as far back as she can remember-there was never anything else, especially once her parents gave her the James Herriot books.  Helping animals that are injured or sick to feel better, and providing education on pet care both bring her joy.  Diane has had kitties since she was little, so she gravitates to feline medicine.  Diane is from Erie, attended Vet School at the University of Pennsylvania, worked in Cincinnati for 4 years, then joined Erie Animal Hospital in 1999.  Diane enjoys playing pickleball and racquetball, exploring the lake shoreline and local creeks for glass, fossils, shells, and rocks, and loves reading, walking and being outdoors in nature.

    Dr. Brian Ulrich

    Dr. Brian Ulrich, an Erie native, is an avid sports fan.  He was a member of the 1991 State Championship Football team at Strong Vincent High School and went on to play undergraduate football at Baldwin Wallace University.  Brian started working as a technician at Erie Animal Hospital in 1999, always knowing he would return after graduation from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004.  You may see him out walking his rescue dog, Hallie, or find him at home relaxing with his 3 rescue kitties, Vendetta, Thomas and London.  Dr. Ulrich plans on working at Erie Animal Hospital until his retirement.

    Dr. Raylene Hinely-Schroeck

    Dr. Raylene Hinely-Schroeck has wanted to be a Veterinarian since the time a mentor was able to save her own dog when she was 12 years old.  Raylene has wanted to give that same feeling to her clients.  Raylene prides herself on being honest and compassionate, doing what is best for her patients and their owners.  Raylene joined Erie Animal Hospital in 2010 and has worked hard to build her skills in ultrasound and internal medicine.  In her spare time, she enjoys being outside, camping and being creative (ceramics and painting).  Raylene also enjoys spending time with her husband Paul and their Golden Retriever Amber.
