In fall of 2007, Dr. Schwartz relocated his practice and built Cove Mountain Animal Hospital. Dr. Schwartz is an active member of the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association. His professional interests include preventative medicine, internal medicine, dentistry, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery.
