New Owner & New Logo — Same Compassionate Care

From Dr. Tritch

transition-handshakeDear Susquehanna Trail Animal Hospital Family,

I have some very exciting news! For some time, I have been actively searching for the perfect doctor to join STAH.  My standards were high.  I had to find someone who shared my deep love and appreciation for our pets, as well someone who has the medical skills to propel STAH forward in the ever-evolving field of veterinary medicine and surgery.

I have the great pleasure of announcing that I have found such a veterinarian.  He is Dr. Tristan Wilhelm, and he will be taking over the reins at STAH. You can read more about him in his introduction below.

As so many of you know, STAH has been my life’s work and commitment.  Our mission has been to provide the highest level of care and compassion for clients and pets, and this remains my foremost concern.  With Dr. Wilhelm, I am confident that this mission will continue.

Although I will no longer be the owner of STAH, I will have some available office hours into 2017 to guarantee a smooth transition.  I know you will like Dr. Wilhelm just as much as I do, and I hope you will join me in welcoming him warmly.


Dr. V. Ray Tritch

From Dr. Wilhelm

wilhelmHello to my new STAH Family!

I am very excited to become the new owner of STAH, and I have greatly enjoyed meeting many of you and your pets over the last year.

I thought I would tell you a little bit more about myself.  I grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and received my veterinary degree from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech in 2009.  I met my wife, Lori, in veterinary school, and we moved to Lewisburg shortly after graduation.  We are now blessed with two handsome boys, Tanner and Camden.   Since graduation, I have worked at several local veterinary clinics where I had the opportunity to hone both my medical and surgical skills.

As you know, STAH has been providing exceptional veterinary care and service for over 25 years.  Dr. Tritch’s combination of compassion and experience is truly one-of-a-kind.  I know I have some big shoes to fill.  I will continue to offer the great care and family atmosphere that Dr. Tritch has provided, and I also plan to expand services in the near future.

I want you all to know that I will be devoted to ensuring that STAH will continue to serve you and your beloved pets with the same concern and quality of care you have come to expect.  I know you will join me in wishing Dr. Tritch a happy and well-deserved retirement from practice ownership.  I look forward to meeting you and your pets at your next visit.


Dr. Tristan Wilhelm
