Dr. Paul received his undergraduate degree from New York Lehman College majoring in Biology and Physical Anthropology. He obtained a Masters of Biomedical Science degree from Wagner College and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree from Mississippi State University. Finally, he completed a rotating Internship in small animal medicine and Surgery at the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Veterinary Medicine.
After extensive and diverse academic training, he worked at several Small Animal Hospitals across the State of Pennsylvania, before opening the doors of The Peaceable Kingdom Animal Hospital in 1997, serving Ephrata, Lititz, Manheim, and surrounding Lancaster counties.
Since then his practice has grown and continues to provide comprehensive, exceptional care to all patients in a clear and concise manner. He tailors and individualizes each patient’s care and provides clients with alternative treatment plans with tiered options of care for patients that considers quality of life, affordability and desires of the owners.

NED also was known to us as “Neddie James” a suspected descendant of Bandit Jesse James because of his habit of stealing our lunch food! Ned will always be remembered as the “Mascot Emeritus” at the Peaceable Kingdom since he has now retired to the sunny state of Florida to pursue his favorite hobby of the small game hunting of moles, voles, frogs, lizards, and chipmunks. He was a 1 lb. kitten found by a client wandering the streets of Akron and was raised at the Peaceable Kingdom. He was very friendly with people, dogs and cats in the clinic. Dr. Paul tried on several occasions to bring him home but his female cat Sofia would not have any of it but his male cat could have cared less! Ned eventually found a loving home but because of their work Neddie James has been relocated to Florida. He will be missed!

Wellness & Preventative Care
Having regular checkups and wellness exams can be a critical component to help extend your pet’s longevity!
Regular oral care for your pet offers the same prevention as a visit to your own dentist. Teeth-cleaning removes hardened plaque (bacteria) and tartar that can become detrimental to your pet’s overall health.
Another great visit for my cat Maggie Mae. Dr. Paul and his staff are wonderful and caring. Been bringing my cats here for years and was never disappointed with the care I received for my cats. Thank you Dr. Paul and staff
