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.
Occasionally, a cat will find his or her way to the clinic in need of a new loving home. In these instances, Dr. Cappiello has generously offered to take them in and give them temporary shelter, tending to all their veterinary needs, and with the help of our rescue coordinator and Petfinder.com, finds them wonderful new pet parents to give them the loving homes they deserve. It is this type of compassion and commitment that sets Dr. Cappiello and The Peaceable Kingdom Animal Hospital apart.
Dr. Paul J Cappiello, MS DVM
We are happy to announce a new addition to the Peaceable Kingdom Animal Hospital Family! Dr. Thomas Gondek has recently joined our practice and with him brings along his love of animals, people and veterinary medicine. A graduate from Iowa State University School of medicine, he has worked in the New England states and throughout our local region for the past twenty years. He has a special interest in complex medical cases and surgery. In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his family which includes several furchildren as well. We are excited about all the great things Dr. Gondek is bringing to the hospital and to our patients.

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. Having a routine examinations by a veterinarian are very important for good dental 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
