Doctors & Staff At WVMC

View Specials

Dr. Clifford Wright, Jr. was raised in Bethlehem and attended Muhlenberg College. He continued his education at the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Veterinary Medicine, and began practicing in Bethlehem Township in 1949. As a result, the Wright Veterinary Medical Center began in a renovated barn on his parents’ farm. Part of the original stone wall is still visible in the hospital today. The hospital started out with only 2 employees, Dr. Clifford Wright, and his wife Louise.

The hospital has grown with 4 owners and a staff of approximately 75 employees. Dr. Clifford Wright, Jr. practiced veterinary medicine for 58 years. His belief and passion was to create a hospital that would evolve with the times so that practicing veterinarians and staff would be able to provide the best care possible for your pet.

“The staff is very friendly and professional, makes a big difference in wanting to continue working with your company.”
