About Bucks Vets

Bucks County VETS was founded in 2001 to serve the local community's pet emergency needs. In 2006, we added the Bucks Animal Rehabilitation Center. We have now expanded to a three doctor emergency practice including four certified veterinary technicians and a friendly, knowledgeable support staff.

Dr. Jackson graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. She practiced small animal emergency medicine for 10 years prior to opening BC Vets. She has been the director and a practicing emergency veterinarian at BC Vets since 2002.


In 2005 she completed a series of classes for Animal Physical Therapy/Rehabilitation and in 2006 opened the Bucks Animal Rehabilitation Center (BARC) at the BC Vets location. BARC is now the area's premier animal rehabilitation facility.
