Dr. Stas, or Dr. Andy to avoid confusion with the elder Dr. Stas, is the newest member of our veterinarian team. He has been with the practice since 2014 but has literally grown up at the clinic and is rumored to have spent many days sleeping in the dog kennels as a toddler. Dr. Stas received his veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania, class of 2013. After completion of his degree, Dr. Stas completed a one year internship at the prestigious Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Lexington, Ky. During his education, most of his interests focused around large animal medicine while supplementing his education with advanced small animal medical and surgical training. Dr. Stas is currently serving the local agricultural community as a large animal ambulatory veterinarian when he is not in the office seeing small animal patients. His large animal interests include food animal reproduction and herd health, as well as equine ambulatory services. He is closely involved with the agricultural community and greatly enjoys working with 4-H clubs and youth. While not on the road running farm calls, he can be found in the office seeing small animal patients. His small animal interests include internal medicine and veterinary dentistry. Dr. Stas is currently serving on the Westmoreland 4-H Livestock Committee and the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association Board of Trustees as the equine representative. In his limited free time, he enjoys spending time outdoors with his lovely wife, Julia, son, Barron, and dog, Jade. He also enjoys fishing and all that western PA outdoors has to offer.
