Monroe Veterinary Associates

Since its inception in 1969, Monroe Veterinary Associates (MVA) has been delivering high-quality pet care with friendly professionalism and the utmost respect for the human-animal bond. Founded by Dr. Jack Bloch, MVA originated at Pittsford Animal Hospital and has since expanded its reach to include one 24-hour emergency and specialty hospital, 14 general practices, a low-cost animal clinic serving income-qualified patients, and a pet rehabilitation facility spread across the greater Rochester, New York area. Kindly welcoming dogs, cats, and exotic animals, we collectively offer advanced full-service veterinary care for all ages, ranging from puppies and kittens to adults and seniors.
