    Dr. Teena Waltman DVM, MS
    Veterinarian / Owner

    Dr. Teena L. Waltman, DVM, MS grew up near Chicora, PA and graduated from Butler Area Senior High School in 1984.  She received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Slippery Rock University in 1990.  Prior to attending Veterinary School, She received a Graduate Student Assistantship to attend Penn State University.  She received a Masters degree in Pathobiology there in 1993 and her research focused on the effects of bacterial toxins on birds.  Dr. Waltman then attended Purdue University, School of Veterinary Medicine and developed an interest in both Companion and Exotic Animal Medicine.

    Upon graduation from Veterinary School, in 1997, Dr. Waltman returned to Pennsylvania to practice Routine, Emergency and Exotic Animal Care at Metropolitan Veterinary Centers South and West which are located in Dormont, PA and Robinsion Twp., PA.  After 11 years at Met Vet, She then worked 1.5 yrs as a Emergency Room Physician at Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center (PVSEC) which is located on Camp Horne Rd. in Pittsburgh.  

    However Dr. Waltman missed Small Animal practice.  So from 2010 to 2017 she became a Relief Veterinarian for Lighthouse Veterinary Personnel Services.  In that organization, she worked and travelled extensively providing Routine, Emergency and Surgical Care at multiple Veterinary Practices in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio.  

    Through her Relief Veterinary work she met Dr. Paul Eismann.  And, in 2010 she began occasionally seeing patients and performing Surgeries at Deer Creek Animal Hospital.  She eventually began working full time at Deer Creek following Dr. Eismann’s unexpected passing in May 2017.  She then purchased the Practice in the fall of 2017.  

    After almost 24years of practicing Veterinary Medicine, she enjoys helping people and their pets through the diagnosis of challenging cases and by providing routine, emergency, surgical, exotic and companion animal care.  Dr. Waltman also enjoys family time, volunteering at her church, traveling, gardening, playing golf, swimming, and spending time outdoors.  She especially enjoys walks and playing ball with her Golden Retriever (Jax).  She also shares her home with her 4 cats  and her African Grey Parrot (Lenore).

  • The vets & staff treated me and my cat well, fully explaining what they were doing and answering questionsm. I also liked that they understood my financial situation and helped me save some money instead of trying to force unneeded products on me. Highly recommended.

    - Bonnee
  • I recently got a puppy and was asking around about a good vet. I heard good things about everyone here from a few friends. I have now been there twice with my puppy and won't go anywhere else. The office is clean and doesn't smell, everyone is friendly, and the prices are reasonable. The vet seems to really care about all of the animals that go in. I would recommend this vet to anyone.

  • We just moved here and were looking for a new vet for our dog, Cooper. We found one! We had the best vet experience today! Normally, he is super anxious and stressed, but he was so happy there and loved the staff. Coop even ate treats, which he has NEVER done at a vet before! They gave valuable feedback and information about his health and went above expectations. Highly recommended and so happy we have such a great place to take him to!

    - Andrea
  • Lovely little place. I always take my dog Buster for his checkups here... When my dad's dog Lacey was declining in health, they gave us every piece of advice and did everything they could to help us through it. Always friendly. Always caring.

    - Kiggs​
  • I absolutely love this place. They are in it for the animals. Some places only want your money once you get in and rush to get you out, so they can go on to the next one. Not this place. They are very thorough, informative and friendly. I definitely recommend this place to anyone who has animals.

    - Amanda Wolslayer
  • I have been bringing my dogs to this practice for the past 22 years, and there is a good reason. Dr. Eismann was THE BEST, most kind-hearted, gentle-natured veterinarian, and the most wonderful man. And, this is THE BEST office staff I have ever experienced. They are some of the most caring, patient, compassionate people I’ve ever met, and the prices have been the most reasonable I have found over other area vets. When we moved, I made the decision to continue to drive almost 1/2 hour to keep
