Welcome To Richland Veterinary Associates

Richland Veterinary Associates was established at it’s current location in 1968 by Dr. Thomas M. Dick. Dr. Dick cultivated the practice and eventually in 1980 hired Dr. F. Lynn Sanderson as his associate. Since 1991, the two veterinarians partnered in furthering the high quality practice of veterinary medicine until Dr. Dick retired from veterinary medical practice in 2006. Now, under the leadership of practice owner F. Lynn Sanderson, VMD, Richland Veterinary Associates continues to provide the Johnstown area with high quality veterinary medicine and surgery.
