About Belvoir Pet Hospital

Belvoir Pet Hospital was built as a veterinary clinic in 1938 by Dr. David Elsasser. He and his family lived on the second floor of the hospital and raised their three daughters there.

Dr. Joseph N. Farkas graduated from The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine in 1964 and began practicing with Dr. Elsasser that same year. Dr. Marty Farkas graduated one year after Joe, and the husband and wife team purchased Belvoir Pet Hospital from Dr. Elsasser soon after.

In 1998 after 33 years of practice together, Marty and Joe’s son, Butch (1995 OSU grad), joined Belvoir Pet Hospital after practicing in Cincinnati for a short time. In 2003, Butch purchased the practice from his parents, and in early 2004, Marty passed away unexpectedly.

Joe and Butch continued to practice together until Joe’s retirement at the end of 2010.

Belvoir Pet Hospital has since expanded it’s facility and staff to meet the growing clientele, with the addition of Dr. Laskin in 2009, Dr. Tree in 2012 and Dr. Banta in 2013.

Scheduling an Appointment

Regular appointments are usually scheduled for 20 - 40 minutes to ensure your animal has a complete physical exam. We also allow plenty of time to address your questions and concerns.

We make it a practice not to double-book appointments; however, if a very ill animal arrives we do make adjustments to the schedule to ensure that any emergencies get addressed immediately.

We are located in South Euclid, Ohio, at 4217 Mayfield Road. We are very close to the intersection of Belvoir and Mayfield Roads.

You can reach us at (216) 381-1100.

Patient Arrival

For your protection, and that of others, all dogs must be on a leash and properly controlled while in the waiting area or exam rooms.

All cats must be presented in an appropriate cat carrier or on a leash.

Payment Policy

We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express Cards, cash and personal checks. We also accept CareCredit.
