Dr. George L. Hartenstein IV is the son of the late Hill Street Veterinary Hospital founder Dr. George L. Hartenstein, III. Dr. Hartenstein is primarily a large animal clinician. He has been traveling around York County attending to the needs of our local farmers since his graduation from the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In addition to his medical and surgical obligations to our large animal friends, Dr. Hartenstein sees companion animals at the office on Hill Street 3 days-a-week.
Outside his life-long dedication to animals, Dr. Hartenstein enjoys Formula 1 racing and traveling. Once-a-year, he travels out west to participate in the Native American Veterinary Services (NAVS) program sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania. Through NAVS, volunteers provide veterinary services to the farm and companion animals of Native Americans who would otherwise have access to little or no veterinary care.
