About Ironstone Veterinary Hospital


Ironstone Veterinary Hospital is proud to serve the Boyertown, Pennsylvania area for everything pet-related. Our veterinary clinic and animal hospital is run by Dr.  Sherilyn Allen, VMD, who is a licensed, experienced Boyertown veterinarian.

Our team is committed to educating our clients in how to keep your pets healthy year round, with good nutrition and exercise. Ironstone stays on top of the latest advances in veterinarian technology and above all, remembers that all animals and pets need to be treated with loving care in every check-up, procedure, or surgery.


At Ironstone, Dr. Allen started the breeding of champion Neapolitan Mastiffs, and in so doing, gained so much knowledge about them that she wrote several books about the breed.

After her family of three children grew up, Dr. Allen was able to pursue her love of horses, horse training, and horse breeding. Some wonderful sport horses have been born, trained, and sold through Ironstone. We specialize in people oriented dressage trained warmbloods, Lusitanos, and reining bred and trained Quarter horses.There is always a lot going on at Ironstone.


Our super friendly staff welcomes you at all times. If you need a great dog, a great horse, or great care for your own family member pets, Ironstone is here to serve you.
