We also work closely with local practices when special diagnostic procedures are required. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area. Indoor/outdoor boarding kennels with outdoor walking areas and a doggie swimming pool are located next door at Harmony Pet Resort.

At Harmony Crossing Animal Hospital we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.

Dr. Richter has lived at Lake Oconee with his wife Kim since 2005. They have two adult children, Taylor & Connor. He has always felt "blessed" to have become a veterinarian, because of his love for animals, but it is apparent that he also loves their owners! He gushes that "people who own pets are some of the nicest people in the world." His favorite part about being a veterinarian is the long-term relationships that develop over years of taking care of people and their pets. Dr. Richter enjoys bike riding, horseback riding and wake-boarding on Lake Oconee. He also enjoys playing fetch with his chocolate labs, Brodie and Bentley.
