About Us

Newtown Square Veterinary Hospital is a progressive, privately owned, boutique-style, full service veterinary hospital created by Dr. Heather DiGiacomo, VMD. Dr. DiGiacomo has over a decade of experience in small animal medicine and surgery.


NSVH is a full-service animal hospital, providing comprehensive wellness, medical and surgical care for small animals. We are proud to feature the most modern diagnostic and surgical equipment, allowing us to provide the highest standard of care for our patients.

Your Pets

We welcome pets of all shapes and sizes: dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, ferrets and more! NSVH has been certified as a "Cat Friendly Practice" and a "Fear Free" practice. We embrace fear-free handling techniques to ensure your pet enjoys visiting with us.



I couldn’t be happier with the care with which Dr. DiGiacomo has been providing my animals since 2010. She always takes as much time as is necessary to make sure they are comfortable during the exam and to answer my questions about their health. She is thorough, thoughtful, patient and, most of all, incredibly knowledgeable. Dr. DiGiacomo is a superb veterinarian, and I recommend her without hesitation.
