I am new to this Vet and so far it seems pretty good. Only time will tell but everyone it nice and it's clean! And my little guy hasn't wanted to bite anyone. Yeah!

I'm extremely glad I chose NSVH for my pet care needs. Rory is a 60lb Golden/Lab Retriever who loves to go to the vet. I've never had to wait, the staff is extraordinary, and the facilities are always impeccably clean. Highly recommend.

I just moved to Bryn Mawr and was referred to this vet practice for my three dogs. I have been so impressed with the customer service of all staff. I am very impressed with the level of detail they explain my dog’s care and their excellent follow up.

I took my dog Lucy to Newtown Square Veterinary Hospital today and was extremely pleased! The office was beautiful and I especially loved seeing the fenced in potty area next to the building! The staff was very friendly and paid a lot of attention to my dog as soon as we walked in the door. I found Dr. DiGiacomo to be professional, but also very caring. During Lucy's examination she was very through and was sitting with Lucy on the floor to keep her comfortable. When I left I felt that Lucy was seen by a very experienced Veternarian and was given the medication that will help her through her illness. I will be back with my other dogs and feel very lucky to have found a vet so close to my home.

Kind, compassionate, wonderful doctor and staff. Unfortunately, my visit with my bunny was a sad one, but they made a difficult time much easier. I’ve been to many vets over the years with different kinds of animals, but they are the best. They were extremely accommodating when I called for an emergency appointment, and were very kind and patient with us when we had to say our final goodbyes. I highly recommend them to anyone. 🐰

This vet is wonderful! We have been taking our dog Frank there since he was a puppy and they are kind, relaxed and very considerate of your pet as well as your concerns. Dr. D takes her time with your appointment and treats each pet with love and kindness. Couldn't ask for a better experience. And all the staff is wonderful and really love your pet like their own. Highly recommend this vet for all your pet's needs.

As you can see Louie loves his visits at NSVH! Dr. D. and the entire staff are so caring and give lots of love to Louie and all the pets. They don't use any force when examining or treating Louie and they are so thorough and take their time with you to explain everything. They go the extra mile to make a follow up call too. If you're looking for the BEST vet care this is your place.

We love NSVH and Dr. D! She has taken expert care of our 3 kitties over the years, and is always compassionate, thoughtful and professional. The practice is certified Feline-Friendly and Fear-Free, and we especially love that there is a separate waiting room for cats vs. dogs. The staff is always friendly, and the hospital is impeccably clean with no odors. We send all our family & friends to Dr. D to take care of their furry friends!

The staff are all wonderful here. They do a great job with our baby (dog) and I can't stress enough how the "fear free" approach to care is appreciated. It makes all the difference for anxious pets! Bonus, my girl loves the peanut butter treats :-D

Internet Pet Meds Come with Hidden Costs

Most of us are cost-conscious. Most of us like to price shop, to ensure we are getting the best deal on a purchase. Most of us use the internet to compare prices for everything from televisions to shoes to diapers. When it comes to pet medications, however, the cheapest drugs found online may be counterfeit, […]

One was to create a personalized, progressive hospital with a family-friendly feel and state of the art medicine. Second was to provide our patients with a calm, welcoming and stress-free environment. Third was to design a hospital that specifically […]

At the Dog Park

There is a longstanding joke among veterinarians: “Dog parks keep us in business.” Why is that the case? Dog parks are rife with well-intentioned owners and misbehaved dogs, resulting in dog fights and dog bites. Dog parks may seem like a good idea: a way to exercise Fido, a way to socialize him, a way to […]
