Family Owned Business

NSVH is proud to be a family owned business with deep roots in the Main Line community. Dr. DiGiacomo is a lifelong Main Line resident, and her family has lived locally for decades. It has been Dr. D’s longstanding dream to be a small business owner; NSVH is a realization of that dream!

Many large corporations have invaded the veterinary industry, buying local animal hospitals across the country. Unlike corporately-owned hospitals, NSVH offers a warm and friendly atmosphere, highly trained and personable staff, enduring client and patient relationships and the ability to customize individualized treatment plans for the differing medical needs of each patient.

NSVH is a founding member of the Independent Veterinary Practitioners Association, which provides support to privately owned veterinary hospitals around the country.

Thank you for supporting our family business!
