Bree's Animal Hospital
My 4 cats have been patients of Dr Bree's for over 4 years....It was always routine visits until last December when I took my 10 year old cat Sandy in for what I thought was a small issue...Dr Marc found a mass and she was taken in on Monday for surgery...Dr Marc called me personally after the surgery and they encouraged me to visit with my "baby" during her 2 day hospital stay. I was kept informed and Dr Marc went over every aspect of her illness, and surgery and subsequent treatments.....Although we had hoped for the best, her biopsy came back as an aggressive form of lymphoma....Dr Marc took the time to research the best treatment for her and together we came up with a plan that worked for Sandy. For a month I was in the office 3 days a week for treatments and after treatments the staff would call me and inquire as to how Sandy was doing....I didn't just leave the office and was forgotten - they cared and made it known we were not just a number to them. I am now in the office twice a week and I cannot say enough good things about this kind, caring facility. In the four years I have been going there, I have never seen a cleaner animal hospital. When I dropped my cat off for surgery at 7am the girl at the desk was disinfecting and when I was visiting at night after office hours the staff was cleaning and mopping and disinfecting! Spotless would be an accurate description! I would never trust anyone but Dr Marc or Dr Roblejo to take care of my babies....

Queen Village Animal Hospital
Jessie our 12 year old Yellow Lab Mix became sick and lethargic. We carried her to our neighborhood vet who said there was nothing he could do and we would need to put her down. We were not going to accept that decision without a second opinion. We then took her to Queen Village Animal Hospital which our son said was excellent. We were told she would need surgery to remove her uterus but that she also had a severe infection throughout her body and her chances of survival were very small. Jessie had the surgery done and then the waiting to see if she could fight off the infection began. Jessie never gave up and the wonderful doctors, workers and staff of Queen Village never gave up on her either. They monitored and gave her loving care constantly. After several days of waiting and praying, we got the call that she was showing signs of improvement. Jessie made a full recovery.... Jessie is now 15 1/2 and even though climbing stairs and getting on the couch are a bit difficult for her now, she still acts like a puppy when it's time to go for a walk. We cannot put into words what these extra years with Jessie have meant to us.

Queen Village Animal Hospital
Thank you Queen Village Animal Hospital for taking such good care of my kitty. I heard such wonderful things about QVAH from friends and family so when I adopted my rescue kitty and needed a vet I knew this was going to be my choice. It was important for me to find a hospital where there is compassion for both the animals and the owners and where I felt I could completely trust the doctor taking care of my cat. I've had a great experience here. The vets are knowledgeable, understanding, respectful and helpful. I'm greeted with friendly voice when I call and a smile when I walk in. After Ella was spayed all my questions were patiently and thoroughly answered. I had a post-surgery concern a few days later and my call was returned by the end of the day and again, my questions were answered fully and thoughtfully. The facility is clean with state of the art equipment and the feel is warm and comforting. And, from what I can see, the prices are in line or lower than other vets in the area. I wouldn't want anyone else taking care of Ella.

Radbill Animal Hospital
Dr. Radbill has been our family vet since I was a kid. Now married with children of my own, we too have a number of pets as I did growing up in the Bustleton section of Philadelphia. Dr. Radbill has helped me care for many new baby pets, and guided me through integrating them into our family with our other and sometimes older pets. He has even provided dental care on a few occasions. Dr. Radbill and his staff have operated on 2 of my pets and helped care for them when they've been under the weather. They call to check on them a few days after the visit and they even sent a sympathy card when a beloved pet passed. These are the little things that count. Dr. Radbill and his staff are the best. My pets and I have never once had a bad experience at his office and it shows that they are really there for the animals and their sometimes distressed parents. I've never even thought of going anywhere else and I recommend him to everyone searching for a great vet. I hope he never retires!

Queen Village Animal Hospital
My friends all told me to come to Queen Village for my pets. I recently moved here from California and was very happy with my vet there but had to come to Philly for my job. Along came my 2 cats and dog. I have been a client of QV for 6 months and thought they were awesome. The prices were reasonable and staff was welcoming. I saw Dr. Wellens and he was thorough and seem to genuinely care about my pets. He spent alot of time answering my silly questions and I found that to be refreshing. It came time to pay the bill and it was surprisingly reasonable. I did price shop other hospitals in the area and they were more expensive than this hospital. It is a clean and classy place and my pets loved it there. Parking was a little hard to find at 6pm but i still found a spot. QV has something called a smart card available to clients. FREE PARKING! Who knew! I highly recommend this hospital and hope never to have to switch again.

Dutton Road Veterinary Clinic
Its wonderful to know that there are still people out there who actually care and want to help. Its not about the money, its about giving back. At the time we came to Dutton Rd. Veterinary Clinic, we had 5 animals, 3 dogs and 2 cats, so you can imagine what our vet bills were like. Not that our previous vet didnt care about animals, they did, but we just couldnt afford to keep taking them there. They charged us for every little thing and it got to the point where we were forced to switch. We are so lucky to have found Dutton Rd. The fact that they are also a Greyhound Rescue, just shows you the dedication and compassion they have for animals, they are about helping, not about the money. We couldn't believe how affordable it was to take ALL of our animals there, besides the amazing care that was given. The staff is great and any questions or concerns are always welcome and answered.

Fairmount Animal Hospital
Dr. Eynard and his staff are exceptional! They take incredibly good care of my dogs. They are experienced, trustworthy, and dependable. They have gone above and beyond for me and my dogs. It baffles me that anyone would write anything negative about this place because they are truly wonderful. For example, (without even asking )Dr. Eynard took time to discuss what I could do at home to help my dogs adjust to a new baby. He gave me great ideas and he also gave me as a new mom information to help me feel more safe and comfortable in bringing my infant home with animals. Another time I had an emergency and I couldn't leave the house. He called a staff member into the office so that he could come service my dog at my home. They are animal lovers who genuinely care about there cliental. I highly reccomend Dr. Eynard.

Queen Village Animal Hospital
When I called for an urgent appointment, the only opening was a few days away. After asking a lot of very specific questions, the receptionist/tech recommended I call back each morning to check on cancellations. Not ten minutes after this call, SHE called ME back to let me know of an appointment that just opened up within the hour. My kitten was taken in promptly, examined, x-rayed and then referred --all within 1 hour -- to VSEC for an ultrasound and possible surgery for an abdominal obstruction. As it turns out, our kitten's condition did not require surgery at VSEC, so we were able to bring him back to QVAH to have the procedure (and neutering) for less than half the projected cost we had expected. He is now resting comfortably and the staff has been exceptional in fielding my calls and questions.

Bree's Animal Hospital
Sadly, I recently lost my cat Timmy to liver cancer. The staff at Bree's were so compassionate and caring. We took him in because he was listless, not eating and vomiting even when he tried to drink water. Dr. Robejo did everything he could to keep Timmy comfortable. On the day that we had to euthanize Timmy, Dr. Robejo was in constant contact with me until my husband came home after work and we could go over to say goodbye. Dr. Robejo was honest and understanding; he provided high quality care ( IV, x-ray, etc.) without giving us false hope. I will always be grateful to Dr. Robejo, Eileen, Leanne and everyone else whose names I did not learn. I am fortunate to have such a great vet right around the corner.

Queen Village Animal Hospital
To be perfectly honest, I don't feel safe taking my boys any place else but to QVAH. We moved to New Jersey over a year ago and still take Jake and Otis back for all their care. The front desk help is always more than friendly and happy to see not just my dogs but all the other clients that walk through the doors while I'm there. Even when I feel that something is wrong with one of the boys we always call and tell them the symptoms and the message is always passed on to our Vet followed by a return phone call with some care advice. In all I find the staff and patient care at QVAH to go above and beyond and I will continue to bring my Labs and any future pets my family may get to QVAH for their care.
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
