About Us

About Us Society Hill Veterinary Hospital is a full-service, modern animal hospital dedicated to providing pet owners of Philadelphia with access to the best that modern veterinary care has to offer.

Our hospital has been located on the corner of Second and Lombard Streets since 1969 and owned by Claudia L. Casavecchia, DVM, since 2002. In 2010, the facility was completely renovated in order to better serve our patients and clients as well as to support our doctors with cutting edge technologies and resources. These include enhanced inpatient and outpatient treatment areas, state-of-the-art surgery and dental care suites, and a well-equipped intensive care unit for critically ill patients.

The basis of our model of care is the compassionate application of preventative care. As medical professionals, we understand that if we are to live up to our deepest desire to provide your pet with the best care possible, we must preserve his or her health and wellbeing. We also understand that our knowledge is of little use if we do not share it with you. If we are to effectively promote responsible pet ownership and excellent home care, then we have to be very good at communication and client education.

We invite you to continue browsing through our website to learn more about how Society Hill Veterinary Hospital can help you preserve the wellbeing of your beloved animal companions. Then please give us a call at (215) 627-5955 to set up an appointment or talk to one of our client care specialists.

American Animal Hospital Association Accredited

Society Hill Veterinary Hospital is proud to be an American Animal Hospital Association accredited veterinary hospital and to have earned the right to display the AAHA accredited logo throughout our website and hospital. This distinction is achieved by fewer than 15 percent of animal hospitals throughout the U.S. and represents the highest seal of approval by our industry’s only independent accreditation organization.

As a member of a very elite group of animal hospitals, Society Hill Veterinary Hospital undergoes a comprehensive and rigorous evaluation by AAHA inspectors every three years. This evaluation looks at a wide range of standards we must meet or exceed in areas such as anesthesia, surgery, customer service, cleanliness, continuing education of our staff, diagnostics, laboratory services, medical records, safety, patient care, and much more. Additionally, these three-year evaluations require us to remain up-to-date on the latest advancements within our industry.

Though accreditation is voluntary, we believe in the principles of professionalism and excellence established by the AAHA. We proudly display the AAHA's logo as a sign to our community and clients that we are committed to providing you and your pet with the best veterinary care possible.
