Our mission is to provide your pet with the best veterinarian care possible. This means that we also must support you and your pet during recovery from surgery or injury and manage chronic orthopedic and neurologic conditions.

Medications can help reduce pain and treat a number of conditions and our diagnostic resources can help monitor your pet’s recovery from surgery or an injury, but they must be integrated with an effective rehabilitation program. This is why Society Hill Veterinary Hospital offers comprehensive rehabilitation and fitness services through the Whole Animal Gym, just a block from our office. Their services include laser therapy, acupuncture, ultrasound and underwater treadmill options, among others.
