    Dr. Matowski is the BEST. Love him. Was super friendly, very concerned about my dog, and made sure I understood everything.

    Pros

    Fantastic vet and aide staff.

    Cons

    Expensive, expensive, expensive. Especially for medication - I paid double here for my dog\'s medication than I did at another vet in the city.

    The staff at Society Hill Animal Hospital are the greatest. I have a special needs cats, and the gentleness they show when they handle him puts both of us at ease. I feel that if it wasn't for the care he receives, Noel would not still be with me today.

    Pros

    Caring, knowledgeable staff

    Cons

    None

  • 3. Good full-service vet

    The vets at Society Hill have taken good care of all my kitties. When my cat Ginger had chronic diarrhea, her doctor discussed the treatment options and let me pick a more conservative plan, first looking for the less invasive and expensive solutions like diet changes and basic antibiotics before resorting to the more expensive tests. I felt like we were working as a team to get my kitty healthy again. \n\nMy only complaint is, as of last summer, they didn't offer a discount for foster cats. While the shelter I foster for (PAWS/ PACCA) provides free vet care, it's pretty far away for me and has limited office hours.

    Pros

    full service vet, freindly doctors, conservative care

    Cons

    no discount for fosters
