Who We Are

Get to Know Philadelphia Animal Specialty & Emergency

Setting the PASE in specialty & emergency care throughout Philadelphia and beyond.

Philadelphia Animal Specialty & Emergency (PASE) is Philadelphia’s newest privately-owned veterinary hospital and WE ARE OPEN! We are thrilled to be serving you and your family. PASE also has critical care specialists onsite and available seven days a week.

Currently sharing space with Washington Avenue Animal Hospital (located at 1920 Washington Avenue), in 2022 PASE we will be opening and practicing from our standalone building at 2100 Washington Avenue.

Our goal at PASE is simple: we strive to advance veterinary medicine by providing unparalleled emergency and specialty healthcare for patients and their families with an emphasis on teamwork, service, diversity, respect, and expertise. As a family-owned practice, we recognize the simple fact that our pets are simply a four-legged extension of our families and treat our patients as such.
