“Bailey absolutely loves going! Every time we take a walk past their building, Bailey waits at the door to go in. He doesn't even notice when they give him a shot because he's so preoccupied with the treats the technician is giving him.”

“After struggling to get appointments at my old vet I was thrilled to find that Center City Vet is not only flexible, but friendly, affordable and knowledgable. I have felt nothing but appreciated and welcomed at this practice. My cats even seemed to have the best appointments of their lives (in terms of calmness) due to the gentle but thorough. I think the greenies treats helped too! Highly recommend this practice!”

“My dog Molly has been a patient since we adopted her at 6 months old. She loves Dr. Cohen as much as we do. He is a brilliant veterinarian with a love for animals you expect from a Vet but rarely find.” — Joshua

“Dr. Cohen and the rest of the staff at Center City vet are fantastic. They are very quick when an appointment is needed and thorough. My cat Dexter and I have become spoiled because they take such good care of him! Thanks for everything you guys do!” — Emilee

“I have been bringing my dog to Center City Vet Hospital since they first opened. All of the staff is extremely professional and caring. I am glad to see that their business continues to grow without any effect on the quality of their service. I highly recommend taking your pet here.”

“The staff at CCVH are incredible. They go out of their way to ensure our pup is getting the best care possible. Our rescue dog has extreme separation anxiety, and he has always been available to help answer our questions, no matter what the concern. The facility is beyond bright and clean, and is by far the best vet hospital in the city.”

“The staff is so nice and the hospital is very efficient and clean.  It’s never too crowded and we’re in and out for a physical/vaccine update in about 30-40 min.  I lived around the corner when I first adopted my dog, so I went to CCVH out of convenience, but after moving across town and loving the service, I continued going.”

“The nurses are kind and caring. My dogs even like to go visit regularly. What dog do you know likes to go to the vet just to visit and say hi ??!   They have always fit my animals in, even when they are booked. Their prices are extremely reasonable, unlike other neighborhood veterinarians. ”
