We transferred our animal care to Dr Joe due to his his sincere interest in our pet’s health. He also helped us make the best choices for our senior dog and two cats. His pricing is fair and he assists if you want to purchase medication elsewhere. This is so refreshing compared to the “pet/vet factory” we came from! His office staff is also top notch!

Penn Vet Care is without a doubt the best provider of veterinary care! We trust Dr. Joe implicitly, and his staff is so helpful and friendly. We've taken our dogs here for years and are always eager to recommend to friends and family. Thank you!

This was our first visit to Penn Vet Care. I had read good reviews about this clinic, and they didn't disappoint. I had left our previous vet office because of some issues I had with them. When I called to get an appt for my dog, Peaches, who needed dental work, they got me right in the same day, and scheduled my dog's dental surgery quickly and easily. The technician, Alanna was so pleasant and kind, and took really good care of Peaches. The veterinarian was professional and kind. A great experience all around. Thank you!!

They are so kind and care about treating the animal. They don’t charge excessive fees, prices are reasonable, and they don’t tell you they need tests or things to run up the bill. I love this place, I love all the staff! My dog Simba is always scared and nervous and they are so patient with him. I would recommend them to everyone!

My cat Smoke was very ill and I needed to find a vet that could see him quickly, and they were able to work him in. They went above and beyond trying to find the best solution for him. When it became obvious that it was time to say goodbye, he and his staff were very kind and respectful. It was a very difficult time for me but I know I went to the right place and I will be bringing my next pet here as well.
