About Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center (PVSEC) – South Hills

Our 13,500 square-foot hospital opened in the summer of 2017. We are fully equipped as a 24 hour emergency animal hospital and as a center for advanced specialty care.

Our sister hospital, PVSEC in North Hills, is the largest and most comprehensive emergency and specialty hospital in western Pennsylvania, but our South Hills hospital is more convenient to many communities south of Pittsburgh.

We use sophisticated diagnostic equipment such as a 64-slice CT scanner and video endoscopy and have dedicated suites for endoscopy and ultrasound.

We are part of the BluePearl network of veterinary specialty and emergency hospitals.
