  • Emergency Medicine: In an emergency, call ahead to your PVSEC vet and let us know you’re coming. No appointment is necessary for our emergency vet. Learn more about your emergency visit.

About Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center (PVSEC) in Washington

Our 13,500-square-foot hospital opened in the summer of 2017. We are fully equipped as an 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 Washington 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.
