Paws Of Honor

Philadelphia Animal Hospital was established in 1991 as a community practice to serve the needs of their Philadelphia constituents. Dr. Lawrence Rebbecchi is extremely experienced in the care and special needs of working dogs. He has made it his life’s mission to deliver cutting-edge, compassionate care to all. They believe in straight forward honest dialogue with their clients in order to provide education while meticulously tending to your pride and joy’s ailments. Their hospital offers all of the modern capabilities of even the most advanced vet clinic while maintaining a small town atmosphere.

In October 2013, the practice relocated to a five acre pet campus alongside Philadelphia Pet Hotel & Villas. Their new, state-of-the-art 7,000 square foot location boasts several improvements that enhance the client experience as well as their ability to care for your furry family members. They are now able to accommodate more patients through the utilization of additional exam rooms as well as perform more complex surgeries with the addition of an oversized surgery wing.

They look forward to welcoming you and your retired K9 into our practice! Please feel free to call anytime during business hours to speak with one of their friendly pet professionals.

The Philadelphia Animal Hospital and Philadelphia Pet Hotel and Villas proudly opened an aquatics facility on its campus!

This rehabilitation, therapy, and recreational pool is ideal for furry friends on a hot summer day to cool down, and is heated on a chilly winter’s eve to get in much needed exercise, despite the deep snow!

The pool is unique in it’s design: filled with pet-friendly saline water, the pool ranges in depth from 3 feet 6 inches, to 6 feet 6 inches, so that pups of any shape and size can enjoy swimming and diving with you alongside them!
