  • These are the VERY BEST people. The Doctors are so knowledgeable and kind, the Techs are gentle and really know their business, the Kennel Staff superb (and strong!!) and those in the Reception area are welcoming and gracious and efficient. I can’t imagine going anywhere else for my animal care. Many thanks to all of you.

  • Since 1982 we have taken our dogs to Bryn Mawr Animal Hospital for care. During those years our dogs, had they been able to communicate it themselves, would have raved about the incredibly humane treatment they received and continue to receive. Linda and I thank the staff for their dedication in treating each animal that walks through the front doors of BMVH.

  • I brought my cat to Bryn Mawr Veterinary Hospital, what a great experience! Everyone working there was extremely nice, I felt comfortable as soon as I entered the building. The exam was very thorough, the Dr. answered all the questions I had, and I was relieved to see how well my cat behaved (not always the case). If you live in the area, I highly recommend this vet!

  • I moved from out of state and found this vet 5 years ago and they have been like a second family to my two Rottweiler’s. Both of my dogs have had serious illnesses that require monthly treatment, strict diets, checkups and follow up. BMVH diagnosed both dogs with their illness immediately and provided spot on treatment for each. The doctors at BMVH have stayed after hours to provide service, talked me through issues on weekends and nights and have provided me with the specific training I need to maintain the dog’s health. However, the main reason I love the BMVH, is the service team of professionals that work at the front desk, the care takers and the vet techs. Read more…

  • I highly recommend Bryn Mawr Vet to everyone! The vets and staff are amazing! Nicole, the vet tech is the best! The vets are very thorough and helpful. Most of the doctors have been there for years. The entire staff takes the time to get to know you as a person. Dr. West does not push for medication or surgery, which I love. He actually found cancer in one of my cats, and luckily all we had to do was remove the tumor. Dr. West saved my cat from having to go through chemo or radiation. I have a survivor thanks to him! I could go on and on about each vet, but that would take up too much of your time! Please call them at 610-527-3484 to make your pet’s appointment.

  • We take our Boxer Xena and our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Gatsby to the Bryn Mawr Veterinary Hospital and are very happy with the care they receive. You can see the care given in a video my husband put up on YouTube, just search Main Line Pets in Google Video.

    I have found that Both Dr. Cantner and Dr. Shekmar to be caring considerate and knowledgeable. I think that they are the best on the Philadelphia Main Line for my dogs!

  • I would rate them highly. They are just the best I have ever had. They are loving and attentive to the pets. I have taken my dogs there for close to 20 years now. They saved my pets endless of amounts of time. They always take me right away if there is something urgent. I leave my pets there if I am going away. I just cannot say enough wonderful things about them. Their service is excellent. I would use them again in the future.

  • I rescue dachshunds and have been taking them to BMVH for over 20 years. I have had dogs with severe chronic ailments, and through the doctor’s tests and recommendations, they have been brought back to great health. I recently had to have one of my guys put to sleep, and the compassion which was given to me by both doctors and staff has left me with a beautiful moment of his journey to the Rainbow Bridge. All I can say is…you pay for what you get.

    If you want your dogs to be healthy and live to the golden age of 16, then I suggest taking them to Bryn Mawr Vet Hosp!

  • I was referred to BMVH from a co-worker. I have been going to BMVH for almost two years now and couldnt be more happy with the service I receive. They go the extra step to make sure my dog is receiving the best care possible! My Leo is an English bulldog so for some procedures (like neutering) it calls for extra special attention due to the bulldogs smushed faces and small trechia. I don’t feel like I would trust Leo to be taken care of at any other hospital. The staff have also been very helpful with informing me about Pet insurance ( I use VPI now) and taking care of filling out all of my claim forms for me. As for the other reviews on the hospital about price, I feel like BMVH prices are comparable to other hospitals in the area. I pay for my services at the hospital with the confidence that I know he is getting the best care in the area without ever feeling like they are charging me for things I don’t need.

  • My Boxer had a nasty problem that I won’t go into, but I called Bryn Mawr Vet. They got me an appointment that morning and Dr. Cantner explained the problem with my Dog. They had to operate and keep her for a few days, so I asked how much it would cost. They took the time to explain the options and I did not think it was more expensive than my previous vet, especially considering that they bathed her and babysat her for 2 days. They also had a really nice staff, a clean facility, and they called to confirm my follow up appointment. My physician could learn a few things from them.
