My Saving Place

-Boots Cutruzzula from Pittsburgh, PA
Pet Name: Boots

Hi, My name is Boots I am a beautiful Beagle. My first visit was a little scary. See my first owner abused me. I was 2 at my first visit now I am almost 5. They took such good care of me that very soon I was healthy, happy, and would not go anywhere else. My little friend is only 1, and he likes it too. All the doctors and all the other people are so nice, they even give you a treat when you leave. My mom and I want to say thank you for making me healthy. P.S. I must confess I am a little bit overweight. I am so cute my people give me a little to many treats.

The Best all the way around

-Joni Levine from Pittsburgh, PA
Pet Name: Bentley-Tony-Angelo-Vivianne-Sylvia-Lucy

I have been bringing my pets to VCA Fox Chapel Animal Hospital since 1976. I have been to other veterinarians in the Pgh area as well as other places around the country. One of the reasons I have stayed in this area is because of them! I get teased by some that I balk at going to many of the places that are closer to me to drive 45 minutes to VCA Fox Chapel. I could not say enough about the skilled and compassionate doctors there. I have always felt that they were working in partnership with me to provide the best care for my cats. They go above and beyond by staying educated in the most current practices (even attending symposium with my cat's ailment in mind) sharing information with me and always answering all my concerns and questions promptly and thoroughly. My regard for this practice goes beyond the doctors to the technicians as well! They are super at keeping you informed about a hospitalized pet and treat your pet as if they were their own. The office staff is also tops! From the wonderful office manager to the receptionists, I have found everyone to treat me and my cats with true regard and care!

the only place to treat my ferret

-Rachel Giuliano from New Castle, PA
Pet Name: Sullivan

I live in New Castle and we have no vets in the area who treat ferrets. My ferret is almost 9 years old and as such has many health problems. Dr. Wagner is wonderful!!! He really knows ferrets and is very honest and helpful. The staff is polite and courteous. And the services are very reasonable. If you have a ferret and cannot find an excellent vet, I highly recommend Dr. Wagner at VCA Fox Chapel Animal Hospital. I truly believe he has extended the life of my ferret.

Compassion Understated

-Lynn Crilley from Verona, PA
Pet Name: Abby, Chloe, and Dearly Departed Chelsea

We have been taking, collectively my entire family, all of our dogs to VCA Fox Chapel for 16+ years and would refer them, time and again, to any pet owner who wants the utmost professional and unwavering compassionate veterinary group in the Pittsburgh Area. We recently had to put down one of our dogs and when faced with this very difficult decision, Dr. Miggins was the calm and consummate professional we needed. I have also seen him take an interest in our Pomeranian who was diagnosed with a rare disease (for her breed) and we together, nursed her back to great health. From the moment you walk in and are greeted by the technical staff at the front desk to the moment you walk out of the examination room after talking to one of the vets, you feel a sense of relief that whatever experience you having with your pet, you aren't alone.
Thank you VCA Fox Chapel, you epitomize what pet owners want for the well-being of their four (or two) legged companions.


-Mitchel Weiss from Pittsburgh, PA

I was extremely pleased with the service my cat Smokey received from Dr Resek. Dr Resek suggested we try an anti depressent for a recurring urinary tract infection. She asked a few questions and determined smokey was probably stressed with frequent moves. After first reassuring us that there was no blockage, he received an antibiotic shot and a prescription for the anti depressant. Dr Resek was the FIRST vet after numerous similar visits that suggested the anti depressant. Charges were reasonable and all staff seemed to be very caring. I would highly recommend Dr Resek and VCA Fox Chapel

They have the nicest employees

-Kathy from Tarentum, PA
Pet Name: zeus and apollo

I use to take my dog to a different vet and he would say it will be 50.00 and when all is said and done it more like 250.00 I started taking my dog back to VCA Fox Chapel and they were so nice and very polite and helpful always making sure we were ok while waiting for the doctor. My dog normally doesn't like vets, but in this case he loves going to the vet and is not afraid and trust Dr. Urn when examining him always gentle with Zeus. Recently got another dog a puppy and both of them really like her and that is all i need to see I will never change vets due to her mannerisms with them


-Chelle from Pittsburgh, PA
Pet Name: Dewey

Words cannot describe how wonderful the doctors and staff are at VCA Fox Chapel. Dr Uhl is fantastic. She is very thorough, and she is great with our dog. The whole staff was also compassionate when two of our dogs passed away. I wouldn't think of taking my dog anywhere else :)

Thank You

-Tiffany B. from Tarentum, PA
Pet Name: Church, Crosby and Chloe

Dr. Resek is amazing. She treats us like family and treats our cats even better. She has a wonderful, calming personality and is very knowledgeable. I trust her advice 110% and would recommend her to anyone.

Most Caring Staff

-Dave Posney from Sarver, PA
Pet Name: Markie

My two aunts took their 14 year old yorkie to Fox Chapel Animal Clinic when it was having problems. Due to age and internal organ failures, the dog needed to be euthanized. The staff was so caring they even stayed after closing in the dark to console and watch over my aunts until I could get down there to drive them home. We really appreciate watching over them and making a difficult time the best it could be.

So Great!

-Brittany from Pittsburgh, PA
Pet Name: Kitty

Hi! I love taking my cat to this vet. Everyone is so friendly and Amanda Resek was amazing. Some vets make me feel like a horrible pet parent that I don't get a million tests done...not her. She was so understanding and was so accommodating. Thank you for taking care of me and my big guy, even though he's so feisty!
