I would HIGHLY recommend the South Hills Animal Hospital. The staff are all wonderful and Dr Fisfis and Dr Myton really care about your pets but have never recommended any unnecessary tests or treatments. My Mother's kitty (only 10 yrs old) stopped eating. We took her to SHAH and Dr Fifis ruled out any normal ailments and reccommended we take her for a CT scan (which they do not have the facilities for there). That same evening we found out she had a huge cancerous tumor. Even chemo and/or surgery would have prolonged her life by only a few months. We certainly didn't want to put her thru all of that. Money was not the issue. The only humane choice was to put her to sleep. When that time came Dr Myton had a wonder manner with her and us. And during the whole procedure each and every employee visited to offer condolences and tell us how beautiful Button was. My mother also recieved a sympathy card a few days after. I know I couldnt do their job and would probably come home each night with swollen eyes. I have read some of the other reviews and I have never seen anyone be rude or uncaring. And I am sure they try not to become to emotionally involved. Lets face it, you would have to harden yourself to a point if you worked at a shelter or vet office.....you would also have to be an animal lover ! In the last 4 years , I have had to put 2 of my cats to sleep due to old age......both lived to 19 years old. And I give partial credit to SHAH. I have always received top notch care there. They have never given me any reason to "shop around" !

WARNING........I use to take my dog to Dr. Fisfis, and i would use extreme caution EVERYONE! This animal hospital has to be amongst the WORST I have ever been too. The staff are the most inexperienced and impolite people EVER. They have 2 doctors that must be pushing 80 years old, and have personalities, and so-called knowledge of a pissant. I would love to know where they got their veterinary degrees. I dont believe any of the so-called staff have ever went to any type of schooling either. BE VERY CAREFUL

ive been taking all of my animals to this vet ever since we got them... i had called the other vet in castle shannon, but they were rude to me on the phone, so they lost out on a client. these people are all very nice and love animals. the doctors dont beat around the bush and try to push stuff you dont need. they are straight forward and to the point- they dont waste their time..or yours!

I've been going to the South Hills Animal Hospital for a few years now. They have been straightforward with me and gave my dog (a berner-shepherd mix) proper treatment. In my visits, the front office staff has been very friendly to both me and my dog and the vets were all about the dog. My dog gets a lot of attention when he goes there so he seems to approve of the place too.

The older gentlemen referred to is Dr. FisFis, he has been in practice at least 30 years or more at the same address. Dr FisFis took care of our family collie from the late 60's until the dog had to be put down in the late 70's. In the early 90's my husband and I got a puppy and started taking him to castle shannon vets as years past and several quarterly trips to castle shannon vets they could not diagnose the dog had lupus by the time we found a vet that knew what they were talking about the dog had to be put down. I have now rescued a 9 year old border collie with some problems, I first went to Pleasent Hills Vets and I felt pressured to but what ever they were pushing at the time I have since returned to Dr. FisFis and I am satisfied with the care
received. Thank You Dr.'s and Staff

Throughout the years, we've taken our family dogs to quite a few different veterinarians in the city. We like this practice the best, both for their effectiveness and their "bedside manner." I also have a kitten who just developed FLUTD, and since they've handled all his kitten checkups very well, I'm scheduling an appointment with them tomorrow.

My mother said the vets at this practice told her they also volunteer their time at the Penn Animal Hospital. (I can't personally confirm this, but I'll ask at my next appointment!)

They also treat small animals!

PS - PghPA's review mentioned an older male vet. I don't recognize ever seeing that doctor. As for the rest of the review's concerns, they just don't fit with my experiences there. Perhaps the staff has changed since that time, or there are more staff at the practice than I know about.

Pros: knowledgeable vets, convenient to the South Hills

Cons: no 24 hour emergency, sometimes hard to reach by phone

I'm new to the area. I took my dog there for routine vaccinations and had an uneasy feeling about the place. 1. The desk staff was not friendly. 2. The vet was old and feeble. He did not introduce himself or try to make any connection with my dog. 3. While I was waiting to pay, a man came in with his dog and said that the dog was still "bleeding" and the problem was not resolved at his last visit. He had some dispute over the care given to his dog. I will not be going back there. The entire place gave me an uneasy feeling.
