This is the WORST place of business I've EVER been to.
First they diagnosed my dog with Kidney failure, then sold us way expired kidney food. Got a second opinion, and her kidneys were FINE. She has Cushings, which is what I TOLD the "Dr" it was to begin with.
Second their patient of 3 years died, and not one, "I'm sorry' or a card---ZERO acknowledgment that my dog died.
Third-RECEPTIONIST IS AN OLD HAG WITH A HORRIBLE ATTITUDE. They need to fire her immediately. She is disgustingly rude.

I have lived in the Sewickley area for 12 years and have had all of my dogs treated at SVH. I have nothing but good things to say about the doctors as well as the staff of the facility. They are not only knowledgeable, but wonderful, caring people who have always treated my pets as part of their family. There is something to be said for developing a long term relationship with your pet's caretakers...and I am happy to have mine at SVH.

The vets and staff couldn't be any nicer, and they are very knowledgeable. It's obvious they love animals.
To the people complaining about price, I also go to Met Vet in Robinson, PVSEC on Campe Horne Road, and occasionally Avalon Vet and Spay Neuter Clinic. Sewickley Vet's prices are very comparable. There may be slight variances in prescription costs or appointment/procedure fees, but it seems to even out when compared with the others.
I have 8 cats of various ages and health conditions, and I rescue/TNR ferals, so I spend a lot of time in vet offices and have dozens, if not hundreds, of other experiences to compare.
I haven't always had good vibes or experiences at vet offices, but I can honestly say I have had NO problems at all with SVH. I'm perfectly comfortable taking my pets there.

I think the pills prescribed (without an explaination) help to kill my dog since one of the side affects is breathing. The owner vet is terrible. Don't go there.

Bad recent experience. Treatment program not explained, meds given without explanation as to why and what to expect; no explanation as to possible side effects of drugs. No treatment program fully explained by vet; even given relevant questions. Lack of care or interest in my dog's well-being by vet.
Very expensive.
The vet tech was wonderful. Exceptional, really.
Money is the bottom line for this veterinary practice. I knew there must be a reason why there were zero people in the waiting room and zero cars in their parking area. Why I had driven by there countless times and seen very few cars of patrons.
My dog is extremely ill and I may lose him. That's all I have to say to the people who want a credit card number to give advice over the phone after a visit the day before - people who want a credit card number to follow up via phone; and to the people who don't understand that $300+ for a blood test and an xray is unreasonable. Perhaps if they had more patrons they wouldn't have to gouge the ones they get in order to make their living. Why not offer to do just one of those things; instead of giving an estimate which includes a kennel fee for the time your dog spends there getting the tests done; a fee for hazardous waste, a fee for "fluids," et al.

Very high rates. Middling to poor bed-side manner. Most of staff has attitude. I think that the owner is more worried about her bank account than our pets.

I didn't like this place from day one, but they're nearby.
We've suffered through a few years with their lackluster care and VERY high fees, but now we're changing vets.
Front desk is surly and mean-spirited.
This practices seems to care about money, not pets.
I am not impressed by either Doctor Dismukes or Begley.
Getting one of them to call you back is a feat!
Below average "bed-side manner"!

I am new to this area, called this morning with an EMERGENCY !
They refused to see my kitten. I could go on and on and on...
The kitten died in my car on the way to Pittsburgh to another Vet.

A place for the trendy of Sewickey to bring their poodles, but lacking humane care for the animal. Because my dog got upset on one visit and wouldn't let the vet put a muzzle on her from now on I am supposed to stop down at the vets office before my next vist and get drugs to CALM her down.Thank God this vet is not a baby doctor. Thanks but no thanks, I'll go to a vet that cares for animals not the wallet.

This is an excellent practice.
The staff is welcoming. The vets are well trained and use common sense in their treatment. And the facility is sparkling clean without any "creature" odors. Our dogs really do not mind going and for being good they always get a treat!
