“I Need a 24 Hour Emergency Vet Hospital”
Hopefully, you will never make that statement. But if you do, you absolutely should know where the closest 24-7 emergency vet hospital is and how to get there.
There are two 24 hour emergency vet hospitals in Philadelphia: Penn and VSEC. But they may not be that close if you live near Southwest or Northeast Philadelphia,
I also found 5 emergency vet hospitals in surrounding counties. Two of them are in New Jersey, the other 3 are in three different counties bordering Philadelphia.
