About Greenfield Vet

Greenfield Veterinary Hospital is proud to have served the Pittsburgh area since 1979. We are a well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care. We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with local specialists when special diagnostic procedures or treatments are required.

Our team is committed to providing the highest level of medicine along with friendly, compassionate service. We are a group of highly trained, experienced animal lovers who are devoted to giving our patients the best care possible. Our job is to not only treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but to also help you keep your pet happy and healthy.

*We currently see dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits and pocket pets. We are not accepting new avian patients at this time.
