Kind words encourage us in our daily quest to create a spectacular experience—every single visit.

Google Reviews prove Paoli Vetcare is the best vet on the Main Line!
Since 1997 we have been clients of Dr Rowan and Company. Our first dog was Woodward aka Woody, the largest of the litter a Golden Retriever. Next we downsized and went with a Cairn Terrier and he managed to meet and survive an opossum. Not without a Rabies booster though. Now we are on our 2nd Cairn but this one is a true Terrorist. Kobe is mellowing out now a bit thanks to Prozac and Dr Rowan & Team.

Paoli Vetcare has state-of-the-art COVID safety protocols:
Taking my 2 cats for annual exams was done with great respect for Covid protocol–and of course also for my kitties! Contactless and easy phone discourse to chat about cat health; was very easy.

Paoli Vetcare has amazing support by clients on Nextdoor and had been especially recognized for our Fear Free® approach to the care of cats. We’ve been voted the Nextdoor Neighborhood Favorite Veterinarian every year since voting began!!
Paoli Vetcare is the best. I have been taking my pets there for 15 years. Dr Rowan is an excellent diagnostician and has treated one of my cats with multiple ailments with great success. Janine is wonderful with cats and the practice took great care of my sick kitty when he was boarded.

Paoli Vetcare has state-of-the-art COVID safety protocols:
Even before COVID, Dr Rowan, Dr Dawn and all of the staff at Paoli Vetcare were consummate, caring professionals. Since COVID, I have been so impressed with all of the protocols they have in place to protect our animals, their staff, and of course, us.
They manage to maintain every bit of kindness and care, no matter the circumstances, and I feel so at ease knowing my dogs are getting the best possible care. The community that makes up Paoli Vetcare deserve our support, as they support us and our pets. I recommend them without reservation!

Dr. Rowan 5 Star Review


Kyle Wildemore

We had a really good experience taking our large dog here. Our dog is very scared of the vet and Paoli Vetcare did a great job trying to make him comfortable and make sure he had a good experience.
In the past, we’ve had vets not give our dog a full exam because he was scared and they didn’t feel comfortable with him, but that was not the case here! They took the time to give him the personal attention that helps him have a good experience!
The COVID experience was really smooth (car side drop-off for his appointment) and they even let my husband bring him in to meet the vet tech to try to help with his experience.
I took off a star because we had to wait almost 45 minutes for them to get to us, but to me, that communicates that Paoli Vetcare is willing to take the time needed for each animal, rather than rushing through, and having a scared dog, that means a lot, though I know others don’t always feel that way.
Thanks for an awesome experience!

Paoli Vet Care 4 Star Review


Sydney Tilley

Endearing, smart, passionate team over there! I took my ~11 week old puppy here for his first exam. Quite frankly, I was unsettled about being separated from him when they took him in for the exam (probably more so than he was)! As soon as I met the individuals who were coordinating the little guy’s care, I felt at ease.
I was instructed to give him some medications, and I was a little overwhelmed by the process. I was instructed to call whenever I had any sort of question or concern about the regiment, and the as provided a ton of useful information about puppy training, behavior, health, etc. Again, I found myself at ease. Highly recommended. Thank you!

I always recommend Paoli Vetcare. Dr. Rowan and Dr. “Dawn” are consistently compassionate and invested in keeping our dogs happy and healthy.

We also LOVE the rest of the staff as we depend heavily on them when we board our dogs.

I truly appreciate Dr. Urioste’s personal interest in my pet and especially her follow up phone calls—most vets do not do this. Thanks Dr. Urioste!!

Dr. Dawn Urioste goes out of her way to be particularly gentle and caring with our cat, and particularly courteous and informative in her interaction with my wife and me. The rest of the staff is consistently courteous and considerate to both of us. 

You do everything I expect a quality veterinary service to do, and do it well. Vet service is high quality, and extreme care and affection is shown towards our cat during the visit.

I love the vet that we’ve been seeing—Dr. Dawn. She makes me feel great and at ease about everything—not to mention she has a wonderful sense of humor and really shows that she cares.

I feel as though your prices are extremely reasonable as well.

John Pernock

My cat vomited her food for 2 days, ate little if anything, the following 2 days. Emily suggested what to feed her & symptoms to monitor before I could bring her in for an office visit. I dropped my cat off and quickly received call from Dr. Dawn with thorough information and a diagnosis. Now all is well.

Kay Blatt

I love Dr. Dawn, she is, by far, the best vet I have ever encountered. I’ve been a pet owner for 40+ years. Casey loves his massages after his check-up and Micki, she’s still not too sure… Thank you all!

Great experience for our dogs—I have never left them before & they looked great when I picked them up & it was such a relief knowing I didn’t have to worry if they were ok when I was away!

5-star Google Reviews


The staff at Paoli Vetcare and Dr. Dawn are literally angels sent from above. I have never encountered a more friendly, COMPASSIONATE, and thorough vet.

Every. Single. Staff member is amazing and I cannot be more impressed with this facility. I do not “technically” have children, but most of you who have pets will understand when I say that my 2 dogs are my children, they are the main components of what make up my heart and soul.

I wish I could shout it from the rooftops that Dr. Dawn is truly the best doctor ever. She calls to check in and it is clear she stays late to make phone calls to clients and tries to do everything in her power to make sure that your animal gets better and receives the best care possible. She has gone above & BEYOND for me multiple times and continues to do so.

In 2020 I was let go from my job of 5 years – Paoli Vetcare has consistently worked with me and Dr. Dawn has personally researched medication for my one dog Ramona, to try and find the best price for me so that I can save money. Everytime I get off the phone with her I just can’t believe how kind and caring she is.

So I definitely wanted to make sure I left a review to share with anyone looking for a new vet to look no further than Paoli Vetcare. I am so lucky I found this place and will always trust my babies in Dr. Dawns hands… Ramona (Morkie) & Josie (teacup yorkie) are forever grateful to Paoli Vetcare for making them feel better ❤️

Amanda Algeo

My husband and I had a consult and initial appt with Dr. Rowan today. Dr. Rowan came into the room and immediately sat on the floor with our dog. (We loved that).

He was interactive, kind, compassionate and totally unthreatening. He was thorough with his exam and spent a lot of time with us in coming up with a better solution for our dogs’ epilepsy.

He even followed up with a phone call after we got home with additional recommendations. I would highly recommend Dr. Rowan and Paoli Vetcare if in need of a vet with these special qualities. Thank you for your help!

Paoli Vetcare is wonderful. Our dog has had chronic medical issues since birth and Dr. Rowan and Dr. Urioste have both helped us manage his treatment plan and have guided us through some tough times. I highly recommend Paoli Vetcare.

Janet Ross

Dr. Dawn Urioste was so good with my cats and my kids. She listened to their stories and reports, and treated their concerns with an attentive demeanor. It was clear how much she loves animals when she handled my cats.

Tara Morrison

You have been the best vet for our pack of hounds for 30 years, and do a fantastic job for us, including treatment of injured hounds.

On my most recent trip to the vet we were seen by Dr. Dawn. She could not of been more friendly and kind. I could see how much she truly cares for Sophie. Your staff as well is quite welcoming. I love to see a dog behind the counter.

Wendy Harbison

Jay Rowan is hands down the best vet ever! I trust him completely with the care of my dogs.

I love Dr. Rowan. He has a practical approach to taking care of animals and I appreciate the fact that he takes a conservative approach to treatment. It keeps the animals’ stress levels low and saves $$$!

I love the way Jay practices medicine – very caring and compassionate. We have been going to him for more than 10 years.

Betsy Hargus

Dr. Urioste loves her patients! She fusses over my pups when they arrive, and treats them gently throughout their exams. She really strives to lower their anxiety. By the end of the visit, she has my Scotties literally eating out of her hand.

Judy Govatos

We love Paoli Vetcare – even though it is a 45 minute drive, it is definitely worth it!

My cat was very ill and Dr. Rowan called every week to discuss how he was doing and the treatment plan and fully explained each option available… Happy to say my cat is now doing well.

We have been going to Jay and his staff for years. We have entrusted ALL our cats (and previously dogs) to his care–which he has consistently administered professionally and caringly over these many years. Great assistants as well.

Jim Govatos

You guys have been caring for my pets for 17 years! I could never find another vet that’s more awesome than you guys ❤️  Thank you so much for all you have done for Piper. We can’t thank you enough!!!!

I like everything about this vet practice. The decor, the staff, the doctors, and how the doctors take the time to educate me, and not make me feel self-conscious for asking questions, everything. I have not one complaint.

I feel the staff genuinely treats my pets as if they were there own. I will continue to bring my pets. And, any future fur babies that may join our family in the future.

Donna Saporosa

We just love everyone at Paoli Vetcare. We have a long history there and wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Sandy Norris

Our concerns about our failing older dog were addressed and we were treated with compassion and given informative, professional advice.

My dog is treated very well. The staff and doctors care for him and dote over him.

As always great care, superior visits and caring boarding – plenty of TLC for Daniel Tiger, a friendly cute fellow, but high maintenance noisy cat and Colby Jack, a shy devoted pup, age 10. Thank you PVC!

Banny Ackerman (PORTER)

Extremely knowledgeable doctor who provides his full attention to your visit and is thorough with the examination. When needed a clear explanation is provided that easy to understand.

Always great service and good to have a trusted place to board our pup when we’re out of town.
