Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center

Our History

In 1994, Dr. Robert J. Orsher opened the doors to the Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center (VSEC), a 24-hour small animal hospital in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. His goal for this hospital was to bring board-certified specialists from multiple disciplines under one roof to practice as a cohesive team. VSEC has since grown to include locations in Levittown and Philadelphia with 15 specialty services and 50 veterinarians. View More »
