East Goshen Veterinary Center

We are a privately owned full service veterinary hospital in West Chester that strives to make sure you and your pet receive the best experience everytime you come through our doors. We have two veterinarians who have been practicing for over two decades and whose experience can help diagnose anything from the simple to the complex. We offer appointments six days a week including evening hours two days a week and Saturday morning appointments for those who work 9-5 hours. Our staff prides themselves on getting to know our clients well enough that you often only have to tell us your name and they can fill in your pet's name in a heartbeat!

If you are looking for a new veterinarian in the West Chester area, feel free to explore our new website to get a feel for our doctors and staff. We have information on many areas of interest for pet owners, including some quick links down below to our popular links. If you are a new client please check out our New Client page for a registration form you can print out ahead of an appointment as well as some useful information.


We are excited to announce that we are hosting an Open House on Saturday, October 5th from 11am - 1pm. Join us for food, fun, and giveaways. Meet our new doctors, view our office after the remodel, and learn about our new services like laser surgery. There will be a Cutest Pet Contest so remember to bring in photos of your pet (so we can then put them up on our new photo board afterwards!) Raffles will be held offering free vaccines for a year, free Heartgard and Nexgard for a year, and more! All proceeds go to buy dog and cat food that we donate to the West Chester Food Cupboard. Take your chance at a raffle prize and support a local charity, it's a win-win.

Please note that we are now known as the East Goshen Veterinary Center (formerly the East Goshen Veterinary Hospital). Our website and logo have changed but our location and staff still remains the same. If you were a client of Dr. Barbara Hitchens you do not have to set up a new client account with us, our staff still knows you!
