About Us

Hamilton Veterinary Services LLC (HVS) was born in 2020 out of the need to care for my patients during the COVID 19 outbreak. When COVID forced my workplace to close to the public I was suddenly without a place to care for my beloved patients.

A house call veterinary practice has been my dream for some time. This combined with my determination to continue to help my patients and clients was the impetus behind HVS.

I have found it a privilege to provide healthcare to my patients in their home setting during such challenging times. My experience has shown how positively it affects animals when they feel at ease in their own environment. It has also been special developing deeper relationships with my clients; house call practice has brought me closer into the fold of my patient’s and client’s lives. Additionally, clients benefit being present for their pet’s medical care. The safety challenges of COVID 19 have necessitated that clients wait in a parking lot or on the street while their pet receives medical care at brick-and-mortar veterinary practices. The positive results of providing a lower stress, more personal and informative environment for patients and clients has made life a bit easier for everyone.

Dr. Hamilton

Dr. Hamilton has always loved animals. She grew up with a house full of animals including dogs, cats, guinea pigs, mice and crawfish, not necessarily all at once. She had her own neighborhood pet-sitting service and volunteered for various animal shelters over the years.

Dr. Hamilton was born and raised in a suburb outside of Philadelphia. She attended a Quaker high school, graduated from the Honors Program at Randolph-Macon College, and after a stint working at the US Department of Justice as a paralegal, Dr. Hamilton attended and graduated from the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in 2007. Not finished with her pursuit of learning, she pursued training in small animal acupuncture and herbal medicine at the Chi Institute of Chinese Medicine in 2016.

Dr. Hamilton loves being able to help her patients with both Eastern and Western Medicine and uses this integrative approach to medicine to help her patients thrive.

In her free time, she enjoys traveling, baking, reading, anything beach or water related and spending time with friends and family.
Dr. Hamilton's current furry crew includes a sweet and eternally happy 3-legged Pitbull named Nugs and a loyal, loving, darling and delightful tabby cat named Ms. Mommies.
