About Us

Thank you for supporting Love City Vet! Our story is a great one and all about enhancing the lives of our team, pets, and the community.

Our Story

Dr. Killian Lenahen, VMD – Founder and Owner: “I set out to build Love City Vet when I realized there was a lack of modern, local, and independent vet care in Philadelphia -specifically in my South Philly neighborhood. I also wanted to create a place where veterinary team members can feel valued and grow personally and professionally.”

At Love City Vet our core values guide us in all we do:

Lead with compassion

Leading with compassion is at the heart of everything we do here at Love City Vet. Our mission is to provide high-quality, affordable veterinary care to the people and animals of Philadelphia, and we couldn’t do that without a veterinary team of passionate, compassionate individuals.

Offer modern & equitable vet care

At Love City Vet, we are proud to offer modern and equitable care for all of our patients. We believe that every pet deserves to receive the best possible care, and we are committed to providing services that meet the unique needs of each individual animal and pet parent.

Value our community

We serve the Philadelphia area with love and compassion and are here to provide quality veterinary care to the animals in our community. As local community members ourselves, we understand the need to take an active role in supporting our community and the health and wellbeing of its members and pets.

Empower our team
We believe that every team member has the potential to be an excellent leader, and we are committed to helping them reach their full potential. Our goal is to help each team member develop the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in their career here at Love City Vet. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our team members and the communities we serve.













Our Logo’s Story

Love City Vet’s logo is a tribute to Dr. Lenahen’s previous senior pets, Monroe and Josephine. Josephine and Monroe would sit together in the wagon as they were wheeled around Philadelphia with passerbyers eager to stop and say hi to the senior pair.

At Love City Vet, pets of all ages and people of all backgrounds are welcome -so hop in the wagon!
