Practice History & Profile

Practice History

Affinity is like very few veterinary hospitals you will ever visit. Although a new practice, it has been a project several years in the making. After spending 6 years as a practice owner in North Carolina, Dr. Meredith and her husband returned back home to Pennsylvania in 2008 to raise their family.

Over the past 6 years, Dr. Meredith built a growing relief practice, providing much-needed breaks for local practitioners and caring for pets in Chester and Montgomery Counties. After searching for the right opportunity to return to practice ownership, Dr. Meredith took over the 330 Conestoga location in September 2013.

Our Building

The building and property are one of Chester County’s oldest landmarks. In fact, it is one of the original schoolhouses in Southeast Pennsylvania. Nestled between Sycamore trees that date back hundreds of years, the uniqueness of the building creates an experience of comfort, quiet, and friendliness for patients as they walk through the door.

Our Future

Our goal is to become the preferred pet healthcare provider for pets in Malvern, Phoenixville, Great Valley, and Frazer. We want to provide the highest level of patient care and communication, while delivering our services in ways that meet the needs of today’s busy pet owners.
