MIX, MATCH & SAVE!
Hello everyone! We apologize for being MIA on Facebook lately. If you have recently been into the hospital, I am sure you understand why. We have been extremely busy with appointments. Thank you all for your patience and cooperation throughout these unprecedented times!
Currently, our protocol is as follows:
Clients are allowed inside the building under the following circumstances:
*NO SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19
*MASKS ARE REQUIRED
*LIMIT 2 CLIENTS PER PET (exceptions may be made for euthanasia)
*YOU MUST CALL WHEN YOU ARRIVE since we have a small office we are coordinating those coming and going so there are not too many people inside at one time (Please be patient with us. If you see someone (with or without a pet) go into the hospital before you even though you called please remember they may not be here for an appointment. We also have clients dropping off and picking up for multiple reasons such as surgeries, boarding and medications.)
On an unrelated note, we have a few exciting projects going on behind the scenes that we are excited to be able to share with you soon!
Name: Cocoa Puff
Age: 9 years
No collar or tags. Found around Glenolden. Some one dropped this little guy at our hospital yesterday, please let us know if you have any info that could help us reach his owner.
Collingdale Police Department
This pupper was found in the 100 block of Wayne Ave. no chip or collar.
Please call the Collingdale Police Dept. if you have any information on her owner.
🚨LOST DOG 🚨
Female dog, most likely middle aged, possible Yorkie mix found running around in Glenolden. Very friendly. No collar or chip. If this is your dog, please call the hospital 610-586-1344 and I can get in touch with the couple that found her.
Penn Vet wishes you and yours a happy and safe Easter tomorrow!
Please keep in mind that lilies are highly toxic to cats, and may cause kidney failure. The following tip sheet can be downloaded at https://www.vet.upenn.edu/about/press-room/tip-sheets
Just a reminder! 😂
Our protocols have changed due to the continuing spread of COVID-19. At this point in time, clients will not be allowed inside the hospital (a few exceptions may be made due to the nature of the case).
-We will continue to see medical cases. This includes injuries, illnesses, and euthanasia. All wellness checks and vaccines will be postponed until further notice except for puppies and kittens that are currently unprotected. Nail trims will also be postponed unless they are beginning to curl into the pad.
-When you arrive at the hospital please call us from your car at 610-586-1344. We will ask you to meet us at the top of the stairs. For dogs, we will switch leashes from yours to one of ours. Cats must remain in their carriers. We ask that you clean carriers, leashes and collars as carefully as possible before arrival with an alcohol-based solution.
-We will ask you to remain in your vehicle while we examine your pet. If you would like to be "present" during the exam, we are offering the option of downloading the Zoom app to your phone. We will send you an invitation and we will be able to video chat throughout the appointment. If you are unable to use Zoom, we will call you with our initial findings and an estimate for how we would like to proceed. All payments will be done by credit card or Care Credit over the phone. When we are finished we will bring your pet back out to you.
-If your dog is being dropped off for a surgery, we will read the agreement to you over the phone and ask for verbal consent.
-If you need to pick up food, medicine, flea/tick preventative or heartworm preventative, please call us ahead of time. We will process your payment over the phone. When you arrive, give us a call and we will run your products out to you.
Once again, any clients displaying symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough or shortness of breath), as well as those that have been in contact with someone who is or who have traveled internationally in the last month or to an area in the United States with high incidence of COVID-19, should call us from home and we can discuss the best options for your pet and the situation.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during these difficult times. We appreciate every single one of you. Stay distant, stay safe ❤️
Beginning today we will be implementing additional protocols in hopes to help prevent additional spreading of COVID-19 while still being able to provide care for your furry friends.
-We will only be seeing patients with medical issues. We will be postponing all vaccine and annual wellness visits (except for puppies and kittens that are still unprotected) until further notice. This include nail trims.
-We ask that when you arrive for your appointment, you call us from you car. We will let you know if you are able to bring your pet in at that time or if we will be coming out to get your pet.
-If you do come into the office, we will ask you to wait in the reception area while we examine your pet.
-If you need to pick up medicine, please call us ahead of time. We will ask you to pay with a card over the phone. When you get here please call and one of the techs can run the medicine out to your car.
-It is essential that anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, or shortness of breath) or who has traveled internationally in the last 14 days or to an area in the United States with high incidence of COVID-19 refrain from coming into our hospital. If your pet needs to be seen for a medical reason please give us a call and we will discuss your options.
Please remember, we are a very small staff. We are going to do our absolute best to remain open and provide care for your pets but if one of us gets sick, we will all get sick. We are doing everything possible on our part to make sure we remain healthy, please help us do the same.
(The kitten pictured is Thora. She wears a bell almost as big as her so her almost 19 year old sister knows when she's around and ready to start trouble.)
Diego has been helping us with chores around the hospital. Turns out, laundry is his specialty! Show us your fur friends helping around the house in the comments!
We are so proud of Ozzie!
When we saw him in July 2019, he weighed 72 pounds. His owners were doing everything possible to help him lose weight but instead he kept gaining. Dr. Gal decided it was time to check his thyroid levels. His T4 level was 0.8 and the normal range is 1.0 - 4.0 which means he has hypothyroidism. We started Ozzie on thyroid medicine. Yesterday, we saw Ozzie for the first time in 6 months. We were shocked when we saw him; he looks like a new dog. He now weighs 53 pounds. He has made huge progress and we're all so happy for him. These are his before and after pictures!
As of now, our hospital will continue to function as it normally does. If you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 (coughing, fever or shortness of breath) or recently had contact with someone who is please reschedule your appointment. If your pet needs to be seen for a medical reason please have someone else bring him/her to the appointment.
Coronavirus: Fact, Fiction, & Your Furry Family
With coronavirus, or COVID-19, dominating the headlines, you might be wondering, “How does this affect me and my pet?” The truth is, there is still a great deal we don’t know about this novel virus. Its origin is still under investigation, and whether pets can actually contract it is still a matter of debate. (There was a case in Hong Kong of a weak positive test in a dog, but, according to numerous news sources, pets can carry but are not susceptible to the disease.)
Now that cases of COVID-19 are being reported in the U.S., the main objective is to prevent the disease’s spread, and there are several steps you can take to minimize its impact on your family. Our advice to our pet parent clients is very similar to that of what your primary physician might recommend and follows closely the guidelines put forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention:
•Wash your hands often and thoroughly, particularly after touching animals.
•If at all possible, avoid people who are displaying symptoms of COVID-19. These include coughing, sneezing, and trouble breathing.
•If you’re sick, stay home, and try to avoid close contact with your pet while you’re symptomatic.
•Stock up on your pet’s medication. As the disease progresses around the globe, pharmaceuticals might be hard to come by. And in the event of a home quarantine situation, you don’t want to run out.
•Skip the face masks. They don’t really protect you from the virus, and it’s crucial that protective gear is reserved for people who really need it, like healthcare workers who regularly come in direct contact with the sick.
Bottom line? Plan ahead, be responsible and don’t panic. If you’d like more information about COVID-19 and pets, check out this article from the American Medical Veterinary Association (https://www.avma.org/resources-tools/animal-health-and-welfare/covid-19?fbclid=IwAR256gJ24ZRCjGgq4SFGfI-6c_uyfzDiSuca3mXM3_D-ILtugr48pOIjLzY). And you’re always welcome to contact us at 610-586-1344 with questions or concerns.
avma.org A new human coronavirus that emerged from China has put public health officials on high alert. Here’s the information veterinarians need, both to answer questions and to address potential medical shortage issues.
Dr. Gal is back but we would like to say a big thank you to Dr. Lauer for taking such wonderful care of our patients while he was away. Dr. Lauer is holding a new patient of ours named Gracie. Gracie is a 13 week old Soft-coated Wheaton Terrier. She is very calm and quiet as well as unbelievably soft and sweet.
Happy International Women’s Day!
In honor of International Women’s Day, we’d like to celebrate all of the fantastic women in the veterinary industry. Thank you for your tireless dedication, compassion, and tenacity. #EachforEqual #IWD2020

UPDATE: ASPEN HAS BEEN FOUND ☺️
!!!!!!!!!!!! LOST DOG !!!!!!!!!!
A white 3 yr old Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Aspen is missing. He is short and stocky about 42 pounds. His ears are not clipped. The owner's granddaughter opened a door and the dog escaped. He was last seen with the handle of a reflective black leash around his neck. He does not have a collar. He is microchipped but it is still registered to the breeder in Florida rather than the owner. He was last seen near Morton Ave in Chester, PA. If you have any information on Aspen please contact us (through Facebook messenger since we will not be open until Monday morning) so we can get in touch with the owner. Please feel free to share this post. Let's get this little guy home!
Finding that special someone the perfect gift this season can be a daunting task. Keep in mind that pets don’t always make the best gifts. In fact, statistics show that pets who are gifted have a higher rate of turnover to shelters. A pet should only be brought into a family after thoughtful consideration. Instead, put together a “new pet” pack with items like a dog bed, collar & leash, treats and such. You can include a certificate to cover local shelter adoption fees, too! This way they can pick the pet that is the best fit for them.
