At Fishtown Animal Hospital, we offer comprehensive medical services and integrative therapies for cats and dogs in the Philadelphia area; including wellness checkups, vaccinations, surgery, dental care, acupuncture, laser therapy and PEMF, and radiology.
It’s important for your pet to see a vet at least once each year. We perform in-hospital physical examinations to monitor your pet’s wellness. Our head-to-tail exams include checking body weight, temperature, looking at the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hair coat and skin, evaluating the heart, lungs, abdomen, and lymph nodes, and checking muscles and joints.
Protecting pets from diseases like distemper, parvovirus, and rabies, vaccinations are a critical part of your pet’s health. The rabies vaccine is required by law in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, while other vaccines are recommended based on an animal’s individual lifestyle.
As a full service veterinary hospital, we offer cutting-edge, affordable outpatient surgical services, including including spay/neuter, removal of mass/lump and foreign body, wound repair and select emergency surgeries.
Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet’s health! We offer comprehensive dentistry services, including full dental examinations, teeth cleanings, dental x-rays, and dental surgery.
An alternative therapy, acupuncture is known to affect all major body systems, and is used to increase circulation, release endorphins to treat pain, relieve muscle spasms, and stimulate the body’s defense systems. Acupuncture is one of the safest treatment methods when practiced by a trained acupuncturist. Sessions take 10-30 minutes, during which time pets often fall asleep.
Used to treat a variety of conditions, laser therapy is a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free alternative treatment method. It can be used in conjunction with more conventional treatment protocols. Depending on your pet’s condition, relief is often evident within hours of treatment.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) are said to allow an animal’s body to achieve a natural state of wellness. MagnaWave machines have a unique electrical current that runs through a copper coil that creates a pulsing magnetic field. Using PEMF is said to promote cellular exercise, increase oxygenation, and reduce inflammation.
Radiology & digital ultrasound
Our state-of-the-art radiology technology is an important aspect of your pet’s overall preventive and wellness care. We use safe, non-invasive imaging techniques, including digital ultrasounds and x-rays, which can allow us to make advanced diagnoses in a timely fashion while minimizing the stress on your pet.
