Focusing on Preventive Care

The specific life stages of dogs and cats require trained awareness of related diseases and conditions. Concerns that are typical of specific life stages include the following:

Puppies and Kittens
Distemper, respiratory issues, and intestinal parasites
Adult Dogs and Cats
Obesity, periodontal disease, allergies, and genetic disorders, and endocrine diseases such as diabetes
Senior Pets
Cancers, bone and joint disorders such as arthritis, diabetes, cognitive dysfunction/decline (senility), heart disease, and nutritional concerns

Regular wellness exams and dental care offer a strong level of protection against the development of many diseases and conditions, from gum disease to obesity.

In the puppy and kitten stage, the vaccination series offers effective protection against many deadly or debilitating diseases, such as distemper and respiratory illnesses. With regular wellness care and boosters, these vaccines offer lifetime protection.

Veterinary Diagnostics & Treatment

In adult and senior pets, wellness exams and diagnostics allow us to find developing problems at their earliest stages and initiate treatment. This is the best practice for dogs and cats, providing optimum opportunity for recovery with the least amount of discomfort and intervention. Benefits for pet owners include the least amount of visits to the vet, providing treatment, and cost.

Our in-house laboratory and digital radiology department provide modern diagnostics for fast and accurate results. For complex or advanced testing, we use a reputable veterinary reference laboratory with rapid results and online consultation.

Medical treatments include the convenience of our pharmacy, for prescription medications, preventive products, and nutritional support. Our compassionate team utilizes the latest in pain control, for uncomfortable patients, until healing begins and recovery is achieved. We are committed to comfort and quality of life for every patient, from the puppy and kitten stage until end of life.

“Bailey absolutely loves going! Every time we take a walk past their building, Bailey waits at the door to go in. He doesn't even notice when they give him a shot because he's so preoccupied with the treats the technician is giving him.”

“After struggling to get appointments at my old vet I was thrilled to find that Center City Vet is not only flexible, but friendly, affordable and knowledgable. I have felt nothing but appreciated and welcomed at this practice. My cats even seemed to have the best appointments of their lives (in terms of calmness) due to the gentle but thorough. I think the greenies treats helped too! Highly recommend this practice!”

“My dog Molly has been a patient since we adopted her at 6 months old. She loves Dr. Cohen as much as we do. He is a brilliant veterinarian with a love for animals you expect from a Vet but rarely find.” — Joshua

“Dr. Cohen and the rest of the staff at Center City vet are fantastic. They are very quick when an appointment is needed and thorough. My cat Dexter and I have become spoiled because they take such good care of him! Thanks for everything you guys do!” — Emilee

“I have been bringing my dog to Center City Vet Hospital since they first opened. All of the staff is extremely professional and caring. I am glad to see that their business continues to grow without any effect on the quality of their service. I highly recommend taking your pet here.”

“The staff at CCVH are incredible. They go out of their way to ensure our pup is getting the best care possible. Our rescue dog has extreme separation anxiety, and he has always been available to help answer our questions, no matter what the concern. The facility is beyond bright and clean, and is by far the best vet hospital in the city.”

“The staff is so nice and the hospital is very efficient and clean.  It’s never too crowded and we’re in and out for a physical/vaccine update in about 30-40 min.  I lived around the corner when I first adopted my dog, so I went to CCVH out of convenience, but after moving across town and loving the service, I continued going.”

“The nurses are kind and caring. My dogs even like to go visit regularly. What dog do you know likes to go to the vet just to visit and say hi ??!   They have always fit my animals in, even when they are booked. Their prices are extremely reasonable, unlike other neighborhood veterinarians. ”
