Local Medical Issues

We ask our clients to bring in a fecal sample to each wellness exam. Testing twice per year provides us with the best chance of detecting any parasites. We test for heartworm yearly. Heartworm is transmitted by mosquitoes and with the winter temperatures the way they are, it is not cold enough to kill mosquito eggs. Heartworm is a year-round risk. We recommend year-round preventative medication. We also focus on flea and tick control since many health issues are caused by these

Marie Mifflin from Philadelphia

I was seen by Dr. Lee in September with my 5 month old Belgian Shepard (Nana) who has an incredible flea problem. Not only did Dr. Lee treat Nana for fleas & provided medicine for Nana to relieve her from itching & scratching herself raw, but he also provided me additional knowledge for example (benadryl for itching) but also what to use in my backyard for fleas !! Dr. Lee is a very intelligent and caring individual as well as an incredible asset to your practice. He was very gentle with Nana especially since Nana is a little anti-social (hahaha).

Do to my work hours I can only get to make an appointment anytime after 3:30pm. After my experience with Dr.Lee, I will only have my girls be seen by him...I just had my dog Guinness there for the same problem & she was also seen by Dr. Lee !! Once again he was very gentle with Guinness who is 13 years old. I guess I'm really trying to say is that I'm so glad that he has started down his road of helping animals with your practice & I hope he remains there for many, many years to come.

Also the girls at the counter are all so friendly and always so glad to see you when you walk in the door !! I like the fact that the women do not ignore "my girls" when I have to bring them in. It makes them more at ease being at the doctor's & makes me at ease knowing that the women truly care about what they do.

Thank you for your time,
Marie Mifflin
