PHILADELPHIA, August 28, 2018 (Newswire.com) – Art City Vets Animal Hospital is now open and available for general, sick, emergency and urgent care visits! The new facility, located at 2001 Hamilton Street Condo Unit 1, opened its doors to clients today, August 28 and plans to announce a grand opening party in the near future.
Art City Vets defines themselves as a forward-thinking animal hospital, committed to the development and practice of innovative veterinary medicine. Each of their patients is treated on an individual basis with their unique needs in mind, as they will proudly see dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents and other exotic pets.
The hospital is bringing new offerings to the city with their Sick, Emergency and Urgent Care services in addition to General Practice appointments. All veterinary equipment was acquired after extensive research by Dr. Aller to ensure the best diagnostic care for all types of pets. Art City Vets boasts a full in-house laboratory, pharmacy, both digital x-ray and digital dental x-ray, top of the line anaesthetic monitoring, routine and involved surgery, laser therapy, and more.
Art City Vets is owned and operated by Philadelphia resident, Dr. Edward Aller. Following graduation from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Aller began his veterinary career, first at a South Jersey animal hospital treating a wide variety of animals and then for the past four years at a large 24-Hour Emergency & Speciality Care facility in Mount Laurel, NJ. Working at the speciality facility gave Dr. Aller the added experience of seeing a large variety of emergency cases, as well as learning from top specialists. His love of emergency, exotic, and general practice inspired him to take his career to the next level with the creation of Art City Vets.
The vision to start Art City Vets began from his desire to combine the level of medicine expected from a speciality/referral centre with the warm, friendly feeling of a small convenient neighbourhood veterinarian. He says, “being a member of this local community, I want to provide its residents with a compassionate and thorough experience for every pet that comes through my door. I feel that this community deserves that type of hands-on, individualised care that puts the pet’s experience first.”
“Beyond the beautiful new décor and modern features of the new hospital, the way in which it will enhance patient care is perhaps the most meaningful part of this project,” says Carolyn Baals, the hospital’s Client Services Manager. “We are creating a commitment to our community, and emphasise that the patient is truly at the centre of everything we do.”
Art City Vets believes strongly in giving back to the community, offering discounts and incentives to 501c3 rescue groups, taking part in neighbourhood events and supporting the efforts of local animal shelters.
The hospital is currently accepting new patients and is offering a $25 discount off of a pet’s first exam fee with code ACVPR.
