Washington Ave Animal Hospital is strategically located in the heart of Philadelphia between Graduate Hospital and Point Breeze, two rapidly growing neighborhoods. We see wellness appointments, sick appointments, and urgent care visits 7 days a week, 8am-8pm. We perform dental procedures and open body surgeries Monday through Friday.
