Support Your Best Friend At The Vet

What is an Open Hospital? Well, Adobe Animal Hospital was founded and built around the concept of the Open Hospital and in basic terms it means that want you to be part of your pet’s medical care.  You will be able to be with and support your pet while many medical treatments are being performed.  We are proud of our team, our medicine and our relationship with you and your pet.

But, I’m sure our team can explain it better…..

“The Open Hospital allows us to work as a team with the owner to decide what is going to be best for the pet.  Owners are there to see what treatments we are doing and how the pet is responding to them.  Together we work to make the pet as comfortable as possible while getting them the best care possible. After working with clients in this way, I couldn’t imagine working at a hospital that doesn’t offer this!

As the owner of one German Shepherd and two cats, I love the open hospital aspect!  I see the hard work that the medical team puts into the treatment of my pets and how much they care for them!  Also, in the few times my pets have had reactions to things, I was able to see what happened, how fast everybody reacted to make sure they were okay all the while explaining everything to me.  You will definitely see value for what you pay for here!  Now, even if I can’t be there, I know they are in good hands.”

“An Open Hospital to me means a place where clients can be with their pets during a treatment or procedure. This often helps the pet be less scared and allows the owner to be a part of the process.”

~ Jennifer Koga, DVM, Hospital Owner

“Cusco got into the trash last month and I had to take him to the local emergency vet here in Pittsburgh.  They wouldn’t let me be involved with any treatments and whisked him away for 2 hours to do xrays and emesis.  I cried as soon as he left me and I was so nervous.  It was the first time in 20 years my pet was taken from me and I imagine how hard it must be for clients especially in critical emergency situations.  I am so so proud to be part of an open hospital policy and truly believe it is the best for everyone.”

“I can not imagine working in a non open hospital. That seems very foreign to me. Love this place and all we do for our patients and the clients.”
