Onsite & Online
We are here to help you refill prescriptions with our onsite or online pharmacy, see below for links to both.
Did you know that our online pharmacy, Vets First Choice, is cost-effective and convenient? We also only source medication from trusted suppliers, unlike other online pharmacies. There have been more cases of counterfeit medications or medications sourced from unknown realtors when purchased from online pharmacies that source their retail from third party vendors. Give your pet medication from a safe and trusted online source like Vet First Choice or directly from Pennsauken Animal Hospital.

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease that can be expensive and dangerous to treat. It is caused by worms that can grow up to a foot in length and live within the heart, lungs, and associated blood vessels of its host.
The preferred host is the dog, but this disease can also affect cats. This disease is transmitted from one dog to another by a mosquito biting a heartworm positive dog and transmitting the microscopic immature worms to the next dog it bites. The risk of heartworm disease in this area continues to increase every year as climate changes occur and people continue to transport dogs to this area from endemic areas.
All dogs over 7 months of age should be tested annually as it takes 6 months for heartworms to mature to adulthood where they will trigger a positive test. Heartworm preventatives work by killing off immature or larval stages of the worms. Late or missed doses can allow larval stages to mature into adulthood where the preventative will not be effective in eliminating the disease. You then have an extensive and costly treatment plan recommended to kill the heartworms.
Roundworm & Hookworm
Roundworm and Hookworm are common gut parasites in dogs and cats, and are easily transmitted directly from ingestion of eggs, but also from ingestion of other animals (like flies). Roundworm can cause inflammation in the gut, causing issues like diarrhea or vomiting. Roundworm eggs shed by dogs and cats are infectious to humans.
Whipworm is a frustrating gut parasite that can commonly cause disease in mature dogs (ie not just puppies). They are difficult to diagnose as eggs are only shed a few days a month. Many dogs are asymptomatic but can shed eggs and infect other dogs. Clinically affected dogs have severe intermittent diarrhea.
Tapeworm in our area are typically Dipylidium caninum, which is spread via the ingestion of fleas. As all dogs and cats (even indoor only!) have some amount of flea exposure, tapeworms can be an inevitable part of living in our area. Sentinel Spectrum kills all tapeworm present in the dog, meaning clinically relevant infections will not occur. Prevalence in the region is estimated to be at least 4% in dogs and cats, but some estimates are higher (as high as 50%).
