Pennsylvania Rabies Map

ATTENTION NORRISTOWN: Be sure to review this most recent map of current diagnosed Rabies cases from  the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture | Bureau of Animal Health and Diagnostic Services.  We also like to remind the public that the figures shown are only those of animals that have been laboratory tested.  Figures are certainly higher in the untested / undiscovered rabid animal population.  Keeping your dogs and cats up to date on their rabies vaccines is not only very important to protect them, and your family….it’s the law.  Remember, Rabies isn’t simply dangerous, it’s fatal.

Fleas and Ticks

Individualized Flea & Tick Control Programs: We develop control programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. Norristown has some unique flea and tick issues that require special attention. The staff of Trooper Vet will review with you the best ways to control fleas and ticks in your house, in your yard and on your pets. Please feel free to call or stop in if you have any questions

Dog Blood Drive!

TROOPER VETERINARY HOSPITAL is proud to host University of Pennsylvania Penn Animal Blood Bank

Held right here at Trooper Vet in Norristown on December 14th 9AM-1PM 4 to 5

Penn Animal Blood Bank is looking for volunteers for their blood donor program. The program looks to companion dogs to help save the lives of other companion dogs. Many dogs need blood to survive when they are suffering from anemia, blood disorders, rat poison ingestion and some emergency surgeries.

You may be able to help if your dog is:

•Good tempered and a willing volunteer

•Over 55 lbs.

•Between 1 and 7 years old

•Up to date on vaccines

•In excellent health

•Not taking any medication other than heartworm & flea protection

In appreciation, your dog receives a free bag or case of food. Once a dog donates, it becomes a lifetime member of the Penn Animal Blood Bank. If ever in need of a transfusion, blood is guaranteed to be available to donors, free of charge.

The Bloodmobile will be located here in our parking lot, and we are now taking appointments. Please call us to talk to our blood drive coordinator, Karen.

Congratulations to the following HERO DOGS who have joined the “Gallon Club”!
Dogs donate about one pint each time, and these dogs have each donated one gallon or MORE!!
