Medical Genetics & Pediatrics

Medical Genetics focuses on the study of hereditary diseases of companion animals to better understand the disease processes, and to develop new treatments.

Our medical geneticists evaluate companion animals of all ages with suspected or confirmed genetic diseases. If we diagnose a genetic disorder in your pet, our veterinarians will offer you the best management options for your situation.

Our pediatricians are here to provide your puppy or kitten with all of the preventive programs, such as vaccinations, parasite control, nutritional advice, and other counseling, so that your pet gets off to a great start in life.

  • Medical Genetics

    Our medical geneticists are dedicated to diagnosing and better understanding inherited diseases and genetic predispositions in companion animals — both pediatric and adult. This knowledge helps us better understand how diseases work in order to make better breeding decisions, and understand how to manage and control these disorders in future generations.

  • Small Animal Pediatrics

    Our pediatricians not only provide preventive health care such as vaccinations, but can also diagnose and treat disorders that are unique to puppies and kittens. Fading puppy or kitten syndrome? Growth abnormalities? Or just not doing well? Please see our pediatricians right away.

  • PennGen & Diagnostic Services

    PennGen is a genetic testing facility operated through the Section of Medical Genetics at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Veterinary Medicine.
