Veterinarian Opens Wellness Center for Pets in Phila. KYW Newsradio

A first of its kind in Philadelphia — a pet rehab facility — opened this week in Queen Village.


KYW’s John McDevitt reports that at Whole Animal Gym (or “WAG”), on Second Street near South, hydrotherapy for your pet is done in a giant tank that has an underwater treadmill and jets.

Veterinarian Dr. Christina Fuoco is co-owner of WAG:

“The underwater treadmill is really helpful for post-surgical patients.  It can also be really helpful to get an arthritic patient moving better, take some of the weight off of them by providing the buoyancy with the water, get them moving better, build some muscle back up that they may have lost because they are not as active.”

Other services include laser therapy and acupuncture.

And if your pooch has packed on the pounds, there is an indoor gym with agility equipment.  And they can strap on a life vest if needed and swim in the tank.

I enjoyed very much these fifteen days in Barcelona. I met so many kind people of all around the world. I will ever remember the good time I spent in this great city. There are so many different architectures to see when walking in the streets. It’s wonderful!
