Because we can never have to many smiles on our team we just had to add Dr. Angela Cooper-Carty. Dr. Carty has worked with us off and on over the past two years as a relief doctor so when her scheduled allowed her to join PHC on a more permanent part-time basis we jumped on the opportunity. Like most of us her love for animals started at an early age. "I feel lucky to be in the position to full-fill a childhood dream," she explains. "To know from an early age this is what I wanted to do and to work hard to achieve my goal makes me feel very blessed." She graduated from Howard University in 1989 then later on received her Doctor of Veterinary medicine degree from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. After completing a Small Animal Internship at Tuskegee University, she practiced in Ohio for a few years. She has practiced veterinary medicine in and around Philadelphia since moving here with her family in 1999. Her special interests are internal and preventive medicine along with being the only Zeuterin Certified doctor in Philadelphia. Through this procedure she is able to inject a drug into a male dog's testicles that reduces the testosterone level low enough that the do is not producing viable sperm meaning he cannot impregnate a female in heat. Extremely safe and just as effective as surgery, but not nearly as expensive. She would be glad to discuss the procedure with any of our interested clients. Now a Philly native she loves working in a community that cares so much about their animals. When not in the office she is an active mother of 2 wonderful children and can be found in the Zumba gym, listenign to music, cooking and traveling anyplace where the sunshines. Her fur family consists of two dogs, Sparky, a Shih Tzu mix, and Bindi, a Golden mix.
