The next time you bring Fido or Miss Kitty to a popular veterinarian’s office, there’s a good chance they may be treated by an unfamiliar but friendly face.
“Starting on Monday, Trooper Veterinary Hospital is pleased to welcome Dr. Seth L. Cohen to our staff of veterinarians,” noted Hospital Administrator Wendy Uba.
A Bucks County native, Cohen earned his doctorate in 2006 from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine and has worked in emergency and referral medicine, as well as in a small private animal practice in Minnesota.
In addition to general and internal medicine, Cohen has a particular interest in gastrointestinal and renal diseases, as well as neurology, Uba said.
“We welcome Dr. Cohen back to the Philly area, along with his wife, Dr. Bobowski, and their dog and two cats. Dr. Cohen looks forward to seeing patients and pet parents at Trooper Veterinary Hospital.”
Joining a staff of veterinarians that includes owner Dr. Michael Herman, Dr. Dawn Goldacker, Dr. Susan Wich, Dr. Tara-Jean Cleary and Dr. Danielle Reinhardt, Cohen fills the void left by Dr. Ron Kraft, who founded the practice in 1963 with Dr. Max Herman and retired two years ago.
Coincidentally, Cohen comes on board at a time when the animal hospital is celebrating a pair of milestones.
In addition to a golden anniversary, 2014 marks the 10th year since Trooper Veterinary Hospital moved into the gleaming new facility built on the property where the original office was located.
In 2004, Kraft noted the building was specifically designed to enhance furry segregation, starting in the waiting area and continuing with the exam rooms and lodging.
“You have two different species you’re dealing with, and it’s an issue that has always concerned us,” he said. “Dogs tend to be much more gregarious than cats, and if we can make a cat’s visit a little more pleasant by keeping him away from a barking dog, we definitely wanted to do that.”
Dogs have their issues with felines as well, he had pointed out.
“A meowing cat might annoy a dog and get him to barking more and make both the dog and cat more anxious,” Kraft explained. “We felt this was very important to further put the animals and our clients at ease. We’re so happy in our new home, and our clients seem to feel the same way.”
