I have been going to this vet for 43 yrs that is right,43 yrs and now I found out Dr.Rude sold his practice to a vet who is not going to practice there but his son is going to run the place and the cats that have been there for 18 yrs are to be euthanized.That is right a vet who is supposed to show compassion should not be euthanizing cats that only have maybe a 1 or 2 to live.This vet said that the cats are liability that someone could trip.I said well someone could slip in dog pee because that dog is not inside a crate.Dr Rude did not care about the cats living out the rest of their lives at the vet office and the Vet Assistant is more interested in her raise and promotion.If these cats are not shown compassion how can I expect you to show my cat or pet compassion,they can't Shame on Dr Rude for not insisting these poor cats be treated with compassion especially a vet's office.I am not going back there

I have been taken my animals to Dr. Rude for years. Not only have they received EXCELLENT CARE, but staff have gone above and beyond to make sure that their care is great. I would NEVER fear to bring them to the excellent pet health care center.

Dr. Norton killed my cat! Don't let this happen to you.....
My cat had been recently diagnosed with diabetes. I was told to take him to a private vet who could do a glucose curve. I called Dr. Rude's on Frankford Ave and spoke with Dr. Norton.
She explained she didn't do full glucose curves because she found they weren't necessary ( a glucose curve is a 12 to 24 hour test, comprised of drawing blood before and after meals to follow glucose levels and then prescribe the insulin dosage), she did a limited testing. My husband brought the cat to her office for his appointment where his urine was tested (but not his blood). He was prescribed insulin which he was given after his meals. The first 2 days he seemed to be doing better, but by Sunday he was dead from hypoglycemia.
Dr. Norton tried to blame his death on the insulin, it being new to the market, etc.....the fact remains that she NEVER drew blood and got a glucose level before prescribing an insulin dose.
If your pet is diagnosed with diabetes PLEASE be sure the vet you are using is capable of dealing with the disease. We didn't even have enough time to educate ourselves about the disease before we lost our companion......

Excellent Doc and Hospital! This hospital is so warm and caring. Dr. Norton is fantastic. She has performed the most delicate surgery on one of our cats. Dr. Rude's Hospital is an institution in the neighborhood. I really depend on them and they've always met our needs.

We have been been away for a while, but were overjoyed to hear that Dr. Norton was back. As one of the few vets in the area, it is nice to see that an experienced emergency doctor was willing to work in the neighborhood. I hear she even own shepards and rottweilers herself. The hospital can be busy, so I would recommend getting an appointment.

Dr. Rude has been in business at the same location for a very long time. He enjoys an excellent reputation as a vet. My only problem with him is that he is extremely expensive. The area he works in (Kensington) has veryt few vets, and the low income people can't afford his prices.

PROS: Great, professional vet.
CONS: Too expensive.

I have been to this hospital 3 times and have had a good experience on each occasion. The staff is friendly and the vets are very helpful. The only drawback I've found is you may encounter a long wait to be seen.
