If you have any fun or interesting animal/pet photos please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say what neighborhood you’re from or upload to the PoPville flickr pool with your pets name and neighborhood. I can’t guarantee I’ll get them all posted but I’ll do my best.

After the jump animal hospital request.

“Dear PoPville,

You featured my cat, PHawk, on the blog over the summer. We were thrilled! Unfortunately, PHawk has developed a very painful skin disease that the vets have been unable to diagnose. After numerous vet visits and medications, she is worsening. Several vets have suggested that she needs to have a biopsy and tests run. Unfortunately, this is very expensive and I am a student. Do you happen to know of any low cost animal hospitals in the DC area?”

We have some veterinarian recs here but does anyone have modestly priced suggestions? I’ve heard Petworth Animal Hospital is reasonable at 4012 Georgia Ave NW.
