Welcome! Our story began in 1986 when the Magazu family first opened a tiny neighborhood veterinary clinic. Today, we offer state of the art care for dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and pocket pets in a beautiful hospital here in our hometown. We truly love every pet who comes through our doors!
Dr. Mark Magazu, DVM, grew up in an Air Force family and attended the United States Military Academy before studying Biochemical Engineering at Rutgers University. He earned his veterinary degree in Messina, Italy, and taught Radiology at Oklahoma State University. Today, Dr. Magazu loves working alongside his family each day, and he believes the Phillies and Eagles will both bring championships home to Philly!
Dr. Karen Collier, DVM, is the Chief Medical Officer of Swedesboro Animal Hospital, responsible for setting and maintaining high standards of medical care for our patients. Dr. Collier studied Biology at Tougaloo College before earning her veterinary degree at Cornell University. She is a Phillies season ticket holder, and you can always find one of her dogs snoozing under her office desk.
Dr. Melissa Worhach, DVM, joined our team in 2010, and she’s been a perfect fit ever since! She has always loved the sciences, and her lifelong adoration of animals led her to a career in veterinary medicine. A graduate of the University of Minnesota, she truly loves all aspects of working with clients to keep their pets happy and healthy.
Dr. Angela Youello, VMD, PhD, completed a B.S. in molecular biology at Harvey Mudd College, a Ph.D. in immunology at Washington University, and a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in cancer research at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She attended veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania, where she won the Abbott Animal Health/VECCS Award for Proficiency in Emergency and Critical Care.
Dr. Jen Schori, VMD, has worked at Swedesboro Animal Hospital since 2008, and she’s been in practice since 1993. She adores animals and her favorite part of veterinary medicine is getting to know her clients. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Schori is an Editor for the industry periodical Clinician’s Brief.
Our hospital regularly utilizes the industry’s most advanced technologies and techniques across a range of services:

Our precious pups rely on us for health and wellness care, just like our families do. At our hospital, we’re personally involved in your dog’s health care every step of the way. We’ll help you provide essential care through every life stage, from puppyhood through adulthood and into elder care. And to give you peace of mind, we’re always here to help your pup feel better if a medical problem arises.
Cats are beautiful, playful, lovable companions, and we can’t get enough of them! We know you love your cat as a member of your family, so we’ll help you provide essential care to keep her happy and healthy. And if your kitty gets sick, we’re always here to help her feel better. At our hospital, we’re personally involved in your cat’s health care every step of the way.
Birds, reptiles and small mammals often require special care, and Dr. Magazu offers comprehensive medical services for these special pets including wellness, diagnostic, emergency and surgery services. When you visit, ask him about his favorite African Grey parrot named Slicker and his old 5-foot long iguana named Einstein!

We love making pets look fantastic. Whether your furry friend needs a stylish cut, a hygiene shave, a soothing bath or a pedicure (yes, we do them for pets!), you’ll love the way your pet looks. There’s always smiles to go around at the Stylin’ Grooming Salon!
We are especially trained in handling pets who may not be on their best behavior while being groomed.

All campers are evaluated for behavior and manners, so you can be sure your best bud will be in a group of other friendly pets at all times.
