partnering with families to raise healthy children


Spotlight on Harry Houdini, Therapy Dog

Harry joined the Weiss Pediatric Care family when he was just a puppy to work magic with children of all ages and their families

Whether he’s working with a 4-year-old anticipating immunizations, a toddler receiving a nebulizer treatment, or a teenager awaiting an annual well visit, Harry is proof that skilled therapy dogs can play a vital role in creating an optimal environment for health and healing.

Be sure to ask for Harry when you visit Weiss Pediatric Care. Harry is in the office Monday – Wednesday. Lucky dog is off on Thursdays and Fridays!
