A housecall veterinarian
you can depend on.
When we visit your home, you and your pet are the primary focus. Unlike typical veterinary offices with multiple patients at once, your pet is getting all the attention.
Just like humans, we need to check in to make sure your pet is doing well. This helps us to prevent commonly treatable diseases and detect any health conditions as early as possible.
From the streets of NYC to the dog park, we want to ensure your pet’s health is protected.
We offer core vaccines for dogs – Canine distemper and Parvo, Bordetella, Canine influenza, Rabies, Lyme, and Leptospirosis.
For cats we provide – safe 3-year modified live vaccines for Rabies and Feline Herpes, rhinotracheitis, and calici viruses.

NYC pets are exposed daily to gastrointestinal parasites, ticks, and mosquitos. Whether they are at daycare, dog parks, walking the streets of NYC, hiking the woods of upstate New York or frolicking the beaches of Long Island.

We can provide simple tips and recommendations on the best foods to maintain a healthy life and in special cases manage and prevent medical
We can also provide referrals to specialists if we feel your pet needs their expertise.
Like humans, pets are sentient beings. They deal with stress and different environmental stimuli in their own ways.
Understanding this is half the battle. By having a continuous relationship, we can better understand your pets typical behavior and if they require additional outside support from a veterinary behavior specialist.

NYC pets are exposed daily to gastro intestinal parasites and since we share small spaces with our pets we want to keep both you and your pet safe.
A FRESH stool sample will be needed ahead of the appointment.
Prevention is easier than a cure and annual blood screening is part of the surveillance that is needed to ensure this.
