Comprehensive Veterinary Medical Services

We offer an extensive range of veterinary services to our clients and their pets. As residents and pet owners living on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, our veterinarians are keenly aware and pay particular attention to local disease prevention and wellness care.

Your pet's preventive care begins with a comprehensive "nose-to-tail" physical examination. Not only can we detect a problem or medical condition during an examination, but this gives us a baseline to measure against should your beloved pet become ill in the future. We use a personalized approach to high quality pet care based on you and your pet's lifestyle. In addition to general wellness examinations and vaccinations, our hospital offers the latest advancements in internal medicine, surgery, dental care and diagnostics. To provide even greater access to superior veterinary care, our veterinarians work closely with New York City veterinary specialists should your pet require more specialized treatments or procedures. This provides even greater convenience as you do not need to leave our Upper East Side veterinary facility to seek advanced care.
