Sad to say that Dr. Rastogi has passed away. I just feel the need to say that maybe his office wasn't the best looking up to date with all the fancy stuff others have. But what others don't have is the care and love that Dr. Rastogi gave to all the animals that were brought through his door. He cared about the animal first then the money. I have been taking my pets to Dr. Rastogi for 20 plus years and he always took very good care of them. He will be sadly missed by my husband and myself. It is going to be very hard to find another vet who cares like Dr. Rastogi did. RIP...You are in a better place...We love you and will miss you so much

The New Doctor, Dr. Kumar is excellent. He really cares for your pets. He is always there to answer any questions you may have, and if he doesn't answer he always calls right back. He has great prices too. I would HIGHLY recommend him.

Excellent experience, caring vet. Great part about him is that he uses generic medications to help keep cost down!!!! Prices are reasonable. Wish his hours were expandable, Saturday and Sunday hours would be awesome!!!

Dr. Kumar is one of the best veterinarians that I've encountered! He truly loves animals, and has a solid knowledge of the science. I was more than pleased with his services, and the prices are very reasonable.

I will miss Dr. Rastogi. He was an excellent surgeon and gave top care to all the animals.
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
