Gotham Animal Clinic
A superior vet.His little clinic has succeeded for over 20 years because Dr. Weiner has such a loyal clientele.We all know veterinary care can be expensive.So the money must be spent wisely.Dr.Weiner doesn't pad bills with unnecessary testing or b.s. supplements.If he suggests a test it's because he truly believes it will be of diagnostic value.And he will use the results to offer sensible options that,in the long run,could save you a bundle on wasteful surgeries or other pricey treatments.He is a highly experienced,highly skilled animal physician with common sense.And he runs an honest business.He is as good as it gets,particularly in this city.I thank you Dr. Weiner for the outstanding care you've given my pets for nearly 20 years.I consider myself and my beloved pets extremely fortunate to reside just a few blocks away from Gotham Animal Clinic.

BluePearl Veterinary Partners
Dr. Williams in neurology took great care of our puggle who came in because he had trouble walking and was in severe pain. Turned out after doing an MRI he had a herniated disc in his spine due to IVDD (degenerative disc disease common in beagles). He is 2 weeks post surgery and able to walk again. Most of the staff was very friendly and helpful. Yes you are going to pay a pretty penny, especially if you don't have pet insurance, for most visits at Blue Pearl but they came highly recommended from both my vet and friends. Dr. Levitin, the head neurologist, also is wonderful. If you need to see one of these doctors, you will be in good hands.

Westside Animal Hospital
I have gone to many vets in many different places in the country, including AZ, IA, and NYC. The staff at Westside Animal Hospital is very friendly, personable, and always welcomes my pets. They know us all by name! This is especially important because my dog is very anxious, and many vets have been frightened or judgmental of him. Dr. Perez always allows me to help hold him, and is calm when working with him. The care is always great. We've been clients there for 5 years, and continue to return there, even though we've moved far out of the neighborhood. We love this vet!EditDelete

New York Cat Hospital
BEST VET EVER! Dr. Soboroff is simply the most kind, calm, competent and caring of vets. He's very cautious and conservative before he puts your cat through any expensive tests. He always invites you into the conversation about your cats care and gives you a good idea of the options and what they will cost before care is given. He and his staff are honest people who have gone the extra mile for me and my cats more times than I can count. He's handwritten note after my cat Frances was put to sleep was touching and heart felt. Dr. Soboroff is simply the best vet ever.

Reade Street Animal Hospital
I am kind of know as the cavalier guy of Tribeca, over the years I have had many. Dr Xanthos is very knowledgeable and was really pleased to work with me, appreciative of thy knowledge of the breed. With my two new pups we were very much on the same wavelength about over vaccinating. My dogs are not scared of going to the vet, I think they think it is Dudley's paw. All the staff know the dogs names- i know they have pulled up the records but it makes a difference. Willie thinks he works there. I highly recommend the place & staff

Cathedral Dog & Cat Hospital
I love Dr. Fierman and Sylvia. They are caring people who truly love animals and want the best for them. When I call and leave a message, the response is quick; it's not a hassle to set up appointments and if you have to wait a bit, there are always treats for the dog. Of all the vets we have been to, Dr. Fierman is the most thorough, caring and most reasonable with fees. He does not order unnecessary tests as that has been my experience in the past.

Clinton Veterinary Center
Dr. Fische is knowledgeable, compassionate, and takes all the time needed to care for my pet. The staff are always warm and welcoming. I have already told friends that they should start coming here. The office was very easy to locate. I can always secure an appointment and, in emergencies, Dr. Fische has gone out of his way to take care of my pet.

West Village Veterinary Hospital
My dog and I travel overseas to various locations and each time a different passport has been required. The front desk team has always been amazing in navigating through this very detailed and multi-step process as well as doing everything possible to ease the stress and burden on me.

Clinton Veterinary Center
5.0 /5The Best vet in the city! My cat isn't the best patient but Dr. Fisch is great with him. He is extremely intuitive in his work and helped my cat get better quickly when he was sick. The staff at Clinton Vet are so helpful and caring. I would highly recommend Dr. Fisch!

Animal Hospital Of Chelsea
Took good care of my wild, feral rescue cat and she was WILD (much better now with lots of TLC). Frequent updates by phone kept me informed during the days she spent there. Thank you Dr. Klain and staff!
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
