Newark Vet Hospital
I had a great experience at the Newark Vet Hospital.This is my first pet so I don't have a lot of experience going to a vet. I've only been once before going here. The other place was packed with anxious cats and dogs. There was pee on the floor and loud barking dogs. My cat, was so scared he also peed. Based on that experience I was nervous about going to a vet again, but I knew my cat needed it. I was immediately put at ease when I walked into this hospital. It was clean, calm and only two other people in the lobby when I came in. I was a walk in, but they made sure I was always aware of how long the wait would be and saw me really quickly. I even heard someone else comment that his dog has never been so at ease with a stranger. I knew I came to the right place.The staff were all extremely friendly and professional as well. I had no idea what was wrong with my cat so I was really nervous and on the edge of tears. They were really comforting and calm with my cat and let me know exactly what my options were and what the plan would be. Highly recommend this place

We are new to the area and were very concerned about finding a reliable and reasonably priced vet for our three dogs and two cats. We are very lucky that we found this veterinary clinic, Dr Yablon is a phenomenal vet. Even though the office was filled with owners and their pets and it was obviously a very busy day. he still spent time with each and every one of us to go over all our questions and concerns with our pets. He is very knowledgeable. Our dog required a six inch incision on his side to remove a tumor; the incision was flawlessly stitched and our dog returned as if he didn't feel a thing. I highly recommend this veterinary clinic!!

I love this place. They treat pets like family. There prices make owning a pet affordable. I never have never felt like a client, nor has Pluto, we are family here.
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
