Bree's Animal Hospital
My 4 cats have been patients of Dr Bree's for over 4 years....It was always routine visits until last December when I took my 10 year old cat Sandy in for what I thought was a small issue...Dr Marc found a mass and she was taken in on Monday for surgery...Dr Marc called me personally after the surgery and they encouraged me to visit with my "baby" during her 2 day hospital stay. I was kept informed and Dr Marc went over every aspect of her illness, and surgery and subsequent treatments.....Although we had hoped for the best, her biopsy came back as an aggressive form of lymphoma....Dr Marc took the time to research the best treatment for her and together we came up with a plan that worked for Sandy. For a month I was in the office 3 days a week for treatments and after treatments the staff would call me and inquire as to how Sandy was doing....I didn't just leave the office and was forgotten - they cared and made it known we were not just a number to them. I am now in the office twice a week and I cannot say enough good things about this kind, caring facility. In the four years I have been going there, I have never seen a cleaner animal hospital. When I dropped my cat off for surgery at 7am the girl at the desk was disinfecting and when I was visiting at night after office hours the staff was cleaning and mopping and disinfecting! Spotless would be an accurate description! I would never trust anyone but Dr Marc or Dr Roblejo to take care of my babies....

Its wonderful to know that there are still people out there who actually care and want to help. Its not about the money, its about giving back. At the time we came to Dutton Rd. Veterinary Clinic, we had 5 animals, 3 dogs and 2 cats, so you can imagine what our vet bills were like. Not that our previous vet didnt care about animals, they did, but we just couldnt afford to keep taking them there. They charged us for every little thing and it got to the point where we were forced to switch. We are so lucky to have found Dutton Rd. The fact that they are also a Greyhound Rescue, just shows you the dedication and compassion they have for animals, they are about helping, not about the money. We couldn't believe how affordable it was to take ALL of our animals there, besides the amazing care that was given. The staff is great and any questions or concerns are always welcome and answered.

Sadly, I recently lost my cat Timmy to liver cancer. The staff at Bree's were so compassionate and caring. We took him in because he was listless, not eating and vomiting even when he tried to drink water. Dr. Robejo did everything he could to keep Timmy comfortable. On the day that we had to euthanize Timmy, Dr. Robejo was in constant contact with me until my husband came home after work and we could go over to say goodbye. Dr. Robejo was honest and understanding; he provided high quality care ( IV, x-ray, etc.) without giving us false hope. I will always be grateful to Dr. Robejo, Eileen, Leanne and everyone else whose names I did not learn. I am fortunate to have such a great vet right around the corner.

When I couldnt afford the recommended care for my cat my vet didnt give me any care at all. The next vet I spoke to did the same. A vet nurse directed me to dutton. Where I got care for my cat. I was not turned away because I couldnt afford recommended testing. I got the care I could afford and got 5 extra months with my furry friend. Otherwise I would have had to put him down just because of money. My animals go to dutton. Thier compassion and understanding is priceless. Recently that cats brother got sick and a doctor there saved his life by prescribing the medicine he needed to get well. The facility is also very clean. I have to travel a distance to get there but its all worth it.

Some of these reviews have simply got to be made up. I've been going there for almost a decade. I've moved to S. Jersey and STILL take my pets there. I board my pets there when I go on vacation. I wouldn't trust their lives to anyone else. Over the years, my numerous dogs and one cat have had various surgeries, and one received ongoing chemo treatments there. Everyone in that office loves my pets as much as I do and my pets love them too. I would recommend them to anyone and will never trust my beloved pets to any other vet.

Dr Pickard has been our vet for over 9 years. Since we are seniors and do not drive, the fact that he makes house call and his prices were a BIG PLUS to us! He was wonderful when our cat developed cancer and stood by us and came when called ASAP. He was wonderful in handling Purrcy's care in his last days. WE now have a new kitten and Dr Pichard is giving her her shots. We hope to have Roxie as long as Purrcy and DR Tom to take care of her.

They care about the animals and know what they are doing! More importantly, in terms of vet costs, they are helping the animal population have loving homes by making their vet fees affordable. Many people, including some of my own family members, will not adopt a deserving pet because they simply cannot afford the astronomical vet costs these days! The doctors at this facility are excellent, as well as their staff! Highly recommended!

I absolutely love all of the staff at Bree's Animal Hospital. My father took our pets there when I was a child and I continue to take all of my animals there as an adult. Unfortunately not every experience turns out with your pet being okay but the care is always exceptional! I have the utmost confidence that my animals receive the best vetinary care while there and I know for a fact they are loved! I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Dr. Pickard is the best of the best. On Saturday, we had to send our beloved lab, Snickers, over the Rainbow Bridge. Dr. Pickard made his passing so peaceful and gentle. The doctor is a gentle soul and will settle for nothing less when it comes to his furry patients and their human parents. Thank you Doctor, for making such a heartbreaking moment so serene. Barb, Jack and Shadow.

Our companion Sweetie has not been herself lately, and we were very concerned. I called Dr. Pickard yesterday, and he was here today to tend to her and to give us an idea of what steps to take to get her back to health. He was so comforting, competent and knowledgeable - Sweetie took to him right away and we have found our new vet!
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
