I would never go. Sick to Greater Staten Island Veterinary - no professionalism - no compassion for your animal and for what you are going through while your pet is sick. My yorkie of 5 pounds was left in a cage while being sick for 3 hours waiting to have an ultra sound and when I called to pick my dog up they said they were very busy- - I called right back to cancel and they called me back to state they started already - which was a lie- they wanted to charge me 450.00 for the ultra sound until my husband grabbed the phone from me and said we just hung up the phone there is no way you started this process and to have our dog ready that we would pick her up. They charged us 165.00 for consultation when I had all her records sent to them and I gave her all my vets info - they hadn't given me any info so what consultation was I given. Do not use them Go to Richmond Valley Vet or use Marine park vet Dr Montella who will be honest and compassionate with your animal. They are a rip off at Greater Staten Island Vet in Staten Island - the ines in NJ are better then they could ever be - Dr Susan Meeking was very unprofessional and I would never go back!FranFrom Staten Island, NY

I wouldn't even give a Star. Between the horrible woman that works there with straw hair and no endearing qualities and I would even call her a bully. The owner is cruel and heartless.. I have owned dogs my whole life and have never had an experience like this. I called over night and who ever answered said yeah she's been crying and whining non-stop ( I know they are dogs but how unprofessional is that) .. I wouldn't even go back for a check-up. I went somewhere else. Plus they are expensive and not even worth the excessive expense.

I found Dr. Lukas to be incredibly gentle, and kind with my cat, LuLu - who had cancer. She helped us keep her comfortable - and respect her dignity. She died in her sleep last night. I can't say enough about thus wonderful vet.

Dr Caban is an amazing vet and I will not take my pup anywhere else. I started taken my maltipoo puppy Gino to dr Caban about a year ago when I bought him because the dog I had before him always seen Dr Kinear who is no longer there. Dr Caban instantly made us feel comforting. He has a warm and caring demeanor & he always makes Gino feel extremely calm with him. Richmond valley veterinary practice has an asset working for them. Dr Caban is an absolutely amazing vet & I'll continue bringing Gino to visit him.

Killed my cat a few years back. He went in with a horribly blocked up urethra. They said it was nothing, twice. Finally found him dying in the litter box and peeing blood all over himself at about 12 AM. Rushed there, they did emergency surgery in which they tore his urethra. Initially the clinic admitted it to us and told us that they wouldn't charge us. A different doctor contacted us later and told us that they would charge us and that they were not responsible for the tear that eventually resulted in my cat being so sick and near death that he had to be euthanized. Now that I have completed a veterinary certification and after asking many other vets about this I can see that it was malpractice that could have been avoided. RIP little buddy.

This vet saved my puppy's life! They allow us to see her and hold her as she recovers. They always answer the phone and someone is there 24/7. They helped me with the bills as well. Everyone in the office knows how my animal is and can answer questions. During hurricane Sandy, this vet provided FREE care to many animals. They treated my friends cat out of the goodness of their hearts! It is nice to know that we have a vet we can trust.
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
