Yonkers Animal Hospital
We started going to Dr. Howell when he first opened. Three cockers and two German Sheppards later, we are still with him. The latest cocker we rescued from a local helter and he had, among other things, one of the most raveging ear infections ever encountered. Both ears literally stunk and were full of fluids. We never winced on keeping the dog because we had such great trust in Dr. Howell. For those that know dog breeds and diseases, our new cocker had Pseudomonas Aeruginosa which is a terribly difficult ear infection to treat and cure. The bacteria changes all the time and it is persistent. Dr. Howell did extensive reading, research, and outreach to other ear professionals and he personally devised several different treatments of ear drops and anti-biotics. After a few weeks, we began to see progress and we are finally on top of the problem. It is such a relief to be able to rescue a dog and bring it back to full health.

People think that we were brave to take on a sick dog but, in all honesty, if we did not have the confidence and trust in Dr. Howell from years of experience with him and him facility, it would not have been possible for us to keep this dog. He literally saved our dog's life and that is priceless. Whatever Vet was treating this dog before just gave up or failed to find the right treatment. But Dr. Howell used all of him knowledge and skill to search out the best treatment and not rely on guesswork. Another thing is that him office staff are always wearing big smiles and professional. The Hospital is always clean and smells good. It has all the right equipment and medications in addtion to a complete medical staff in the back to perform deep ear cleanings, teeth cleanings, ear cultures, blood tests, etc. without inordinate delays in results

My cat, Cliff has been coming to the hospital since he was a kitten. I always had a pleasant experience with every person in the office until recently i only had to bring Cliff in for shots and nail clips. Last week, Cliff's ear swelled up and I called the office asking to come in for an appointment because I thought he had an ear infection. I called and the young lady on the phone advised me I should come as soon as possible because it did not sound like an ear infection to her. Turns out Cliff had a hematoma and needed surgery to drain the blood that pooled in his ear. The surgery was reasonanly priced and Cliff was home two days later. Cliff is now doing fine and had it not been for the girl on the phone urging me to come in, cliff would not have gotten the treatment he needed as fast as he did.

I am a new client at Yonkers and a new pet owner as well. I just recently adopted a lab puppy and had no clue about anything. After calling the hospital to make an appointment the girl on the phone gave me the info I needed to get started. Then, once I actually went to the appointment, I felt instantly at home in the warm and friendly atmosphere of the office. The people in the waiting room talk to each other and swap stories while they wait for their appointment. The office staff has conversations with regular clients and really seem like they have taken the time to truly make this place feel like you are part of the family. The doctor who did the exam was patient with my questions and really gave me some helpful tips on raising a well-rounded puppy.

Dr. Givan & Dr. Howell saved my Cat's life (& prior to that my Ex & his family had been going to Yonkers Animal Hospital for at least 15 years dealing with Dr. Howell directly & they loved him). My cat had a 6 inch mass in her intestines & cancer in her lymph nodes. Dr. Gavin performed the surgery & Dr. Howell followed up. They gave me advice to seek out chemo or holistic or any route I chose. They did not push me into anything. My cat is still alive & well even though she is no longer a patient of Yonkers Animal Hospital. Had they not performed the life saving surgery & cared for her post surgery & made the proper medical recommendations she would not be here at the ripe old age of 17!

The vets here have always been straightforward, thoughtful (they even sent me a card and both vets called separately to given their condolences when my Siberian Husky passed away) and they don't nickel and dime you. The Jersey vet that I've been seeing barely has time to go over things and we have to pay for everything including what little time you get of the vets and incredibly for medical disposal for the shots that they gave my dog... are you freaking kidding me? Anyways, after a few months of this we've decided as much as a hassle that it may be I'll take the hour drive and pack my two dogs and cat for joint vet visits back at Yonkers Animal Hospital.

We moved here from the Bay Area two years ago with an elderly grumpy rescue cat. They were very caring and did get her history from our old vet so not too many tests. So when we moved with Winifred the Cardigan Welsh Corgi rescue I naturally needed a new vet in a new city and I found Yonkers Animal Hospital. They have been so wonderful with her. I can't say enough about their empathy for the animals (not so much my wallet, but they did work with me after her recent surgery) These aren't just beasts, they are members of our families so I have to say it's worth the money when they are so dedicated to the care of your furkid. I recommend and trust them totally.

My dog's health is my top priority so if it takes time to wait and I have the ability to get in when I have to, then my time is something I'm more than willing to sacrifice. It's true the office could use a sprucing up, but I prefer the fact that they are clearly in this for patient care #1 and not overcharging in order to pay for a Ritz like office. I've searched the Internet for pet medications and have found the prices comparable to those Yonkers Animal Hospital charges. So prepare for a long wait, have no fear of overcharging, and enjoy patient care second to none at Yonkers Animal Hospital.

Dr. Howell was so knowledgable. Was very satisfied with my first visit with my dog. He really cares and pays close attention to each animal he examines. However, the two young receptionists were very rude and laughed in my face when they offered me the option to pay my full bill on Friday when I get paid. People should respect that not everyone is a thief. I did not want to see my dog suffer until Friday when I could afford it, it's not fair to him to be in pain. This was explained on the phone when the appointment was made . Really showed a lack of professionalism to a really great doctor.

This day and age it's super hard to please everyone with the cost of doing business constantly looming over head, but I can tell you when the doctors and their assistants have seen my pets they've always treated them with utmost care and concern. Care is the rare commodity here and you really can't place a price on it. I highly recommend this place, if you can actually find something better, you're quite lucky and maybe a better researcher than I am. Dr. Howell has been my favorite, by the way, and the one assistant I spoke to has her own dog, and personal experience counts just as much.
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
