WHY CHOOSE US
Yes, we can offer all the medical services needed for your pet—but it’s really all about trust.
Both Yorktown Animal Hospital and Peekskill Cortlandt Veterinary Hospital have been recently renovated and feedback from our clients is that both are comfortable and beautiful. A great environment reduces the stress level of everyone, including our pets!
We consider ourselves a team comprised of veterinarians, technical staff, and client service representatives. We've all been chosen not only for our expertise and capabilities, but also for our personalities, our empathy, and our compassion. We want you and your pet to like us—and we think you will!
We know veterinary medicine can be expensive—although it’s still about 1/10th as expensive as human medicine for the same services. That's why we strongly recommend Pet Insurance to our pet parents to help cover the costs of medical problems. For everyday routine care, we offer a variety of great Wellness Plans.
From cold laser therapy to ultrasound, from dental radiography to ``no touch’ thermometers, we've got it covered. But technology is only a tool. It's the people working the technology that are even more important!
We’re open six days a week, and when we’re not open, we count on our friends at the Veterinary Emergency Group to see our patients for urgent and emergency care. We also partner with the veterinarians at Bedford Katonah Veterinary Center..
Yorktown Animal Hospital is the only animal hospital to have won Best Veterinary Center in Westchester by Westchester Magazine for two years in a row. We fully expect to win the award again next year for BOTH hospitals!
“All of the staff at Yorktown Animal Hospital were amazing, they took great care of a stray cat that I brought in and I would highly recommend them. Definitely 5 Star service.”

Our goal is to provide the best customer service and to answer all of your questions in a timely manner.
1. How do I make an appointment?
You can call us at the location near you, or request an appointment on our “Make An Appointment” page online and one of our team members will get back to you to confirm.
2. What is your payment policy?
Just as with every veterinary practice across the country, payment is required at the time services are performed. For major procedures such as surgeries or hospitalizations, we require a 50% deposit on the estimate provided. We take cash, all major credit cards, and offer payment plans in partnership with CareCredit, which you can apply for online at the link provided.
3. How do I get health insurance for my pet?
We highly recommend health insurance for pets and there are many companies that provide great coverage. We also offer cost-effective Wellness Plans that can help with the everyday costs of routine preventative care, while pet health insurance is usually used for major and unforeseen veterinary expenses.
Which pet insurance plan to purchase is the real question. There are plenty of choices and as we looked for a comparison, we realized that most of the websites offering comparisons were actually owned by one or another of the pet insurance companies themselves. So be careful. You might want to check out this page from Forbes Magazine that compares the various plans pretty objectively.
As for our staff, we all have pet insurance because we want our pets to be able to get that treatment. We chose Trupanion for ourselves because they’re simple to use, pay what they’re supposed to pay for (for the most part) and because they have a portal installed in most veterinary hospitals (including ours) that allows for automatic payments so you’d only have to pay out of pocket for the difference.
