Why choose us

Yes, We Can Offer all the Services Needed... but It's Really All About Trust.

Modern Hospitals

Both Yorktown Animal Hospital and Peekskill Cortlandt Veterinary Hospital have been recently renovated and, if we may say this... are comfortable and beautiful. A great environment reduces the stress level of everyone, including our pets!

Expert Team

We're a team, compromised 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 to like us... and you will.

Reasonable Costs

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 help cover the costs of medical problems. And for those everyday costs of having a pet, we offer a variety of great Wellness Plans.

Award winning

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. No other hospital has ever won the award more than once. We fully expect to win the award again next year for BOTH hospitals!

Modern Technology

From Cold Laser 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's even more important!

Almost Always Open

We’re open six days a week. When we’re not here we count on our friends at the Veterinary Emergency Group to see our patients. We also partner with the veterinarians at Bedford Katonah Veterinary Center.

Got questions?

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?

For right now, we can only offer the option of calling us to make an appointment. In the very near future, we’ll be offering the option of making appointments directly from this website.

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.   If cash flow is tight, we offer CareCredit

3. Can I get health insurance for my pet?

Yes, by all means!  We strongly recommend pet insurance so you’re never constrained to compromise on veterinary care due to finances. We also offer a wonderful VIP Wellness Plan so you can also reduce the everyday costs of being a pet owner!

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.

We did find this one website that looks at most plans pretty objectively. The website is

We all have pet insurance on our own pets, because if any one of our pets needs ANYTHING, from a routine injury to brain surgery, 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.
