As much as we'd like to be there you 24/7, we're general practices, and we can't. But we want you to know where we would go if our pets got sick or had an accident in the middle of the night, or on Sunday.
You should keep this information handy, in case you need. It you're not sure you have an emergency situation try emailing one of our doctors and if we can we'll help you make the right decision.
Our veterinarians are experienced surgeons and fully capable of performing 95% of the routine surgeries presented to us.
For the other 5%, such as orthopedic or extremely complex soft tissue surgery, we call in our consulting Board Certified Surgeon, Dr Christopher Dillon. He does his work right in our hospitals, abrogating the need and the expense of going to a referral hospital.
Health and Security
We KNOW that keeping pets healthy is the biggest part of our job. It's always preferable for everyone involved to avoid problems than having to deal with (if possible). The first step in prevention is trying to keep prevention affordable. That's why we instituted our Premier Pet Plan.
The second part of this concept is having the security to be able to afford whatever nature throws at you and your pet. That's why we stress over and over again the need for Pet Insurance
We love saving and adopting out pets! We can't really do dogs, but we've got an active kitten and cat adoption program. If you're looking to adopt a dog, your first stop should be the Briarcliff SPCA and PetFinder.
No... sorry. We don't offer dog grooming. It's not because we wouldn't like to... we would. But over the years we've just had so many bad experiences with groomers that we finally gave up.
But if you're a dog groomer, well experienced, and can meet our high standards, give us a call!
They don't teach business management in veterinary school, but the way a hospital runs in integral to the way that the your pet is cared for. Making sure you're reminded when treatments are due, following up in a timely manner, short waits, and so on are just essential in making your (and your pet's) experience as perfect as can be.
Drs. Raclyn and Kasanofsky have owned five animal hospitals and know how a hospital needs to be run. It all starts with hiring the right people, and we know we've done that.
At our practice in Yorktown, we offer full boarding services. We have a lovely backyard with outdoor runs. Short and long term options available.
At the Peekskill-Cortlandt location, we were unable to obtain the necessary permits for boarding. Perhaps one day soon...
USDA Travel Certifications
If you’re going to be traveling internationally or across state lines and plan to take your pet with you, it’s important to be aware of exactly what will be required for your animal companion to make the trip. It’s also a good idea to make sure your pet is physically healthy enough for travel.
Dr. Andrew Weisenfeld, DVM is certified to provide International USDA Travel Certifications and can assist you in getting your pet ready for your trip, including assessing whether they’re healthy enough for travel—especially the rigors of an airline flight.
International travel for pets requires international health certificates—and some countries require proof of additional vaccinations and testing. We will be happy to assist you with acquiring the appropriate certificates and other steps after you’ve figured out exactly what you need for your trip. You can do this by visiting the Animal Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) page from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). While the certificate must be prepared by a USDA-accredited veterinarian, the requirements for entry are established by each individual country.
