Serving Dutchess County, NY & surrounding area

COVID update **owners of current patients: please inquire about telehealth options** In the absence of a veterinary-client-patient relationship (VCPR), we cannot prescribe medications or make diagnoses based on video consult (VCPR requires a recent physical exam, you can read more about VCPR in this link).

Wellness exams, grooming, and routine laboratory test services are available. Non-urgent problem exams are seen on a case-by-case basis. We have commonly used medications in stock to dispense at your pet’s appointment, and others not in stock can be specially ordered.

Many diseases are best diagnosed and treated in a veterinary clinic setting. Animals that are ill may require intensive care that cannot be provided on an out-patient/house call basis.  Additionally, any disease that requires radiographs (X-rays) or ultrasound for diagnosis will be best addressed at a veterinary clinic.

This is not an emergency or urgent care service. If your pet is sick, please contact your local exotics animal hospital (see links page).
