“The best therapist has fur and four legs”


General Surgery

Our team has over 30 years of combined surgery experience. We will carefully screen your pet prior to surgery to make sure that your pet is healthy for anesthesia. We’ll also take into account their breed, age, previous medical history, and the procedure being performed.

Most surgeries are done as outpatient procedures, so you’ll be able to bring your pet home late afternoon/early evening. If your pet needs to stay overnight, our boarding facilities will keep them comfortable during their recovery.



Dental problems aren’t just a human issue. In fact, 80% of dogs and cats over the age of 3 suffer from some form of dental disease. That’s why it’s so important to bring your pet in for dental checkups at least once a year.

Here are some things to look for that may be a sign of dental disease:

  • Bad breath

  • Stained yellow or brown teeth

  • Loose teeth

  • Red, swollen, or inflamed gums

  • Swollen mouth or gums

  • No longer chewing on toys/bones

  • Reduced appetite

  • Weight loss



There’s nothing worse than having a pet go missing. Unfortunately, over 10 million pets go missing every year — leaving their owners heartbroken.

Microchipping your pet can prevent this from happening to you. About the size of a grain of rice, a microchip contains an ID number unique to your pet. When this device is scanned your personal contact information comes up. Giving the shelter, vet, or pound the ability to return your pet to you.



Neutering your pet is not only important for population control, but will help to prevent medical conditions that can become somewhat costly as your dog or cat ages.

Because of the importance of this surgical procedure, we do our best to make it affordable to ALL pet owners. Our surgical fees include the physical exam, pre-operative medications (if needed), anesthesia, surgical monitoring, pain medication, the surgery itself, and any post surgical re-exams (if needed).

We also participate in the New Jersey State Neuter/Spay Program. This can be of great benefit to you if you adopted your pet from a participating shelter/pound or are receiving public assistance. If you do not qualify for the State Program, and you have special financial needs, please contact us 973-328-7112 and we’ll work with you to find a solution.


Surgical Monitoring

Before a surgery, we carefully screen our pet patients to make sure they’re healthy for anesthesia.

Monitoring of the anesthetized patient is a continual process from pre-medication to full recovery. Your pet will be monitored by state-of-the-art monitoring machines that record the heart rate, oxygen saturation, blood pressure, EKG, and ETCO2.
