  • Rabies Clinic Success

    -Chris Elton,Director, BAARC from Babylon, NY, NY

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the staff of Aldrich Animal Hospital for your exemplary service at our free rabies inoculation clinic on Sunday June 27th 2010. You, Dr. LaSalle, Megan and Lauren braved high heat and humidity on a Sunday, your only day off, to serve our local residents and their beloved pets. No small task. With your help, this shelter and Last Hope Animal rescue were able to inoculate well over 200 pets! Despite the very uncomfortable weather conditions every one of you had a smile on your face the whole time. We could not have done it without you and I hope we can count on your support in future events

  • Love Aldrich

    -Stephanie from East Islip, NY
    Pet Name: Rocco

    Pet Image Aldrich is a great animal hospital. The entire staff is wonderful and caring. Colleen is the best. If it wasn't for her, I never would have gotten through my dog's surgery. They are all very compassionate towards the pets and people!

  • Very Caring people

    -Jacque Thomas from West Islip, NY
    Pet Name: Max Thomas

    Pet Image My dog Max Thomas was a patient at Aldrich Animal Hospital for many years. The care was always wonderful but in more recent years, Dr. LaSala was treating her and never have I felt the love and concern from another vet than I felt from her. Max loved her and she was wonderful with Max. Along came Dr. Shilke. She only saw Max once but she too show to be a very caring doctor.
    Max lost use of her legs due to ongoing hip problems two days ago. The decision to put her to sleep was made and because of the love and compassion of Dr. Shilke and the staff, it made saying goodbye to my beloved Max much easier.
    Thank you for everything you have done for Max and for our family!
