  • A Wonderful Place

    -Naomi Neiman from Douglaston, NY
    Pet Name: Clara, Sophie, Casey Max

    Animal General treats you and your pets like family. Their compassion and warmth is unmatched in my view. From examining my baby kittens to helping me deal with the loss of a beloved elderly cat, they have shown the utmost gentleness, expertise and character. I am deeply indebted to Dr. Crandell and his assistant, Mr. Cid for their support and kindness when having to deal with the death of my Casey Max. Both Dr. Leonhart and Dr. Crandell are exceptionally gifted DVMs. I could never go anywhere else.

  • Excellent Care for Pet and Owner

    -Karin Schackne from Lake Ronkonkoma, NY
    Pet Name: Molly

    Pet Image Although I moved from Huntington to Lake Ronkonkoma 2 yrs ago, I still bring my dog Molly back to Animal General for her veterinary care. Molly is now 9 and she has been a patient since she was 8 weeks old. The staff and the doctors have always given her amazing care. Admittedly, I am neurotic about my dog, but the doctors have always taken the time to answer any of my questions/concerns. Animal General is just terrific.

    -Phoebe Atteinson from Muttontown, NY
    Pet Name: Mickey Dobelle

    Animal General has provided excellent care of my dog. The doctors listen with their heart and treat the entire family!

  • Twenty years of satisfaction

    -K. Russo from Coram, NY
    Pet Name: Six happy, healthy dogs

    I recommend my Vet, Dr. Ellen Leonhardt and the staff at Animal General to all of my 'dog friends'. Being involved with dogs for many years, I truly appreciate a Vet who is caring, experienced, and understanding. The staff has shared the great times with puppy litters and sad times when saying goodbye to a loved family member. It is wonderful that Dr. Leonhardt pursues advancements in alternative treatments to surgery. I have personally participated in PLASMA treatments for my Rottweiler who is an AKC Grand Champion show dog. I cant say enough great things about all at Animal General!

  • Dedication and compassion

    -Leon Family from Levittown, NY
    Pet Name: Apollo

    Pet Image When our Rottweiler "Apollo" needed a surgical procedure everything was explained to us in detail by Dr. Perrone and Dr. Leonhardt- from the way he would be monitored under anesthesia all the way to his recovery. While the surgery was not life threatening- for us, it was our first experience with any kind of health issue for Apollo. No one at Animal General minimized our concerns. We appreciate them very much!
