  • The care and compassion are exceptional

    -Michelle Heil from Cresskill, NJ
    Pet Name: Luna, Taylor, Celia, Kahlua

    Pet Image Our family has been a client of Closter Animal Hospital for over 50 years and exclusively of Dr. Maida for 34 of those years. My family, furry ones included of course, have always been treated as one of their family. The care and compassion is exceptional. This includes the best of times such as introducing Luna our newest addition (waiting at the reception counter for Dr. Maida) to the sad and unavoidable loss we feel when they leave us to become angels in heaven.

    Dr. Maida and his staff are up to date on all the latest technology which means my pets have the best regardless if it is for wellness or illness. I would not hesitate to leave them in Dr. Maida's care or that of the staff and highly recommend their services.

  • Best of the best

    -Michelle Heil from Cresskill, NJ
    Pet Name: Kahlua

    I have been a client of Closter Animal Hospital for over 40 years and of Dr. Michael Maida since he joined the practice-has to be at least 25 years! He is a kind, skilled, and dedicated doctor who has taken excellent care of my family of pets. It is evident by the care my family receives that everyone on staff is an animal advocate and animal lover too.
