  • What We Like ABOUT Freehold VCA

    -Lori Forrest from Freehold, NJ

    I have been a customer at the Freehold facility for over 25 years. Dr. Gloth initially took care of my childhood dog, Snowflake and then years later, my parents dog Kya and currently my 2 dogs Sierra & Nevada. He did and still does so with a huge smile on his face and a concerning "How’s your parents doing?" whenever I go in for an appointment.

    When I met my husband almost 3 years ago, he had two dogs as well. Since Dr. Gloth was no longer taking new clients, Bob’s dogs – Chynna and Lexi had the privilege of getting to know Dr.Tullio – only too well though.

    As lazy as Lexi (a husky) is, she seems to always be getting hurt. First it was getting her "thumb" nail ripped off while playing with Sierra and then it was a large mass in her hind leg that all of a sudden appeared one week after her normal physical. Chynna is a Sharpei, and as inherent in that breed, has several serious health issues- eye ulcers and bad skin.

    Dr. Tullio has treated both dogs A LOT lately due to these ailments. He does so with a huge laugh every time he sees Bob sitting in the waiting room with one or the other of the dogs, but he also does so with such extreme dedication and compassion that one rarely finds these days.

    He has squeezed the dogs in for emergency appointments when I’m sure he thought he was going to head home on time this time and has made phone calls to Bob well past closing hours on a Friday night or first thing when he arrived to the office to let us know how the dogs faired after surgery or a procedure.

    When my parents’ dog died very suddenly last year, Dr. Gloth was not on that day. But thankfully, Dr. Tullio was and treated my parents and Kya as if he was their doctor the last 15 years, just like Dr Gloth would have. He did every thing he could to try and revive her, was so compassionate to my parents in the waiting room right afterwards, and had already told Dr. Gloth about what happened before my mother showed up first thing the next morning to once again thank everyone at the office for how nice they were to them and Kya the night before.

    And although not specifically by name, I can not forget the ENTIRE rest of the staff that makes every visit pleasant (and most likely keeps the place together!)
    • The Techs: treat each dog like it’s their own – taking them for walks, giving them biscuits, giving and getting a few hugs kisses here and there.
    • The Front Desk: efficient scheduling of appointments; courteous phone skills; a "Come right in" in an emergency; know who you are when you call (now granted we’ve been there a lot lately) but it really does show they care and pay attention.
    • The rest of the Doctors: whom we may not have had a chance to deal with directly yet, but we know they have been involved with consultations of our dogs and certainly contribute to the overall experience we’ve had at Freehold VCA.

    We know we will be customers of Freehold VCA for life!! And we can’t even begin to thank everyone enough for treating our dogs so well and with the best care that we could ask for from anyone!!!!!!!

  • Lolly

    -Arlene and Ralph Yannece from Freehold, NJ

    The best testimonial has to come from our Kerry Blue Terrier, Lolly, who cannot wait to get out of our car when we pull into the Freehold Animal Hospital. She has friends there. Dr. Tullio, who treats her like his own child (and answers our questions and returns our phone calls), and all of the staff. The desk attendants love working with the animals and are efficient and friendly. We also board Lolly there alot, and her tail wags when she sees any of the kennel staff.

  • Thank you

    -Denise from Forked River, NJ
    Pet Name: Odin

    I just wanted to say thank you, to all at Freehold VCA. It was very nice to receive a card from my friends and former co-workers. I love and miss you all and I know that Odin was loved by you all.
    I was only fitting that his short life ended where it began in your hospital

  • Simply Sensational

    -Laura Amato from jackson, NJ
    Pet Name: Binx and Gizmo

    Pet Image I had been through a tough patch with losing two kitties in October and December of this past year. The vets I had seen in the past treated us as if we were just another dollar walking through the door. When I brought home my newest addition in November 2011 I set out to find a veterinary hospital I could trust. Through my research the VCA stood out the most and upon our first visit I new this was the place for my Furbabies and I. The staff is sweet and comforting, when I arrive they know who I am and greet me and my babies by name, the wait time is short, appointments are easily made and they work with my schedule with their late hours and their prices are the best around. My cats actually LOVE getting in their cat carriers to go see Dr. McGee, who is nothing short of amazing with her caring demeanor and persistent nature to find the cause of an ailment. I highly recommend VCA of Freehold to anyone with a fuzzy friend.
    With Love and Purrs,


    -Patty Karuzis from New Egypt, NJ
    Pet Name: Candi and Harley

    No words at all can describe this amazing staff. My girl Candi severly damaged her ear where she needed surgery. The lower half of her ear had to be removed. The staff is always so welcoming and very compassionate. They do not discriminate against breeds which being a Pitbull owner is VERY IMPORTANT to me. I love this staff and I am extremely grateful that the first Vet I went to I was not happy with because I would have never found all of you.... You are my babygirls 2nd home!!! Thanks for always making them feel comfort always.

  • Wonderful vets and staff

    -Lucy from Freehold, NJ
    Pet Name: Brooklyn

    We have always had a great experience with Freehold Animal Hospital, starting with our dog. We adopted a dog from a shelter and she was very ill when we went to pick her up. We had never used Freehold Animal Hospital before, but they were the only vets that would take us at a moment's notice. Our adopted girl had pneumonia and they provided her with excellent care. The vets and staff truly care about animals and it shows! This is the first time I've ever had a dog that LIKED going to the vet...she walks in to the office wagging her tail. We have taken our dogs, cats, and birds to Freehold Animal Hospital and have always been pleased with the wonderful service and the excellent care our pets have received.


    -Dee and vinny from freehold, NJ

    We have written in the past about the wonderful care that our beagles receive from everyone on staff. Not just the doctors, but the whole staff. The greeting at the front desk from everyone immediately makes you feel at ease whether your pet is arriving for just a well checkup, or for illness (as one of my beagles is going through). Since 1993 we have been going to Freehold Vet hospital, (having met Dr Gloth through our children) and loved the rest of the staff as the years progressed, and will continue to recommend anyone to do so as well. Dedicated, committed, compassionate, friendly are ALL of the doctors and STAFF as well. THANK YOU ALL for always being there when our beagles need you.

  • Amazing Care

    -Lori from East Brunswick, NJ
    Pet Name: Tasha Belle

    I have a 10.5 year old dog and I went on a Wednesday for the wellness day. She was behind on her vaccinations and lots of other stuff and she is my baby. Every member of the staff there treated her as such it really was amazing from the front desk staff to the techs, to the doctors they were all fantastic. I see lots of people say it is expensive. I have never found a vet that is not expensive. But you don't buy a pet if you are not prepared to pay a price. I would pay what I did and twice on sundays as they told me aside from some arthritis my dog is perfect inside and out. Thank you

  • Dr Gloth - animal 'saviour'.

    -The Carr Family from Freehold, NJ
    Pet Name: Tiger

    Dr Gloth is an exceptional veterinarian. He cares for our precious kitties like they are his own. Not only that but he is such a wonderful person that we feel like he is one of the family. His passion for animals and their welfare is exceptional. I don't know what we would do without vets like him. Our 'little ones' say a huge THANK YOU to our "Woody". Thanks so much Dr. Gloth. And not forgetting the desk staff, who are friendly and welcoming, and who always remind us of forthcoming appointments and always FOLLOW UP on each visit, which is an important part of patient care. F.A.H. is a blessing to anyone with an animal.
