  • excellent service

    -gabs Argenio from Staten Island, NY
    Pet Name: xena

    the doctors and nurses are absolutely amazing. they are the only vet office I will trust my pets to go to. they care for your pet to the fullest extent. even after a visit they follow up with a call few days later to see how the patient is doing. for someone like me who has a difficult dog that gets anxiety at the vet once in the room with the doctors and nurse he calms down and feels safe. I give gateway animal hospital 5 stars at professionalism, convenience and most important care for your animals.

  • Excellent service

    -Lauren from Staten Island, NY
    Pet Name: Kiedis

    I took my puppy Kiedis to Gateway and was extremely pleased with my overall experience. The hospital was spotless and didn't smell at all like an animal hospital. The staff was very friendly and very helpful, they answered all of my questions and I left much more informed than when I arrived. I highly recommend Gateway Animal Hospital to every pet owner.
