  • Southgate Has The Best Care For Your Pet

    -Karyn and Larry from East Meadow, NY
    Pet Name: Jake and Finnegan

    We have been coming here since the early 90's and even though we moved to East Meadow back in '98 Dr. Mauro and her excellent staff are the reason we could never take our dogs anywhere else. We feel so lucky to have found people that provide such quality care for our boys!!

  • Dr. Mauro is the Best

    Pet Name: Muffy

    I love Dr. Mauro... She really cares about the animals and gives the best advice... I really trust her when it comes to my dog....

  • Bella

    -sandlady from lindenhurst, NY
    Pet Name: Bella

    Went to Southgate Animal Hosp with my family member Bella. She is a Yorkie. From the moment we walked into the hospital I felt at ease when I was welcomed by front desk. Concerned, compassionate, understanding of patient and family members. Dr. Mauro I believe is the best. She's gentle, and very understanding about being a pet owner. Our pets ARE family members. How I treat my kids is how I treat my Bella. She diagnosed Bella with bladder stones. She told us it will be a tough road ahead, but if we do what she says, we can avoid surgery. Everything Dr. Mauro said, happened. Now Bella has passed stones and is on the way to running outside with her ball again. Thanks again to all at Southgate Animal Hosp for making our Bella well again.

  • Thank You

    The Entire staff is commendable. The office and patient rooms are super clean and sanitary. My cat loves the MD Staff and behaves like an angel as a result. The cost is pricey but most places are these days. Thank you again Southgate. Keep up the Great work.

  • Wonderful Dr Mauro and staff

    -John and Michele from Copiague, NY
    Pet Name: Winston and Milo

    Dr Mauro is a wonderful vet who I trust with both my dogs. She gave my lab Casey her first shots in 1998 and Casey's last shots in 2013 when our baby was put to sleep. Dr Mauro, I could swear, also had tears in her eyes. She was wonderful. Now she takes wonderful care of our English bulldog Winston and our Goldendoodle Milo. Dr Mauro and the staff are wonderful and I would not bring my pets anywhere else.

  • Compassionate Care

    -Joel and Margie Talesnick from Copiague, NY
    Pet Name: Duke and Andy

    We have brought our 2 cats and 1 dog here for several years. We have always received top notch care for our pets along with great advice. In recent months, our female cat, Sesame, struggled with cancer. With the loving help of Dr. Mauro, we got to enjoy Sesame's company for an additional six months. When it came down to the end, Dr. Mauro treated us all with great compassion and understanding. We highly recommend this office for your beloved pet care.

  • Unbelieveably Caring

    -Sylvia from Farmingdale, NY
    Pet Name: Casey

    Pet Image I do not know where to begin. My brother recommended Dr Mauro and Southgate to me for my 2 year old Rotty/Shepard mix Casey in 1999 due to I was unhappy with the vet I was using. Dr Mauro and her staff are the most loving, caring, friendly group of people with the biggest hearts I have ever known. She always had Casey's best interests at heart and never steered me wrong. Because of her and her staff and the care she always received and the neurodic mommy, Casey lived a very Long and Healthy life until recently. I will never forget Dr. Mauro and the compassion she had for Casey and has for all her patients. Dr's like her are very far and few between. Thank you. Sylvia Pepe (Casey's mommy)
