Staten Island Animal Hospital

Hospital Tour

Staten Island Animal Hospital is one of the oldest hospitals on Staten Island. We've kept the old-style warmth and family atmosphere, but are now part of a nationwide team of over 450 hospitals. We can consult with specialists on any subject, from anesthesiology to zoonotic diseases. At the same time, it is important to know that we're constantly growing to meet your pet's changing needs. Our upgraded surgical suite with piped-in oxygen and advanced cardiac monitoring abilities are just some of our hospital's amenities. And being the only hospital on Staten Island with a certified veterinary acupuncturist and certified Chinese herbologist definitely make us special.

We invite you to visit our hospital and become acquainted with our experienced and compassionate staff of doctors, veterinary technicians and client care specialists. We would enjoy meeting you and your furry loved ones!

In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
