In addition to the traditional services you would expect from a veterinary hospital, we offer pets and pet parents a selection of specialized veterinary services. For example, we also specialize in treating exotic pets, including birds, reptiles, mammals, such as rabbits, ferrets, pocket pets among others. (Please see our extensive Avian and Exotics Pet Care Library below for our educational materials about many species of exotic pets.) And we provide onsite grooming and boarding, so you can count on us to meet all your pet's needs.
Staten Island Animal hospital also offers Integrative medicine therapies including acupuncure, herbel and holistic medicine. Dr. Irwin Ruderman, our hospital's medical director, is a certified veterinary acupuncturist and is also certified in Chinese herbal medication and Tui-Na, which is a form of Chinese chiropractic treatment.
If you aren't sure if we offer a specific service that's important to you, please ask us. If we don't offer it already, we can refer you to one of our sister animal hospitals in the area or to one of our veterinary referral hospitals.
