Would never go anywhere else

-Mrs. Maxwell from Ronkonkoma, NY

Thank you so much for all the help and support you have given us and our cats throughout the years. Boots, Lacie, and Layden are always so happy to visit the staff at Sunrise Vet. Your staff's ability to make us feel that our pets are priority has made trusting the doctors easy. We couldn't be happier with the services the doctors have provided to Boots. Also thanks to all the nurses and Receptionists who have been so kind.

the best people in animal care

-barbara a palazzolo from bay shore, NY
Pet Name: Angel

My father took our dogs here many years ago when the prior vet was there. Since he had always stated this was a great place, once I became a dog owner, I also came here. the Staff and Doctors at this facility have no equals. I have recommended them to many friends and relatives. their care and concern is not just for the wellbeing of my pets, but also for me and my family. I would never go anywhere else, and I have been a client here for over 12 yrs.

saving a life

-Daniel Romano from Central Islip, NY
Pet Name: starina

Our cat has always had problems with her ears. We assumed it was just water after getting her washed and clipped. But her ears were becoming red and had some blood from her scratching. Dr. Bystry examined her and ran some labs tests. The test came back positive for a very bad bacterial infection. He said "Your cat is very sick. She could die". We followed his instructions and administered the medicine he prescribed. No vet had ever followed up with any tests. They only cleaned her ears and gave her back to us. Dr. Bystry followed up with phone calls for several days and nights. After several weeks our cat was well and found no need to scratch her ears. She has had no ear problems since then. We have never met any doctor more caring and knowledgeable than Dr. Bystry.

Best care

-Rosemary from Bay shore, NY
Pet Name: Beast

When I became a new pet owner I wanted to save money so I thought to use a low cost clinic for my veterinary needs. I thought they were taking care of him but when Beast became sick and after endless trips to this clinic that is when I realized that i needed a veterinary practice, I went to Sunrise because they cared for him a few times when he was at the pet store. My dog wound up with an infection and Sunrise brought it to my attention. After a month on antibiotics Beast was feeling better.Sunrise not only cares for your animal but they show the animals love and concern, Beastie gets the best care. I recommend Sunrise for all your pet needs

Caring Professionals

-Chris Jaklitsch from Bohemia, NY
Pet Name: Miss Tina

My most sincere thanks to Dr. Bystry and the entire staff of Sunrise Vet Group for all of the hard work and attention they provided to my cat, Miss Tina, when she suffered a broken leg and eventually, amputation of the leg. Both Tina and I appreciated everyone's compassion, perseverance and understanding during months of treatment. Today, Miss Tina is her same old sweet little self, despite having only three legs.

Thanks also for attending to Sandy, the handsome ragdoll cat, who found his forever home just in time for Christmas.

I can't imagine taking my pets anywhere else!

-Libby Trzcinski from Bay Shore, NY
Pet Name: Nelly and Emily

I have been going to Sunrise Veterinary Group for over 20 years. I had the privilege of having Dr. Barbara Thode as my Veterinarian. Words cannot express my love and appreciation to Dr. Thode and her staff for the amazing care and kindness that was shown to all 5 of my furry children, and especially to me. Dr. Thode and her staff not only care about your furry children but they truly care for their parents as well. I recently lost my last furry child, Nelly. The overwhelming kindness that was given to me will always be remembered. I am truly grateful with all of my heart. With love and thanks, always, Libby Trzcinski xxxooo P.S. When the right time comes along to get my next furry child, the only place I would go would only be to Dr. Thode and her staff.

What a Wonderful Veterinary Practice!

-Pam B. from West Islip, NY
Pet Name: Tom

I work for a local school district. In our school, we have a Discovery Room in which we have two pet Degus. I noticed that one of our Degus was not acting in his usual manner. After watching him for a few days, we decided he needed to see a vet. I live near Sunrise Veterinary and I had heard that they have a vet there that sees exotic animals. We took Tom there and saw Dr. Thode. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Thode and the entire staff at Sunrise Veterinary. Not only did she give Tom a thorough examination, she was kind and gentle with him as well. Although the news what not good, (he has cancer) Dr. Thode floored us. We truly appreciate her kindness and her love for animals which was clearly evident. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!

Most caring compassionate staff I could ever find

-Carolyn Agenjo from w islip, NY
Pet Name: Tonkin

My heartfelt thanks to Dr. Thode, Dr. Bystry, Laura and every other staff member here, for the loving care they gave my failing 19-year old cat (and me) for the past year. She's gone now, but any new pet I get will go to these wonderful people. I'm lucky to live just 5 minutes from the office, but I would travel miles to see them if necessary.
