Caring for pets... and their people, too.

Toms River Animal Hospital has been serving Toms River, Beachwood, Bayville, Pine Beach, Manchester, Brick, and the entire Ocean County since 1956. Over that time, we have grown into a state-of-the-art pet care facility with an exceptional nine-doctor team. Our doctors use their more than 130 years of combined veterinary experience every day to help keep our patients in good health and feeling great.

We are committed to offering the best possible care for your pets. Our doctors strive to keep at the forefront of veterinary medicine to ensure that we are offering the latest treatments and procedures available. Our exceptional physician team treats dogs and cats, as well as exotic pets. Our Medical Director and Boarded Internist, Dr. Michele Reimer, will often tell us that if a client can fit his or her pet in the car, we can see and treat the pet. We are excited to announce that Dr. Suzanne Ellis is now offering house call services!

Loss of my pet
Fiona Barone from Toms River

Dear Dr. Bell, Words cannot describe what an absolutely compassionate and wonderful person you are. I want to thank you and Stacey for helping us with the loss of Sonny and spending his last few minutes with him. He will be missed by all of our friends and by us very much. It is very quiet here without him but I know he is in a better place. Thanks again for all of your support and compassion. I don't think you know how much it is noticed or appreciated. Stacey, you are also a cut above the rest. Hugs and love to both of you from Sonny. Sincerely, Fiona Barone
