Our Toms River Animal Hospital

Toms River Animal Hospital is a full-service companion animal hospital that was founded in 1956. We have been an AAHA-certified hospital for more than 50 years. Established in 1933, AAHA is well known among pet owners and veterinarians for its high standards for veterinary hospitals and pet health care. Our membership in AAHA helps ensure that your pets will receive the best care during their visits to our hospital.

Our services and facilities are designed to provide routine preventative care for healthy pets, early detection and treatment of disease as your pets age, and complete state-of-the-art medical and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime. Our seven doctors and more than 40 patient care team members use our more than 400 years combined experience in veterinary medicine to partner with our clients and help their pets lead long, happy, healthy lives. We strive to provide exceptional, individualized service to each of our clients and extraordinary care to each of our patients.

Upon arrival to our hospital, you will be greeted by a member of our reception staff. You will then be seen by one of our seven doctors in one of our five examination rooms. If your pet needs medication or a special food, we have a fully stocked pharmacy, as well as a wide variety of prescription diets. We hope your pets remain happy and healthy for years to come. Whether we're seeing your pets for a preventative  visit, a sick visit, or an injury, we've got a variety of laboratory panels that aid us in early detection, as well as to diagnose what may be ailing your pet. We have a two-table sterile surgical suite on-site where your pet will receive optimal care from our technicians and surgeons. Your pet will be accompanied by a veterinary technician from their pre-anesthetic injections, through their procedure and post-operative recovery. During their procedure, you can take comfort in knowing that our technicians will use a variety of equipment to monitor our anesthetized patients during their procedure. Some of this equipment includes pulse oximeters for oxygen monitoring, EKG machines to monitor heart rate and rhythm, carbon dioxide monitoring of respiration, temperature monitoring to assure pets' warmth during surgery and blood pressure monitoring.

Although we hope that you are never faced with an emergency situation, our hospital is ready to handle emergencies at all times. We have a state-of-the-art oxygen unit, digital radiographs on-site (x-rays) with the capability to receive a board certified radiologist's report within twenty minutes, ultrasound and echocardiogram facilities, in addition to  laboratory equipment capable of yielding blood results within 15 minutes. Should your pet require overnight hospitalization, we have a technician on-site 24/7 to monitor our patients and boarders. Should they have a concern about how your pet is doing, they are able to call our doctors at all hours.

If you would like to learn more about our facilities and the capabilities we have to care for your loved one, please give our office a call. We would be happy to answer any questions that you may have so that you may rest assured your pet will receive the very best in veterinary care..
