  • Loss of my pet

    -Fiona Barone from Toms River, NJ
    Pet Name: Sonny Barone

    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

  • Decades of Caring

    -Tina Karpinski from Toms River, NJ
    Pet Name: Kali Ginger Buddy

    Pet Image 38 years ago my parents started bringing our dogs to Toms River Veterinary Hospital. Over the years and many 4-legged family members later, I still bring my "babies" to Dr. Levine. Back then, it was Dr. Bernard Levine who successfully put a plate into our German Shepard's shattered hip. Now, it's Dr. Richard Levine I trust with my 3 rescued Newfoundlands. Everyone at TRVH is very compassionate, understanding and kind. They know our pets are members of our family and they are treated as such. When I am asked who my vet is, with pride I tell them, "I've gone to my vet for 38 years and wouldn't think of bringing my babies anywhere else...I bring them to Toms River Veterinary Hospital...because they're the best!"

  • Thank You

    -Lois from Toms River, NJ

    I just want to say thank you to the retired Dr. Levine for doing what although natural to him makes him stand out as the best possible role model in a sometimes inhumane world.

  • I Have the Best Vets in the World

    -Karen S from Toms River, NJ
    Pet Name: Many pets

    I have had many, many pets over the years. I have seen every vet at TRAH in the last 10 years. I cannot thank them enough for the time and consideration that have given Fatty, Opie, Willie, Charlie, Katie, Jack, and Maria(belle) and Priscilla. Always attentive to my pets needs and knowledgable of the latest advances in veterinary medicine to aid in their health and/or recovery. The techs and the receptionist are friendly and knowledgable also. If they don't know an answer, they will find out for you! I love TRAH.

  • Thanks Again

  • Thank you for your kindess

    -Laura Smith from Toms River, NJ
    Pet Name: Oreo

    Pet Image My almost 20 year old cat, Oreo had stopped eating a week or two before Hurricane Sandy hit. She got really bad right after Sandy and I made the hard decision to put her to sleep. The vet I had been taking her too, had not reopened yet so a friend gave me the number of Toms River Animal Hospital. I called on Friday and made an appointment for Saturday.

    Everyone was just so nice and understanding from my first call to walking out afterwards. I cannot thank you enough for your help and kindness. I have already decided that when I get another cat, Toms River Animal Hospital is my new vet.

    Thank you very much,

  • We love Dr. Levine and TRAH

    -Ern Glowacki from Farmingdale, NJ

    Hands down, the best vet I've ever encountered. Compassionate, knowledgeable and goes above and beyond every single time! If I could take my kids to TRAH, I would! :)

  • Compassion

    -Amanda from Toms River, NJ
    Pet Name: Nico and Annie

    We put our dear 12 year old dog to rest here at this hospital not long ago. We had never been there before, and they treated us so well. They were understanding and even the vet was tearing up as we hugged our dog goodbye.

    Now, our dog Nico has a blockage in his stomach. We prepared earlier today to say goodbye to our beloved dog--only 3 months after losing our other other four legged love. We couldn't afford to pay the whole thing, so Dr. Levine intervened. He said we have to give him a chance. He truly understands that Nico is our family member. He called a surgeon that said that yes, money would not get in the way of saving our dog.

    No matter what happens today, my family and I are so, so thankful to the wonderful people at this hospital. They are so caring, and they love animals so much, that they do everything within their power to help you. We owe them so much for our dogs, to whom they've showed so much love and compassion.


    -Gina from Beachwood, NJ
    Pet Name: Nala

    Yesterday was our first visit to the TR Animal hospital. Unfortunately our Nala fell ill out of the blue. Between the staff who helped me make the appointment (of which I was very teary) to everyone there yesterday who helped us when she suddenly passed away, I just wanted to say THANK YOU! Dr. Gaddy & the staff were amazing. It was a very hard situation that was made easier due to everyone we came in contact with. You can tell that those who work there have a genuine love of animals and can relate to the bond that pets and their owners have. We will definitely be bringing our other dog Willis here from now on!! Thank you again.
