We know all of our dogs by name and temperament, giving us the understanding needed to treat them properly. If something comes up during a walk, day care, or an overnight stay we will know just what to do. After your dog’s grooming, why not schedule a checkup?

  • I love the Vets here. They are very caring and are really great about answering any questions or concerns. I have been taking my dog Bella here over the past few years. She has been for regular check ups and for some wounds she has received playing with other dogs. They are always very caring and take wonderful care of her. My dog doesn't usually like Vets but she loves the ones here. I'm so glad I switched to here!

    I love the Vets here!
  • After joining Biscuits and Bath over a year and a half ago, I was happy to learn they had a vet team on staff. I have a three year old French Bulldog that had been suffering from sever skin allergies almost his entire life My current vet could not seem to get ahold of the issue, I figured it wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion. Not only did it not hurt to get a second opinion, but it was the best decision I could've made for my dogs current and long term health. Although, we were not able to find a solution after the first visit, the team at NYVP took a patient and cost effective approach to my dogs care. Dr. Mortsakis started with small simple solutions that slowly but surely made a huge difference in my dogs over all comfort. I was thrilled she did not immediately jump to the expensive blood work and allergy testing my previous vet had suggested. Now a year and a half later with another French Bulldog as part of crazy family I could never imagine trusting another vet with my dogs health care. The team at NYVP has truly changed my dogs life and we are forever grateful!
