Best Animal Hospital New York 2011 - West Village Veterinary Hospital

West Village Veterinary Hospital

West Village Veterinary Hospital

75 8th Ave.

New York, NY 10014

212-633-7400

Map & Details>>

The walls in the clean, white lobby of the West Village Veterinary Hospital are emblazoned with huge glamour shots of happy cats and dogs, and the place's loving regard for animals doesn't stop there. We lived with an ailing elderly cat for months, and during her frequent visits to the WVVH, the staff called her "Mama" and gave her all the affection—and top-notch care—an animal hospital should give to a sick pet. The vets were patient with our frequent freaked-out phone calls, too. The hospital is open seven days a week and offers all your basic veterinary coverage plus an in-house laboratory, oncology treatment, and laser surgery (and also Dale, the cute tattooed receptionist). Prices are none too cheap but are pretty standard for New York vets. 75 Eighth Avenue, 212-633-7400, westvillagevets.com (10014)

I'll definitely look into this pet hospital.  I'm trying to find something close to where I live . I want to have a go-to hospital for my cat.  It sounds like that hospital offers a lot of different services. http://mybalboavet.com

The phrase that stuck out to me in the article were the words "top-notch".   This phrase would seem to apply to the situation when it comes to getting the care your pet deserves.  I can imagine how the last thing someone would probably want is to not be able to get the care for their pet that would be necessary for a speedy recovery.    http://www.gulfportveterinarian.com

That looks like an awesome animal hospital.  It is good to see animal hospitals doing excellent work.  Hopefully that trend continues and we can continue to make quality care more available for more people's pets.

It is so rare to find a vet that has a great fluid staff. Most veterinary hospitals are always hectic and crazy. Not to say they don't do their job, but they just have a harder time being I sync. I have worked in one and everyone was great but it was challenging because there are so many responsibilities. http://myuniversitypethospital.com

I've been in a situation where I needed help for my pet a few times. You get so worried! It's really no different than a human member of the family getting sick. I know we're not supposed to be so attached to animal pets, but that's never the case for me.

Wow, what a great way to recognize a vet clinic such as the West Village Veterinary Hospital  for others to go visit. As a kid I remember going to a racing greyhound veterinary to take in our dog who was sick. Somehow our dog digged into our trashcan and found a 3 week old lasagna that got him sick. Luckily it wasn't that serious but I'm sure my dog learned his lesson. http://www.sandownveterinaryclinic.com.au

It's really good to hear about animal hospitals that really put the animal first. When you take your pet to the vet, you are entrusting them to take care of an important part of your life. At least, that's the way I feel when I'm looking for a vet. http://www.centersinaianimalhospital.com

This veterinary hospital sounds awesome! I wish I lived closer! My husband and I just got a puppy so we will have to find a good veterinary hospital before too long. Hopefully we can find something of this caliber near us! http://www.marcumroadvet.com

Finding a good veterinarian is so important. It's hard sometimes to realize just how important it can actually be. I don't know what I would do if either of my dogs got so sick that they needed medical care. I know that it would be a difficult experience to say the least. Having a place that you can count on would make that kind of experience significantly easier to deal with.

Finding a good animal hospital is really important. Your pets become a big part of your family. My kids would be so sad if something happened to our family dog. It seems like it is a smart idea to find a good animal hospital before anything bad happened to your pet. That why you know they will get the best care possible.  http://www.mybaysidevet.com

It is such a blessing to be able to have such nice animal hospitals around. Because there are so many close by you can make sure that your pets are happy and healthy. Your pet really can be your best friend. That is why it is so important for you to take good care of them.

There's nothing better than an animal hospital that knows your pets by name. It is so helpful to know that they are care about your pet that much. My dog Ben means the world to me and I wouldn't be satisfied with anything less than the best treatment available for him.  http://myuniversitypethospital.com

I love it when I find out about a vet that does amazing work for our best friends. I feel more confident about the many vets out there because they will want to level up to this standard of care. Thanks for sharing this veterinary hospital that will most likely visit. http://parkanimalhosp.com

This sounds like a great option! I think a key factor in a vet should be patience. I'd rather not have a vet that is going to criticize my questions and concerns, that's for sure. Thank you for sharing your expertise and experience with us! http://www.tlcfirst.com

My mom loves her dog a lot.  She takes him to the veterinary on a month basis.  He is the healthiest dog I have ever met.  The veterinarian does a really good job at making her dog feel really comfortable and not scared. http://www.clovisvethospital.com

I have a lot of respect for those that take care of animals. My two dogs are my best friends, and I only want the best for them. I am always looking for new ways to help them, to to make sure that they are healthy and strong. I like what this article said about taking them to the vet for checkups. It really does help. I know I have been able to help prevent things that I wouldn't have been able to if I hadn't been able to help as early on.

That sounds like a great animal clinic. I like how they treated "Mama" so well. You can usually tell within the first few minutes how much the workers truly love animals. My pets mean the world to me and I couldn't see myself not taking them to the vet when sick.  http://www.glenerinanimalhospital.com/en/
