If you drive or use Critter Cab, Dr. Thornton on Westside Avenue (Westside Animal Hospital) is good.

I don't know much about the vet at Newport.

I also highly recommend Dr. Hatch in Secaucus NJ. Only 15 minutes away and you can use the Critter Cab to pick up and drop off pets.

Has anyone used the Newport Animal Hospital at 31 River Drive So.? I'm looking to see if anyone thinks they're good or not. Or does anyone have any highly recommended Vets in the Hamilton Park area or close by? Thanks in advance for any feedback.

I go to Downtown Vets. They want $500 -$600 to clean a pomeranian's teeth. Is that how much it is in JC? I used to go to Tribeca Vets when I lived in the city and they are notorious for being expensive.

We take our Butchie to Westside. Downtown and Hoboken are very expensive, sometimes almost double. I have had only good experiences with Westside also know as jersey city animal hospital.

Are these vets reasonably priced? I took my cat to a vet in Montclair who charged me over $100 for a checkup, so I'm interested to know if there's anything in the area that won't charge me an arm and a leg.


The place on Westside Ave. only charged like $40 or $50 for the vet to examine my cat, when I thought he was sick .

However, after all his shots & everything it does end up being over $100 for his yearly exam.

Jersey City Animal Hospital on West Side Ave. is great. If you mention that you found them online, you save 15% on your first visit. I have one cat and have been going to them for a year.

I know there was a thread on this before but I searched and it didn't come up.

If anyone finds it can you post it here?

Otherwise, I need a vet recommendation for my 2 cats. Anywhere in JC is fine.

Thanks to anyone who responds!

You often have to wait as long as an hour but that's because he takes his time with each and every patient. He's by far the best. There are other doctors there so be sure to ask for him.

We just got a dog and we're looking for a vet around downtown JC... anyone have any suggestions? (or hints on who not to go to?)

I'd like to have one for him close to home that I know we can count on for anything so that if he gets really sick, I don't have to put him in his carrier and take him on the path to get to the MD.

Suggestions?

Dr. Tuder, the owner, is great. kinda gruff, but a super vet. he's not there very often, though.

Dr. Ponce and Dr. Wong are also really good.

To those of you who use Downtown Vets on 1st street/Animal Infirmary - which vets do you like to see?

I would be very reluctant to go again for a couple of reasons, mostly because they were wildly reactionary and ran a gazillion tests, and the vet on call had zero bedside manner. I was a wreck and just sort of went along with it. In the end, my dog snapped at the vet out of sheer frustration, I think. That's animal instinct for ya.


They nickel and dime you through the whole emotional process too.


If you can get a ride into Secaucus (10 - 15 minutes away), I recommend Dr. Hatch. Dr. Hatch saved my dog's life, pure and simple. He combines a holistic approach to modern medicine and was so concerned with my pet's pain management after a severe mauling.

His prices are very fair in an area where prices prohibit many people from getting their pets proper preventative care. The front desk people are sweet and attentive to all patients and their owners in the waiting room.

for years, the vet on Washington street was the only option in Hoboken, so they got away with outrageous charges and mediocre care.

when the infirmary opened, pet owners rejoiced. there was a huge defection from Hoboken Vet, and from what I've heard, there's been no reason to return.

the infirmary (and now Downtown Vet here in JC) have always given my pack of misfits excellent care, without bankrupting the biped at the other end of the leash.

good luck.

It's actually the Hoboken Animal Infirmary and Downtown Veterinary Associates that are part of the same practice. I use the Hoboken Animal Infirmary for my dog and found their service to be excellent. My dog has very severe allergies and separation anxiety and the doctor went out of her way to reach out to specialists to find out what would be the course of action considering multiple medications might be needed.

Hoboken Animal Hospital and Downtown Veterinary Associates (on Newark Ave at 1st) are run by the same group and I believe the same vets often work at both places.

I have brought my dog to DVA a few times and have been happy. I like that they don't need appointments for anything but surgery and the quality of the vet care has always been fine. Keep in mind many if not most of the vets will be a BVM and not a DVM, but for routine things like shots and such that shouldn't be an issue.

I have never needed a 24-hour animal emergency hospital but there are none in Hudson. I think the closest one is in Ridgefield or Bloomfield.

Thank you, people for the info. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your pets. My cat is doing well, but just in case something does happen, I want to be prepared. So, the information will be stored in my pet emergency kit.

Thanks!

We have been very happy with Hoboken Animal Hospital for the past 10 years. On July 5th we had an emergency - one of our two dear cats Owen had a stroke during the day - since it was the July 4th weekend they were closed and sent us to Ridgefield NJ with him. We lost Owen that night, but the doctors at Ridgefield were very very caring to us and to Owen.

Hi all,

In or near Jersey City Downtown, is there a good vet? Also, if there should be a pet medical emergency, where is the nearest animal emergency room?

Thanks in advance.

The thinking these days is the annual vaccination is more detrimental to the animals than what was once thought. Vets will tell you every year is a must but the companies that make the vaccines don't know how long the vaccine lasts once given so the protocol was well - just give it once a year.

In cats vets are finding cancer sarcomas at the site of the injection so that is also a good reason to change to every 3 years.

Morale - do your research. There's a ton of info on the net.

Don't rush to do the annual vaccination.

Check out http://lmp.luvmypet.com/lmp/index.htm (low-cost vaccinations given by vets at local Petco stores)

Also, Friends of Animals sells certificates for neutering/spading redeemable at local vet offices. I purchased a certificate from them and used it for my dog's procedure at the Animal Hospital in Jersey City and saved a lot of $$ for the same procedure I would have gotten without the certificate. Here is a link to their webstie: http://www.friendsofanimals.org/

Can anyone tell me what the various vets charge around here for a dog's annual and/or vaccines? My dog doesn't have any health problems, so I am slightly more interested in cost than quality of care / having questions answered (I have a vet that I would use for serious issues, but they are not in Jersey City).

Don't get me wrong, Dr. Tudor performed a successful surgery on my other cat in 2005 @ the Hoboken office. They just seem to charge a lot of $, and to want you to spend, spend, spend more when you're there. Like the mechanic who finds 12 other things wrong with your car when you bring it in for an oil change...

I was going to bring my new cat over to 1st Street even though I was skeptical because it's Dr. Tudor (or his son) from Bayonne....But, it is convenient. Then, I was told how much he charges...So, I went back to my old standby on Westside. They're still wonderful after 20 years since my last pet....

First Street is convenient, but that's all. My friend took her very sweet-tempered, gentle cat there, and it was traumatized by their cold treatment. Never again.

Many of us here sing the praises JC Animal Hospital on Westside Ave. I use Dr Thornton for my Akita.


For anyone who doesn't have a car, JC has "Critter Cab".

I have a 5 yr old cat that had some loose + decaying teeth. This was discovered during a routine checkup at the Hoboken Animal Infirmary on Adams St., where I have been going for 4 yrs. I took her to the Jersey City Animal Hospital on Westside Ave for a 2nd opinion, and the results might surprise you:

Hoboken Animal Infirmary: Advised that I have all four teeth pulled because one is rotting, one is loose, and the other two are decaying. This procedure would require that I put the cat under anesthesia and it would cost $450-$550. There is a flat fee to have any dental surgery + they charge per tooth. The vet could not tell me why the cat's teeth are in such bad shape.

JC Animal Hosp. on Westside Ave: Was informed that the cat has gingivitus and thus her gums had significant inflammation. A round of antibiotics were prescribed for the inflammation. The vet said that the loose tooth will eventually fall out on its own. One was so loose that he took it out of her mouth with his two fingers on the spot. Cost for visit + meds: $61, and they asked that I bring the cat back for a followup in 3 weeks. I asked if she might eventually need the teeth pulled and they said NO that they would hate to put the cat under anesthesia unless absolutely necessary and that it should be a last resort.

Ask for Dr. Frezzo. The wait is usually long because he takes his time with each and every patient. There is none better than Dr. Frezzo.
