What is a Veterinary Specialist?

You and your pet can be referred to a veterinary specialist if diagnosing or treating your pet’s health problem requires specialized treatments or intensive medical care. The specialist’s expertise compliments that of your veterinarian and it is important that you, your veterinarian and the veterinary specialists work together to provide the best care for your pet.

The specialties that we currently offer, that support you and your primary veterinarian, are Dermatology, Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology, Physical Rehabilitation, Radiation Oncology, Surgery, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Emergency and in-patient care.

Do I need to make an appointment?

The Animal Specialty Center accepts emergencies 24/7 please call ahead or check in via WAIT WHILE. Appointments for Specialty services can be made by calling (914) 457-4000.

What should I bring to my pet's first appointment

It is important that we understand the entire medical history of your pet. Please email any records that you have, in addition to those that we have requested from your primary veterinarian, to [email protected]

If I bring reports from previous testing, will these tests need to be repeated?

There may be times where tests need to be repeated, especially if an abnormality was found, the tests are not recent, or if you have noticed any changes in your pet since the tests were taken.

Where do I take my pet for follow-up care?

Animal Specialty Center works in collaboration with your primary veterinarian to provide the best comprehensive care for your pet. We will fax or email a summary after each visit to keep them up-to-date on your pet’s status. Follow-up visits can be done at Animal Specialty Center or with your primary veterinarian depending on your pet’s condition and advice of our Specialists and Emergency Veterinarians

Can you make a diagnosis or prescribe medications without examining my pet?

Many health symptoms can point to a variety of conditions or diseases, so your pet needs to be examined in order to provide a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. It is also both unethical and illegal to write prescriptions for a pet with which we have not developed a proper client-veterinarian-patient relationship. However, after our thorough examination of your pet, we will be able to follow through with treatment and prescribe any necessary medications.
