Veterinary Hospital in Scarsdale Leads the Pack with Compassionate Care and Veterinary Services
Central Animal Hospital located in Scarsdale is committed to the health and well being of all animals in the surrounding neighborhoods. We have eight experienced, full-time veterinarians on staff, as well as elite status as one of the few veterinary hospitals accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association. Only 15 percent of small animal hospitals in North America hold this honor and we are proud to be one of them. We are also proud of the fact that our veterinarians have been voted among the top vets in Westchester County and were featured in Westchester Magazine.
Our Motto is "Your Pet's Health is Our Primary Concern" - and We Prove It Daily at Our Animal Clinic
It is not the publicity, however, that makes us stand out - it is our staff. Our veterinarians are dedicated, compassionate professionals who are current and active members of several professional veterinary associations and societies. They are authorized to perform international health examinations and qualified and experienced in a vast array of animal medical care at our veterinary hospital.
Our state-of-the-art animal clinic diagnostic tools include x-rays, blood analyzers, endoscopes and ultrasounds for detecting diseases, allergies and systemic problems. We cover all pet health care needs, from major surgery to dentistry, from spays and neuters to chemotherapy. During surgery, our patients are carefully monitored utilizing cardio-monitors, pulseoximeters and EKG machines to ensure their safety.
Even pet vaccinations and routine check-ups are beyond routine at Central Animal Hospital, where we are always eager to serve pets in Scarsdale and the surrounding Westchester communities. Our in-house pharmacy carries topical applications, prescription medications, and flea, tick and heartworm preventatives. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
For pet owners going on vacation, we offer our full-service boarding facility. Licensed by Westchester County, our boarding facility offers a home away from home with a special quiet room for our feline boarders. Trained and licensed veterinary technicians who live on the premises are here to watch over the pets in our animal clinic and provide needed care.
Our website also provides valuable information for pet owners. Shopping for pet medication is easy through our online pharmacy and internet store; simply fill out the form and we will have the items ready at our veterinary hospital for pickup or mailed to you. The library on our site includes articles on grooming, seasonal care, pet owner tips and a newsletter archive with a sign-up option.
Our online photo gallery includes pictures of our patients, facility and staff members. A list of trusted resources is also available on our site in case a pet owner needs more information. Pets and pet owners in Scarsdale and the surrounding communities can benefit from information from various organizations, such as the AVMA, AAHA, or watch videos from the Cornell University Feline Health Center.
