24-Hour Emergency Pet Care?

6/22/2009:

Sick pets need quick help!

With all the pets living in Hoboken, it amazes me that there isn’t one single 24-hour veterinary service in town!

By far, the closest 24-hour animal hospital is in NYC. Which isn’t necessarily bad if you have a car, and the emergency is late at night (no traffic) – but could be a problem for those with large pets, or who rely on public transportation:

  • NYC Veterinary Specialists (NYCVS)
    410 West 55th Street (55th Street, just west of 9th Avenue) New York, NY 10019 (map)
    Phone: 212-767-0099 Fax: 212-767-0098

Other NJ options include:

Here are two other options for after-hours emergency pet care.

A place in Lyndhurst, North Jersey Veterniary Emergency Services (http://www.njves.com/html/index.html) opened up in 2006. It is a small office, but it is only 9 miles away and there was no wait at all. Time was of essence, as my cat was in grand mal seizure/diabetic coma for an undetermined amount of time. If I had driven all the way to Fairfield or Oradell, he would have died. Thankfully, they handled the situation quickly and well, and my cat not only lived but thrives.

When it was an emergency, but death didn’t seem as imminent, I drove my cat to Fairfiel to the Animal Emergency and Referral Associates. It was a fortune, but they saved my cat from a “blockage” due to bladder stones. They have a huge, well equipped facility. I would recommend it.

Thanks… my neighbor just got a kitty this past weekend and as cute as she is, I am ultimately more concerned with the health of her other two older cats. I’ll call, thanks again!

Can anyone recommend a place either here in northern NJ or in NYC to get a kitty her shots and whatever else, for a low-cost? thanks.

there was at one time an animal hospital on washington….in the 80s

well, we have more help for domestic animals then humans in this world. …. I see more homeless alcohalics on the streets than domestic animals like cats or dogs.

I agree with mandypaige316. I lived in Oradell and would not use this place. The vets are rude and care only about how much money they can squeeze out of you.
