A word about the ER

As the coronavirus pandemic drags on, emergency referral hospitals that were once ready to accept any and all emergencies are now not always necessarily able.
If your pet is having a medical emergency at a time we are not open, or you have been advised by our staff to head to emergency, we recommend calling ahead to make sure that the facility you have chosen can see you.
In an emergency, minutes count. Therefore, we cannot stress the importance of calling ahead enough.
We hope you don't need to use them this holiday season, but, just in case, included below are the phone numbers for the emergency hospitals we recommend.
Oradell Animal Hospital: (201) 262-0010
BluePearl: (201) 527-6699
AERA: (973) 788-0500
Don't stall, always call!


Just for laughs

In all seriousness though, for your pet's sake, please keep the gingerbread houses and ornaments out of the curious reach of furry family members!
