Long Island Best Vet and Amazing Staff – Southdown Animal hospital in huntington ny is by far the best vet place . They have a amazing , caring , and professional staff from the minute you work thru the door till you leave the office . they not only made myself and my fiance feel secure but they made my 13 yr old AMSTAFF feel like he was at home they were so kind and caring . Secondly , i have to mention the vet himself Dr. Brodrick he came into the exam room introduce himself to me and even to my dog rubbed his head and gave him a hug which i thought was very compassionate. He gave him a very through exam. Most of all we were working with a limted budget and the bill came to almost double of what we had the doctor was so kind and took money off the bill and lets us pay the remainder of the bill a week following his surgery. i mean you dont find people out like him and his staff anymore .iwould highly recommend this place to anyone even if you dont live the area it defintely worth the drive . THANK YOU SOUTH DOWN HOSPITAL for helping us and our jack (dog) in our time of need......
Great vet – I was told about southdown animal hospital from my sister who has a 11 year old english bulldog (Austin) Austin was having isses that he was going to another vet for. That vet made him so bad that they told my sister just to take him home and make him comfitable since he is 11. She took him to southdown and the DOC treated him and now Austin is like a new pup. SO my sister gave me his name so i can bring my two puppies there. After meeting with him and his staff we decided to have our dogs fixed at this location. DOC explained everything for us. When my bullmastiff damaged her stiches from jumping on and off the coach we called him on a Sunday when they where closed, He came in and treated her. She had to stay for a few days. The staff there kept us infromed on her progress and even after days home they called to make sure my two puppies are doing good. This vet's office is NOT about making money they care for pets.

TERRIBLE TERRIBLE PLACE. WHAT PLACE LOSES YOUR PET? AND THEN CALLS YOU 3HOURS AFTER
Loving Animal Clinic – Dear Dr. Broderick and his beautiful support Team,
Thank you, Dr. Broderick, Yvonne, Tomek, Felix, Zione and Michele for averting a sure crisis and returning Caesar to health.
Casear, our 12 year old Rottweiler suffered in silence several days with a VERY swollen left rear leg. I thought it was a sprain, others said worse. It turns out it may have been a bite of that a spider I saw. It's a mystery.
FORTUNATELY, we met Dr. Broderick and his support staff; gentle, affectionate and thorough. Under their truely loving, deliberate and probably round-the-clock care, Caesar went from a precarious condition to shiny health. The nourishment and medical treatment he received have returned him to a state of health that I have not seen in years. He's not even shedding! His appetite is big, his bowel movements are gorgeous and he's even a little naughty now and then.
Dr. Broderick, we sing your praises!!
Wih love and admiration,
Mary and Hideoki Hagiwara
wonderful animal hospital – I contacted Dr. Geoffrey Broderick for the first time 30 years ago at the Animal Clinic at Southdown, 229 Wall St, Huntington, N.Y, with regard to a cat that belonged to my sister. The cat was only a little over a year old and had suddenly developed breathing problems. We had gone to a local veterinarian who took an x-ray and determined that the cat had cancer and should be put to sleep. In light of the cat’s young age and seemingly otherwise good general health, we decided to seek a second opinion. We selected Dr. Broderick because of his reputation for treating animals more holistically.
I obtained the x-ray taken by the first veterinarian that had examined the cat and brought it to Dr. Broderick. Reading the exact same x-ray, Dr. Broderick determined that the cat did not have cancer, and that what appeared to be a mass was actually the cats intestines jammed up into the chest cavity. He asked us if the cat had been hit by a car. That was quite possible since he was an outdoor cat and had come home banged up recently. Dr. Broderick surgically moved all of the cat’s intestines from the chest cavity and placed them back were they belonged in the abdominal cavity. The cat spent several days under Dr. Broderick’s care, drinking water with Vitamin C. The cat recovered with no complications returned to our family and enjoyed many years of good health, living to a ripe old age.
Thirty-something years later we are returning to Dr. Broderick with a dog that we obtained several years ago under some rather unusual circumstances. The breed is known to have skin problems and no other veterinarian have dealt with it to our satisfaction. I recalled our experiences with Dr. Broderick so long ago and using internet access, determined that he was still in practice at the same location! Needless to say we immediately made an appointment for our dog who is now receiving the same high quality care that my sisters cat did thirty years ago. If we are ever asked to recommend a veterinarian, Dr. Broderick will receive our highest recommendation.
Dr Broderick and Cornucopia are amazing! – Dear Dr. Broderick and Southdown Animal Clinic Staff,
I want to thank you for the care you have provided my dogs over the last 20 years.
I first met you with Molly, my 11 year old beagle. Diagnosed with terminal liver cancer, Molly was not able to keep food down. I searched for a holistic veterinarian and treatment for canine cancer. My research led me to your practice, one of a few holistic veterinarians in the northeast. I gave Molly your dog food and the Super Food and Phyto Food supplements. She was able to keep food down. Her affect improved considerably. We then gave weekly vitamin C drip therapy. Molly lived a quality life with energy and no pain; she passed when she was 13.
Chessie, my most recent beagle, is almost 16. Abused and neglected her first 2 years, she was rescued and I adopted her. I followed your regimen of combined dry and canned Cornucopia. I sprinkled Super Food and Phyto Food supplements on her food intermittently. Always an athletic dog, I noticed at age 13, she slept a lot and no longer had the energy for those walks, (runs for her), she had always craved. At her annual checkup you reminded me of the importance of daily dosages of Super Food and Phyto Food supplements. Chessie was developing symptoms of renal failure as well as an enlarged heart.
I had always added shredded carrots to her food, but Yvonne guided me to add other vegetables to her diet. This led me to create the following eating regime for Chessie: a steamed vegetable medley heavy on sweet potato, butternut squash, and broccoli. I rotated in other seasonal vegetables also. In my Magic Bullet blender, I placed the hot veggies and added a raw organic egg, carrot, apple, and lettuce. I used chicken or turkey broth and/or apple cider for the liquid. Sometimes EVOO, butter, and mashed flax seed were added. The consistency of loose mashed potatoes, the vegetable medley was a complement for home cooked chicken or turkey meat cubes. Then I added the half teaspoon of Super Food and Phyto Food supplements.
Within a month or 6 weeks, I noticed a remarkable change. Her affect became responsive and alert.
She walked 1 to 2 miles almost daily and had a bounce, sometimes run to her gate.
For her next annual you emphasized Chessie having two daily doses of the supplements. Her blood work indicated evidence of some renal failure, and an enlarged heart. But her affect continued to be good and she continued to enjoy her long walks.
This August for her annual, Chessie's blood indicated slight improved function of her kidney, and her heart appeared smaller. Her affect was alert.
I have had several beagles and the longest life span was 13 years and a few months. They died of cancer and renal failure. Chessie to this day gives me joy to watch her swim, trot on trails, pursue a scent, and beg me for those long walks.
I wish to thank you, and your wonderful staff. I believe your Cornucopia foods, Super Food and Phyto Food supplements, and the holistic medicine you practice has made Chessie's longevity possible.
With love and sincere gratitude,
WORST PLACE EVER! – First off, this Doctor came Highly recommended. Little did they know the only thing he cares about is pushing his "BRAND NAME FOOD LINE" Cornucopia.
This JERK actually told me the food I was feeding my dog was killing him slowly. So, after the recent IAMS Scare I bought some of his dry food. When I brought it home my dog would not eat it. Then, I brought it back. The good Doctor told me to STARVE THE DOG Until he would be so hungry that he would have NO CHOICE but to eat his crap!
There are pictures on the wall with him and Mother Theresa. Do you think she knew he would want me to starve my dog so that the good doctor could make a buck off of me?
I don't trust him and importantly I don't like him! I would recommend going somewhere else!!!
Southdown Animal Clinic and Dr Broderick – My two dogs and I had been clients of Dr. Broderick on and off for the past six years. I want to extend my heartfelt thanks and gratitude that we were, in that moment, BLESSED, to have found this charming, country-like environment where grace and serenity ruled. I, personally, was going through a most trying time, when my beautiful sheepdog became ill with an angry ear infection that was most painful to her; on that day it was almost unbearable for me to handle one more difficult task, and I was a bit frightened of what may have been wrong with her. When I met Dr. Broderick and his staff I was immediately relieved and put at ease, most of all, by the total calm and compassion that was shown to me. My dog was examined with great care and gentleness and I was so moved by it all. Dr. Broderick displayed most unusual kindness, conveyed vast knowledge that he shared with me regarding what was going on with my dog, and ultimately assured me that all will be well beginning NOW. When I later picked my dog up from a day of treatment that was intense but complete (due to the fact that I was financially unable to afford an overnight stay for her) I was given precise instructions on follow-up care to keep her on the road to complete recovery. Understand for me, that at the end of this particular day, it was the most horrific one in my life. I was distraught and exhausted and most unwilling to bear ONE MORE THING. I got my beautiful dog back and when I went to pay the bill I saw a whole long write-up of what was done to her in treatment of her case. When I looked at the end of the sheet for a grand total I saw the words (written personally) "Gift from Doc" I looked at "Doc" with utter astonishment, not comprehending right away what that meant. Dr. Broderick just smiled quietly, asked me if I was alright, and told me to just go home, love my children and tend to my dog. When I tearfully asked him why he would "gift" all this to me (and a big bag of Cornucopia dog food to boot!), he simply replied with a shrug”Because I can." Over the course of the next few years, this clinic took care of my two healthy dogs. Always with kindness and exact professionalism. My dogs thrived on Superfood and Phytofood and I must tell you that I am, too -I take these powders daily. I just wanted to express to everyone who has animals they love and care for that there are veterinarians who love and care for them as much as we do, and Dr. Broderick is a most brilliant, shining example of what pure compassion and humanitarianism can look like.
STAY FAR AWAY – I normally wouldn't waste my time doing this, but I feel very strongly about advising people to stay away. Here's a list of reasons why:
1. Dr Broderick took advantage of my age (20 but I look 17) to charge me for rediculous things. Like the dog food.
2. He blamed me for not knowing things he did NOT tell me, such as needing a whole other round of shots prior to getting my dog nuetered. He lectured me for 20 minutes about that, which was his staffs fault.
3. They ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS make me wait. Even when I let them know I need to go in the time of my scheduled appointment.
4. They let me make an appointment when they knew the doctor wouldnt be in b/c he was getting A MASSAGE !
5. They told me I wasn't allowed to come back to clinic, which is when you can get shots cheap, because I had to cancel the morning of because I didn't have time to wait a half hour BECAUSE I WAS GETTING SURGERY. They did not care that it was their fault I had to cancel.
6. The majority of the people there are very rude.
7. The doctor did not even see me one time when my dog had an infection from when they nuetered him. He suggested it was my fault for not giving my dog the phyto food when I called, and gave me an attitude when I called the emergency line...even though he always says "Call us whenever you need!" The secretary at the desk saw my dog when I came in, told me the vet was too busy to see me, and she gave me antibiotics that cost $45. Three days later I brought my dog back for a check up, had to wait a half hour (as usual), and the vet said my dog was fine... which he should have been able to tell me three days earlier and save me the $45, but he was "too busy" to see me during my scheduled appointment. Oh.
As you can see. They have no idea what they are doing. They are probably only in business b/c they over price and somehow convince everyone to buy their awful dog food.. which my dog threw up the first time he ate. I do not reccommend them to ANYONE, EVER.
Stay Away – I do not recommend Southdown Animal Clinic at all, stay away. Dr Broderick intentionally performed unnecessary tests to raise the bill to more then $1200 for a simple cold. They insisted on using anesthesia to take a simple xray and wanted to charge me more $200/xray. The overall experience was very similar to a visit to a used car lot, where sales person is very pushy and arrogant and just wants to make as much money as possible with no regard for anything else. At southdown animal clinic the Doctor will insist that you purchase his brand of cat food and if you refuse to do so or question any of his inflated fees he gets very defensive and rude. The same attitude follows through to his wife and daughter.
