Thanks for taking care of Mercedez tonight!! She has a lot of aunts and uncles across the world that love her veeeeery much!!
Thank you to all of the incredibly compassionate, knowledgeable & caring staff at VMCLI. On July 24th-25th, you helped save our little Chloe's life. We are so grateful.
Dr Brodsky is currently seeing my cat for lymphoma. I've been many many places with my cat through out this horrible situation and have never seen such amazing service and genuine care. I've come here multiple times already and have yet to see someone that wasn't extremely friendly and kind. Everyone has a great attitude and while my cat isn't ever happy to go to the vet, he is the most comfortable here and it's no surprise considering the love and affection the staff shows to the animals. It isn't the cheapest place but you are paying for a state of the art facility and doctors who are at the top of their field. My Tyler was on his last leg when I brought him here and has since been responding very well to treatment and is back to his normal self for now. I would whole heartedly recommend Dr Brodsky for anyone in a similar situation in need of an exceptional veterinary oncologist.
On my last visit the office staff was very pleasant to deal with and answered all my questions in a patient manner. Dr Carmichael was also exellent and showed concern for my dog's problem.
This hospital is absolutely stunning.
I recently came here for the event for Joey the Brentwood Dog. It was a rainy day but they were prepared by setting up tents outside with hot cocoa and such. We had to briefly go inside to pay our donation. The inside is gorgeous. It resembles the waiting room of an actual hospital but nicer.
The staff is extremely friendly, as well. I would definitely bring my animals here, in case of emergency, but luckily we have the Nassau version of this hospital closer to us.
While going to the emergency vet is never a great thing, I can not say enough kind words for VMCLI!!
I recommend calling if you plan on going in on a emergency basis after midnight, as the front door is locked for everyone's safety. (this was something I noticed during my time there..)
Last Summer, my eldest cat got really sick, and since he was an indoor cat, he didn't have a regular vet (yes, bad Mommy) but we took him down to VMCLI to be looked at since he was really weak... Turns out, after a round of testing that he had cancer. We didn't know how long my little furball had, but VMCLI made sure to tell me that they were there for us at any time and made us feel comfortable with our situation.
I was also touched by the sweet sympathy card that was mailed to us after the decision to put our little furball to sleep was made.
Thank you VMCLI for being there for us when we needed you the most!!
Despite sad times here I have to still give this place a good review. My husband and I were here before our wedding. I came in the middle of June because my cat was unexpectedly sick and had trouble breathing. They took an X-Ray, it turned out she had a tumor no one knew about. They were honest with me they told me it was better to put her to sleep because surgery wouldn't help her at this point and the tumor would grow back anyway. They had lovely rooms in the back where they put animals to sleep. Sadly this place is used to animals dying, lots of people come here as a last resort knowing they could save their pets but it's likely in a bad case they'll have to be put down.
Ten days later I was back here again when my husband's cat was diagnosed with stomach cancer. He made the choice to put her to sleep even though it was painful. Her cancer was so advanced the vets said she would just be lacking energy and all they could do was put on her some pills to decrease her pain.
Both times the staff was really awesome, very concerned and they did the best they could for us despite our losses and pain. I was so upset and crying hysterically over the loss of my cat a few staff members made a point to tell me I did all I could and I was a good cat mommy.
I hope I don't have to be back here for a long time but this is definitely a nice place to say goodbye to your beloved animal if that's what you have to do.
We were very pleased with the care our dog Boss received during and emergency. The staff, receptionist, and everyone we came in contact with were very kind, patient and cared not only for Boss, but they cared about us too.
