We at Ridgewood Animal Hospital want to continue to provide optimal care while also helping to slow the spread of COVID-19. As a veterinary medical facility, we are considered an essential business to our community, so our office will remain open for our typical weekly operating hours (possibly reduced Saturday or Sunday hours).

​​​​​​​We are providing curbside service only and encouraging drop off appointments in order to comply with social distancing and to reduce lobby traffic. Please call us from the parking lot when you arrive, an assistant will greet you to admit your pet and discuss relevant history. The doctor will then come out to your vehicle or call to discuss their exam findings.

  • National Heartworm Awareness Month - Heartworm is a devastating, yet preventable disease spread by mosquitos. The mosquito's bite spreads microscopic baby worms (microfilaria) which mature and live in the heart. There are various options to prevent this deadly disease. Indoor dogs are not immune or safe from mosquitos, flies and mosquitos can get inside screen doors very easily, and most "indoor dogs" are not strictly indoor. Going outside for a few minutes is long enough to get bitten. Cats are not immune to this parasite, ask your veteriarian about prevention.
