We at Ridgewood Animal Hospital are excited to be moving forward with our expansion. Due to some of the hazards of the work being done as well as limited access to certain areas of the hospital, we will remain curbside for the foreseeable future.

Please call us from the parking lot when you arrive. A Technician or Assistant will greet you to discuss relevant history and admit your pet. The doctor will then come out to your vehicle or call to discuss their exam findings. Thank you for your patience and understanding, we apologize for any inconvenience.

Pet-erinary - Veterinary related events/observances for September 2021

  • Catalyst Council Happy Cat Awareness month - keep our furry felines healthy and happy...parasite free.

  • Animal Pain Awareness month - animals experience pain the same way we do. The most common conversation we have is about osteoarthritis. Ask your vet when to start looking for pain, what it looks like and when to start treating.

  • National Service Dog month - let's show some love to those who serve others.

  • Responsible Dog Ownership Month - as a pet owner, we are responsible for another being's safety and well being. Owning a pet is not a right, it comes with responsibility.

  • National Pet Memorial Day - Sept 12th - remember those who have passed.

  • National Deaf Dog Awareness Week - Sept 19th - 25th - much like their human counterparts, dogs can experience deafness. They are amazingly adaptive and able to compensate with their other senses.

  • World Rabies Day - Sept 28th - Rabies is a VERY serious zoonotic disease (contagious to humans). There is no cure, it is a mercilessly fatal disease in that everything that gets it dies (with a couple of historic mysterious exceptions). All cats and dogs, regardless of whether they are considered "indoor pets" are required by law to be vaccinated for Rabies. Ask a veterinarian about a low cost Rabies clinic near you.

Our products are often LESS EXPENSIVE than online stores after INSTANT REBATE or promotion.
These products are 100% GUARANTEED EFFECTIVE when purchased from a licensed veterinarian.
