Compassionate and Collaborative Care at the World’s Largest Non-Profit Animal Hospital

We continue this legacy today as the world’s largest non-profit animal hospital and the premier veterinary hospital in New York City, maintaining the only Level 1 Trauma Center in the tri-state area and the highest standards of care as part of our American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accreditation.
