Somers Animal Hospital

At Somers Animal Hospital we understand that your pet is a very special part of your family. Every day we strive to provide you with the very best veterinary care possible. We take great care to do this in a manner that lessens, or eliminates, the stress you and your pet may feel when coming to the veterinarian.
By providing longer appointments, our doctors have the time needed to place you and your pet at ease. This is the time when we come to know the individual pet and discuss the questions or concerns you have about your pet's well being.
To enable us to continue to bring you the most advanced medical and surgical care possible, we consistently invest in the training of our doctors and staff. We provide the latest technology and diagnostics allowing our veterinarians to quickly identify and treat ailments, keeping illness as brief and pain free as possible.
Whether you are here with a sick pet or a check-up, from the time you arrive, you and your pet will be given the individual caring attention you both deserve.
