To accomplish this, we call forth the following core values that dictate how we endeavor to achieve our mission and serve our patients and clients every day.
Peace of Mind
At Long Island Veterinary Specialists, the well-being of your pet is the primary concern of all members of the hospital. Our team of trained veterinary professionals has worked together for years providing skilled specialty care to our patients and peace of mind to their owners. We are dedicated to shortening the recovery time for your pet while offering the best opportunity for a return to full function.
The facilities at Long Island Veterinary Specialists are the most advanced available in veterinary medicine today. Much of the equipment can be found in human medical centers, delivering the same high-level care. It is our goal to be at the forefront of veterinary specialist care by employing the latest developments in both human and veterinary medicine, so we can offer the best treatments available for your pet. Patients are kept in specially designed hospital wards and are cared for by our 24-hour support team. Frequent consultations with the leaders in both veterinary and human medicine ensure the utmost care is offered to our patients every day.
Members of Long Island Veterinary Specialists work in full cooperation with your pet’s family veterinarian. Your skilled family veterinarian recognizes that sometimes it is necessary to utilize the advanced services available at our hospital. Our specialists will work closely with your family veterinarian, sharing information as part of a team of professionals to provide optimal care for your pet. Please note that we do not perform any routine health procedures nor do we stock any vaccines. These essential services are best provided by your family veterinarian during your pet’s annual health care visits.
