From the outside, Queens Animal Hospital might look like it was recently converted from a family home. In fact, it's been an animal hospital since 1955, and the humble design scheme was deliberate: what pet wouldn't want to climb the steps of a friendly-looking house filled with friendly people? Inside, they'll find a staff headed by Dr. Beshoy Rafla, who specializes in dogs and cats but also welcomes birds, reptiles, and other small exotic pets. He and his veterinary techs perform a wide array of services: in addition to standard checkups, there are facilities for surgery, dental care, grooming, and, for dogs, even boarding in quarters that include indoor and outdoor runs. Pets also don't need to leave the grounds for x-rays, ultrasounds, or EKGs, and their humans can even opt for microchipping to keep them safe if they ever get lost in a funhouse's hall of mirrors.
