Dr. Keith Niesenbaum and the staff of Great Neck Dog & Cat Hospital are on hand six days a week to provide urgent care assistance, emergency procedures, dog day care, boarding, and even house calls. In addition to cats and dogs, select practitioners can also treat rabbits, reptiles, and pocket pets.
The bright-blue awning hanging outside Queens Animal Health & Emergency makes it hard to miss; it's blend of Eastern and Western medical treatments make the clinic hard to forget. Its veterinarians are well versed in general-wellness care for their clients' four-legged friends and use acupuncture to manage a variety of chronic issues, such as arthritis, asthma, and the anxiety that stems from trying to bark in Morse code. With its boarding services, staff members care for pets while their owners are on vacation, and grooming sessions keep animals looking their best.
Though doggie doors and automatic feeders offer stay-at-home pups some autonomy, they can't replace the attention of a loving owner and socialization with other dogs. NY Puppy Club gives their canine visitors the attention they need while their owners are away, either during daycare visits or long-term vacation stays. Two spacious play rooms match pups with playmates of their own size. Smaller dogs can take turns riding down a plastic slide, while larger dogs can cooperate on toppling the treat refrigerator. Inside the club's 16 boarding rooms, dogs can sleep on plush beds amid soft lighting and music. At the daycare's sister shop, owners can peruse a selection of foods and toys, or consult with the onsite veterinarian.
