Elizabeth Veterinary Clinic is a patient-first animal hospital. In every aspect we are outside the box from the conventional animal hospitals. We are located in a large Victorian house with the idea of making both patients and owners feel they are at home and cared for like family. Our staff are all animal fanatics and there is a trickle down affect with every animal they treat. Many animals that are frightened in other animal hospitals are able to relax here. We have intentionally remained small so that we can offer very personal care to every pet, and address the concerns of every owner. No one is just a number here.
We are a full service animal hospital with state of the art equipment. We offer wellness care including vaccinations, puppy and kitten medicine, surgery, dentistry, emergencies, hospitalization and behavioral counselling. We do the majority of our own blood work on site and have digital X-ray equipment so that each animal’s medical needs can be diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible. Ill animals are seen the same day and emergencies are accepted on a walk in basis.
We are located in Roselle NJ which is convenient to most of Union County. We service pets from Roselle, Cranford, Westfield, Linden, Springfield, Summit, Roselle Park, Elizabeth, and Scotch Plains, Warren and Lake Hopatcong to name a few. We are always amazed at how far some people will drive with a cat or dog to have a different experience. Our hospital cages are in the center of the Victorian house where every animal is seen every time a staff member passes through. Pets are walked in a back yard with flowers and fruit trees. We have a kitchen upstairs for special needs diets and a back yard full of toys and rehabilitation equipment. Our acupuncture suite has two beds where the owners can relax with their pets if they choose, enjoy the sound of flowing water and an ultrasonic vapor diffuser with healing oils.
