Client Testimonials & Reviews

"My senior dog and I paid a visit to Animal ER tonight for treatment regarding a reaction to the vaccinations he received earlier in the day (from his regular vet). Dr. Sorrentino and her entire staff were beyond amazing. They went above and beyond for my dog and he walked out feeling brand new! In regards to price, they were not unreasonable for EMERGENCY services. I also met the resident clinic cat, Orange Juice, who donates blood to her fellow felines in need. I would 100% recommend this ER to animals needing immediate attention. 5-star service! Thank you so much for everything!"

"I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone at animal ER again, from the bottom of my heart for always taking such amazing care of my babies when they need it. There is no place I trust more with my fur babies than AER. I am forever grateful for all you do. If anyone wants to ensure their fur babes are in the best hands, under the most watchful eyes, bring them to AER! You all are rock stars and don't get the appreciation you all so much deserve. I can't thank you enough for how much you have done for our family. From the empathetic sweet receptionists to the knowledgeable kind-hearted techs, to the experienced compassionate doctors, all of you are so greatly appreciated. Thank you."

"We took our sweet baby girl Izzy in on Monday night in a comatose state after ingesting way too many Advil. I can’t open a childproof bottle, but she did. Everyone we came in contact with was wonderful and so caring! They sent us updates and pictures every few hours which made us feel so much better. They were so good at letting us come visit and answered any question we had. Our 5-pound baby would not be alive today without the loving care she received from this terrific staff! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
