Is There an Animal Doctor in the House?

From physical therapy to brain surgery, a Yonkers-based animal hospital delivers first-rate treatments for your sick pets.

Imagine a hospital with equipment and services so state-of-the-art, they almost sound sci-fi: operating rooms for brain surgery, stem-cell therapy programs, underwater treadmills, the “CyberKnife.” We bet you didn’t picture a hospital full of cats and dogs—but that’s exactly what it’s like at the Animal Specialty Center in Yonkers.

The veterinary hospital boasts an astounding 16,000 square feet (by comparison, the new emergency department at Phelps Memorial Hospital Center is 18,000 square feet) and is up and running around the clock for emergency, outpatient, and inpatient services. The hospital is staffed with 22 board-certified, emergency veterinarians and specialists including neurologists and oncologists. “We have on staff one of the few veterinary surgeons in the world who does brain surgery on pets,” says spokesperson Joan Quinn. “And we have a new surgeon who is one of the few in the country who does minimally invasive fracture repairs.”

The center’s human resources are almost overshadowed by its array of technology. The center maintains advanced diagnostic equipment, including an MRI and CT scanner. (Yes, CT scans for cats.)  Its physical rehabilitation department—staffed with a bona-fide veterinary physical therapist (see page 76)—helps pets recover from surgery and traumatic injuries with PT equipment ranging from underwater treadmills to balance boards. And its oncology department boasts a CyberKnife to perform radio surgery on cancerous tumors—as well as stem-cell therapy for selected patients. “We are the only medical center in the entire world with a cyber knife for animals,” says Quinn. “It allows us to treat certain types of tumors non-invasively, by targeting the tumors with radiation to shrink or destroy them. In many cases, the results are successful.”

The Animal Specialty Center averages more than 15,000 visits annually. For more info, visit its website, animalspecialtycenter.com.

HOW OUR VETS WERE CHOSEN

This list is excerpted from the inaugural topVets list, a peer review survey company. How was it gathered? topVets, based in Augusta, Georgia, asked hundreds of veterinarians to name their peers who stand out, taking into consideration years of experience, continuing education, manner with animals, use of new techniques and technologies, and, of course, physical results. Then it tallied the submissions. There are fine veterinarians who are not on this list. A vet’s inclusion on this list is based on the subjective judgments of his or her fellow veterinarians. Still, it’s a good starting point for finding a doctor for your pet.
