5. At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?
Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 6 months of age. Your pet is given an exam prior to surgery to help determine whether your pet is healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery.

6.  What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?
This is a blood test that is run here in the clinic prior to surgery. It tests the organ functions, blood counts and clotting function of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.

7. How long do the sutures stay in after my pet’s surgery?
Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed 10-14 days following the surgery.

8.  Is it a good idea to let my pet have at least one litter?
No, there is no advantage to letting your pet have one litter. However there are plenty of advantages to having you pet spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the likelihood of prostate cancer, preventing spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.

9.  Do you board pets?
Yes, we do boarding for our clients and future clients. We offer boarding space for both dogs and cats. We also can board birds and other small animals, but you will be required to bring your own cage and food for your pet.

10.  What are your kennels like?
Our dog kennels are all indoor. The dogs are walked 2-3 times daily while they are boarding. The cat boarders are housed in a separate area away from the dogs. Blankets and food are provided for our boarders, but you are always welcome to bring your own.

  • “We could not recommend a better veterinary clinic. Dr. Paul Schwartzreich and the staff at New Rochelle Animal Hospital provided the care, understanding, and compassion that our cat, Sam, required. We're so happy to have such a dedicated group in our area. Many thanks to each and every one of the Doctors and Staff for their commitment to our furry friends. We can't express how much we appreciate you all being there for Sam."

  • “Very impressed with Dr. Schwartzreich. I like the consistency of a vet who knows his business, treats you fairly and is patient and compassionate with my animal (who is my best friend). Dr. Schwartzreich fills a big void in New Rochelle for a competent Vet. My dog is older, I feel comfortable knowing that I have someone I can count on with issues that arise as my dog ages. Highly recommend!"

    – Mark H., New Rochelle, NY
  • "From the very first visit, Dr. Schwartzreich improved the quality of life of our dog, Coco, and possibly saved her life. If you are looking for a compassionate vet that truly cares about the well-being of your pet, please make an appointment with him and his wonderful staff."
