I've been taking my pets here for at least 15 years. They are truly caring and always have the best intentions for your pet in the forefront of their minds. I can personally speak for Dr Horowitz and Dr Strianesse and give them both a high recommend.

Dr Horowitz and team are fantastic. I wouldn’t bring my animals anywhere else. He cares about the well-being of my animals not about ripping me off like most other vets. I’ve never met a vet that cared so much.

I spent a lot of time researching the best options for an experience and knowledgeable bulldog veterinarian. Dr. Horowitz and his staff are one of the top pet vets in the tri-state area. They bend over backwards if it's an emergency appointment, they're always responsive to messages and requests, but most importantly the way they treat my pup makes a trip to the vet more like a trip to the dog park. I highly recommend Massapequa pet vet whether it's speaking to administrators, or the doctors, it's always a pleasant experience especially if it's a difficult time for you and your pet.

I could spend hours praising this Hospital and Staff (I will a a future time, as I have a cat there right now), but with my past experiences with 2 ferrets, I wouldn`t bring them to anyone other than Dr. Horowitz.. I had maybe 13 or 14 ferrets since 1997, and most Vets don`t even know the basics of how to treat a ferret..but through my past experiences with Dr. Horowitz, I trust him completely in his advice and recommendations to me, that`s why I drive 30 miles to see him, even though my town has many Vets and Animal Hospitals, of which I`ve been to most of them.. I just wiosh he`d open up a 2nd Hospital closer to me, but he`s so busy, he`s that much in demand, so I understand..10 STARS from me..K. Perry

Brought my daughter in for a check-up. Dr. Lee and Stephanie were great. They made Kahle feel comfortable and relaxed. I am a repeat client and will continue to be.

If I could give this place and its staff 6 stars I would. A little less than a month ago I brought my sweet bunny girl, Guinness, for a routine spay procedure with Dr. Fiore. Unfortunately, rabbits can be very tricky with anesthesia, and when they tried to bring Guinness off of the anesthesia, she went into cardiac arrest. They were able to get her heart going again with CPR and Dopamine, however she was still in rough shape. I went to Pet Vet a few hours later, where I had to decide if I wanted to bring my baby home with me, or send her home with Avery, a vet technician, who I felt was much more equipped to care for Guinness than I was. Although they closed at 7pm, the staff let me stay until around 8pm while I made the tough decision. I ended up sending her home with Avery, who promised to call me every 2 hours with updates starting at 11pm. Unfortunately, around 10:30pm, Avery called me to let me know that Guinness had re-arrested and that although she had performed CPR on her, her heart had slowly stopped. It was extremely hard to deal with, especially since Guinness’ breed (Netherland Dwarf) has a life span of around 7-10 years and I only had 9 months with her. However, I’d like to thank everyone at Massapequa Pet Vet for being SO kind and supportive. Avery was absolutely fantastic, as was Dr. Fiore, who took the time to speak with me on the phone even days after Guinness had passed. Even the front desk staff were so comforting and compassionate. In addition, I received a sympathy card today filled with little messages from the staff. I really appreciate it more than they know, and I will definitely be returning to Pet Vet with any and all future buns. ????????????

If you care for your pet , I highly suggest not going to pet vet. Our dog was brought into pet vet due being in obvious distress, after barley doing a physical exam and just ordering blood work , they decided he had some kind of mild infection, and gave antibiotics . They did not work, in fact our dog was getting worse by the day, we called to bring him back in and they did not call back, and when we were finally able to get them on the phone wanted to run thousands worth of tests. At this point we took our dog for a second opinion, the vet we went to knew exactly what was wrong with our dog within 5 minutes. Our dog was in excruciating pain since before a seeing pet vet. He had a massive growth in his stomach that should have been found by any vet. He was so severe they wanted to put him down that day. He was out down the next day. They also almost broke one of our other dogs legs. All around if you care for your animals well being I highly suggest going somewhere else.

After several trips to the ER and with very little help from my cat's long time Vet, I reached out to Pet Vet. I was given an appointment 18 days later. However, as my cat's condition worsened, I called and asked if they had any cancellations, to please let me know, because I didn't think my cat would survive that long. They immediately accommodated my request and scheduled an emergency visit later that day. Dr. Strianese and the Team performed a complete and thorough evaluation, came up with an interim treatment plan, prescribed some medications and scheduled a follow-up procedure. My cat immediately responded to the meds and I truly believe that he is alive today and continuing to improve, as a direct result of the excellent care he was given at Pet Vet. I am now very confident that his follow-up procedure will proceed uneventfully, thanks to the professionalism demonstrated by the entire Pet Vet team.

Does NOT care about animals at all. Called several times to bring my geriatric dog in knowing it was end of life. This was his vet, he had been there before for check ups and sickness visits. We had just been there the week prior, so the vet was aware of his failing health. We were turned away three separate times. each time I pleaded with staff to fit my dog in as an emergency visit (knowing it would be an end of life visit) and was met with attitude constantly being talked over. We were forced to bring him to an animal hospital where he was put down, by a kinder vet that was more gentle with him than his own regularly seen vet could bother to be. This is an absolutely money making, revolving door vet that truly has no compassion for animals or their well being. Bring your animal else where if you care about them at all.

Was there yesterday with my dog who had a wellness checkup and determined to need an allergy injection. The doctor and her assistant were wonderful to my dog, very thorough and explained everything to me. I was very happy with them and give them my highest recommendation and thanks

Dr. Ned Horowitz is awesome. I found a stray cat in great distress. I was able to get an appointment immediately for the stray to be seen. Dr. Horowitz called me and spent a good deal of time explaining to me what he did to help the stray and what options I had. He was very reasonable about the price due to the cat being a stray. I take my own fur babies here as well. I would definitely suggest Dr. Horowitz and the Massapequa Pet Vet. On a side note I have also brought injured wildlife to the Massapequa Pet Vet and they have always helped out.

Absolutely uncaring!!!! Called with a 2 month old puppy vomiting and shaking that possibly ate something . Said they were booked for the day couldn’t believe it . The good news is there is an animal hospital in Farmingdale . Atlantic Coast Veterinary on route 110 . They said bring her in immediately and it was good that I did . Shame on you Massapequa pet hole ... I’ll spread the word to Stay Away !

I adopted my two kittens Magic Wally and Wonder Walter, on Apr 26, 2021 from All About Cats Rescue. They had severe diahrrea over the next few days. Upon recommendation from my son, I called Massapequa Pet Vet on May 5, and asked for an appt with Dr Strianese. Dr. Strianese was not in that day, but Massapequa gave me a same day appt with Dr.Ginley. She is wonderful. She prescribed an antibiotic and probiotics for my kittens, and prescribed a diet for them. Magic Wally also has a discharge in one eye and Dr Ginley prescribed eye drops. Both kittens appear to be responding to treatment. They are eating well and have a lot of energy. The entire staff from the first phone, meeting the vet tech and Dr. Ginley showed true concern for my kittens. I will be taking Magic and Wonder to Massapequa Pet Vet for follow up and future care. Thank you for your time and service.

Recently had an emergency with one of my dogs and I was pleased with both the staff and doctor responses. Follow-up calls were also reassuring. I am very satisfied with the care I have received for my dogs from all the doctors and staff at Massapequa Pet Vet over the last three years!!

This place is great. They helped my bearded dragon on a short notice, and got him back to normal. They also gave me a few pointers on how to keep him healthy and thrive. Great place and great stafff. The lady donna is great and was definitely caring. ????

Most dogs get anxious as soon as they realize they're going to the Vet, which is sad bec we love our dogs so much, and this is why I am so pleased that Massapequa Pet Vet has been our doggie doctor for more than 10 years! I have full confidence in their knowledge and expertise, plus the whole staff is patient and caring, and the entire office is clean (pretty big these days). You can't go wrong with any of the doctors there, but my dog's favorite is Dr. Snipas! I've been recommending them for years and have never been sorry!

I LOVE Massapequa Pet Vet!!!! I started using them when I got my first rabbit. Dr Horowitz and staff were awesome with her! After taking all of my crazy bunnies there I switched my cats vet (of 8 years) to them as well because they're so FANTASTIC. Everyone there is AMAZING and CARING. Dr Horowitz is an amazing vet and person. He is caring and compassionate and cares about your animal. I highly recommend everyone from the receptionist to the technician to the doctors there.

Wish I could go lower. Please read entire review even though it might be lengthy. I took my cat to Massapequa Pet Vet . due to a condition/infection with her paw. I took the doctor's recommendation and we bandaged the area and put my cat on anti biotics as well as a pain medication. Took my cat back several times for bandage changes, a couple of times the bandage fell off and how to go back to get it redone (not a big deal). This went on for about 2 months. Finally the doctor recommended that we surgically remove the area, we went over a proposal and scheduled a date for the procedure. When I went on the day of the procedure the doctor that originally was going to do the procedure got overruled by the owner Ned Horowitz. Doctor Horowitz that morning decided that he wanted to charge 4x the amount for the procedure. he even called in the other doctor in to discuss and told her she was doing it wrong. I told him I would go to another vet. Every time you visit or call this place you will get different information or a different cost than originally discussed. He claims that he is only doing this in the best interest of the animal, but really only cares about the money. he asked me and I quote "how much can you spend on this". He will now respond to this post saying all the things I did wrong and how I am a horrible pet owner. He might even try to get this post taken down. But the fact of the matter is. He changed the procedure to charge me more money the day of the procedure. He tries to prey on your emotions to increase his own bank account. Terrible business practice, bad ethics, do not go here.

I’ve been a customer for more than 2 years with multiple animals. Today was the final straw. Throughout the Covid times they’ve managed to work out how I can calm my 2 dogs while protecting everyone’s health. Today they must have not bothered to check their own notes and didn’t bother to let me know for my safety they had to take my dog in without me. I understand this may sound like no big deal to many. If that’s the case move on and assume they are fine for you. I’ll just say that on the last visit the vet and Tech commented how pleasant it was since the dog was calming down and didn’t need to be sedated anymore and what they’d taught me in assisting them made the whole experience much better for them and the dog. No more need for sedation or to drug the dog. When I tried to appeal I was told no exceptions and when I asked to speak to the practice owner He shuffled me off and refused to speak to me. Maybe this is fine for many but since these dogs are treated like my family and I spare no expense in making sure they get regular treatment I’ve decided to go elsewhere. To be fair the doctors at this facility have always been good to my pets and reasonable with my wife and I. That said, I don’t spend my money with people who won’t even give me the courtesy of a conversation after being a solid customer for years. Hope this helps. Robert.

We recently rescued a beautiful little pitbull mix from a local rescue. She's a healthy girl and we needed a local vet to bring her in for her first exam and well visit. From the time we walked in and were greeted by their amazing front desk staff, to the quick rooming, we were very happy with Massapequa Pet Vet! Dr. Christine Ginley was so warm and caring for our girl and she made sure to be gentle and loving. I would recommend Dr. Ginley to anyone in the Massapequa area to care for their loved ones. She is a veterinarian that truly exudes love for her fur patients. Bravo Massapequa Pet Vet!

Honestly, PetVet is a staple to the south shore community. They're always professional when helping me and my family. From the helpful reception team and wonderful vet techs all the way to the overly accommodating doctors. In my most recent visit my cat (2y/o) had gotten sick and my boyfriend started to become anxious (as we all do when our furry friends don't feel well) so we called a little bit before 9 and the manager of reception was so understanding and helpful and squeezed us in for an afternoon appointment. When we got there we were quickly checked in by the lovely people at the front desk and then shortly after escorted to a room. There the vet tech and the doctor checked out my buddy, I was honest about how much money i was able to spend that day (as the only down side to PetVet is there's no payment plans) and they were super helpful in making my cat feel better within my budget. They took the time to explain everything from the procedure to his aftercare medications to me (and i mean took the time! lol) but they also gave me really good advice on how to make my cat healthier, and i really appreicated that. I know this is super long but i just think sometimes its easy to notice only the bad things about a doctors appointments because of all the anxiety and stress that surrounds it so i took a month to reflect on it and i really do want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to PetVet. Thank you to Steph, Connor, and Christina from reception you guys are awesome. Thank you to the vet tech that we had that day (i'm so sorry i can't remember your name but you were so sweet and funny!) And a huge Thank You to the incredible Dr. Ginley , Jimmy is doing much better and my boyfriend and I are so grateful.

Massapequa pet vet accomodated me and our bearded dragon on an emergency visit. While the diagnosis and prognosis was not what I hoped for (no fault of the doctor or staff), Dr. Horowitz was very sensitive and compassionate towards me and my pet. He was honest and frank and clearly explained my options and costs for each procedure. I have the utmost respect and trust for Dr. Horowitz. He definitely cares about pets of all kinds, and it shows. I will return to this facility for future veterinary needs. Don't hesitate to make an appointment.

The team at Massapequa Pet Vet went above and beyond to fit us in on the day prior to Thanksgiving for an emergency although we are not regular patients of theirs. Everyone I dealt with from the first phone call, to the follow up calls was not only pleasant, but they all seemed genuinely concerned about my cat's health. I dealt with Dr. Fiore and her bedside manner exceeded my expectations. I am a nervous talker so I'm sure I was driving her crazy but she remained very kind and informative throughout treatment and even cracked some jokes to make me feel comfortable. You can tell this entire team genuinely cares about your animals and understands that they are family. If you love your pet and you live in the Massapequa area, this is without a doubt the veterinary you should frequent.

I am very disappointed in Massapequa Pet Vets Policy on having to leave my and my Sons dog all day from 9am in a cage, stressed out even though the dog is in heart failure to get an echocardiogram. This may be what is best for your business but absolutely NOT what is best for the patient! My Son was given a prescription to take our dog directly to the facility for an appointment instead of leaving him there all day, however they do not answer their phone. Change your policy! You ABSOLUTELY CAN call for the patient the day of before they arrive as soon as you know they are coming. This IS in your control. NO EXCUSES.
