Wonderful, Kind, and Caring Neighborhood Vet! 10 STARS!! I called Dr. Gower's office on a Saturday around noon, feeling pretty desperate as I had just driven out of the city having arrived in Long Island for what I had hoped would be about week. My 10month old puppy was diagnosed with Kennel Cough and I wanted her to have a healthy place to recover. With the anxiety of packing what we needed for a week, I somehow left the most important thing! the bag with her antibiotics in my apt in the city. Dr. Gower was so kind to take us - literally last minute on a Saturday afternoon as they close at 1pm, and see Tulip and treat her. I had never spoken with him or met him before this. He also called first thing on Monday morning to check on how she was doing. I am so grateful that I now have a vet I can trust and rely for Tulip's health out on here on Long Island, especially with Dr. Gower's experience and kindness. I highly recommend Dr. Gower if you need a vet in the area, if you are a new client or an old one! He's gold!

My boyfriend & I have been bringing buddy, our beautiful sheherd/collie mix to Dr. Gower for 12 years, buddy had his health issues through the years, & Dr. Gower treated buddy with good care, upto the end of his life for our beautiful baby! Dr came to a housecall, 4 shots , & exam, $523 later, only to be told he has a 30% chance of getting better His health declined rapidly, 5 days later I called Dr gower on emergency line, only to be told he was away, & couldn't do anything till Monday. Here we sit , 3 days later, without our beloved pet, & I still have not received call from the dr, or the office. We were very disappointed in the way he handled this matter, knowing how sick buddy really was. The only thing we found comfort in was the wonderful vet that came to house for buddy's end of life care, he was exceptional, too bad we didnt find him 12 yrs ago, think twice before taking your pet here!

Hey Dr. Gower, I wanted to say thank you for seeing my dog so quickly. I appreciate you taking the time with me to go over what was bothering him!

Everyone in the office is great! I’d never bring any of my babies anywhere else! They even followed up to make sure my baby was doing better. They are sympathetic and personable. I’m so thankful!

Very expensive. There is way better vet clinics with reasonable price. Billed me $400 for 2 shots my cat had a simple skin problem problem and they charged us way too much.

I brought both of my cats here last week for an emergency visit after a scare with Advil. I was given an appointment right away and my cats were treated by Dr. Gower and Steve. One cat had to stay a few days for extensive treatment and I was updated multiple times a day on his status by Dr. Gower directly. I am thankful to all of the staff at Woods Ave Animal Clinic for the successful recovery that both of my cats have made!

This hospital will overcharge you for services. You could be looking at a $5000.00 bill. Find another Animal Hospital. There are many other hospitals on Long Island. I won't be paying this ridiculously expensive bill.

Dr. Gower took care of Maleficent today. He explained everything. They checked us in and went over everything before we went in to see Dr. Gower. He was very patient through the entire process and I know Maleficent is in great hands. Great office and the entire team is great. Thank you!!

Dr Gower and staff are most understanding and loving to the animals they care for He is always looking into new and innovative ways to keep our animals healthy and safe My dog may not like it but they do show compassion He has never tried to give our dog somethng that wasnt needed He never pushed to have my dog spade as we were not sure if we wanted to but hff e took the time to answer our questions all the pros and cons that to me is a doctor who cares All vets are not cheap so we by ave the insurance which is a plus for as ny dog owner I would recommed him to anyone who cares abd lives their animals just as much as he does

My cat has diabetes which can be challenging. Dr Gower really worked with us to bring his insulin levels under control. He really took the time to educate and train me on how to give him daily insulin shots at home. He is so great with my fury little kitty. He was very patient and kind. Thank you Doc!! I know we are in good hands.

Been with Dr. Gower for many years, 3 different pets, and he has never failed to provide the right advice or treatment. His office staff, particularly Steve, is fabulous and caring. Great follow up on their part!

Called to ask how much a spay would cost. They gave me a price or 450 plus initial visit for 65. Once I get there they then say that they need to do additional blood and stool tests which would run me an additional 200-300 dollars. While I was sitting there a woman received a bill for 1400 dollars and almost fell out of her chair. I wouldn't even bother writing this if they didn't waste my time and explain all this over the phone before I came in. I obviously left and didn't look back. Next time tell people the full prices before having them waste their time coming to you. I should've listened to some of the other reViews.
