I have been a dog owner all of my life, and this is absolutely the best Veterinary practice I have ever used. Everyone, from the Vets, to the techs, to the front desk people are caring, empathetic, proficient, and eager to help.

I've been taking my dogs to this office for years and was always very happy with the quality of care. Sadly, since covid began that is far from true anymore. I asked to speak the doctor at my dog's appointment and was told no. My dog had to go in to be evaluated without me... not quite sure how the doctor was going to discuss his anxiety issues, the reason for the appointment, with him... I know the official line, "we can't maintain 3 feet social distancing." Really? How many health professionals can? Dentists certainly can not. My patients are 13 inches from my face, with their mouth open and when I turn on the drill, aerosols are everywhere. Using COVID as an excuse to deliver subpar healthcare is inexcusable. So I'll take my three dogs to another vet that actually speaks to the owners about their concerns, instead of sending an assistant out to talk to me about the bill before a course of treatment has even been discussed. Fortunately I know other Vets that still put care first.

If you’re looking for a reliable veterinary team in the Hudson Valley area - look no further! Everyone here is dedicated to making sure you and your pet receive the absolute best care. Whether you need routine care, boarding, or have questions the DCAH team will be there to help. They have taken the best care of my two boys; Chase and Noodles.

My dog Eve was attacked by a gopher over the summer and ripped a small hole in her skin. I was QUITE upset and called a bunch of places that weren't open, drove around aimlessly until I heard about this Animal Hospital. The techs were so kind with Eve, who is very scared of hospital/ veterans but they kept her and me calm and stapled up her wound. They also clipped her nails . It was a very tranquil vibe with great staff

You’re asking for proof of vaccination in order to come in with your pet. This is terrible and people’s medical records are none of your business. I will never support a business that believes in discrimination.

Great service. The folks that work here truly love thier job and it shows. And they get to know your pets and treat them so well. I trust the entire staff with pets They are still under COVID restrictions, so you pull up to the numbered parking space and call them. They come to the car to get your pet.

I will never, ever take my pets to another place after taking our lovely Nugget here. They know her, she never seems too rattled by the time she's done (and she's a very, very anxious cat) and when something does go wrong they always take accountability. I never got the impression they just saw Nugget as another pet in the building, and genuinely cared for her health after a bad reaction to her vaccines. The doctors and nurses her are the best of the best, and I can't recommend them enough!

Dr Dianne is the Greatest. Her kind and friendly staff make sure you're fur babies are taken care of. Suzanna, Ambriel and the rest of the office staff always get you in ASAP and completely explain billing and procedures. Dr Dianne has many years of experience. She has the knowledge to know how to accurately and affordably take care of all your fur family needs. I can not express how much I value the care that DCAH gives my family. No question one of the best in New York State. Sincerely The MacPherson Family

We have been bringing our pets to Dr Diana and her wonderful, caring team for many years. Best service on all levels for any visit we have had and wouldn’t ever go anywhere else. Dr Diana and Claire have always taken the time to talk, explain and listen and answer any questions and or concerns of our pets especially when we lost our beloved Zeus. Thank you for all you and everyone there have done we truly appreciate you!

DCAH is absolutely amazing!! We have been bringing our Coco there since she was born (2010). They are always kind & compassionate and take the time to answer any questions or concerns we may have. The last 2 Saturdays both of our dogs woke up sick and they were able to squeeze them in for urgent visits on a busy day when they are only open until 1:00pm. They are wonderful and the prices are very reasonable for pet care.

For the general check it's okay. But, I would say the veterinary are not professional!!! After saw the blood report, they said my baby cat might be FIP. They couldn't diagnose what's the problem for my cat. So we went to Karonah Before Veterinary Center, then they saved my cat. She's not FIP but diabetes, the doctor run blood work again and it's so clearly with extreme high glucose level. Lucky, we saved my ????. So, if there's serious problem with your pet, then go somewhere more professional.

This is called a HOSPITAL but don’t have walk in availability until “May”. My puppy is 7 weeks old and tumbled of my bed i immediately called out of work and brung him to the closest animal hospital only to be told they are not taking walk ins.... I’ve been a nurse for a year now and would expect to get treated the way I treat my pts, if there’s an emergency I’d never turn anyone away. Do Not Go Here If You Have Any Emergency!

My cat was examined because she has a lump in her belly area. The vet was honest and straightforward about the situation. The vet gave an estimate for my cat's surgery.

Been around many vetenarians most are non-decisive but Dr. Haight is not one of them. She is an excellent vet and has a great staff.

Love the staff here, especially Claire!!! We have a rottweiler who does not like getting her nails done, but Claire is a dog whisperer and handles our girl great, and she even gets wet kisses after!!

Amazing emergency experience! Even during the pandemic, i was able to get an appointment fast and they saw my dog even faster. Staff is so friendly, helpful, and cares for the happiness of my pup. Would highly recommend, so worth the slightly longer drive from highland!

I recently had my first experience here bringing my 8 year old big dog. So far it was a very positive experience. We have had terrible experiences with veterinarians in the past so my dog gets very nervous. I don't like the whole curbside service when it comes to bringing my fur babies to the vet, especially when it's the very first visit with new people that my dog has never met before but everyone who came out to my car to greet us and give me paperwork was very friendly. I rolled my back window down and my dog was greeted. When it came time for them to take my dog in he actually didn't hide in the car and went with the woman which made me feel better. This office was also great in understanding my large dog isn't dog friendly so they scheduled us as the last visit so we wouldn't have to walk past another dog. Dr Diana Haight gave me a call after checking out my dog and went over my concerns regarding his health. She was very friendly, personable and sounded like she really cared. The next day their office called to check on my dog to see how he was doing from his visit. Our previous vet office never did that follow up call. It showed me they care. This was just our first visit here but so far I am happy we switched to Diana and her team.

I have been bringing my two dogs Xena and Kratos here for 5 years and couldn’t be more happy to have Dr. Haight as my pups veterinarian. Her vet tech Claire is also amazing! It’s difficult to not be able to go into the office with your animals at this time but I fully trust and feel comfortable that my dogs are in good hands with Dr. Haight and Claire!
