Emergency / Critical Care
We understand how upsetting it is having a sick or injured pet and not being able to get help quickly. Our emergency services are here for you 7 days a week; 24 hours a day. Staff veterinarians along with technical support staff are on premises at all times working as a team with skill and compassion to respond to emergency calls during the hours your veterinarian is unavailable. We will stabilize your pet, perform any necessary diagnostic tests and continue treatment as needed. Your pet will be in the best possible hands so you can have peace of mind.
Although an appointment is not needed, we ask that you telephone the hospital to alert us to your emergency so that we can prepare properly for your pet’s arrival.
The Department of Cardiology at Oradell Animal Hospital was established in 2002 under the direction of Dr. Donald Schrope, Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Cardiology). The department focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of the cardiopulmonary system in dogs and cats.
Our cardiology specialists have over 20 years of combined experience and look forward to providing you and your pet the best possible care. Our staff is capable of performing many types of diagnostic and therapeutic services.
The Department of Internal Medicine consists of four board certified internists and a specialized technical support staff.
Diagnostic services include Ultrasonography, Endoscopic examinations of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract, the urinary tract and the nasal passages, and Biopsies.
Therapeutic services include Chemotherapy for selected tumors, Radioactive iodine treatment for cats with hyperthyroidism, Intravenous nutrition for animals too ill to eat, Treatments for Cushing’s disease, Treatments for Addison’s disease, Canine hypothyroidism, and Diabetic Stabilization
Our internists integrate their care with neurology, oncology, cardiology, surgery, and the critical care unit to function as a team in order to provide the best possible medical and surgical care to all of our patients.
There are numerous diseases of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves which are seen in companion animals. Our hospital’s Neurology Service has the expertise to diagnose and treat a wide range of neurological diseases from seizure disorders, to spinal pain and weakness or paralysis, to tumors and inflammatory diseases such as encephalitis. Using MRI imaging, electrodiagnostic testing and specialized laboratory testing, our neurologists are able to customize a diagnostic and treatment program to treat a constellation of neurological diseases. A state of the art neurosurgery suite is available for surgical intervention by any of our neurologists. The Neurology Service is available six days a week for consultation, diagnostic testing and treatment including MRI imaging and neurosurgery.
It is upsetting to suspect or learn that your pet has cancer. The Oncology service at Oradell Animal Hospital is here to support you. We understand your concerns and will work tirelessly to help you through this difficult time.
Our focus is to provide you with an accurate diagnosis, apprise you of all the various treatment options, and ensure that all of your questions are answered. By working closely with the Surgery and Internal Medicine departments, we can determine the type and extent of the cancer in your individual pet so that a treatment plan that is best suited to your pet’s needs can be developed.
The Department of surgical services was established over 40 years ago by Dr. Anthony Palminteri, founder of Oradell Animal Hospital and followed shortly thereafter by co-owner Dr. William Stockman. Drs. Palminteri and Stockman received specialized surgical training at the ASPCA’s Henry Bergh Memorial Hospital in New York City, and Dr. Palminteri was among the first group of veterinary surgeons to be certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS) in 1968.
Today, Oradell Animal Hospital has three board certified surgeons on staff who maintain the highest surgical standards while performing the latest techniques in soft tissue and orthopedic surgery. Our state-of-the-art facility contains special surgical suites dedicated to general, orthopedic, and cardiovascular surgeries, laparoscopy and arthrosocopy.
