Brooklyn Veterinary Hospitals: 6th Avenue Animal Clinic & Clinton Hill Animal Clinic
Welcome to the website of 6th Avenue Animal Clinic and Clinton Hill Animal Clinic, two of the leading Brooklyn veterinary hospitals. Our veterinarians and staff are committed to providing the highest quality treatment to your pet in a relaxed environment. Our founding veterinarian, Dr. Pamella Dendtler, and our newest veterinarian Dr. Robert Gooden are highly skilled and bring a complementary realm of experiences to each animal hospital.
Dr. Dendtler, our primary veterinarian, founded 6th Avenue Animal Clinic on February 26, 1983 in Park Slope Brooklyn. She opened Clinton Hill Animal Clinic in Brooklyn on January 17, 2009. The Clinton Hill Animal clinic started out as a satellite animal hospital, but as business grew, it became its own clinic to meet the demand of our pet owners. Our newest veterinarian, Dr. Gooden, joined our staff after receiving his veterinary degree from the University of Georgia.
Our Veterinary Hospitals Are Here for Your Pet
At either animal hospital, you can expect high quality services. The staff at our veterinary hospitals are caring and well trained professionals in every aspect of your pet's care, from routine visits to emergency procedures, meds for pets and cat boarding. Here are just a few of our services that we offer to local pets and owners: regular physical examinations, emergency care, vaccinations, spay and neuter surgeries, microchip implantation, and dental cleanings.
Kittens and puppies as well as elderly pets need special care. Our veterinarians and staff are knowledgeable in both juvenile and geriatric pet care. Our veterinary hospitals also provide emergency veterinary services during regular business hours. Our diagnostic lab testing, digital radiography, and ultrasound equipment are the most modern in the industry, and ensure accurate and quick test results.
Additionally, our clinics provide pet vaccinations at the appropriate age ranges to protect your pet's health, and to ensure the longevity and health of your pet. These pet vaccinations and other meds for pets are available through our in-house pharmacy, which maximizes your convenience.
At the 6th Avenue Animal Clinic and the Clinton Hill Animal Clinic, our veterinarians use the safest, most up to date techniques for all surgical procedures, including spay and neuter, orthopedic surgery, and soft tissue surgery to name a few. In addition to top rate surgical procedures, our veterinarians also offer pet dental care for your pet at our animal hospital. Dental exams, pet dental cleaning and other dental procedures are safe, and humane. Veterinarians can also offer you tips on home pet dental cleaning to keep your pet's breath and dental health in top shape.
Our veterinarians also treat some of the most complicated dermatology issues that your pet may have, including allergy testing and treatment, flea and tick treatment and prevention. Some dermatology problems are related to food allergies and require specialized pet food. To address this and other dietary issues, our clinic offers prescription diets and nutrition counseling. Other skin problems may need antibacterial, anti fungal or environmental allergy treatments, and our vets address these problems as well.
Our clinic also provides domestic and international travel certificates and cat boarding to accommodate your travel plans.
Additionally, all veterinarians can make house calls in Brooklyn and nearby areas in NYC on an appointment-only basis.
