About Our Animal Hospital

Conveniently located in Brooklyn, New York, our animal hospital is a warm welcoming environment for your pet and you. Open 6 days a week (and closed on Sundays), we offer a flexible schedule to help make it easy for you to come visit our staff for any of your pet's veterinary needs. Appointments are preferred, however, we do accept walk-ins and emergencies--so if your pet is in need, please feel free to call us or stop on by!

At our clinic, we have state-of-the-art technology that allows us to provide excellence in specialized veterinary care, including diagnostic testing, lab work, pet dentistry, and soft tissue/orthopedic surgery. We strive to offer these advanced techniques in a clean and calm setting, surrounded by a friendly and knowledgeable staff who loves what they do! 

Of course, pet emergencies don't always happen during business hours. If you're experiencing an overnight or after-hours pet emergency, or if you need a special consultation, you can contact one of our affiliate hospitals, Animal Medical Center in New York City, NYC Veterinary Specialists, and Veterinary Emergency Referral Group.

Meet Our Clinton Hill Veterinarians!

Our team is led by Dr. Pamela Dendtler, a veterinarian in Clinton Hill with nearly 40 years of experience helping animals of all breeds, ages, and temperaments. She opened Clinton Hill Animal Clinic in 2009 and has worked with animals from organizations including Radio City Music Hall, the Universe Soul Circus, and the Federation of Black Cowboys--but she also loves getting to know the animals in her own neighborhood, as well! 

Brooklyn native Dr. Robert Gooden is also a veterinarian in Clinton Hill who has been practicing since 2012. His appreciation and respect for the human-animal bond is what brought him into this line of work, under the guidance and mentorship of Dr. Dendtler.

Both Dr. Dendtler and Dr. Gooden are honored to be your Brooklyn vets!
