At Park Ridge Animal Hospital, we deliver a high-level, unique experience with every wellness visit. Here, our expertly-trained staff will provide your pet with low-stress care to make treatment easier for them, us, and you. We also take time during each visit to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, fully evaluate your pet’s health, and work with you to make a plan for their continued well-being.

For pets who are overly anxious about veterinary visits, or if you are unable to get them to the hospital, we offer house calls for the surrounding area. We can perform many of our wellness services during these visits. Please call us at (201) 391-9494 to schedule a house call.

When you visit us at PRAH, you and your pet will be warmly welcomed by our compassionate staff and taken to an exam room as soon as one is available. Cats enjoy their kitty corner away from dogs to reduce the stress of their visit. Additionally, we all wear colors that are calming to cats and dogs and use a gentle, low-stress approach to handling. Your pet will also enjoy caring attention and positive reinforcement with their favorite treats.

All blood work, fecal exams, and any other lab work can be performed with our in-house lab. We also have X-ray and ultrasound capabilities in-hospital.

Parasite Prevention: A Ticking Time Bomb

Parasite prevention is essential for any pet. However, in our area, ticks are a serious, and growing concern. So much so, it's only a matter of time before your dog (or cat, to a lesser degree) comes into contact with one. Ticks are just one of the reasons we recommend parasite prevention all year round.

As for other parasites, fleas, heartworms, and intestinal parasites are also present in our area. We offer a range of parasite preventatives to suit any pet, and now offer ProHeart 6, a 6-month injection that protects dogs against heartworms. Preventing parasites is far less costly than treating an infestation or the diseases they can cause, so talk to us today about your pet’s parasite prevention!
