We are always striving to provide your pet with superior care.  Here is what some of our pet parents have to say about our practice:


I could not love these doctors more! They treated my dog for many years until her recent death at the age of 19 years and 7 months! They loved her and treated her like she was their own. Every doctor I saw there was kind and more than competent. My dog faced many health challenges over the years and she overcame them all due to the excellent care she received. I was always told ahead of time what the cost would be and I was always given options. Any questions I had were answered in full. If I had an emergency or was just concerned about the dog, my calls were always returned. One of the doctors actually attended a medical conference just to find out more on one of the conditions my dog had. One time I had a medical emergency with my dog and the hospital was closed when I got there. The receptionist who was still there closing up personally drove us to a hospital in Hoboken to get treatment. I want to particularly single out Dr. Bucholz for going above and beyond on many occasions for us. When my dog passed away, I felt as if they grieved with us. I would not hestitate to recommend them highly!

I've always had a good experience with Westside Animal Hospital. They treated my black lab "Max", then "Danny" my sheperd. In their later years "Max" ended up with cancer and "Danny" with DM (degenerative myelopathy). In both cases Dr. Buchholz made the correct diagnosis. In Max's case Dr. Buchholz suggested that because of Max's age and condition chemo treatment wouldn't be advisable. Well, I couldn't standby and doing nothing while Max was dying, so I brought him to Red Bank Animal Hospital for this treatment........It almost killed him. After one treatment we built him back up as best we could and then spoiled him to the end.
My experience is that this hospital will do whatever is necessary for you and your pet and even though I currently don't have a dog, I will sometime in the near future and Westside will be it's Vet.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Bucholtz(sp?) as a vet and a person. I walked into his office with an battered stray, near death and 15 years later she's still going strong.He is what a Dr. should be kind, considerate and understanding. He talks to me and offers options before any procedure. His staff is friendly and there are very good on reminder calls and follow up calls. I wish my childrens pediatricians were as thoughful as Dr. B.
