Brought my dog in for a rash, and ended up getting some vaccines updates as well. Very lovely staff, great covid procedures, and they were sensitive to my current budget (a little tight right now because of covid).

“Was so happy to get my kitten seen without an appt. He just came home on the 7th from adopting @ the ASPCA and had problem with scab coming off his enucleation site. Don t know how this happened since he had Ecollar on. Vet did a good job.”

– Jan N.

“What a wonderful practice. For years, I took my dog to see a veterinarian in a mobile vet van in Bushwick — he did a great job, and it was considerably less expensive than a brick and mortar vet, but a practice like yours is just far more comprehensive in treatment. Thank you for everything!”

– Charles W.

“I absolutely love First Avenue Vet! My dog and I recently moved to the NYC area and picked First Avenue Vet because it was conveniently located near our apartment. They were always one phone call away and their walk-in appointments make it extremely easy to get medical advice for your furry friend on a moment’s notice. I cannot recommend this veterinarian enough because they genuinely care about the health and wellbeing of your pet and do their best to address your concerns!”
