“We switched to First Avenue Vet after our previous vet could not get us in while our dog was experiencing what I believed to be an urgent issue.

I am so glad we found them. The front desk, nurses and Dr. Temple were all kind, informative and reassuring. Pricing is fair (their exam fee is actually $15 less than our previous vet) and Dr. Temple gave an array of testing options – she did not push the most expensive and answered me honestly when I asked what she would do if it were her dog. Dr. Temple has been available via phone the two times I’ve called – and one of the times she was surprisingly the person who answered the phone. She speaks in a way that is easy to understand vs. using only medical terminology. The office is clean and spacious. I am blown away by this practice and really feel grateful that we stumbled upon them, I know our girls health is in good hands with the staff here.”

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!”

“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!”
