Zoetis (Pfizer) has now informed the veterinary community that the promising new anti-itch drug, Apoquel, which was released this past February, and which has already helped a few of my patients, will not become more generally available during April or May of this year, but rather will remain in short supply until mid-2015.

NEW SERVICE! Order your pet supplies and prescriptions right here

The Home Vet is offering pet supplies and veterinary medications 
through Vet's First Choice for your pet's health and wellness needs. 

 theHomeVet.com offers house call veterinary services to the people and pets of the New York City area. While not appropriate for all patients, in-home care can be a useful adjunct for:
  • healthy pet exams
  • geriatric or infirm pets
  • patients that are overly stressed in the hospital setting
  • patients that are difficult or impractical to transport
  • behavioral evaluations and consultations
  • some chemotherapy protocols
  • arthritis and mobility therapies
  • physical rehabilitation treatments
  • compassionate euthanasia
  • second opinions
  • required vaccinations
  • health certificates and travel documents
  • microchip ID implantation
  • laboratory sample collection
  • follow-up and progress exams
  • bandage and splint changes
  • housebound clients
  • day, evening, and weekend appointments
  • emergency triage
  • dogs, cats, birds, small mammals, and exotic pets
Our emphasis is on your petís quality of life. Optimum care is achieved when the client and veterinarian work together as a team.

The Home Vet prefers EMAIL
 as the method of communication, but please use phone call or texting in more urgent situations.

Please note: the visit fee for in-home euthanasia is incurred as soon as the veterinarian departs for the destination, i.e., if the pet expires prior to the veterinarian's arrival, this fee is still owed.  The cremation and euthanasia fees are not owed.

Telephone consultations will be billed $3.00/minute plus $12.00 for the first minute; the fee may be waived at the discretion of the veterinarian.

Routine exams will generally be scheduled for Tuesdays, though other days are often available.  Please e-mail your request to doc@thehomevet.com

such intense expressions!


This is Mozembe, turning twenty this week .... and finally showing age.  He appears about fifteen now; until 2010, he still looked like a two-year old!

New favorite

Mattie always takes a toy with her when going out for a walk.  Frequently, she grabs one in a way that partially obscures her vision, but she never seems to mind....

Queeny and Brandy

Queeny and Brandy are sisters adopted a few years ago, and are now neighborhood fixtures!


this is Rusty, a young pup of the Havanese breed, which is becoming increasingly popular in the area.
