  • 5 star review  I have been bringing my cats to Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital for a few years now, and they are basically considered family at this point. They are professional, caring, and just the best quality care I have ever been able to get for my cats. From my older cats to my newer cats, I would never hesitate to bring them in for any reason. When my cat Sammy got sick and passed away last year, they were with me every step of the way, and kept me updated/educated on everything. They're patient, kind, and the best animal hospital I have been to. I will never bring my pets anywhere else!

I’m a very big fan of Sleepy Hollow Animal Hospital. They are so thorough, so kind, and take such great care of our dog. They aren’t afraid to give us feedback on things we should be doing better for our pup (teeth cleaning) and provide the feedback with warmth and understanding. You can also tell how genuinely everyone there cares for animals. I don’t hesitate when recommending them to others who are looking for a great vet!

I have been a cat owner a few times in my past, But I have never had an inside cat before. Living in a small apartment with a five month old kitten had a few challenges for me. This facility was recommended by a friend neighbor and I have been very pleased With Dr. Daugherty. She truly understands the cats psyche and it’s helped me with any concerns that I might have, none of whichA Series

Excellent experience today. My cat has been a treated at SHAH since he was 8 weeks old an he is now 5 years old. Always, always, always, the doctors and staff have been excellent and have given my cat the best care possible. Now, with COVID-19 among us, SHAH has made their service to the furry patients even better. Thank you SHAH

SHAH managed to squeeze my 18 year old Chihuahua into their busy schedule for a much needed nail trim. They are understandably prioritizing ill and injured animals over those with grooming needs but they accommodated him anyway.

Dr. Romano is excellent! Always a very educational and helpful experience. Probably the best vet I’ve ever visited. Thanks so much!

Is My Pet Overweight?

With their fluffy, round physiques, chubby pets have taken over the internet with cute pictures and their own social media accounts. “Chonky” pets, however, aren’t as cute as the internet would like you to believe. We love all animals and, of course, we think they’re all cute, but obesity is a serious health problem for cats and dogs.
