The Animal Hospital of Elmont is a state-of-the-art medical and surgery center offering a supervised hospitalization area, in-house X-rays, and expertly trained staff. Using cutting-edge techniques, the Animal Hospital of Elmont strives to reduce the pain experienced by dogs and cats after surgery. Dogs receive anti-inflammatory drugs to curtail swelling and discomfort. In some cases, the staff will apply a pain patch. For cats, the hospital is at the forefront in using new medications for pain relief, as cats do not respond well to ibuprofen, aspirin, or acetaminophen-based painkillers.
At the Animal Hospital of Elmont, Dr. Warren carefully considers the size, age, and health of each individual pet to determine the amount of anesthetics to administer. Prior to putting a pet under anesthesia, the hospital runs a complete set of blood tests to optimize a favorable outcome.
The head veterinarian at the hospital, Dr. Roger Warren, is licensed by the New York State Board for Veterinary Medicine since 1978 and retains membership in the American Veterinary Medical Association, Long Island Veterinary Medical Association, and New York State Veterinary Medical Association. He also sits on the board of the Nassau Animal Emergency Clinic.
