    .

    I brought my 8 year old dog there to board for 7 days while we were away. My dog does not go outside regularly and is a total inside dog.. He can not use the flee medication because he is extremly allergic to it. Guess what he came home with! I call them and they said the best they could do was start him on a pill for flee provention.. oh and how kind they paid for the first month. But thats nothing compaired to the money I had to put out to board him there, the exam before hand, and now all the stuff to get rid of the flee not only on the dog but also to make sure that there arent any in my house! I sent my dog there so he would be taken care of not so I would have to go through this! Never again..

    I am pregnant with my first child and my in-laws who live in Whiting have temporarily taken my cats to help us out. My cat became sick and my husband and I went down to Whiting to bring him to the vet. We went to Tom's River Animal Hospital and $170.00 later were told he probably had a UTI and we were given medicine. After a couple days of monitoring him we realized he was not getting any better. We were concerned since he had one prior incident with urinary crystals that caused a blockage. We took him back to the animal hospital and we were given an estimate of roughly $2,000.00 for a catheterization and two day hospital visit. I expressed concern that it was a very high estimate since we had already gone through this and my doctor up in Northern Jersey had charged us $1,200.00 for the same thing plus that was a four day hospital visit. I was told that they could not match the price but could eliminate certain procedures that were not as necessary. So in essence they would eliminate services to lower my bill. I called my vet at home and he said that it would cost us the same as last time this occured we just had to get the cat back home. We brought that cat back to our own vet whose estimate was $822.00 for a two day visit. A lot better than the $2,000.00 that Tom's River wanted. My concern is that there is an overwhelming population of senior citizens on fixed incomes in that area and this is what faces them on a daily basis. I would not recommend this animal hospital to anyone.

    My dog recently had a thorough exam and teeth cleaning. Dr. Levine and the staff took great care of my baby, and were very kind to both of us. Dr. Levine even personally called me at home to see how Phoebe was doing after the teeth cleaning. You couldn't ask for finer care for your animal.

    This place is 2 seconds away from charging for parking. The prices are outrageous. Not worth it. Whoever is in charge, cares more about money than my pets health. Your pet could be dying but if you don't have the money they send you on your way.

    Yes, I will agree that pre-op testing is your safest route to ensure the safest possible outcome, however in the past ten years veterinary costs have sky rocketed. Insurance is available for your pet but the average income in this region of NJ does not indicate affordability. A common dilemma that faces many responsible pet owners. Veterinarian costs could be lowered, but lately I have seen a shift from Vets who truly want to take care of the animals?? best interest to Vets that are in it for a profit. Ethics anyone?? It??s ultimately the animals?? health at jeopardy here. The amount of money being charged for simple surgical procedures such as spay or neuter that literally takes on average 15 minuets for a Vet to perform is ridiculous. When did greed come into Pet health care? And people wonder why pet adoption is low.

    These Vets are the best around... I have been to alot of different offices since we have had to move alot...but this group is very professional and always have the animals best interest in mind....
    Kelly - If there was a problem with the spay, I'd ask if you had the pre-op testing done? alot of people don't do it because it is an additional expense, but so important. Hope everything works out well.

    I took my dog to this vet for a spay and she almost died. They were certain that she had a blood clotting disorder and failed to notice that she had an infection. I would not recommend this vet.

    Christiane from Toms River, NJ
    Pet: Jude
    This was my first visit with TRAH. I had always seen another Vet for my two dogs. My Jude was pregnant and I wasn't satisfied with my last visit for Jude with the vet that I had been seeing since Jude was 8 weeks old. I had made appt. with TRAH in advance for my boy Jack and Jude both. Little did I know I would be making an appt for Jude sooner than I had anticipated. First, I would like to say that even speaking on the phone making the appts for my angels... they were so patient with me explaining that Jude was pregnant and Jack was in need for his yearly shots. This was 2 days prior to having to making the call that my Jude was displaying signs of giving birth, but I was concerned it was too early for Jude to have them. They had the appt. ready for me to bring her in ... 45 mins from the time of my call. When I got there... and I was late mind you... They got Jude in the back and Dr. Reimer sat with me trying to figure out the correct date Jude got pregnant... after Easter... before Mother's Day... and there it was... it was perfect timing that Jude to be ready. Dr. Reimer was patient, caring and understanding. She then supported me by telling me what to expect ... what exactly to look for; unlike my last vet who made me feel like this happens all of the time and gave no words of wisdom. The comfort of knowing if I should need help was only one call away. It wasn't an hour later after leaving that I was making that call. Dr. Reimer got on the phone with me personally and gave me time lines of what to do... and made me feel so at ease so that I could be calm with Jude in this experience. Jude's sac was showing but there was no sight of the pup no sight of any contractions at all. I waited about an hour to see if anything would happen naturally... and yet made another call to Dr. Reimer when she had made the phone call back to me personally! I then brought Jude back and they took her right from my arms at that moment. Took x-rays and saw that my little girl had a baby in the canal. Needless to say... Dr. Reimer wanted Jude to have her babies at home with her loving parents, but it wasn't possible. The little boy was stuck in the birthing canal and it took 3 doctors to take him out of Jude and that a c- section was in need of the last 3 babies. I have to say, I have never felt so safe and in good hands for my once 1 baby... but now 5 babies. I have 4 beautiful puppies now that were saved by the hands of Dr. Reimer. I must also say that Christine who was right there for me with Dr. Reimer for me... shared my concerns and celebrated the joy of my children. I never once worried for Jude or the puppies. They all saved Jude's life and the life of my little boy CC for Close Call-thanks to Dr. Reimer naming him!!!! I also would like to add that Dr. Reimer then made a last call to me before she left the office to let me know all the pups had latched and that Jude was doing very well. Amazing love I felt from everyone there!

    Many animal hospitals are expensive. VcA in toms river is an excellent and thourough place to bring your pet. They specialize in exotics and have taken very good care and health of my pets. It is a francise and they have high prices but thats all part of taking good care of your pets. I have seen and been through worse medical bills for our pets and VCA is my vet facility of choice.

    I was very happy with the service and attention provided by this hospital. My pooch and I saw Dr. Bell to get his shots to be boarded. As I was between homes, Dr. Bell even suggested some pet friendly apartments for me to be able to keep my dog. This has stuck with me, as has the friendliness of the staff. Though the prices are higher than I would have liked, I enjoyed the caring atmosphere.

    We have used this vet for out iguana. He was very sick and they were able to see him quickly. The exotic animals vet at this hospital was very good with him. She was very knowledgeable and was able to diagnose him and told us what we were doing wrong with his care. They saved his life. He is now 10 and 5 feet long.
