I heard a horrible story about this vet today, and I am so glad I did not take myBilly to this vet. He is often recommend by local stores in Union that sell dogs. DO NOT GO THERE. Conditions are unsanitary and the vets license was

Dr. Mitterman is the most caring veterinarian we have ever used. He saved the life of our dog - mauled by a truck - with unbelievable care and for a fraction of what another vet would have charged. He told me later that he did it because "she was a young dog and I really thought she could make it. If I had quoted you some outrageous price, you might not have tried to save her". He was right on both accounts. Two years later she is still a happy, active member of our family and we will always be grateful for saving her and the five little hearts of our children which would have been broken had we lost her.

My mother and I brought one of our cats to Dr. Mitterman several years ago, on a recommendation from my mother's friend. All the doctor did was talk about how much he missed drinking (former alcoholic) and told us stories about the "good old days" when he was always drunk. He seemed to be trying to make us feel sorry for him that he could no longer get drunk, as his wife wouldn't let him. He didn't seem to be paying enough attention to our cat (who was very old and soon after had to be put down - Dr. Mitterman's recommendation) and I don't think he was very thorough. His office (both reception area and treatment room) were very dirty looking. Many stray cats were on the property and were allowed to wander in and out the office. While the bill was cheaper than most other vets I've brought my pets to, in this case you get what you pay for! Find another vet, please.

HE TIES DOGS THAT ARE SCARED AND YELP. HE TIDE THEIR MOUTHS/NOSE WITH A ROPE!
HE SAID IT REMINDED OF PEOPLE DYING IN WAR AND COULDN'T BEAR THE NOISE.

I QUIT AS SOON AS I FOUND OUT HE DID THAT AND KILLED INNOCENT ANIMALS FOR NO REASON. HE EVEN SHOWED ME BULLETS STILL IN HIS BODY FROM THE WAR.

IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE WHAT I'M SAYING ASK HIM ABOUT THE WAR AND BULLETS IN HIS BODY. I WAS ONLY A TEENAGER AND THE VISION OF HIM ABUSING THE ANIMALS COMPLETLY has HAUNTED me ALL THESE 9+ YEARS OF MY LIFE SINCE LAST TIME I WORKED THERE FOR HIM.

HE WAS CREEPY OLD MAN.

BEING A WAR VETERAN MYSELF I WOULD NVER HURT AN ANIMAL IN ANY WAY NO MATTER WHAT!! HE'S ANIMAL ABUSER, I CAN SAY HE WAS PERVERTED TOO BY SHOWING ME BULLETS ON HIS BODY WITHOUT MAKING SURE IT WAS OK FOR ME TO SEE AND EVEN SHOWED ME X-RAYS HE TOOK AT THE OFFICE.

DON'T BELIEVE WHAT I'M SAYING, ASK HIM ABOUT THE WAR AND BULLETS. I was only a very young teenager then, didn't know any better.

AND I THINK HE PAYS HIS WORKERS DECENT MONEY, SO OF COURSE, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO COMPLAIN SINCE THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE ANIMALS JUST WANT TO GET A PAYCHECK.

HE SEEMED LIKE A NICE PERSON, BUT WITH LOTS OF MENTAL ISSUES(MOST LIKELY FROM THE WAR) BUT NO EXCUSE FOR HIM TO ABUSE/MISTREAT ANIMALS.

I HINK(NOT SURE) HE MAY HAVE PUT DOWN ONE OF HIS WORKER'S YOUNG, HEALTHY DOG DOWN BECAUSE SHE NO LONGER WANTED IT!! SHE HAD BROKEN UP WITH THE BOYFRIEND AND HE HAD GIVEN HER THE DOG, SO SHE DIDN'T WANT TO DEAL WITH THE DOG ANYMORE. I NVER HAD THE BALLS TO ASK IF HE EUTHANIZED HIM, BUT I SAW A VERY SIMILAR DOG WITH SAME MARKINGS IN THE FREEZER IN BLACK BAG WHERE HE WOULD KEEP THE DEAD DOGS! I'VE ALWAYS HAD A GUT FEELING HE DID EUTHENIZE THE SWEET, YOUNG DOG INSTEAD OF TRYING TO PUT IT UP FOR ADOPTION. AFTER SEEING ALMOST IDENTICAL DOG FREEZER, I NEVER SAW THE ALIVE DOG AGAIN, AND I KNOW THE FEMALE WORKER DIDN'T TAKE HIM/HER BACK HOME:(

He is Licensed:
Name: MITTERMAN, GARY E, DVM
Address: UNION, NJ
License Number: 29VI00203700
License Status: Active
Expiration Date: 30-JUN-11
Perhaps his behavior you perceived as "unstable" was because he was upset about the death of your pet. I worked with him for years. He always cared.

DO NOT BRING YOUR PET HERE! Gary Mitterman has lost his license several times for lethal doses of anesthesia and substance abuse issues. He was suspended as recently as July 2008. Check with the Attorney General of NJ , all public record. He killed our dog during a simple procedure and acted unprofessional and unstable afterward. After asking around i have heard dozens of horror stories about him from grieving pet owners. DO NOT GO HERE! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!

Dr. Mitterman is not only a great doctor but he's a great person too. He's a light hearted but also highly qualified individual. He will provide some of the best care for your four legged loved ones in the area. He provides care for alot of pets in the area and with good reason. If you are having difficulties finding the right vet for you and your pet, Dr. Mitterman is a great choice!

I have been taking my animals to Dr. Mitterman for many years now. I have found him to be very compassionate and a good dr. over all. He has treated my animals for shots to surgery and, unfortunately, euthanasia. One time my dog had to have emergency surgery, and it turned out to be cancer. First he saw him after hours and then called throughout the night to give me updates on his condition. He called at 3AM to tell me that my dog had taken a turn for the worse and that we should consider putting him to sleep. He waited until morning so that I could say goodbye and he did not charge for the euthanasia. Frequently, when he wants to see the animal for follow-up, he does not charge anything. It is obvious that he is a true animal lover. The office is clean and well organized. The assistants and receptionists are very helpful. I have also found that filling prescriptions is no problem. When I go to the office there are usually animals about. They either need to be watched closely or would do better if they were not in a cage. I have always found Dr. Mitterman to be reasonable and fair. He is extremely compassionate. I will continue going to him, although it is a little drive for me. I have tried other vets but always end up back with him.
