Dr. Schafer our Chow Chow's vet for 14 years. When my husband found a tumor in her mouth, Doctor Schafer reminded us how she had lived a long, wonderful and happy life. I wish we would have accepted that. Instead we thought we could ??save her? and brought her to a specialist in Tinton Falls who performed surgery to remove the mass and surrounding jaw line, gave her injections to prevent recurrence but she still passed away after 5 LONG months of trying to feed her as she would no longer eat on her own say nothing of the expense. Most importantly we fear Ginger may have suffered when that was all we were trying to avoid.

Dr. Schafer and his staff were kind and compassionate throughout the difficult process when we accepted it was time to put our baby to sleep.

After 3 years, we are finally ready to bring a new puppy into our home on October 21st. He already has an appointment with the BEST vet we know on the 22nd.

I took one of my dogs here for the first time and had to come here and say what a great vet he is. We've been to 3 different vets in the area (fanwood, Plainfield and Westfield Wellness) and by far Dr. Shafer is the only one who listened to what I had to say and wasn't interested in just giving her a ton of medicine as a bandaid. He was also the only one who requested that I follow up with him.

I have 4 dogs and it's important for me to find the right vet. Dr. Shafer is way more reasonable than many others and he really cares about dogs.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Dr. Steven Schafer and your wonderful and attentive staff. You all are THE BEST.

I highly, highly recommend Dr. Schafer and the Scotch Plains Animal Hospital.

I have been to Dr. Schafer twice now in the last month, and he has made thorough examinations of my cats' needs (worms, ear mites, etc.) and taken great care of them. They are gaining weight and continue to improve with treatment. I am so impressed with their progress after visiting Dr. Schafer.

He pays close attention to me and all of my questions are answered. And I follow closely his instructions as well. I feel a lot more confident and hopeful about the future with the three senior cats I adopted from the animal shelter.

The office is always clean and was very easy to locate. I didn't have any trouble finding it at all.

Again, I highly recommend the entire team. You get both quality and value at one location. Dr. Schafer and the Scotch Plains Animal Hospital have me for life.

Best Vet in NJ. Caring, professional, and extremely knowledgeable Dr. Schaffer is the best in the biz. Our family has been using his services for over 20 years. He and his staff are kind and compassionate. He does not trick you into

The facility is small and dated, but the Dr. and the techs are friendly and thorough. There are many vets locally that charge 2 to 3 times as much in their service fees...so they can afford the upscale offices! They are always available

Dr. Schafer is very good, I took my 13 year old dog there and he treated my dog like he was one of his own; very caring doctor and U don't find that often.

like others, i have joined the site to refute the poor review. while i will admit that the facility is not the newest, most technilogically advanced place, its doctor is excellent at his job. my family has been quite the vet hopper in our history, but we find that every time we really need help with our pets health, we've gone to this place. we've gotten two grim diagnoses (a brain tumor and epi) from dr. schafer, but each time he has helped us make the right decision. he is blunt because he needs to be, and while its hard to take sometimes its what you need to hear.

I have used SPAH for years and had to put down or have serious medical issues with more than one pet. After reading the first review regarding the unpleasant experience, it sounds very typical of this vet - he cares more about the pet than your feelings. He will not tolerate someone allowing an animal to suffer because they cannot do the humane thing when an animal has no hope of recovery and is suffering needlessly. That person would be better off in a bigger facility where you are nothing more than a chart number and an ATM card. They would love to take your money and continue to allow your pet to suffer because you "are not ready" to let the pet go - so it continues to suffer. Schafer and his staff know my pets by name, my file is by name not some number... you get personal service. If you cannot deal with the fact that he cares more about your pets suffering than hurting your feelings, go to the impersonal "big" facilities. My pets deserve a vet that cares more about them than my feelings. Sometimes you need to be told point blank that what you're doing is cruel to the pet.
