Dr. Diggle is AWESOME!!! I have followed him from New York for many years and he offers the best care that I have ever experienced. He is always gentle with my dogs, compassionate and advises me on what is best for my pet. His office is very cute and clean and doesn't smell bad like a lot of other places. He is highly recommended by me and my dogs!!!!

I am a new owner of a guinea pig & I brought Latte (my pet) to Dr. Diggles twice & both times I suffered from sticker shock! The first time i expected a routine check up for much less than the $134 i ended up payiing b/c he needed a vitamin C shot, antibiotics & probiotics too which seemed a bit ridiculous to me. Truth is, Dr. Diggles definitely strikes me as very compassionate & caring but I don't appreciate finding out how much i owe AFTER the fact. For example, today I came back to trim his nails for $13 & i left there with a $28 bill for a re-check that i never had requested. in the future, i will need to be VERY specific that ALL i need is a nail trim for $13 & not anything extra b/c I find it annoying to get surprise charges & i was not expecting the extra $15 charge. it seemed a bit sneaky to me especially b/c it's not what i asked for.

What a great, fantastic find! The Dumont Animal Hospital is a little far from where I live, but it is definitely worth the extra miles. I can't say enough, how wonderful and caring Dr. Diggle is. I have had dogs all my life but never found a veterinarian that I am this comfortable with. He takes his time, does not rush through and answered all of my questions and concerns. His prices are quite reasonable as well. Love the bright cheery decor, too! Thanks to Dr. Diggle and his staff for taking such good care of my Daisy!!!

Dr. Diggle is the best. You can tell that he and his staff truly love animals and they are very good in handling them and show alot of patience. Yes the bills are pretty high when you leave there but that goes along with keeping your pet healthy. He is not anymore expensive than any other vet. The reception area is a little small but so what...

We love Dr. Diggle! After moving to New Jersey, my husband and I decided to get a family pet for the first time. I have owned pets all my life and am very familiar with vet visits. Dr. Diggle's office is very clean and his staff are very nice. When our new family member decided to eat everything in his path, we realized we had to limit his freedom. Dr. Diggle spent time with us and helped to strategize a plan to help our family keep our dear Rascle safe.

While visiting family, Rascle ate rocks. We immediately went to Dr. Diggle. We had to wait to be seen, but he was available for us and ended up doing surgery that night! Rascle has since calmed down, and we are grateful for Dr. Diggle and his staff at the Dumont Animal Hospital. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Diggle and Dumont Animal Hospital!!

I was unimpressed by Dr Diggle. Vets handling rabbits and small animals are harder to find so I was glad I found Dr Diggle so close to home. His prices are competitive BUT the price to have my 1 1/2 yr old healthy bunny ended up being $150 more than I was quoted on the phone.
He did not spend much time with me at all and I feel did not explain the procedure in the detail he should have. Fortunately I went in well educated and he was able to answer my questions adequately. But I got the feeling had I not been so knowledgeable going in I would not have learned anything going out.
He also suggested I feed her iceberg lettuce when we got home! Bunny 101 teaches you to NEVER feed them iceberg lettuce. Too much water, not enough nutrients, and can cause bloating and problems with their digestive tracks.
When I questioned his lettuce recommendation he quickly back peddled.
Overall the procedure went well, bunny is almost back to normal 3 days later. In a pinch I would probably go back due to his proximity but he will not be my primary care.

Dr. Diggle is great. The only reason for not getting five stars is the receptionist always puts me on hold immediately after picking up the phone and sometimes there seems to be poor communication between receptionist and staff. Other than that, Diggle is great and fairly priced and one of the few places in my area that don't gouge prices for reptile visits.

I find both the staff and Dr. Diggle to conduct themselves in a professional manner. I always know what the bill will be and there are never any surprises.Dr. Diggle is very good with my animals and he is a kind and caring individual. I've been to many Vets in the area and unfortunately they can be a little cold when it comes to caring for my animals.I would recommend Dumont Animal Hospital to anyone new to the area or just looking to change Vets.AM

Dr. Diggle is a very personable, caring vet who takes his time to explain everything in detail and answer all your questions. He's very gentle and loving towards animals and tells you exactly during consultation how much everything costs so you're not blindsided later (i.e. Oradell Animal Hospital - amazing facility, but the cost is just outrageous and it seems like the vets don't know how much things cost so you really don't know how much you're being charged until you get to the front desk). I feel comfortable going there and I trust him with my dog completely.

Dr. Diggle is an experienced veterinarian and I especially like that he doesn't make you feel rushed during the appointment. I have been to other vets and they just want to get you in and out as fast as possible and when I would ask a question they would give a one word answer and not explain anything. He takes the time to explain things and answer any and all questions which makes me feel at ease since I love my doggies and want the best care for them. The wait time can be long though and I don't find the receptionists very professional. There is one in particular that is extremely rude, puts you on hold for 10 minutes every time and interrupts you and confuses everything you say. I have learned to avoid her by calling in the afternoons and I suggest you do the same!

I am shocked by these reviews...Dr Diggle is upfront with pricing, always presents options and never judges what decisions you make. I will continue to drive from Hudson County to Dumont, NJ for all my pet care needs. Sometimes pet care is expensive, but that's not the Dr's fault. I have had vets in Hoboken who charged 2x as much for the same procedures.

Although the doctor has a good bedside manner, as a previous reviewer described, he does seem to look to add as many charges as possible to the bill. In fact when he was taking notes in the actual examination room, he was including the prices next to each procedures, which we felt was inappropriate and extremely insensitive not to mention unprofessional. Their is also a very nasty rude receptionist.

This Vet is very small...my friend took her pets here and did not like it at all. I went with her to the visit and I realized that Dr. Diggle has a good way of making the bill higher and higher. He kept on telling us that her dog needed all these medications and he wanted to do so many things on her that we felt was not necessary. We came in for a routine check-up and landed with a 200 dollar bill. Would not recommend this vet at all. The receptionist is also very rude and does not seem to understand the prices of procedures very much. When we called to make an apointment we were put on hold for 10 mintues. The office was very cold and there was NO parking in the back. Not very good...would not recommend. Go elsewhere!

After reading all the positive reviews of Dr. Diggle I decided to take our newly adopted dog to him. I almost didn't take my three children because of the review about the small examining rooms. I am happy to say that the examining rooms are spacious. in fact, there were two chairs for my twins to sit in and my whole family of 5 plus the doctor and his assistant had more than enough room to stand. I found the "brightly" colored walls to be cheerful. Dr. Diggle was very thorough in his exam and he was very open to any questions I had and explained everything to me. I am very glad I have found a new vet that I trust with my dog's care.

I took my bunny to have an exam and her nails clipped and Dr. Diggle was amazing. He has a warm, friendly bedside manner, answered all of my questions without being condescending, and I found him to be very thorough.

The office staff was also extremely friendly and helpful. The waiting room was brightly painted and welcoming, too.

I felt extremely comfortable at this office and I will surely return!

I love Dumont Animal Hospital, I have been taking my cat there since I got him. Dr. Diggle is great, always takes the time to explain things to me, and lets me ask any questions I need. The staff is always very welcoming. We now take all of our animals there, and we love it there!!!

I was excited to see that this vet was opening around the corner a year or so ago. We made an appointment to take one of our cats in for her annual visit, and we figured we'd take it from there. The office is small. We were the only ones there at the time, and the waiting area itself is cramped and uncomfortable. The woman at the reception desk didn't seem to understand procedures. The doctor was nice, and he seemed very thorough, but the exam rooms were small and a little too "loud" in color for my taste. It just seemed like it was running in too small of a space. Needless to say, we stuck with our regular vet this year, and won't be going back unless it was a huge emergency.

PROS: Nice, thorough doctor
CONS: Parking all the way around the back, and not well lit at night

I noticed that this animal hospital opened recently, and had the opportunity to try them out when my small dog was sick and my regular vet was out of town. The office is clean and well kept, the vet (Dr. Diggle) was excellent with both my dog and my worried child - bedside manner is always a plus! His diagnosis was right on target, and the dog is feeling much better already. And the others (people, not pets!) I spoke to in the waiting room spoke highly of Dr. Diggle. They are also able to provide vet care for reptiles, something many of the other area vets cannot do.

PROS: clean, bedside manner, reptile certified
