we have been using Bellport animal hosp for over thirty yrs. Dr Pollack, even kept the place open for me after hours, when my dog became seriously ill, another time one of my dogs had been stung multiple times, by hornets, I rushed her in with out an appointment, they treated her on the spot! They have also helped with the poor rescues I took in, the ones I didnt think would surive, I am forever greatfull to them all,

Choose another Vet!!! I have been going to Bellport Animal Hospital for years and I have finally had it. This review is not for one specific doctor, but the Animal Hospital as a whole. I think that they have become such a "big business" that they forget why they are really there. My biggest complaint is the wait time. You will always have to wait a minimum of 1 hour from your appointment time. This occurs every single time you go there. They will tell you they had an "emergency" that day, but it is always the same. Their fees are also very high. I guess they have to be so that they can afford the "state of the art" facility that they are planning to open. I guess they are smart. They know that people will do anything for their pets. Me.....I am never going back. I will find a new, honest Vet, who attempts to run their practice correctly. No stars from me.

Thursday is the name of our Long Hai Cat although my husband likes to call him Fo (Fo Fighters)oddly enough I noticed him on wednesday not eating, by thursday morning when he wasn't my little garfield to the bowl for his morning meal I knew something was wrong. My husband and I went into the room to look for him and found him hiding, when we went to get him he growled at us. This was not the jolly fellow we know. Finally he came out and we were able to take him to the vet. $1200.00 later and 3 catherizations he still wasn;t doing well. Then they offered this surgery that makes a male cat a female it is called a Perineal urethrostomy. My husband and I as well as my step son and his mom and grandma were in the room and the clear human thing to do at this point being that our 2 year old little kitty was so young and still holding we teamed up and decided to go for this Perneal surgery. I just received the phone call that thursday made it through the wilderness so far. My vet Dr Cangro also offered usa a payment plan. This sudden illness could not have come at a worse time. My husband has been out of work for over a month, we are hanging on, and this story has just begun. I cannot say wether or not I am happy or not happy I can say they are working with our family. we have been going to this vet fro over 20 years this has to count for somthing. Also my stepson has been so strong throughout this ordeal I pray we are heading up hill soon. Thanks I will give an update soon. D Rene

My first (and last) experience at Bellport Animal Hospital was absolutely horrendous?. I will not recommend this hospital to anyone who loves their pet. I almost lost my kitten by following the hospital??s medical advice. When I confronted the hospital about the mistake of their medical advice, the veterinarians and office manager passed accountability and responsibility on to me. The medical team was unapologetic for their poor medical judgment and tried to justify their failure to take action when I called them about my kitten??s symptoms of lethargy and one episode of vomiting. I made the mistake of following their advice which was to ??wait out 24 hours? and I ended up rushing my kitten to the emergency hospital in the middle of the night. I am skeptic of their medical judgment and am appalled by their treatment to a client. I will unequivocally not recommend this hospital.

When I was first on my own I'd attempted to de-worm two new kittens I'd gotten from a shelter on my own. I was young and unaware and my cat bit into the dewormer. He was foaming at the mouth and I'd thought I'd poisoned him. When I got to this vet the receptionist went in and got the vet for me right away. Both calmed me down and were very kind. The vet even asked me to bring the other kitten in who I hadn't de-wormed yet. I'm very appreciative of the care and concern. The bill was a different matter and I wouldn't use this as a regular vet.

The vet at Bellport Animal Hospital has always taken excellent care of our animals, since 1980. Over the years, we have had three cats, two dogs and four parakeets. We have boarded the cats there, and they take very good care of them.

I recently purchased a six month old kitten from a pet store that gave me a voucher for free neutering at the Bellport Animal Hospital. I had never been there before, and would never go back after having been there now. I brought my kitten in for a check up and saw a male doctor that told me he was very healthy and to bring him back in three weeks to be neutered. All seemed well. Three weeks later I returned with my little guy and saw a female doctor who very quickly ran through a list of tests I should have done before proceeding with the surgery. She was insisting on pulling his baby teeth and told me that if she did not pull them, his baby teeth and adult teeth would fall out. She convinced me to have an x-ray done on his heart because she said she heard a very slight murmur. After she did the x-ray, she told me his heart was slightly enlarged and I needed to get an echocardiogram done on him for $350 before they put him under anesthesia. I felt something wasn't right and decided to hold off on the neutering and the test. Two days later his baby teeth that she insisted wouldn't come out on their own fell out, and the new vet that I went to said there was no murmur and nothing wrong with his heart. I am convinced they just didn't want to do that free neutering and tried to take me for as much as they could. I would never go back there again, and I would advise everyone looking for a vet to look elsewhere.

My past two dogs were under their care and I can say I did not have a problem until now. Recently we bought a dog that became ill within two days of purchase and died under their care. I'm not putting any blame on them for the puppies illness or the fact that the dog passed on. The problem was the affiliation they had with the pet store. We got minimal information about the puppies condition due to the fact the pet store advised them not to tell us too much. This was told to us by the animal hospital on 8/4/08 after the dog died. They refused to return any of our phone calls all weekend. Unfortunately we will never know the full truth. We fell in love with this little puppy for the short time we had her and we think that they were very insensitive towards our feelings.

Awhile back my dog Kodiak (akita) was hit by a big car or truck.. They weren't sure if she would make it but they were truthful. They said they could do a uick exploratory surgery.. They did. And she lived another 8 years from then,, They are the best! They even worked out a payment plan since it was so much (but all Vets are )
