Dr Feinsod is a highly skilled and knowledgable vet and surgeon. I had a cat that vomitted alot and a vet that I worked with in another hospital examined him and I was told it was probably a food allergy. After changing his food and no difference I took him to Ani-Care. Dr Feinsod felt his stomach and in 30 seconds told me he felt something wrong like a tumor. Turns out my cat had stomach cancer. Long story short it was too advanced to do anything about. But he gave us meds to keep him pain-free and me and my family time with him we needed to prepare ourselves and spoil him rotten before we had to say goodbye. If it wasn't for Dr Feinsod he probably would have just suffered in silence. I have since used him for all of my pets fuzzy, feathered and otherwise and couldn't imagine going to anyone else. I'm not really the internet review type but I see too many negative reviews (usually for something petty and always giving 1 star never 2 or 3) and not enough good ones for businesses who deserve it. If you aren't bringing your pets to Ani-Care they are missing out! And if you use him too and love everyone there like me then write something good about them!

Writing this after switching vets, I found Feinsod overall very disappointing. At first when I took my bird to him with a broken foot I was very excited I found a vet that could take care of her and he did a great job but eventually the bird died so I continued to take my dogs and cats to him because Anicare was about 2 minutes from my house and it's a pain to switch. However, it soon became apparent that Feinsod had a certain mindset concerning my cats' food. He persistently suggested a brand of cat food that was very expensive, one that I could not afford. Granted, he suggested it because two of my cats are obese (I got them from the shelter that way) so I understood and tried to figure out a way to manage my budget better but it wasn't going to happen. I looked online for other options because it seemed he wasn't going to suggest anything but the expensive kind, which he did at every single appointment for over half of the 20 minutes I was there. I found many sites suggesting wet food for portion control and fewer calories, wet food fit into my budget and I wondered why he didn't suggest it. Next appointment I told him about this and he said that it was a good idea and I should feed them the same brand he suggested but in wet food.
I felt like this was a total disconnect from my last appointment and I began to get frustrated about this whole food issue. I began feeding my cats wet food (cheap stuff) and I saw immediate improvement. I followed the sites' instructions because he didn't give me much of anything in that department. I saw that shellfish can be addictive to cats so I avoided it and went with about a can of food per cat per day. Went back and he started on the whole food issue again and talking about how fat the one cat was and how she matured in the last year so her metabolism probably went down so that was why she gained even though she was on the new diet, that made sense. He mentioned the thinner cat had an oily coat and suggested the expensive food again. I just about had it, I don't want to be talked at and not clued in to what my cats need, I mean give some more options and maybe more directions. Not once had Feinsod given me a portion size or methods of feeding my cats. With the age we live in people have more access to information that they need, hello I found out a hell of a lot more from the internet that from him, so I found myself the number of a new vet. Called Anicare and stated my issues and asked that they fax over the information. Thanks and goodbye! But no, he sends me a letter addressing all of the concerns I had and then some of his...he then explained why he suggested the brand of cat food and his concerns about my pets, most of which were a lot more detailed than what he gave in the exam room.
I noticed a few inconsistencies; he actually said that shellfish was dangerous to cats which he had never said to my face before and he also said that I asked what food he recommended, maybe the first time but the next six? No way. He listed the wrong cat food that I feed my cats, saying it was grocery store brand.its not. And he also said the fat cat had an oily coat which is what he said about the thinner cat, I understand its hard to distinguish when there are two cats in the room. Feinsod goes into a rant about how Anicare carries the expensive brand because it has all these health benefits and that he certainly doesnt push it on people so he gets more sales because he isnt paid by the company to sell itnever crossed my mind but thanks for telling me that. He then goes into another rant about how fat the cat is and how it must be the foods fault since she gained so much weight.now didnt he say her metabolism got slower because she matured? Feinsod writes that he felt sorry that I thought he was pushing one brand down my throat but his concern is for my pets and their health so that is why my last appointment focused on diet and nutrition. No, he focused on the brand of cat food he thinks is the end-all-be-all and I disagreed and he just wouldnt let it rest.
Thankfully, I wont be going there ever again and I suggest you dont either unless your pet eats Wellness brand food and is in the healthiest possible shape. But then why go to the vet?

\r\nDon't go there!!! I brought my German Shepherd in for a routine teeth cleaning in 8/2010 and she has never been the same. Found out she got STREPTOCOCCUS from a dirty needle. Can't prove it, just alleging it. My dog has licked the area where the IV was placed since she came home from her treatment and has not left the area alone since. We have paid more for post-vet. bills trying to get her leg to properly heal than for the teeth cleaning. It has been well over a year and a half, and the area where the IV was placed has not healed, in fact it gets progressively worse. Thanks for ruining my dog's leg Dr. Feinsod. I'm so glad that my wife and I left your clinic after raising your prices three times in less that a year. I would highly recommend that anyone considering Veterinary care steer clear away from AniCare Animal Hospital.\r\n

I recently adopted a one year old lab, and have only been to ani-care a couple of times, but my lab and I both had good experiences. EVERYBODY was friendly, it was easy to schedule and even reschedule an appointment when it was needed, and I feel that my dog is in great hands. The vet there seems very knowledgeable, and the prices were not bad. They were helpful to my dog and I both above and beyond what I had expected, neither of us dreaded the second trip back, and I am glad to schedule future appointments there as long as we continue to experience such an exceptional level of service at Ani-care. I definitely recommend this hospital!!

I have 2 parakeets, 1 parrot, and 2 cats. I've never needed to take the birds to the vet so I never realized that there are not that many vets in the area that able to take care of birds. One of my birds (Cher) broke her leg and the vet we take the cats to doesn't specialize in birds. I was referred to Dr. Feinsod at the 24 hour emergency vet hospital. \n\nI was immediately impressed. Not only was I seen on time, but Dr. Feinsod treated Cher very well. He explained the various options. He told me all the pros and cons and recommended we put a harness on her. When he brought her back from putting the harness on her, he held her like she was one of his own pets.\n\nWhen I received the bill, I was happily surprised at his charges, they were very reasonable. \n\nA few days later, Cher chewed away her harness and I needed to come back in to have it reapplied. Dr. Feinsod reapplied her harness in no time and spent time talking to me about Cher's leg and how it was healing. He also gave me excellent information about birds. He told me about perches and toys that they might like. I was impressed by his knowledge and enthusiasm about birds and glad to know that he was taking such good care of Cher.\n\nWhen, the bill for this visit arrived, I was surprised again. I was only charged for the office visit and not the harness redo. The vet I take the cats to definitely would have charged for that. Dr. Feinsod is an excellent vet and I am glad that I took Cher to him. Trinell Hartranft

My comment is focused on Dr. R. Feinsod, DMV at this hospital. I have had the pleasure of him caring for my Rottweiler, Nala while he was an associate at another Vet clinic in Howard Beach, NY. He takes the upmost care with the animals, and is very passionate about his work. He repaired a torn ligament in my dog's knee in '07 and she is running around as we speak. I can't say enough good words in reference to the quality care he gives. Your hospital's gain is surely our loss!!

Dr, Feinsod is a very intelligent, young vet. with a big heart, who will LISTEN to what the pet owners says and consider what was told to him, unlike another vet I used to use.
He was always good with Lily and tried to think of ways to deal with her problems.
I would highly recommend him. Marcia Heiner

My wife and I are involved in the breeding of pets on Long Island, NY.
New York's loss at Dr. Feinsod going to PA - was PA's huge gain.
He is one of the most knowledgable vets we have ever come across. Dr Feinsod was for years, the "go to guy" at the clinic where he worked. He treated all pets exactly the way the owners would want them treated. He also makes sure, before you leave his clinic, that you have a full understanding of what is going on with your pet.
I thank him for all of his help and kindness while in NY and have no hesitation in recommending Dr Feinsod to one and all.

We took my son's sick snake to see Dr. Feinsod. He spent a lot of time with us discussing feeding, care, proper temperature and many other aspects of this particular breed of snake. He is very thorough and knows his stuff!

Ani-Care Animal Hospital was taken over by Dr. Randon Feinsod, a vet from NYC, who practices up to date medicine, reasonable prices, performs major surgery including orthopedic, and sees not only cats and dogs but exotics with a special interest in reptiles.

We take our cats here, after a reccomendation from our neighbors. Dr. Amin is very nice, and we have been very pleased with the service here. As are our cats. In some "bigger city" vet clinics, we have found difficulty comminicating with the vet, a rushed attitude, and higher costs.

Dr. Amin is helpful and the costs are reasonable. Also, her treatment practices are conservative. We took in our slightly limping 13 year old cat, and the first thing she tried was a half baby asprin, not the more expensive and stressful x-ray. The a baby asprin worked, and we are very pleased.
