Animal Medical Center Info

It's hard to tell when pets and animals have something wrong that needs a veterinarian. Unusual behavior could be an early sign of illness or something more serious. We've listed some symptoms below that can help you determine if you need to call or visit the Animal Health Center in the Upper West Side.

LETHARGIC OR UNUSUAL PET BEHAVIOR
If your pet doesn't want to eat or drink or changes their normal behavior around food that is a red flag. Especially if the animal has trouble standing up walking or seems week. Call us to schedule an appointment if this is the case.

FATIGUE OR PAIN?
Panting, crying or pacing shouldn't be ignored and could be a sign your pet is in pain

LAME?
Limping for more than a few hours warrants a call to the animal health center's upper west side office. Paralysis, or more serious symtopms like collapsing needs emergency care.

SWELLING AND/OR BLEEDING?
If your pet is bleeding from the mouth, nose or rectum it calls for immediate attention. The same goes if their eye or eyes are swelling or completely shut.

STRAINING TO GO TO THE BATHROOM?
Cats – if they are straining while trying to go that could be an issue, especially in males as it could be a urinary blockage. Dogs seen straining or having urinary or bowel movements frequently or more than usual is also a sign you need a trip to the vet.

HEAVY BREATHING OR COUGHING?
Heavy breathing or coughing/gagging could be a serious problem. This could lead to seizures in your pet or other neurologic conditions. Call our office right away if this is the case or your pet is shaking or lying on the floor, breathing heavy or salivating a lot.

VOMITING OR DIARRHEA?
Healthy pets vomit and have an occasional upset stomach, but if it becomes extreme, it could indicate a serious problem. Call our veterinarian office in the Upper West Side right away and keep a close eye on your pet. Even if you don't think it is serious, it could lead to dehydration and get worse.

DIFFICULTLY WAKING UP?

Fever, metabolic disease, ingestion of medications meant for people, fluctuation in blood sugar levels, or diseases of the brain can all cause dizziness or fainting. Act on this right away.

PET WON'T EAT OR DRINK?
No pet should go more than a day without drinking. If your dog or cat won’t eat their usual meal or drink water there is usually a serious problem. Call your veterinarian if food is vomiting repeatedly or for more than 24 hours.

Your pet may not act sick but if it goes on for a day or two it needs to be looked at. Coughing frequently, vomiting or diarrhea more than twice or limping and walking funny is never a good sign in a pet.

Small animals tend to have a much faster response to illness and disease. If your pet is less than 10 pounds, under one year, or elderly call our upper west side veterinarian office as soon as you notice something is wrong.

If you worry your pet may be ill, please contact us at 212-724-1231

Testimonials

  • Dr. Haroush doesn't only look after your pet as a professional, but he sees your pet as one of his own. With his extensive veterinary knowledge and fully-equipped hospital, he is able to give you peace of mind when it comes to your pet. The Animal Health Center really is the best place to take care of your pet's problems. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Unlike large veterinary hospitals that deal with a myriad of pets hastily, this private practice gives you reassurance that your pet will be taken care of exceptionally on an individual basis.

  • When our Labrador Max became seriously ill during non-business hours, our local vet referred us to Bedford Katonah Vet Center.  This was a terrible experience, as they gave us no diagnosis but charged us several thousand dollars.  We took Max home against their advice and searched for a new vet. Thank God we found Dr. Haroush! He took Max immediately and saved him.  Dr. Haroush became our family vet and we tell everyone we know about him.  He is a tremendous Doctor and a great man!

  • I want to again thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience and compassion and above all you expertise in diagnostic skills and the subsequent surgery you preformed on Ebony.  You may not remember, but Ebony Star suffered for more than half of her life (4 years) before I found your name one day on the internet when I was desperately looking for a veterinarian that could help her.

  • We cannot thank you enough for saving Cayden. He is such a huge part of our lives and couldn’t imagine being without him. You have made it possible for him to be a puppy again and to enjoy his special life with us. It was such a gift to see him be reunited with his brother, Romeo and how happy they’ve been since his return. Again, thank you for taking such wonderful care of Cayden, we couldn’t have asked for more.
