    • This is Fanny and me. We, or I guess she really, are now in the fourth week after her CCL operation almost to the day that her other knee was operated on a year ago. Both by the wonderful, magical, and caring Dr. Haroush. Last year, pre-pandemic, with a looming scare, a big price tag and months of rehab in front of us, Dr. Haroush, Jose and the rest of this magnificent team treated us immediately, helped us in more way we could count all with the kindest and most knowledgeable of treatments. Fanny felt like it was another home and we felt like we were welcome to be as neurotic as we could be about our dog. She healed up quickly and then like clockwork which Dr. Haroush said might happen, it did again, the other knee. Now it was even worse with the Pandemic in full swing, money really tight, time tighter, it felt so huge and totally overwhelming. Did Dr. Haroush come to the rescue? He certainly did. Again, she is healing nicely, we are healing along with her and I would never send her to another vet as long as she lives. Dr. Haroush and team are spectacular in their wisdom and care. Along with treating Fanny it was like he was treating me for all the insanity we are all feeling right now. Everyday and beyond the care was present. And most of all Fanny feels loved and taken care of. What more could you ask for. I wish it was all this simple.

    • 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.

But, through your skill, talent, & expertise, you helped bring him back to health. Dominic is definitely his old self & receiving lots of love. Each member of your staff treated us in the great professionalism & courtesy. And your follow up through phone calls was really excellent.

    • 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.
