When my nieces dog was sick, we rushed her to the East Meadow Animal Hospital because we had heard such great reviews about it. We didn't have to wait very long to see the vet and the vet was very attentive to the dog. My niece was allowed to hold the dogs paw while the vet checked her out. The vet carefully explained everything to my niece so that she could understand that the dog was going to be fine. I recommend this place for you sick animals.
