  • Toby is on his way to being himself again

    -Toby from Bronx, NY
    Pet Name: Toby

    We brought our dog Toby to Animal Specialty Center to repair a ruptured disk. We were treated with respect and professionalism from the very moment we stepped into your center. The medication you gave Toby to make him feel better worked right away. The operation went smoothly and now Toby is on his way to his old self again. I would like to say that everyone at the center made us feel like we were at home. We received updates every day on Toby’s status. When we visited him at your center, we were treated with great care and thoughtfulness. I saw how your center care about the animals you treat. It is a great to know there are centers such as yours to help care for our family members. After all Toby is an important part of our family and you made us feel like he was a member of your family also.


  • Great Doctors and Support Team

    -Mina from Irvington, NY
    Pet Name: Bella

    In the past 3 years our family has visited ASC for both emergencies and specialty issues. Dr. Ting and Dr. Budgin are amazing diagnosticians, thorough and incredibly kind as well. The Emergency experience has also exposed us to an incredible team of vets who are clearly passionate about what they do. You always feel like your dog is well cared for in an environment where the people who work there actually like what they are doing and each other. So grateful to have this particular ASC center as part of our dog's healthcare team (two goldens, Bella and Kuma)


  • Thanking you so much

    -Arlene and Arnold Winer from Scarsdale, NY
    Pet Name: Max

    Pet Image Both my husband and I cannot express in words our appreciation for the loving care you gave Max during his recent spinal surgery. We were so very worried when our Max could not jump and play the way he always did and the fact that he is doing that now, better than ever, is due totally to your wonderful group of doctors and technicians.

    Thanks again for everything!


  • Thank you Dr. Budgin

    -Mae Soleiman from Yonkers, NY
    Pet Name: Softie and Smooshie

    I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Jeanne Budgin in April 2009. My cat Softie had been suffering for many months with a skin condition that my vets were unable to remedy and actually had wrongly diagnosed. I was feeling helpless and did not know where else to turn. I did some internet research and learned of this most special dermatologist and the facility she worked at.
    From the first moment I walked into the Animal Specialty Center with my cat, the staff greeted me with a warm and friendly hello. I started to feel comfortable.

    When I met Dr. Jeanne Budgin, it was an instant like. She had me at hello. Her professionalism, demeanor, intelligence and calm reassuring ways were "just what the doctor ordered". She handled my cat with care, examined her in detail and was precise in her visual evaluation. The questions I was asked and the information I was given made for an incredible combination. Dr. Budgin immediately knew what was wrong with Softie, diagnosed her condition and went into full treatment mode.

    I had to bring my other cat Smooshie in as well for she also suffered with this condition. Again, Dr. Budgin and her assistant gave us VIP treatment and treated my cat like a rare jewel.
    Dr. Budgin methodically explained to me what the next few months would be like in regards to the medical care of my 2 cats. She assured me that my cats would be better but it would take time. I followed every thing she told me to do. I medicated my 2 cats, took the necessary precautions and trusted every word she said. Every single word. Never once did anyone ever steer me wrong.

    During the many months of constant care, Dr. Budgin made herself available to me, helped me, answered my questions and never compromised the medical care of my 2 cats. My frequent follow up office visits continued to be smiling and joyful experiences. My cats have healed and are their fluffy, beautiful and healthy selves once again!

    When I now look at my cats, I am forever reminded of the loving and brilliant care they received from Animal Specialty Center, Kathryn and Dr. Jeanne Budgin. The wonderful experience we had is forever etched in my mind.

    The staff is friendly and accommodating. They smile, adore the animals, and welcome you. The facility is clean and they do everything they can to make the experience a happy one. Kathryn is sweet, knowledgable and efficient.

    Dr. Budgin is a true hero. She gave my 2 cats Smooshie and Softie new lives, helping them (and I) through a most trying time, and accomplishing what other vets could not do....curing them and freeing them of their ailments. I have met an angel with Dr. Budgin.

    I still bring my cats to see Dr. Budgin. It is now 4 years later and we continue to be greeted with hugs and laughter. The bond I share with Animal Specialty Center, Kathryn and especially dear Dr. Budgin will always remain. I am blessed to have brought my cats to such an amazing facility. Smooshie, Softie and I are eternally grateful. :)


  • Max is Back

    -Lauren and Cliff Radcliffe from Yorktown Heights, NY
    Pet Name: Max

    Pet Image Four weeks ago our Weimaraner Max was quite suddenly unable to walk, or even stand. Following the recommendation of our local vet at Yorktown Animal Hospital, we brought Max to see Dr. Joseph at ASC. He knew immediately what to do and gave Max the tests, medications and comfort care he needed prior to undergoing surgery the next day on the bulging disks in his neck. The expertise and care delivered by Dr. Joseph, Dr. Berg and their team of assisting doctors and vet techs has happily resulted in Max's successful recovery. He is walking around today with a new confidence in his step, saying "thank you, thank you" with his eyes. This group of professionals is there 100% for your animal,and keep you informed every step of the way. We hope we'll never need emergency care for any of our three Weimaraners again, but if we do, we will not hesitate to put their care in the hands of the staff at Animal Specialty Center.

  • Thank You Dr. Budgin

    -Pam G from Stamford, CT
    Pet Name: Rocko

    In Jan. 2012 we added a beautiful, sweet 5 year old pitbull named Rocko to our family. When we rescued him, poor Rocko was suffering from horrible skin issues! Despite the best efforts of several general practice vets, no one could get to the bottom of it. When we got him he had a file of more than 50 pages and still no diagnosis! The first thing I did was take him to Dr. Budgin. She had been so kind and wonderful to our elderly 16 year old pitbull before he passed, we knew that if anyone could help Rocko it would be her. Dr. Budgin was wonderful! Rocko was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder and he has not only responded to his treatments, he is thriving! Without Dr. Budgin and her wonderful techs Catherine and Claudia, Rocko might never had been diagnosed and treated properly. Rocko LOVES Dr. Budgin and her staff! He is almost embarrassing in the waiting room because he is so excited to see them!
    I can not express how thankful I am to Dr. Budgin and her staff for all they have done and continue to do for Rocko. Without them, my beautiful boy would not be the gorgeous, happy fellow he is today!

    The care that Dr. Budgin and her staff provide are amazing! They truly care about each and every patient. It is clear that they love what they do! I know that when we are there, Rocko is being cared for by a Dr and staff that adore him. Thank you all so much!


  • Best Dermatologist Ever

    -Elizabeth Norment from New York, NY
    Pet Name: Olive

    Dr. Jeanne Budgin, dermatology specialist at ASC, made the last several years of my cat Olive's life the best she ever had. Olive suffered from chronic skin allergies that a series of vets had been unable to diagnose and that caused her aggravated itching, discomfort, and fur loss across her face. Dr. Budgin began a very thorough course of diagnosis and treatment for Olive that included lab work, dietary testing, interim steroid medications, a customized allergy serum, and finally the gradual introduction of a life-saving drug, Atopica. After Dr. Budgin's careful adjustment of dosage, Olive experienced the first consistent relief of her symptoms ever. All her itching ended, she regrew full facial fur and elegant whiskers, and in her later years she was calmer, happier, and more beautiful than I had ever known her to be.

    Throughout our years of working together, Dr. Budgin showed amazing skill and thoroughness, flawless follow-through, and (perhaps above all) total concern and affection for Olive. I always felt Dr. Budgin's professionalism in equal measure with her loving compassion, and I would recommend her without qualification to anyone needing a superb specialist. She's the greatest, and I know Olive would agree.


  • You saved our Mollie

    -Rina and Howard from Teaneck, NJ
    Pet Name: Mollie

    Two weeks and 5 days ago Dr Berg removed a rare skull tumor (MLO) from Mollie's head and gave her a "new" skull. She spent 4 days in ICU at ASC. The doctors, nurses and techs could not have treated her and us better. Mollie is back to her happy self (miraculously) and we are forever grateful. Thanks especially to Dr Berg and Emily for loving Mollie like their own dog.


  • Our Luca

    -Bill Barbieri from Closter, NJ
    Pet Name: Luca

    On March 2nd at 1130pm, our German Shepherd, Luca, lost feeling in his rear legs. We then transported him to a local 24 hour, animal hospital. After they determined that we needed further care, we were directed to The Animal Specialty Center. Being it was then after 1:00 in the morning,coming from New Jersey, and not knowing where we were headed, it became very stressful. Once we arrived at the center that all changed. From the two techs that helped bring Luca into the center, to the full staff that helped us out during the whole process, we knew we were in good hands. All the personnel was genuine and caring. You really need to be an animal lover to work in a facility like this and I believe everyone there is. We wound up leaving to go home at about 5am. Later that morning Dr Joseph called us and gave us our options on saving Luca. Unfortunately we were unable to save him. I truly believe that everyone in the hospital felt our pain in loosing Luca. Again I would like to thank everyone in the hospital for their help, and would would not go anywhere else in the future.
