To the clients at Route 516 Animal Hospital,
The decision to leave Route 516 was a very difficult one to make. The quality of medicine, wonderful staff and loyal clients has always made my long commute worth it. It has truly been a pleasure working with everyone to keep their fur-babies as healthy and happy as possible. Thank you for a great 3 years! I’ll miss everyone but I have no doubt that you and your pets will be in wonderful hands.
Dr. Maritza Rodriguez

Despite being a very common and seasonal household flower, lilies can be quite dangerous to cats. These flowers are known to cause acute Kidney disease in cats. All parts of the Lilly are considered toxic, including the pollen. Most of the toxins are found in the flower but even drinking the water in the vase can cause clinical signs in cats. With spring and the holidays upon us, please take care in making sure any holiday or floral arrangements do not contain lilies.
we are pleased to announce early morning appointments starting at 8am on Mondays through Fridays we are also offering home visits including end of life care at home. Call our hospital for more information. Watch our website in the next couple of weeks for updates on new services being offered!
