About Us

Welcome to Valley Cottage Animal Hospital

Since 1980, Valley Cottage Animal Hospital has provided high-quality medical and emergency care for pets in the Valley Cottage area. Fast, comprehensive emergency care; wellness care for dogs, cats, birds and exotic pets, and advanced veterinary technology are available for pets in White Plains, Rockland County, Nyack, Putnam, Orangeburg, Haverstraw, Palisades Center, New City, Nanuet and the surrounding area.

Valley Cottage Animal Hospital is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and our dedicated veterinarians and staff are always ready to care for your pet. All pets are treated at Valley Cottage Animal Hospital, from dogs and cats to birds, rabbits, pocket pets, snakes and others. Our practice has grown rapidly since Dr. Russ Petro first opened the hospital’s doors almost three decades ago, but our commitment to our clients and their pets has never wavered.

At Valley Cottage Animal Hospital, we work together as a team to provide compassionate, comprehensive health care to all pets and to exceed the expectations of their families. As a full-service veterinary clinic, we provide wellness exams, vaccinations, diagnostic care and surgical procedures for pets in White Plains, Upstate NY and the surrounding areas.

Our veterinarians and staff are deeply involved in the local community and donate their time to numerous volunteer organizations. We provide free healthcare and vaccinations to animals at Hi-Tor Animal Shelter in Pomona and sponsor local rabies clinics and community events such as Rockland YouthFest and the Dog Walk for Cancer. We are pet owners ourselves and we understand the special bond you share with your dog, cat, or exotic pet. Our goal is to work with you to strengthen that bond through compassionate veterinary healthcare in a friendly environment. We strive to exceed your expectations 24 hours a day.
