Frequently Asked Questions

Ambassador Veterinary Hospital strives to keep you informed about what is best for your pet. We are here to provide comprehensive and compassionate care to animals and aim to provide you with the answers to some frequently asked questions by our clients.

 

If your question is not answered below, please call us at 201-863-4072 or e-mail as UnionCityAVH@gmail.com.

  • 1.   I am a client. What do I do if I have an emergency?

    During business hours, please call us at 201-863-4072. Otherwise, call or go to Oradell Animal Hospital, a 24-hour specialty hospital at 201-262-0010.

  • 2.   Do I need an appointment?

    Appointments are encouraged and can be made at 201-863-4072. However, we also take walk-ins.

  • 3.   How often do I need to bring my pet in?

    We recommend yearly visits, unless otherwise stated by Dr. Manoharan. Pets over the age of 5 should be seen every 6 months to screen for any diseases affecting older pets.

  • 4.   How often does my pet need to be on flea and tick preventative? Heartworm preventative?

    Your pet should be on flea, tick, and heartworm preventative all year. Although certain parasites are SEEN during certain times of the year, the reality is they can SURVIVE (hibernate) in the environment at any time of the year. A sudden peak in temperature, even during the winter, can cause flea and tick activity to resume. Mosquitoes transmit heartworm disease to your pets. The same is true for yearly heartworm preventative.

     

  • 5.   Why should I spay or neuter my pet?

    Approximately 3.7 million animals are euthanized at shelters annually because there are not enough people do adopt. Spay and neutering ensures that your pet is not adding to this number. More importantly, the procedure offers lifelong medical and behavioral benefits. Behaviorally, spayed females will no longer go into heat cycles, ceasing bloody discharge, inappropriate elimination or yowling behavior. Neutered animals are calmer and less aggressive. The earlier female pets are spayed (higher benefits before first heat cycle), the lower the risk of developing mammary (breast) cancer or pyometra (infection of the uterus). For male pets, the risk of prostate cancer, perianal tumors, and testicular tumors are reduced. Roaming pets in search of pets are more likely to be injured in fights or hit by cars. Call us to make an appointment to get your pet spay/neutered today!

     

  • 6.   When can my pet be spayed/neutered?

    Dogs and cats are generally spayed at 6 months of age.

  • 7.   My pet dislikes other animals/people. Can I still bring him?

    Yes. Our practice can make special arrangements. Please inform us ahead of time and we will make sure your pet is seen early in the day or late in the day away from other clients. All dogs and cats MUST be leashed or crated at all times. For the safety of all hospital patients, please keep retractable leashes locked at all times.

  • 8.   Does your practice accept new clients?

    Of course! We are more than happy to have you! Please call us and let us know you are a new client and bring your previous pet records with you so that we may update our electronic medical record (EMR). A fresh fecal sample is also encouraged at your first visit.

     

  • 9.   Is payment expected at the time or service?

    Yes, all services must be paid in full at the time they are received. No exceptions.

  • 10.  What payment options are accepted?

    Cash, Debit, Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover). Sorry, no checks!

  • 11.  Is there a payment plan?

    No, our practice does not offer payment plan options.
