At Veterinary Center of Morris County we offer a variety of services to care for your pet.
If you have any questions or would like more information on how we can care for your pet, please contact us today.
We believe that regular checkups and wellness exams are critical to your pet's wellbeing. These wellness exams give us a chance to evaluate the overall health of your pet while also giving us a baseline for their own unique bodies and tendencies. Not only do these exams keep us up-to-date with your pet's health, they also allow us to detect potential problems before they become serious. Your pet will be thoroughly examined by a veterinarian and this checkup gives us vital information to help keep your pet healthy.
We believe the best way to promote overall health is through preventive care. Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pet's health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems.
We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
We believe that one of the most important aspects of caring for your pet's health is vaccinating them against potential diseases. There are a variety of diseases that affect our pets and animals, so proper vaccination is vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to.
It's important to consult with us about the unique risks of living in our region. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, as well as, provide you with information on the required vaccinations for your pet.

Congratulations! Adding a new puppy or kitten to your family is an exciting event with many fulfilling years of special companionship ahead of you.

It's important to bring your puppy or kitten in for a full nose-to-tail exam, and to get them familiar with our veterinary hospital from a young age. There are numerous topics to be aware of and discuss, including vaccinations, nutrition, behavioral training, socialization, and many more. Call us today at 973-887-0522 and we can give you all the information you need to care for your puppy or kitten.
We are so happy that you have found another member of your family, and we are excited to meet them!
We provide care for your pet through all stages of life. Since pets age faster than we do, it's easy to forget that they can be considered seniors after just seven years. And as they get older, their health needs change in unique ways that require proper consideration.
We will work with you to develop a health plan that is right for the unique needs of your senior pet. Nutrition, exercise, and the prevention of common problems through regular exams are all ways to help your senior pet stay healthy.
As a pet owner, you want to make sure your pet has the highest quality of life as they age. With proper care, they may even get more time to spend with you and your family, so educating pet owners on proper senior pet care is very important

In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pet's health. There are a lot of different ways to improve your pet's dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection.
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings, including the area beneath the gums that you can't see or access at home.

The use of radiology is safe, and all of our staff are highly trained. It is our goal to provide your pet with the highest level of medical care possible, and this is just one of the many ways we achieve that.
We offer state-of-the-art medical technology. One of the diagnostic tools we use is ultrasound, which creates images of the inner workings of the body.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to offer a non-invasive, painless, and radiation-free method of imaging your pet's internal organs. This is one of the many ways we are dedicated to providing your pet with the best care possible.
By using ultrasound, we have yet another powerful tool at our disposal to detect, diagnose, and prevent illness in your pet.

Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to over-feed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems as they get older.
