The Manhasset Animal Hospital was a dream come true. I grew up in Manhasset and went to both junior and senior high school here. There was no animal hospital in town so I started looking for a location in 1985. I found this 1923 building and after lengthy zoning hearings I was able to open my solo practice in October 1986. I lived above the hospital for years having only a three second commute to work each day. Today a vet tech lives upstairs to provide our clients with 24 hour care.
