Manhasset Animal Hospital

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.
