Dr. Alan Meyer

I have worked in both large and small practices, and have come to realize that I much prefer to be in a small practice. It allows us to really get to know our patients and clients. I have worked with multiple generations of both clients and pets. I think our high level of care, attention to detail, and the relationships we have developed through the years are what keeps our clients and their pets coming back year after year.

Dr. Alan Meyer

In a large practice, you don’t always have the chance to create this kind of nurturing, familial environment. When you come to our Clinic, we’ll treat you like family, and your pets as though they were our own.

I presently have one dog at home - a 4 1/2 year old red standard poodle named Maisie. She’s our family’s fourth standard poodle, and our first red. We’ve also had cats - the last lived to be over 19 years old - fish, hamsters and parakeets at our home over the years. We even have had cats who live at the office - another sign that this is a home. First we had Cinnamon, and then Nala. Both were abandoned here, and we took them in.

I have been President of the Westchester-Rockland Veterinary Medical Association, and have served on its Board of Directors. I am currently a member of that organization, as well as the New York State Veterinary Medical Society, and the American Veterinary Medical Association.

I graduated from the City College of New York in 1964, with a Bachelor of Science. I then attended the New York State College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University, and graduated in 1968, with a a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. I received the New York State Veterinary Medical award at graduation.
