Riverside Veterinary Group, located at 219 West 79th Street in the heart of the Upper West Side in New York City, has been a continually running veterinary care practice since 1953. In it's present incarnation, it was purchased in 1994 by Dr. Kasanofsky and Dr. Raclyn and completely gutted and reconstructed.
We were recognized in 1996 as an AAHA hospital, meeting the strict standards of quality established by the American Animal Hospital Association. Riverside Veterinary Group is one of only a few elite privately owned veterinary practices in Manhattan that have achieved and maintained AAHA certification
Our veterinary hospital uses the latest in veterinary care technology including computerized electrocardiographic monitoring equipment, non invasive blood pressure measurement devices, pulse oximeter, isoflurane anesthesia, in house laboratory, as well as offering a full compliment of alternative veterinary medicine, including acupunture, electro acupuncture, and a host of alternative therapies that simply don't fit in any particular category. We're proud of the way we integrate Western Medicine with Alternative Medicine, and think we've achieved a level of care that is beyond the sum of the two modalities.
Riverside Veterinary Group is a smaller practice than Riverside Animal Hospital, and that means even more personalized attention, shorter waiting times and even more treats for your pet! Despite our smaller size, we do offer a convenient location and the same high quality of medical care that you and AAHA demands.
We had a major renovation in Sept 2005 and the hospital still feels new. Stop in to say hi, or just play with the kittens we usually have in the waiting room for adoption.
