I have been using Dr Cataldi’s veterinary services for 24 years. Dr Cataldi and his staff are very knowledgable, compassionate, and extremely attentive to make sure all of your needs are met. I have recommended his services to many people who love him also. In emergencies he will call you when the office is closed for the day and that is something that’s very important to me. In conclusion I would recommend Dr Cataldi to anyone that truly cares about what’s best for their pets needs.
