What To Expect

Shelter Island Veterinary Hospital welcomes you to our warm, inviting, and comfortable environment.

We want your visit to Shelter Island Veterinary Hospital to be the best veterinary experience you ever had! We’re all animal lovers here and we work hard to create a warm, inviting, and comfortable environment for you and your pet.


When you check in with our front desk you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly and courteous team members. A member of our medical staff soon meets you in the lobby and brings you to an examination room where we’ll ask a few questions and measure your pet’s vital signs – just like when you go for a visit to your doctor!


A Shelter Island Veterinary Hospital veterinarian will then meet you and your pet and spend some time talking with you to address your concerns, recommend additional diagnostic testing if needed, and create your pet’s individual care plan.


If additional testing is needed, Shelter Island Veterinary Hospital is a modern facility with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and an in-house laboratory, so most tests can be performed here.
