Hometown Care at VCA Morris Plains Animal Hospital

At VCA Morris Plains, we realize that your pet is a beloved family member. We've been serving the communities of Morris Plains, Parsippany, Tabor, Union Hill, and Cedar Knolls with high quality medical care, while maintaining a friendly and personal atmosphere. We see a vast majority of pets including cats, dogs, birds, ZooMed animals such as reptiles, and wildlife in our hospital, and are proud to provide care to all of them! Our doctors make every effort to be available to answer questions regarding your pet's health care.

In addition to being a full service hospital and boarding facility, we are very proud to be a non-profit wildlife rescue center. We take in many kinds of wildlife. We then care, and treat them as needed. Once they are strong enough, we transport them to one of the rehabilitation centers we work with, where they can continue to grow stronger and more self sufficient in hopes that they will then be released back into the wild.

Because technology is so important for early, accurate diagnosis and treatment of health issues, we make sure that having the most advanced medical equipment is one of our top priorities. Our high-tech hospital includes in-house digital radiography, digital dental radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy, and an advanced operating facility allowing us to diagnose and treat many of your pet's advanced medical conditions right at our hospital.

Early diagnosis and treatment are the keys to long, healthy lives for our pets. Our experience and years of service help keep us at the forefront of the latest evidence-based medicine; but we are still committed to maintaining the same personalized client service we've offered since we treated our first patient in 1956. We strive to create a welcome, friendly environment that facilitates open communication between our clients and our staff. We will be here to guide you, as we see your family members, over the years, become a part of ours.

Local Medical Issues

Having a pet is a wonderful experience. However, there are some zoonotic diseases that you should be aware of. These are diseases that can be transferred from animals to humans, including intestinal parasites, leptospirosis, rabies and tick-borne diseases. There are things we can and should do to protect our pets and our human family members from these diseases. Pets can be protected from many diseases by vaccinations and year-round prevention.

Intestinal parasites can be transmitted through contaminated soil and fecal matter. To protect your pets, they should be on year-round parasite protection such as Interceptor and Revolution. You should have your pet's stool sample checked at least twice a year to make sure they aren't infected and shedding parasites. Humans should wash their hands after gardening or playing outside.

Heartworm disease effects both dogs AND CATS. It is a deadly disease that is transmitted by a mosquito and can be prevented. Both dogs and cats need to be on year-round preventatives such as Interceptor and Revolution.
