At our state-of-the-art facilities, we feature the latest advancements in veterinary medicine. Like those who visit us, we share an abiding love for animals. We provide each of our patients with the same high-quality care we would recommend for our own pets. We have dedicated our professional careers to seeing that life's important animal companions are treated with the care they deserve.

Our History

In 1982, Dr. Dean J. Cerf, Hospital Director, continued the tradition of the VCA Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital, after its original establishment 150 years ago by the Hopper family of Ridgewood. Dr. Cerf has since developed the VCA Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital into one of the most advanced and respected veterinary hospitals in New Jersey. He has grown the hospital into a six doctor practice. The skilled support staff has grown from three people to over fifty caring professionals, who complete a rigorous training program consisting of oral, written and practical exams, as well as participation in continuing education programs.
