Our Hospital

At VCA Toms River Animal Hospital, we've helped pets live long, healthy and happy lives since 1956. We work hard to deliver the best medical care for your pets, as well as the best experience for you, the owner.

Our veterinarians, technicians and other pet-friendly support staff are trained to the highest standards. Their thorough knowledge of the latest procedures and medicines ensures that all our patients get the best in prevention and healing care.

Hospital Overview

Toms River Animal Hospital has been serving Toms River, Beachwood, Bayville, Pine Beach, Manchester, Brick, and the entire Ocean County since 1956. Over that time, we have grown into a state-of-the-art pet care facility with an exceptional nine-doctor team. Our doctors use their more than 130 years of combined veterinary experience every day to help keep our patients in good health and feeling great.

We are committed to offering the best possible care for your pets. Our doctors strive to keep at the forefront of veterinary medicine to ensure that we are offering the latest treatments and procedures available. Our exceptional physician team treats dogs and cats, as well as exotic pets. Our Medical Director and Boarded Internist, Dr. Michele Reimer, will often tell us that if a client can fit his or her pet in the car, we can see and treat the pet. We are excited to announce that Dr. Suzanne Ellis is now offering house call services! 

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.
