I have to disagree with John Y.. I am so thankful to everyone at this Animal Hospital.. I brought my 3 dogs there for their care.. Dr. Rothstein is a very caring man as is his staff.. My Lily was diagnosed with cancer and everyone there made sure Lily and I were well taken care of.. Lily crossed over at the end with minimal suffering but with much compassion. My 17 year old Sam the Bichon is getting wonderful care there as well... I will not go anywhere else! Thank you so much Saugerties Animal Hospital!!
DANGER LURKS IN SAUGERTIES! – Danger lurks in Saugerties when you use this sham vet. People like him until something tragic happens to their animal. Person after person with horror stories to tell. Run don't walk in another direction from this place! Convenient for you because you live in Saugerties? Is that like it's convenient for you to tie your dog up and run into the supermarket and when you come out there is no dog there? Drop the convenient and get your butt to Rhinebeck Animal Hospital, or Roundout Valley Animal Hospital or even to Southpeak..but do not take a chance on an unpredictable level of "care" at this house of horrors!
THANK GOD FOR SAUGERTIES ANIMAL HOSPITAL FOR OUR LUCY! – We are so thankful to Dr Rothstein and Dr Jackson as well as the staff at Saugerties Animal Hospital for the care received by our Shih Tzu, Lucy. A month ago, Lucy, our 17 month old puppy developed a "shaking, almost like seizure;" after 3 visits to the Port Ewen Animal Hospital and Woodstock Animal Hospital within a week time and not getting any satisfaction other than sending us home with a sick puppy and each time charging us .... we called the Saugerties Animal Hospital on a Thursday morning, were told to bring her in within a 2 hour window and upon seeing Lucy were told to leave here there so they could try to determine what occurred .... although the results were not extremely conclusive, Dr Rothstein took the time to keep us updated daily and even Dr Jackson called us on Easter Sunday to give us updates ... a week later we brought Lucy home and each day she is getting stronger and back to being the adorable, cute, loving "little girl" that we have come to love. Thank you Dr Rothstein, Dr Jackson and your entire staff .... we will continue to use you for the care of our Lucy who is a big part of our family!

BEST BY FAR – I have been going to this animal hospital for many years.
I have never had a problem with the doctors or the
staff. They have been courtious, friendly and full of
useful information. Most of the 'dog people' I know love
Dr. Rothstein and Dr. Jackson and we are getting to know Dr. Lang as a caring, compassionate man.
He recently helped me through having my Mastiff, Morgan, cross over and was so very kind and gentle.
Dr. Rothstein and Dr. Jackson have cared for many of
my dogs and always with their well being in mind. They also try to keep cost down when they know I am on a very limited budget.
At the dog park, we know many, many people and their dogs and welcome them into the 'pack'.
We do not welcome Butter's owner as he does
not follow dog park rules and is a 'know it all' who refuses to accept blame for his failures in training and
I, highly, recommend the Saugerties Animal Hospital
as one of the best by far in all the many years I have
had dogs in my life who got the best care from them.
Thank You, You work Miracles – All we can say is THANK YOU.
We have been boarding our 12 year old Golden in Saugerties for years.
In August, We explained to the boarders that Lady was having some urinary problems, (not contagious) & that she also has arthritis. They asked if she had tried Chinese Herbs? We said no. They asked us to get a copy of her records from our vet.& said they would take her to the Vet while we were away.
We went away again in September & asked them if they could take our Lady to see the Vet while we were away. .They said they would take good care of our baby,
When we brought her to Saugerties, she would not eat, cried all the time, she had problems going up & down the stairs, Lady could no longer climb onto the couch or bed. She was one very sad dog.
I thought we were going to have to have her put to sleep, or perhaps she would die while we were on vacation.
When we came back from our vacation Our Lady was back to normal. Lady was given a combination of traditional western medicine, & Chinese Herbs & recommended a change in her diet & actupuncture.
When we picked up our baby she ran to us, tail wagging. You could just see & feel she was 100% better.
We were very surprised to receive a call giving us the results of her urine cultures & to make sure we understood all of the instructions.
Lady has been taking her herbs for over 1 month, She is as active as she was when she was a year old. Wow, to see her like this is a miracle. We have our Puppy back!
We spoke with Dr. Rothstein today,and will be calling to make an appointment for Lady
Good Vets Lousy Staff Kennel Cough My Dog Suffering – I had to stop using this as the Vet for my beloved dog Butter a beautiful friendly loving Golden Retriever as I could not stand or tolerate the way we have been treated repeatedly by one of this Hospitals main receptionists...and the often largely arrogant staff..
I was warned when I first started taking Butter named for my old friend mentor and hero Paul Butterfield that they were very arrogant there by a number of knowledgeable dog owners, but never thought they would transfer this arrogance and prejudice to my beautiful loving friendly dog of now 15 months..
Apparently you must meet her approval to be allowed to be a cash paid in full customer there...she this nurse Ratched is the ultimate gate keeper and arbiter of who gets care or not, or timely care or not...
At times when care for Butter was most crucial she takes advantage to demean and degrade you with her boundless arrogant snotty attitude that does all it can to thwart access to the Vets for your beloved pet...and this has now again more than once brought him to harm and even needless endangerment and suffering as she did again today..!
When he was due to be fixed as agreed between myself and the doctor and this arrogant staff prevented and denied us, me even a chance to make an appointment for the procedure as Rothstein and I had agreed several times..with her "I won't even ask him..!"
This might be mostly for single males who are apparently the designated dogs to be kicked at Saugerties Animal Hospital by this main and influential receptionist...and staff maybe were not the proper demographic group or fit their preferred chosen profile maybe they don't like Italians or artists or disabled or men who aren't emasculated wimps...
At times pleading with her to ask the Vet she tells you she won't "even ask him" for you, so you can get care for your pet..
It's not enough to pay through the nose, you have to be supplicant and subjugate yourself to her for the honor of paying through the nose for access to these Vets..
I think these are fine Veterinarians and liked them but if you can't get access to them or ask them a question of proceed as has occurred in my experience with him as you and the Vet have already agreed and planned ahead of time due to some power tripping Receptionist what good are they..?
Maybe me and my dog beautiful loving dog Butter just aren't good enough for them...
I'm going to add to this again later and greater detail too upset and trying to help care for Butter until I can get him to his new Vet...
He's injured his right front leg jumping into the Esopus retrieving logs as he loves to do...limping some and favoring it, lifting it at times to show me he's hurt but this cruel mean woman did nothing but give us a hard time trying to get in to see these esteemed high and mighty vets to get him the help he needs..how ignorant and arrogant and prejudiced can you be..?
I don't care if you approve of me but don't take it out on my beautiful loving friendly dog Butter my constant companion..!
When he was left to be fixed he came home with Kennel Cough, they acted as if we or I did something wrong! I had to argue to get a 2nd prescription of antibiotics to get rid of it and call repeatedly for the honor to even speak with an actual Vet....me who has met multiple Presidents and had the highest access to the heads of government agencies and knew more than half of the greatest legends of my generation..
Good medical practice is about listening and communication, Rothstein obviously doesn't get this, he smiles to your face and let's his Staff treat you second rate if even that well..
Excellant Practice/Outstanding Reputation – Dr. Rothstein and his colleagues Dr. Jackson and Dr. Cohen have an outstanding reputation in the Hudson Valley. He has been in practice for almost 40 years It is certainly a busy practice, but the focus is on what needs to be done. Staff ARE courteous . At 5:30 PM is is a very busy place - which always excepts an emergency - most people understand and wait patiently if that happens.
Dr. Rothstein has been treating my dogs for 17 years with expertise, compassion and a nice dose of humour.
He is simply outstanding and so are the other doctors who work at Saugerties Animal Hospital.
No great shakes – They have treated our two cats. one is on Hill's Prescription Diet. They changed the formula and we had to get another vet's prescription to buy the one he really needs. Also, they don't honor Hill's coupons, although HIll's says they should (this stuff is expensive). We just picked up prescriptions for both cats and they had mixed-up the meds. Good thing my wife remembered who took what. True, they were busy that day, but it could have turned out very bad.
BEWARE: Dangerous Place – This is a very dangerous place for your animals. No kidding but this Rothstein character is known in some local circles as Dr. Death! I know of a dog that he was starving to death..poor dog was so skinny that his eye socket fell in and his legs kept collapsing. Owner finally got wise and took the dog to another vet..they had to fatten him up to save his life. Dog was 75 lbs and should have weighed 125 lbs and Dr. Death Rothstein kept telling the owner that the dog was too fat. FAT? This vet has to retire and not soon enough. There are other horror stories around.
great vet! – dr. jackson and dr. rothstein have cared for my pets for over 12 years - they go above and beyond to make sure that your beloved, furry family members are healthy and happy. i have had several emergency "porcupine" incidents over the years and dr. jackson did not hesitate to meet me at the office after hours and pull each and every quill out of my dingbat bulldog's mouth and palate -stitched her up when she faced off with a groundhog - and they took care of her 8 pups beautifully. we recently adopted a new puppy and are absolutely going to stay with our vets and feel confident that she will thrive under their care.
