About Our Practice
Family-Friendly Veterinarians in Bloomfield
At Essex Animal Hospital, we are fully equipped to take on any problem or concern you may have about your pet. Dr. Ann and Charles Dolin purchased Essex Animal Hospital in 1995 and have dramatically increased the size of their practice and scope of services provided to clients. We are proud to now have the highest quality veterinary medicine available in the Bloomfield, NJ area, and we provide it in a stress-free environment. Our collaborative approach to veterinary services will keep you informed the entire time you are with us, and our appointments are never rushed.
Community Involvement in Bloomfield, NJ & Surrounding Communities
Essex Animal Hospital is involved in a variety of programs designed to help our community and the people who live here. Together, our practice participates in the following programs:
- We sponsor a student from Bloomfield High School for their career development program.
- We sponsor a local college student as they prepare for admission to veterinary school.
- Doctors visit local schools to speak at Career Day Fairs.
- We offer animal hospital tours to any group that requests one.
- We provide discounted care to local police dogs and sheriff K9-unit dogs.
Our goal at Essex Animal Hospital is to provide high-quality veterinary care to your pets and to continue to do that we also must operate as a business. Therefore, we require that full payment be made at the time services are provided. If your pet needs to be admitted to the hospital, we will provide you with a written estimate of anticipated fees and will require a sufficient deposit prior to beginning treatment, with the balance to be paid at discharge.
Please remember this is only an estimate and since your pet's medical needs may change. We will also always keep you informed if we anticipate any significant changes to your pet's treatment cost.
For your convenience, we accept a variety of payment methods including:
- Debit cards
- Credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express)
- Personal checks with sufficient identification.
We accept all forms of pet insurance, as well as interest-free financing and payment plans to qualified individuals using a Citi Health Card or through CareCredit. If you have any financial concerns, please consult a staff member before any services have been performed.
