- Dr. Dean Newton
For 20 years, Animerge has served you, your pets and the local veterinary community with advanced emergency and trauma services. We are open and fully staffed at all times.
Animerge was established in 1988 in order to provide emergency coverage during the hours when primary care veterinarians were unavailable. That established our reputation of being a highly responsive emergency hospital that delivered personalized care with the utmost concern for the well being of every patient and their family members. Due to overwhelming community support, in early 2007 we remodeled and enlarged our facility as well as expanded our services to include around-the-clock Emergency Services.
This expansion allowed us to bring in additional services such as specialty care. For your convenience, we now provide care in the specialties of Surgery, Ophthalmology,Dermatology and Oncology by board certified veterinarians, and we welcome referrals from your family veterinarian.
How we work with your Veterinarian.
Animerge works with family veterinarians as a health care partner; we are here to serve as an extension of their practice for emergency and complex cases. In addition, we are always ready to care for your pet's minor to more complex emergencies when your regular veterinarian is unavailable. We cannot replace the total wellness care or valued relationship you have with your family veterinarian, so it is important for you to return to your regular veterinarian for follow-up care.
Our staff works with your family veterinarian in order to keep all pet medical records and any procedures performed up-to-date with current and accurate information. Also, appointments can be made at our emergency hospital for any specialty services including dermatology, surgical, oncology or ophthalmology needs with a referral from your veterinarian.
Our hospital provides pet emergency care and service to owners in the NJ communities of Raritan, Somerville, Flemington and Bound Brook who may require immediate treatment from an emergency vet hospital and are unable to be treated at their family veterinary office. The veterinarians on staff at our 24-hour pet clinic are board certified and trained to handle urgent care situations. Cats, dogs and pocket pets can benefit from our medical services. Our qualified specialists implement a high quality of care for each animal, allowing all of our clients to feel comfortable putting the needs of their pets into our hands.
In addition to our emergency hours, we provide access to a library of veterinary information and helpful articles regarding pet health care via our website. This can help prevent serious problems from occurring and keep pet owners educated on any new changes in pet healthcare or developments in our hospital services. Our focus is to help maintain the health and well-being of all pets that we treat, as well as serve as an educational resource for pet owners at all times.
We are happy to announce that we are also AAHA Referral and Emergency accredited. This is another important accomplishment that we chose to pursue to further assure you that we are committed to providing the best veterinary care possible. Our accreditation in specialty and emergency medicine underscores our dedication to adhering to the principles that allow us to offer the highest standard of veterinary care to our clients and patients. Less than 7% of specialty hospitals are AAHA accredited and we are extremely proud to be a part of this.
