Those who have pet birds know they can make great companions. Not only are many birds replete with beautiful colors, but their songs can really make a house come alive or their “human-like voices” can amuse us for hours. Like other kinds of pets, birds have unique needs. Birds are well known for being slow to exhibit signs of disease, and for this reason it is recommended that birds be taken to see an avian veterinarian at least twice each year. #veterinarians
Veterinary care for birds at our veterinary hospital serving Ridgewood, Midland Park, Mahwah, Paramus, and all of Northern New Jersey, includes assistance from an experienced avian veterinarian. To learn more, contact Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital.

Spayed and neutered pets live happy and healthy lives, and their owner's have the peace of mind that comes with knowing their pet's offspring will not end up homeless or in a shelter. #Veterinarians #Spay #Neuter

Keep Your #Pet Safe This #Holiday

The holidays are a wonderful time to spend with the whole family, but here are some tips you may not know:

1. Be aware of #Christmas traditions you may not know are poisonous to your pet such as poinsettia, mistletoe, tree longevity products added to the water, and lily plants. Evergreen trees are ok, but not the little juniper berries that are on some species. Amaryllis plants are not poisonous, but will give your pet a nasty bout of diarrhea.

2. Tinsel and ribbon are particularly dangerous to your pet’s intestines, and are likely to cause obstruction or perforation, often requiring surgery...

Just like people, pets may need chiropractic care as well. Chiropractic care is designed to improve the health and function of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Some of the benefits are relief of misaligned or immobile spinal joints, enhanced flexibility and range of motion, and relief from pain without drugs or side effects. #Rehabilitation

This afternoon Oradell Animal Hospital sustained major damage when an MRI machine that was being repaired exploded. Thankfully no animals were injured.  So far eight dogs and one bird have been transferred to Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital, where Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital staff and doctors will assist Oradell Animal Hospital doctors in providing a safe and secure environment for the pets to continue their treatments. Please be understanding if it takes Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital staff a little longer to meet your expectations during this transition period. As always your pet’s health is of great concern to us. Our thoughts are with our friends at Oradell Animal Hospital today. We were happy to help with patients, and wish everyone a speedy recovery.

As you may expect, when pets age, they need special care and attention. If your pet is getting on in the years, a #veterinarian can help him or her enjoy a better quality of life through geriatric care procedures designed specifically to address the needs of older pets. #PetGeriatricCare

Introduction
At Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital serving Ridgewood, Midland Park, Mahwah, Paramus, and all of Northern New Jersey, our staff of certified veterinarians is dedicated to providing the highest quality care to meet your pet's needs.

Dr. Cerf graduated from Cornell University in 1978 and upon graduation was awarded the Malcolm E. Miller Award for Scholastic Achievement. With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Cerf is an accomplished veterinarian who has participated in national and international seminars teaching other veterinarians laser applications and surgery. He has developed new laser surgical techniques including Ultrasound Guided Endoscopic Laser Ablation (UGELAB) which is an innovative technique for treating transitional cell carcinoma (cancer) of the canine urinary bladder. His commitment to animals and the people who love them is demonstrated by his endless pursuit to find new and creative means to diagnose, treat and cure disease, as he states, "to begin where medical books end."

The Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital is committed to helping pets and the people who love them by combining the highest quality of medicine, technology, and service provided by our caring staff. This dedication to consistent excellence, throughout each pet's entire life, is demonstrated by our endless pursuit to find new and creative means to diagnose, treat and cure disease, and to begin where medical books end.

Our History:
In 1972 Dr. Dean J. Cerf, Hospital Director, continued the tradition of the Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital, after its original establishment 150 years ago by the Hopper family of Ridgewood. Dr. Cerf has since developed the 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 with two locations and a grooming salon. 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.
Our Hospital: Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital is a full-service animal hospital accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association. Most importantly we care for your dogs, cats, pet birds, small exotic mammals, and reptiles as if they were our own.
