Dr. Michael Arpino, our Medical Director, has trained all over the globe but is proud to call Brooklyn home. As your trusted Boerum Hill vet, he makes sure every veterinarian and staff member at our animal clinic is providing your pet with exceptional service and care.

We are proud of our passionate veterinarians, they include:

Dr. Lisa Sether, a proud Long Island native, has experience as an international spay and neuter volunteer, and she’s certified to perform stem cell therapy on pets. In her spare time, Dr. Sether enjoys cooking, shopping, traveling, and spending time with her family, friends, and dog Luna!

Separate Dog and Cat Hospitals for Brooklyn Pets

At Veterinary Wellness Center, we want our veterinary services to be as stress-free as possible for our patients. We know that new smells, sounds, and strange animals can make a scary experience even scarier, especially when the animals are different species or smaller pets feel threatened by larger pets. That’s why we work hard to keep our dog and cat hospitals separate. Veterinary Wellness Center is actually two separate facilities, and our Brooklyn vets work in both sections to treat their patients without added stress.

When you come to our animal hospital in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, cats and dogs have their own separate entrances.

    • Cats come in on the side, at our Bergen Street entrance, which leads to a waiting area exclusively for feline patients.
    • If you’re bringing a dog to our Brooklyn vet, come through the dog hospital entrance on 3rd Avenue, which looks like our “main” front entrance. This door leads to our dog waiting room and dog hospital in Brooklyn.

    Well Pet Visits

    Regular check ups are important for any pet. Puppies and kittens need to be seen more frequently to make sure they are growing and developing like they should. With well pet visits your Brooklyn vet has a good chance of identifying potential health issues and can frequently treat them before they become a serious issue.

    Vaccines

    Vaccines are required for both cats and dogs. Puppies and kittens need to have their vaccinations spread out in order to assure that they are effective and reduce the chance of adverse side effects. At our Brooklyn clinic, we'll track your pet's vaccinations and help you keep them on track.

    Parasite Prevention - Whether it is heartworm testing and treatment or everyday fleas and ticks, you don't want any of it in or on your pet or in your home. Parasite treatments come in the form of chewables, topicals, and injections, and there are advantages and disadvantages of each method. Your Brooklyn vet can help you decide which course of treatment is best for your pet.

    Spay and Neuter Surgery

    It is generally recommended that most pets be spayed or neutered in order to control the pet population and provide the pet with various health issues, including reducing the risk of some cancers and stabilizing some mating behaviors, Our vets are ready to discuss with you when the best time to spay or neuter you pet may be and help you manage their recovery.

    Emergency Services

    Pets aren't always perfectly behaved, and whether they eat the wrong thing or get hit by a car, our vets are equipped to handle emergencies and will do our best to treat your pet with the care they need and deserve.

  • "Veterinary Wellness Center is fantastic. Very friendly and sensitive to both pets and their parents! I brought my kitty to Dr.Arpino after her appetite had been declining for about a week, and he took very good care of her, and followed up with daily check-ins to see how she was doing. They are very capable and I feel confident that they really know what they are doing. She is now eating again and back to her playful self! I would recommend them to friends and family for great care for your pet."
