Internal Medicine We emphasize preventative health care for your pets. Wellness exams are the cornerstone to ensuring your pet remains happy and healthy. Our wellness exams include tailoring vaccinations and laboratory screening to your pet's individual needs.

Video Otoscopy for deep ear canal evaluation and treatment.
Radiology - high quality and fast results with ability to share images with specialists.
General Dermatology including diagnosis and treatment of parasites, infections, allergies, and skin biopsy.
Ophthalmology - Due to his special interest in ophthalmology, Dr. Leon Mendlowitz seeks out continuing education in this field. Our practice offers care for many ocular conditions including superficial and deep corneal ulcers, glaucoma management and eyelid diseases. We often work with local veterinary ophthalmologists and cooperatively manage your pets condition, when referral is necessary.
Behavior - Our doctors in cooperation with our veterinary assistant, Christine, help diagnose and advise for a variety or behavioral conditions including anxiety/phobia, inappropriate elimination problems, cognitive dysfunction, and aggression. We work closely with a local veterinary behavior specialist when referral is necessary.
Surgery Pain management is an essential part of our philosophy regarding surgery. We provide pain relief before, during, and after your pet's procedure. We also perform pre-surgical laboratory tests in order to tailor an individual anesthetic protocol for the safety of your beloved companion. Surgeries performed at Lyndhurst Animal Clinic include:
Exploratory Surgery/Foreign Body Removal
Growth/Mass Removal and Biopsy
Declaw and Dewclaw removal
Aural Hematoma Repair
Cryosurgery - Distichiasis
Cherry Eye Repair
Anesthesia - We incorporate a variety of anesthetics in order to ensure the safest protocol for your pet. We use the latest equipment to aid in monitoring heart rate, blood oxygenation, electrocardiography, blood pressure (Doppler and Oscillometric) and use mechanical ventilation.
If you are apprehensive about anesthesia for your pet, please ask our doctors to explain how our anesthetic approach is as safe as possible. Our patients generally rest easier at home the night of their procedure (with the exception of cats undergoing declaw surgery who stay in our clinic for two nights). If further observation is necessary overnight, we will refer you to the 24 hours specialty hospital.
Dentistry Our main surgeon, Dr. Alisa Taddeo has a passion for surgery, but one thing that makes her heart skip a beat, is dentistry. Dr. Taddeo keeps up with the latest information. Our dental procedures include full mouth oral radiographs with our digital X-ray machine. Every tooth is probed, cleaned, and polished in your companion's mouth. After Dr. Taddeo's oral evaluation, she will devise the best plan for your pet and discuss with you, the owner, if any oral surgery is required, including extractions. If extractions are needed, we step up our pain management protocol and perform oral nerve blocks in your pet's mouth.
