Caring for Wayne’s best friends for 25 years!

Dr. Stephen Neuss founded Packanack Animal Hospital over 25 years ago. We’ve grown to four veterinarians now, who are supported by a full staff of excellent technicans and an extensively-equipped facility – including a digital x-ray, a comprehensive in-house lab, a modern surgical suite, and even our own ultrasound machine. We are open 6 days per week, so you can always get in to see a doctor.  We couple modern, medical excellence with highly compassionate care.

Puppies, kittens, adult and senior pets can all find friendly staff and homey comforts in our beautiful, modern facility.  When you bring your pet to our animal hospital, you not only come to a veterinary practice, you come home to family.

We offer same day appointments, because we know that when something is off with your best friend, you want to get them checked out right away.  Just call us at 973-305-3652 and Jalyn or Cecilia at our front desk will get you in to see one of our doctors ASAP.


Reasons Our Clients Love Us


Expert, Loving Doctors

Packanack Animal Hospital’s doctors have decades of experience, and they will care for your pet as they would their own family member.  Our doctors and nurses entered veterinary medicine because of their love of animals.


Complete, Lifetime Care

We’ll care for your four-legged buddy from their first vaccine, through adulthood, and into their geriatric years.  Each stage of their life requires specific care, and we’ll make sure they are happy & healthy.


Fear Free Handling

Our staff is trained in modern, fear-free techniques that minimize the stress your pet feels during their appointment.  We also use fear-free colors and pheromones through our facility.


Open Sundays!

We know it can be tough getting to the vet during the week given work and kids’ schedules. We’re one of the very few veterinary offices open on Sundays, making it easier for you to make appointments.


Certified “Cat Friendly”

We work hard to earn the “Cat Friendly Practice” certification from the American Association of Feline Practitioners.  Packanack Animal Hospital has a dedicated exam room and waiting area for feline patients.


Fair, Upfront Pricing

We’ll present you with a full estimate before beginning any treatment, and answer any questions you have. We also work hard to present a range of treatment options when possible to do so.
