VEG Location Opening in Paramus, NJ
I am very excited to be opening Veterinary Emergency Group (VEG) Paramus as the medical director. Opening this hospital with this company, Veterinary Emergency Group (VEG), has been a true blessing and an honor. VEG is a company that has the right priorities and just does the right thing.
They have created an innovative, yet common sense approach to emergency medicine.
The VEG Difference
Their format is unique in that they make commitments that other hospitals are unwell to do.
Speak to an Emergency Vet Right Away
When owners call with an emergency they will speak with a doctor, and be seen right away upon their arrival. All we do is emergency, so we do everything we can to help pets and their families when they need it the most.
You Stay with Your Pet the Whole Time
VEG hospitals make every effort to ensure transparency and comfort for our patients. We do this by sitting on the floor with our patients where they are most comfortable and keep pets with their owners.
One of the most frustrating aspects of COVID-19 has been having to modify this approach; however, we have found new ways to ensure we maintain that commitment during this difficult time. From window front exams to FaceTime videos with hospitalized pets, we will continue to find new ways to keep owners and pets together.
We are all looking forward to the day when we can have owners back in the treatment area with us. Being able to help owners and their pets when they need it most is incredibly rewarding.
We Work with Your Primary Veterinarian
Another aspect that excites me is the opportunity to work with some amazing primary veterinarians in the area.
All VEG hospitals collaborate with a patient’s primary veterinarian to ensure they get the best care possible. Many primary veterinarians have established long term relationships with pets and their families. Their input and direction are always welcomed. We just want to be available in case there is an emergency so that we can get them back to their primary veterinarian.
My dad was a primary veterinarian that owned his one practice. He deeply valued the relationships he built with his patients and their families. So much so that before there was an emergency hospital in our town, he used to bring his patients home with him and set them up on fluids in our laundry room. He would wake up throughout the night to check on them and give them treatments.
Of course, I would sneak out of bed, to help him with his patients. He always wanted to be involved when his patients had to go to the emergency hospital. I understand the importance of the relationship between primary veterinarians and their patients, which is why it is essential for emergency doctors and primary doctors to have a good collaborative relationship. I also know all the time and effort that practice owners put into their hospitals.
VEG recognizes this and makes it a central part of their philosophy.
Team of Dedicated Emergency Vets
I’m excited to be working alongside some amazing emergency doctors that are just as enthusiastic about emergency medicine as me. VEG creates many opportunities for doctors to continue to improve and grow their skill set. They understand that to provide the best care, we must keep pushing to keep up with the latest and greatest medicine. Our learning is never done.
