     4/19/13   5     2     3     2   I brought my puppy there for his initial series of shots. Both the staff and Dr. Cattiny are very nice, although I did feel a somewhat rushed once seen. The office looks a bit dingy. The only issue that I had was that I called after hours concerned about my dogs response to his shots & got no response. The message referred me to Fairfield Animal Hospital for which I was very uncomfortable with because I had brought another one of my pets there on an emergency visit and was gravely misdiagnosed. I left several messages for Dr. Cattiny, but never received a call back - not even the next day. I had to call them. Made me wonder what would happen in the future if I needed him after hours.

Click to report rating    4/1/12   5     4     4     5   12/12/2011 was a day full of surprises. About 2:30 in the afternoon, we took our two dogs out on a much loved ride. On Route 287 our lives changed. We were hit by a **** driver traveling about 100 MPH. Both our dogs were ejected from our car. Storm’s leg was broken in seven places and Shadow ran across all six lanes of 287 into the woods. A Good Samaritan took Storm to Dr. George while the ambulances took us to the hospital where I stayed and my husband went home the next day. We asked Doc the cost for Storms treatment. He NEVER approached us to change his original estimate although it was clear his treatment surpassed the quote. Shadow was found the next day after a cold night in the woods and cried all the way to Dr. George where he stayed for a week. His team is caring and work hard. We are very grateful. We’re all back together and it truly is a miracle. Doctor George helped make this happen. RID: 33286

Click to report rating    1/26/12   5     5     5     5   Dr Cattiny is a great vet and an honest man. I was told by another vet my golden had a torn ligament and needed surgery.I went to Dr cattiny to do the surgery. He said your dog dosnt need surgery.He suggested cold laser therepy at $30 a treatment vs surgery at over $1000.After 1 treatment I noticed my dog limping less,within a handfull of visits no more limp.This saved me lots of money and spared my dog the pain of surgery.Dr Cattiny could have easily done the surgery and I would have not questioned him and would have paid the bill,but he was honest enough to suggest a cheaper less painful alternative that worked.I recomend Dr Cattiny to all my friends with pets and anyone else needing animal care.

Click to report rating    5/2/11   5     5     5     5   Dr. Cattiny is the worlds greatest vet! I can't imagine any of the bad ratings to be true. I've worked with this vet for many years and would put the life of any of my animals in his care ANYTIME. He is the most accurate, competent and caring vet that I have ever worked with. His knowledge and experience is far superior than 99.9% of vet you will encounter. Many of our clients use Dr.C and I have yet to hear anything other then glowing reports! He is the "go to" guy for anything/everything. Dr. Cattiny is one of the most respected vets in the Northeast region and for good reason! RID: 24758

     4/12/11   3     5     5     5   It comes as no surprise that any negative review would be written against this Doctor here as well as on other sites. I am here to set the record straight. The negative review dated April 6 TH was written by an ex disgruntal Vet Tech who was fired recently and is desperatley seeking revenge and conspiring with a disgruntal,nasty,drama filled employee who still works there conjuring up complete fabrications and nasty vile lies. Anyone that knows ,Dr. Cattiny, has no doubt nor question that he is a fantastic doctor who has an impecable reputation. I suggest this Vet Tech just call it a day and get over the fact that neither you or your Mommy figure will benefit from trying to slander this Doctor. RID: 24340

Click to report rating    4/6/11   5     5     5     5   I can't comprehend how anyone could be unhappy with Dr. Cattiny. He always takes his time with patients, eases the worries of owners, available for questions or consolation. Totally dedicated to his patients,insists on perfection from his staff (and they live up to his expectations:) Not more expensive than others just more caring and careful. No place is better than PLAH IF you want the best for the pet you love. He goes over and above the call of duty. RID: 24154

Click to report rating    4/4/11   2     2     1     1   Any doctor that would so easily crop ears, dock tails or declaw without informing it's patient's of how unnecessary it is, is a kind of person who is there only for money. Those procedures are out of style now. I overheard his technicians speaking when I was there with visit that they would never use him as the doctor and they always use Dr Day. That was my last visit there. RID: 24115

Click to report rating    7/1/10   5     5     5     5   We came to your hospital as an emergency visit for an ear hematoma surgery that would not stop bleeding. Bosco was taken care of right away and left your hospital as the happy lab he is. Our other dog, Jovi has addison's disease. The medicine and certain tests that were needed for her were explained in ways, we could understand. During follow up visits, we experienced compassion, love and knowledgeable answers to all our questions. We are so thankful to be able to take our dogs to a vet where they are looking out for the best of the animal. Like many, our dogs are part of our family. We are very attached to them. When something is wrong with them, it can be very scary. Your staff put all our nerves at ease with their dedication. Our friends and family have already been told about your excellent care. We cannot thank you enough. RID: 18616

Click to report rating    5/18/10   5     5     5     5   Kind, compassionate and highly skilled. Doc & staff are the most kind, caring & professional group I've ever met. Doc is always there for your pet or for you to comfort and advise. 20+ years bringing my treasured "fur babies" to him and I would never go elsewhere. Dr. Cattiny is the most dedicated vet & understands how the owners feel. Doc is honest.. more interested in your pet than the almighty dollar. Dr. Cattiny is a perfectionist and it shows not only in his medical ability but alos in the cleanliness of his office and the manner in which his staff present themselves. Agnes RID: 18001

Click to report rating    11/20/09   5     5     5     5   I have 4 huskies and i travel 45 minutes to see Dr Cattinny. I have gone through more vets than one can imagine. he is worth the drive. his care and attention are remarkable. how many vets do you see get on the floor kissing and petting their patients to get them comfortable before getting to work? not many. my one husky scares most vets. when we introduced my husky to dr cattinny, my dog was ready to go home with him. the drugs maybe a little high, but if its enough to keep him and his shelter and his vet business going, i'm willing to shell out a little more. this man is remarkable.

Click to report rating    11/11/09   5     5     5     5   my choc. lab was diagnosed with kidney failure in june. she goes everyday to PLAH for fluids and because it takes 45 mins Im allowed in the back room with my dog while she gets her treatment. i see every thing that goes on behind the scenes where the techs and dr cattiny work on the animals. the techs are great with all the animals and seem to really care about each one of them. dr. cattiny's head tech Jim has been in the field for 15 years and is unbelievably knowledgeable so when ever the dr isn't there, which seems like never, my questions or concerns are answered. As for dr cattiny where do i begin. the concern and love this man shows for every animal that comes thru the door be it a regular patient or an emergency is unbelieveable. closing time is never closing time as dr cattinny will stay till whatever hour of the nite to make sure everyone is cared for. he runs his own shelter out of pocket. what a great vet and even better man god blessed us with dr cattiny RID: 15286

Click to report rating    4/30/09   5     5     5     5   Dr Cattiny is nothing short of remarkable. My Little Bichon, Cookie Girl wasn't given much hope by other Vets when she needed surgery. So I kept searching. Then I found Dr.Cattiny. He took the time to explain to me the procedures needed and was extremely caring, attentive and reassuring. Cookie had her teeth cleaned, growth removed on her chest and a hysterectomy. I took her home 2 1/2hrs later and her recovery was speedy and no scars. Four years later she needed surgery again. I had absolutely no fears. I knew without a doubt she was getting the best care possible and once again a speedy recovery at age 13. Cookie is, because of Dr. Cattiny, here today and is Happy and Healthy. I have referred several people to him and all speak very highly of him and are very grateful. I personally would not bring Cookie anywhere else, because I love her dearly and she deserves the best. The staff has also been kind and caring on every occasion. I can't Thank Dr. Cattiny and his staff enough. RID: 12646

     3/23/09   3     4     1     1   I had my Boxers ears cropped there and Dr. Cattiny completely destroyed the surgery! My dog has two different sized ears and it cost me over $550! He said he's been doing them for 15 years but I know people who worked with him in surgery and IF he had 1 ear crop in 2 years he was lucky! I was lied to and ripped off! Vets should stick to sick animals and shots not plastic surgery for dogs!!! I told him the ears were different sizes and he tried to assure me they aren't but i'm not blind! I got 2 more opinions and they said he butchered my dogs ears and did a horrible job! I even went to a breeder and they were discusted with the hack job he did! Now my dog will look like that for the rest of his life! I love him all the same but I want my $ back! We'll see if that happens! Beware!!! Don't let him do anythingcomplicated to your animal!!!

     3/10/09   1     1     1     1   I recently had a visit to Dr. Cattiny's office with my 2 dogs. One dog has tested positive for erlichiosis a form of lymes disease. I received antibiotics for him at the cost of 168.oo dollars a dollar a pill. That is a 60% mark up of the drug as compared to on line vet meds. I requested a prescription and was told that the vet doesn't like to give prescriptions from the woman at the desk. I told her I was a health care worker and if I could have the dosages so I can get a script filled by a doctor. She responded to me very off handedly "well good for you" in the end I paid the money as my dog was ill. I called the following day, twice to speak to Dr.Cattiny and was told "he will get back to you". He never called. Talk about fleecing your customers!!!! RID: 12038

Click to report rating    1/2/08   5     5     5     5   While visiting my Daughter and Son in Law for Christmas, my small Multipoo was hit by a car. Dr Cattiny and staff took immediate action to help my little guy.I cannot thank them enough. He told me with aggressive care he should be fine. He was put in Oradell Critical Care, and 5 days later was home with my Daughter and Son in Law. He has a long way to go before he can fly back to me, but if it wasn't for Dr Cattiny, he would not be alive today! Thank you all RID: 6820

Click to report rating    4/5/07   5     4     4     5   I wish there were more vets like Dr. cattiny. His kind is in short suppy. I live in Bergen county and ended up there becasue I was tired of paying high prices for bad vet care. I have used more than 7 diffrent vets in the past 15 years and I found his practice 2 be the best. Sorry to say being a single Dr. practice he is booked very far in advance for animal surgeries.
