Our Philosophy:
Basic Pet Care Animal Hospital was established with the aim of providing quality pet care in a gentle, caring environment. We believe your pets are a part of your family and as such we do our best to ensure their health and well being as well as your satisfaction.

We firmly believe that prevention is better than cure and to this end we provide a high standard of preventative health care and advice, as well as the best medical and surgical care.

We believe in taking the time to thoroughly examine each pet and discuss all the findings, exams generally last 30-45 minutes for this reason. We also encourage careful attention to dental health.

We are proud of the modern, well equipped facility and invite you to tour it. We have been accredited as meeting the standards set by the New York State Veterinary Medical Association.

Dr. Peter Lugten
Dr. Peter Lugten

Dr. Peter Lugten grew up in Britain, attending the University of Edinburgh veterinary college. Consequently, he enjoys all things Scottish. He and his wife, an RN, take part in fund raising benefits concerning health care issues on Long Island. The remainder of his time is consumed by continuing education, and, for relaxation, philosophy and politics.

Dr. Lugten was voted Long Island Cat Fanciers Veterinarian of the Year in 2007.

He is always down to earth, and says of being voted 'Long Island Veterinarian of the Year': "I never let it go to my head".

Peter Lugten, BVM & S, MRCVS, received his degree at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland in 1979.

After moving to New York in 1984, he worked at two other Long island animal hospitals before taking over Basic Pet Care Animal Hospital in 1989. Dr. Lugten is a member of the American, New York State and Long Island Veterinary Associations as well as the American Animal Hospital Association. He is also a family man living in Lindenhurst with his wife, twin daughters, his Cocker Spaniel, Belle, and his cat Blackjack.
