Where Pets Come First!
A pet can bring a lifetime of joy, love and treasured memories. With those happy moments comes a special responsibility to care for the needs of your animal friend. We believe your pet deserves the best veterinary care New Jersey has to offer - and Oakland Animal Hospital takes great pride in making sure your pet is treated like a member of the family. In short – we make veterinary care a family affair.

Oakland Animal Hospital was founded in 1963 by Dr. Henry Peinecke to offer modern compassionate veterinary care to the animals of northwest Bergen County and nearby Passaic and Morris Counties. In 1979, Dr. Robert P. Gordon became the director of the hospital.

Since 1963 Oakland Animal Hospital has grown from a single veterinary practice and a small staff to three veterinarians, 7 veterinarian technicians, and 9 support staff. Our goal is to make veterinary care a family affair; that is why we believe that you should see the same friendly faces at the door and your pet should receive the same love and care that you give at home.

At the Oakland Animal Hospital, the human animal bond is a top priority. We carefully select our staff based on their training, people and animal skills. Our staff is made up of people who love their pets, just like you. By carefully selecting our staff, we can ensure that your beloved pet is being cared for in a compassionate, caring, professional atmosphere.
