ChinFriends.org - A Safe Haven For All Chinchillas


We may be small and cute, but we do it all here!       

We use imaging technology like digital ultrasound and endoscopy, and perform surgery, diagnostic procedures, dentals, and can provide oxygen therapy and overnight intensive care. We have an in-house lab and can run a blood chemistry sample in 15 minutes using very small volumes of blood. Our licensed veterinary technician provides over-night and weekend care for our hospitalized pets.

We will give your pet a full exam, provide details on proper nutrition and caging, discuss behavior and enrichment, and take diagnostic samples like fecals and other lab work when needed.  We also do vaccinations, grooming, boarding, DNA sexing, and microchipping. Please call us for an appointment.

Our Hours: (631) 424-0300

We will try to accommodate your emergency call during regular business hours, which we have expanded to try to fit your busy schedule. We can also arrange for you to drop your pet off with us in the morning on your way to work. To avoid  lengthy waits, please call ahead because we are not a “walk-in” clinic.  After-hour emergencies are directed to local 24-hour facilities where the staff veterinarians have some exotic training. You can transfer your pet from the ER to us in the morning for continued treatment.
