In July of 1991, Dr. Manderino started her practice at Park Ridge Animal Hospital. The previous owner, Dr. Mikus retired from many years of service to the patients of the Pascack Valley. Through the years, we have provided service to Bergen County and Rockland County residents. The practice has flourished to include 3 staff veterinarians, 7 vet tech/assistants and 3 receptionists. Park Ridge Animal Hospital offers: wellness care and preventative medicine including: examination, vaccinations, microchipping and bloodwork. We also provide a full range of diagnostics including labwork, radiology, ultrasound and other medical services.

Cheryl Welch and the team at FLAH love to see big dogs, little dogs, sassy cats and sweet cats... not to mention feisty ferrets, lazy lizards, beautiful birds, rowdy rabbits and just about any other domestic pet you can think of. In fact, we’ve recently expanded the hospital to give all of our precious patients the best service possible.
