New Clients

Our veterinary team in Poughkeepsie, NY welcomes you and your pet!

At Arlington Animal Hospital, we put our heart and soul into each and every client interaction. It’s our commitment to both you and your pet which has kept pet owners coming back to us for over three decades! We know that visiting the V-E-T can be stressful for pets, so we do everything possible to make your visit with us as pleasant as possible.

From the first moment you arrive to the time you depart; you’ll notice the difference that comes with the care your pet receives from Arlington Animal Hospital.

What to Expect



When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted warmly, and we’ll usher you into an examination room after checking in your pet. Alert our team if you have any specimen samples.

Pet Medical History

In most cases, one of our veterinary technicians will start by asking about your pet’s medical history, current condition and the reason for your visit, gathering data for the doctor.


Then, one of our veterinarians will examine your pet, ask you further questions and then may recommend diagnostic tests if needed. Once the tests have been run, which can usually be done in the practice, your doctor will discuss a possible diagnosis and treatment plan if warranted.


This is a great time to ask questions. Our veterinary team wants to make sure you’re completely comfortable with the information we’re providing.

Follow Up Care

Our veterinary technician will come back to wrap things up and will provide you with helpful pet care information and answer wellness and care questions for you. Our front desk staff will process your payment and schedule any needed follow up.

Our Promise

Our goal is to see all our clients and patients on time, and although we have contingencies for emergencies, there will be times where the unexpected will create delays. We will ensure these are minimized as much as possible.

The veterinarians are amazing. They are talented vets who are sensitive to not only the needs of the pets, but pet owners as well. I had an emergency with my cat Inky and was able to bring him in 15 minutes before they closed. I plan on going nowhere else for my pets care.

Very caring and attentive staff. Wait time is very low. They don’t overbook. Everyone working there obviously love animals. Best vet around, and not overpriced.

This is the best vet I have ever taken my pets to. The staff is very invested in the health of your pets and ensure they are well taken care of.

I brought my Milo here when he wasn’t doing well. They made me feel like my dog’s life mattered and not just another income for their business. They gave me words of encouragement and gave me hope when I had very little to spare. I will never forget them being there in my time of need.
