If you live in Medford or the surrounding area and need a trusted veterinarian to care for your pets – look no further. John Berger is a licensed NY veterinarian, treating all types of pets. Your pets’ health and wellbeing are very important to us, and we take every possible measure to give your animals the care they deserve.

Long Island Spay and Neuter is a full-service animal hospital and welcomes both emergency treatment cases as well as pet patients in need of routine medical, surgical, and dental care. John Berger has years of experience treating serious conditions and offering regular pet wellness care. Beyond first-rate pet care, we make our clinic comfortable, kid-friendly, and calm, so your pet can relax in the waiting room and look forward to meeting our Medford veterinarian.

We are dedicated to helping reduce the overpopulation of cats and dogs through sterilization. Reducing pet population results in less homeless animals and less animals euthanized simply because they can’t find a home. Sterilization also means a healthier pet that lives longer.

Pet owners should not be deterred to spay their pets simply because they can’t afford the surgery. Dr. Berger has performed approximately 20,000 spays and neuters in his 13 years of practice. He has perfected his technique over the years and is able to provide lower costs due to his precise and efficient surgery techniques. Surgery time averages only 5-10 minutes per animal which greatly reduces anesthesia time and chances of complications. All surgeries are performed to the gold standard which includes physical exam, pre-blood work, IV catheter, anesthesia monitoring equipment and pain management.

At Long Island Spay and Neuter, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
