Welcome to the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at Animal Health Center, where specialized veterinary, medical, and surgical care is provided for animals with neurological diseases.

Animal Health Center at Veterinary Village is the only privately owned, state-of-the-art animal hospital in the tri-state area to have 24/7 access to the most advanced non-invasive diagnostic tool, the 1.5 tesla MRI, considered the golden standard in human medicine.

This superior imaging modality uses a 1.5 tesla to produce superior contrast resolution of images that can be manipulated real-time for enhanced viewing. This powerful magnet is most effectively used to scan organs, soft tissue, and enclosed structures. Plus it’s diagnostic superiority and non-invasive nature make it ideal for pre-surgical planning.

The MRI is the most accurate and effective option for diagnostic imaging- plus we will provide you with a radiology report within 24 hours.

At our state-of-the-art animal hospital, our team is headed by board-certified neurologists and veterinarians, each specialized in the neurological diseases of animals. Our expertise in neurologic assessment and our full range of non-invasive diagnostic imaging methods allow us to quickly and effectively provide treatment plans for patients with neurological disorders.   Our deep commitment to employ the most cutting-edge and least invasive methods, ensure that under our care, each animal will experience the best quality of life possible.

Testimonials

  • Dr. Haroush doesn't only look after your pet as a professional, but he sees your pet as one of his own. With his extensive veterinary knowledge and fully-equipped hospital, he is able to give you peace of mind when it comes to your pet. The Animal Health Center really is the best place to take care of your pet's problems. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Unlike large veterinary hospitals that deal with a myriad of pets hastily, this private practice gives you reassurance that your pet will be taken care of exceptionally on an individual basis.

  • When our Labrador Max became seriously ill during non-business hours, our local vet referred us to Bedford Katonah Vet Center.  This was a terrible experience, as they gave us no diagnosis but charged us several thousand dollars.  We took Max home against their advice and searched for a new vet. Thank God we found Dr. Haroush! He took Max immediately and saved him.  Dr. Haroush became our family vet and we tell everyone we know about him.  He is a tremendous Doctor and a great man!

  • I want to again thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience and compassion and above all you expertise in diagnostic skills and the subsequent surgery you preformed on Ebony.  You may not remember, but Ebony Star suffered for more than half of her life (4 years) before I found your name one day on the internet when I was desperately looking for a veterinarian that could help her.

Luna is great as stalking and surprise attacks on the other cats. Thank you for your knowledge and compassion “for the animals”. I appreciate everything you and your staff has done for me and giving Luna a life she deserves.

  • We cannot thank you enough for saving Cayden. He is such a huge part of our lives and couldn’t imagine being without him. You have made it possible for him to be a puppy again and to enjoy his special life with us. It was such a gift to see him be reunited with his brother, Romeo and how happy they’ve been since his return. Again, thank you for taking such wonderful care of Cayden, we couldn’t have asked for more.
