  • Don't waste your time boarding your cat in a kennel designed for dogs.
    There is an alternative and worth the drive. Cats Only Inn is an exclusive cat boarding facility located in Hillborough, NJ. It is approximately a 30 minute drive from New Brunswick, NJ. It is very clean and competitively priced. Cats are provided individual and quot;cat condosand quot; with perches inside the condo high enough for viewing the outside world. The cats only inn is located in farm country, and is very quiet; no dogs on the property, no barking. This is the third and quot;vacationand quot; my cats have stayed at the Cats Only Inn. Marilyn and Ray are excellent and quot;inn keepersand quot;, and along with their staff, see to the daily care of all the cats that are boarded with them.

  • They love dogs. When the dogs came out of the groomers, they wanted to go back in again! Melissa comes and talks to you individually. She takes notes, and if you do not like something, she takes your dog right back in and fixes it. The staff is so friendly! They also have high quality food and clothes there. The dogs were so clean and happy! They weren't scared or anything. I cannot stress enough how nice they were!

  • Please don't bring your pets here.  I brought my dog in several times for exams, vaccinations, etc.  After waiting a long time to see the vet, they did not do a thorough exam and missed my dog's swollen lymph nodes.  2 weeks later I noticed my dog's nodes were swollen so I brought him in immediately.  I knew that this could be lymphoma so I brought him in right away, cytology and bloodwork was ordered.  A few days later the vet called and said bloodwork was normal, cytology showed no cancer but they wanted to repeat it.  This would take a few more days.  So I wait a week and I am very worried since my dog is getting worse so I call them.  A few hours later the vet calls me and tells me that the repeat cytology showed increased abnormal lymphocytes and it is probably emerging lymphoma.  So I immediately take him to Red Bank where he is diagnosed with stage 3-4 lymphoma.  The cytology showed over 80% abnormal lymph nodes.  Please do not take your pets to SBAH they are not competent and failed to diagnose my dogs cancer in a timely manner.

  • Jacqueline is a very professional and talented trainer.  I have had dogs all my life and trained them myself, up until our recent acquisition, Jinny, a high-drive German Shepherd with a one track mind!  Jacqueline is an accomplished trainer with Off Leash K9 Training, LLC, in Paramus NJ.   She specializes in dog training techniques used by the military and law enforcement, and is consistent, fair, and communicates clearly to both her animal and human students!
         The e-collar is a tool that I had considered purchasing and using on my own with my dog.  I am so thankful that I met Jacqueline, who is an expert with e-collars and taught me to to use it humanely and effectively.
         She is passionate and accomplished when it comes to  training dogs and I would recommend her to anyone who needs
    training help for any reason,  or for those who just want to improve communication and the relationship with their dog.

  • .As usual, the exam was thorough. The vet and technician treated my very huge and very shy dog with patient loving kindness. The vet seemed a bit abrupt with me though when i would not agree to put my dog on the special dog food she recommended. I explained to the vet that I could not afford to purchase dog food that is even more expensive than the brand I now feed her because I will be getting laid off. I assured the vet that I would cut back on her feeding and increase her exercise to help my dog lose weight. The vet seemed quite dissatisfied with my reply and became more insistent. I did not give in and reiterated that incurring more expenses was not doable for me at this point. Still not satisfied, the vet said she would email me the information about the dog food and that it would only cost a few dollars more. I agreed to, at least, review her email.
    Before I left the technician said they wanted to get a urine sample from my dog. They did so, I paid and left.
    A couple days later the vet called stating abnormalities in the urinalysis. She told me to bring the dog in for further testing. I told her I would bring the dog in when I am able which wasn't received that well. Overall, the care my dog receives from Princeton Animal Hospital is excellent, however, it seems that some of the staff aren't as people friendly as they could be. Maybe they are so interested in the animal's welfare they forget to consider the human too? I do understand that an vet/animal hospital would put the animals best interest first, but once a person indicates that they simply cannot afford something, it would be nice to not try to make a person feel compelled to comply anyway. Since I have been using Princeton Animal Hospital for the past 7 years, I'm not sure how their charges compare to other vets/animal hospitals. I wonder if PAH is pricier than most?

  • It goes great. I am still using Rob and will use him in the future. I had knee replacement done the end of August and Rob has been a godsend. My dog loves him. He can't wait for Rob to get here to go for his walk. Rob will also play with him after his walk. Rob is punctual and takes his job seriously. He is also willing to help me put out the trash and recycling and bring in the mail since my surgery.
    Rob has been a great asset, I don't see how we could have made it without him.

  • When our previous dog walker got out of the business we scrambled to interview someone new.  Ultimately, we decided on Aunt Darlene's after interviewing three different services.  She's been in the business for a long time, and it shows.  She is well organized and on top of everything relating to her clients.  We've been using Darlene's service for about 6 months now.  They have been absolutely fantastic.  What we require of them goes above and beyond your typical dog walking.  Our dog had a lot of special needs, some of which needed to be modified as time went on.  We had them coming twice a day, 5 days a week because of these issues.  They have gone above and beyond to accommodate our dog's needs.  They are always on time, always followed the instructions I left for them, always called if there was a question/concern or something I needed to be aware of.  They also have redundant coverage, so if one person is out, someone is always available as a back up.  But 99% of the time, one person is coming in and out of our house,  This was important to us because we had very little flexibility regarding the schedule.  It had to be 5 days a week at fixed times twice a day due to the medical conditions.  We also didn't want a revolving door in our house with different people coming every week.  All the issues with our dog required someone that was there on a permanent basis.  I can honestly say, there is nothing more we could ask of them!  We had peace of mind knowing our dog was in good hands when we left for work.  To top it all off, they love animals, it's not just a job for them.  Our dog adores them as well, often going absolutely bonkers when they come to the house and forgetting about the people that pay the bills!  :)  We continue to use her services 5 days a week and hope to for a very long time!
    If you're looking for a good reliable service, you've found it.  And if you're apprehensive (like we were) about having someone else coming to your house or you're worried because your dog has special needs, talk to Darlene.  I suspect you won't be disappointed.
    A note about the cost written above.  AL makes me put something there.  We spend a lot more than that on a weekly basis.  I didn't put that cost in because it entails the extra time and visits due to the special needs of my dog and wouldn't be reflective of what most people would pay.  But I will say I do feel the cost is fair and the service provided is priceless.

  • The receptionist was pleasant and helpful when I called for an appointment. The assistant was EXCELLENT with my cats. He was kind and patient. He listened carefully and answered all my questions. The vet came in then and examined my cats and answered still more of my questions. It's hard to explain how good the whole experience was. EVERYONE at the location was nice, helpful and seemed like they really cared about my cats. They are a bit pricey but they are close to my house, they have very good hours of operation and everything just and quot;feltand quot; really good. They treated my cats very well, and that's the most important thing to me.

  • I've been using this vet off and on for three years.  I believe the vet is excellent in his skills and the way he has handled my cats.  He's not so good with me.  He seems to need to always be right even if the conversation is not about animals.  He also seems to gear his practice and his opinions to be sure he's not sued, even refusing to answer questions concerning his opinion, if it's counter to standard practice.  The people who answer the phone have been pleasant in the past but in September the person answering the phone was rude and uncooperative.  I just can't imagine ever using the services here again.  This practice is generally known as being very expensive.  When I had my two kitten spayed, the total cost was over $1,000.  At $35.00 the cost of nail trimming is higher than anywhere else I've found.

  • I have been bringing my pets to Dr. Lelkes for many years.  Even though I no longer live in North Brunswick, I still bring my pets to him for their medical care.  He has an amazing way with animals and his fees are unbelievably reasonable.  His office is not fancy, but always clean.  I currently bring my very difficult Persian cat to him for, among other things, her nails clipped.  I have brought her to two other animal hospitals and none of the veterinarians at either facility were able to clip her nails without sedating her.  They also charged ridiculously high fees to do this and I don't like to sedate her for something as simple as a nail clipping.  It is no surprise to me that Dr. Lelkes no longer accepts new patients; there is no facility in this area that I am aware of that provides such quality care at extremely reasonable prices.  He will take the time to answer all questions and concerns without ever making you feel rushed.  Dr. Lelkes is the best!!
