  • Description
    Banfield Pet Hospital of New Hyde Park is located to serve Queens residents but still convenient for western Long Islanders. This Banfield is at the intersection of New Hyde Park Road and Union Turnpike, inside of PetSmart.

    Our entire staff is cross-trained and educated in veterinary health care. We feel that having a versatile staff allows us to partner with you and provide quality care for your pet. New Hyde Park, like all Banfield hospitals, places heavy importance on preventive care. We can help make vaccines, fecal tests, heartworm tests, and other routine procedures more affordable through our Optimum Wellness Plans®. Although preventive care is our focus, the overall health of your pet is our highest priority.

    We invite you to stop in any time to meet our team and schedule an appointment with our doctors.
