"If you believe that your pets, be they dogs, cats, birds or reptiles, are as deserving of quality medical care as any member of your family, then Ocean Animal Clinic is the place to bring them.

The office staff and vet techs at Ocean Animal Clinic are not only friendly and kind, they are highly competent professionals, who will work with you to ensure that your pet is seen and then cared for in a timely manner. They communicate clearly, asking pertinent questions about your pet's medical issue, and actually listen carefully to your answer.

Dr. Grudin, in addition to being personable and caring, is a keen diagnostician and gifted surgeon. He has successfully treated several of my pets, including a Bearded Dragon, for serious illness. He too, communicates clearly, in language a concerned pet owner can readily comprehend. If you have follow up questions about your pet's condition or care, you can call the clinic, and if he's not available to speak to you, he will call you back personally. (In my experience not many vets will do that-they relegate it as a task to a staff member).

Further, know that Dr. Grudin and the staff at Ocean Animal Clinic are highly ethical, they will not betray your trust, and take advantage of you at a time when you may be emotionally distraught over your pet's health, to “up sell” you expensive extra products and procedures.

I trust Dr. Grudin and the staff at Ocean Animal Clinic with my pets' health. You can, too."

"Dr. Grudin and his staff have been caring for my adult turtles since 2011 and I cannot imagine trusting another veterinarian with their care. As a college student he was able to help me find ways to improve the care I provided my pets and his payment options (accepts CareCredit!) helped ensure that my pets received the medical attention they needed on time.

His expertise and reassuring demeanor were particularly invaluable to me in early 2014 when I suspected my red eared slider, Torta, might be retaining eggs. He helped calm my nerves and explained what to expect, our options and next steps. He took an x-ray of my bitey turtle and began a treatment plan that lead to her recovered health in no time! And his attention to my pets does not end when I leave the building – I have received very warm and caring calls from Dr. Grudin and Tami asking about my pets' continued health and well being.

I consider Ocean Animal Clinic a part of my family and would recommend their services to anyone without hesitation.

Thank you, OAC!"

"My feline friend, Arturo, means the world to me. He adopted me when he was a tiny, feral kitten who slept in a gallon planting container in my gardening shed. As soon as I was able to catch him, I brought him to the Ocean Animal Clinic where several friends had referred me. That was the beginning of a very special relationship.

Arturo is now 17. Over the years, Dr. Grudin and his staff have been our lifesavers, literally. Due to Dr. Grudin's knowledge, patience, kindness, and diagnostic skills, he has seen Arturo through at least nine lives and addressed broken hips, eating issues, thyroid problems, diabetes and recently a diabetes miracle recovery, just to name a few.

The staff at Ocean Animal Clinic is exceptional – friendly, knowledgeable and caring. They share my concerns regarding Arturo's health and quality of life. Because they've taken the time to know his idiosyncrasies, I have no doubt that when I bring Arturo for appointments or boarding, he's in the best of hands. I feel that the staff at the Ocean Animal Clinic are and extended part of our family."
