As I approach the end of our first year in operation, I find myself reflecting on the moments that shaped our journey together. It’s been a year filled with firsts – triumphs, challenges, & most importantly, the privilege of caring for your pets. As we say goodbye to 2023, I want to express my gratitude for entrusting us with the health & well-being of your cherished family members.
This year was marked by significant milestones for Oath Animal Hospital. We signified our arrival in the community & Long Island, at large, by raising our sign in March. & proudly celebrated our Grand Opening in May. We continue to ramp up & attribute this success to the support you’ve placed in us. Your trust motivates us to provide the best veterinary care possible. We achieved AAHA Accreditation for meeting special standards of veterinary care & facility capabilities. Only 1 of 8 hospitals achieves this distinction.
Technology is integral to our commitment to excellence. From therapeutic laser treatments to cryotherapy to ultrasound, we will refuse complacency. From day one, this facility offers the newest diagnostic equipment & medical technologies that enhance our diagnostic accuracy & treatment options. These capabilities enable us to offer state-of-the-art care for your pets.
New Faces, Same Dedication
In the spirit of growth & evolution, we welcomed new members to our veterinary team. Each addition brings a unique skill set & a shared commitment to the well-being of your pets. Our team remains dedicated to staying at the forefront of veterinary medicine & service, ensuring that we provide cutting-edge & compassionate care.
We actively engaged our community within & beyond the walls of Oath Animal Hospital. Our team presented educational initiatives at schools (Our Lady of Guadalupe). We shared insights on responsible pet ownership, preventive care, & the importance of regular veterinary check-ups with our presence at the Long Island Pet Expo & Fall Festival, & ran in the 5K “Girls on the Run.”
We offered pics with Santa, held food drives (Long Island Cares), & provided Oath gift baskets for charity events (Little Shelter, John Theissen, Nassau Cnty SPCA). We also held a Nassau County SPCA spay/neuter day. Oath Animal Hospital was proud to host a Microchip Clinic as well as Brie-Bear’s Bear Repair to collect 162 stuffed animals for sick children while repairing the cherished stuffies of our client’s children. We raised $1000.00 for one lucky animal rescue by starting a charity fantasy football league, affectionately named, Dr. Funk’s Fantasy Football Invitational or, “The Triple-F.I!”
Our mission will keep us present in the community because we believe that a well-informed community is a key partner in promoting the health & happiness of our pets. Your pet’s best health is a team effort!
Gratitude and Acknowledgment
Lastly, as we close out this year, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to our clients, both two-legged & four-legged. Your trust & loyalty inspire us daily. We are honored to be part of the stories that make your pets’ lives extraordinary. The coming year promises continued growth, innovation, & most importantly, the joy of serving you & your pets. We are excited to show you all that we have in store for you to materialize in the year ahead. I look forward to strengthening our bond with each member of the Oath Animal Hospital community.
We wish you & your furry friends a great start to your new year!
