Comments : About two weeks ago Dusty-Blue, my sealpoint Himalayan, and I moved to Monroe Township from northern NJ. It was a Wednesday. On Saturday during the wee hours of the morning, my Dusty started crying and writhing in pain. I was horrified especially because I had no idea where I was going to take him. Long story made short, turns out that Monroe Animal Hospital is very close by. I took Dusty to see Dr. Hornstein within a half hour of my calling there and actually speaking to the doctor. When I walked into the office I was greeted by the staff who had already been made aware we were on our way. Dusty was seen immediately by Dr, Hornstein who took charge, knowing exactly what had to be done to help my boy. We are continuing with the treatment plan for Dusty s osteoarthritis and spondylosis. It is two weeks later and Dusty is walking around more than he has done in the past few years. Dr. Hornstein stays thoroughly up to date on pain management and as a graduate of one of the most prestigious veterinary colleges, continues to stay educated in all arenas of vet medicine. What is very important to me as well is that Dr. Hornstein appreciates a knowledgeable pet parent and enjoys an open dialogue regarding the care of the animal. I truly feel that we lucked-out! I couldn t be more pleased (and even impressed) with the level of medical care that Dusty received. You just know that Dr. Hornstein and his entire staff truly care about you and your pet. There is a warm, friendly feeling that you get from everyone and they work exquisitely as a team.

Comments : I recently moved to Monroe Township and needed to find a new vet and Dr. Hornstein was recommended by a neighbor. When I called for an appointment, I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist, so I knew I was off to a good start! When I met Dr. Hornstein I was immediately impressed with his Ã¢â‚¬Å“bedside mannerÃ¢â‚¬Â in handling my 15 year young kitty, Samantha. His first concern was not to further stress her and he handled her very gently when removing her from her carrier. Dr. Hornstein is not only exceptionally competent but his approach to finding a solution to Sam's issue was to start Ã¢â‚¬Å“smallÃ¢â‚¬Â. Sam's food allergies had gone misdiagnosed for many years and Dr. H zoomed in almost immediately and with a simple change of her diet, Sam is thriving! I cannot say enough about how happy I am that I found Dr. H and wanted to pass along my experience to anyone who may be looking for a forward-thinking, bright and very competent veterinarian. P.S. He's also a very nice person!

Comments : The reason we like Dr. Hornstein so much is because, he is so understanding. He has a way of explaining what we need to know in detail. He also gives instructions to take home with you. His staff is very helpful with any help needed. Our two-year old dog Maisey shows how much she loves him, when she greets him with so much excitement. They say dogs know who love them, and Maisey is one of those dogs. Thanks, Dr. Hornstein and staff. Michael,Maria&Maisey Pignatelli

Comments : To say that Dr. Hornstien & his staff are remarkable, would be an understatement. After several years of failed treatments for our cat Dusty, we found a cure with Dr. Hornstien. She is a happy, healthy cat again. Part two: we adopted a two year old terrier mix from a kill shelter a couple of months ago & the poor dog suffered from extreme separation anxiety. Crating left him a bloody mess...& given the run of the house while we were gone showed us what lengths this poor dog would go to not to be left alone. One phone call to Dr. Hornstien proved to be our salvation. He quickly prescribed meds, including pheromones (and yes they absolutely work) as well as behavior modification techniques & within days we found ourselves completely rethinking our options i.e. returning him...finding him a new home, etc... Parnel is now an integral member of our family. We owe a debt of gratitude to MAH for the kindness, compassion & competency we have been shown. THANK YOU.

Comments : My cat Dusty was suffering from a skin ailment for the last 2 years that resulted in a large, oozing, lesion on her belly. After taking her to several different vets and trying a variety of medications and treatments, I began to lose hope that we would ever find a realistic and effective treatment. That was until we took her to see Dr. Hornstein. He was the only vet that listened to us and cared enough to find a treatment that worked. I can't tell you how many other vets just prescribed a medication over and over again even though I told them it was not working. Dr. Hornstein offered us several different treatment options, provided a realistic prognosis for each one, and eventually found a treatment that did the trick! For the first time in 2 years, my cat, Dusty, is not licking herself incessantly, and she no longer has a large wound on her belly. Dr. Hornstein has truly been a lifesaver my cat and myself. We can't thank him enough!

Comments : As a large Siberian cat my owners felt I potentially had special needs but Dr. Hornstein & his wonderful staff have cared for me for years now as though I am their own kitty. They've skillfully guided us through my time as a kitten all the way into my current young adulthood with personal & professional TLC. My family would highly recommend Monroe Animal Hospital to anyone looking for excellent care for their pet. On a side note - Dr. Hornstein has continued to display exceptional character by assisting my family with getting our littlest one to the car safely during torrential rain storm today after our routine appointment! Dr. Hornstein rocks!

Comments : What a wonderful vet, we cant thank him enough, my older dog had close to a 5 pd lypoma and I was a worried mother, about an older dog 13 years old, effects of anethesizia, surgery, and he took such wonderful care of the dog, follow up care, was through in pretesting, to make sure nothing went wrong, reasonable rates, and my dog is doing fine, and I will have her G-d willing with his help and care, and G-d, for a nother few years, I hope and pray. Thanks to wonderful Dr. Hornstein. I t took me a while to find him, even though he was right up the street, but worth every penny of my dog's life and care.

Comments : After several cold and impersonal visits with my last vet, I felt it was time to make a change. I was beginning to think they were all the same. Then I had to attend a BNI meeting for my employer (something I dont normally do) and, "surprise", one of the guest speakers was Dr. Hornstein. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. As I listened to him speak that morning, I said "I found our new Vet!" I have owned several dogs over the years and met many vets...Never have I met a man so dedicated and caring! He is not only thorough, but calm and understanding, and the love for his profession shows! He, himself, calls with test results and takes the time to explain each and every detail of what is happening. The Animal world is lucky to have someone like him!

Comments : I have never met a physician with the caring and diligence for his patients as I have continuously experienced with Dr. Hornstein and his capable staff. When I first arrived at Monroe Animal Hospital I was afforded a guided tour of the facility and was immensely impressed with the state of the art medical equipment necessary to treat and care for his patients. Both of our pets were subjected to in-depth surgical procedures and both my wife and I were confident of Dr. Hornstein's professional expertise. During the first few days of their respective recovery, Dr. Hornstein personally called my home several times a day to check the progress of his patients. He cares and is extremely dedicated to the care and well being of all animals. Both Anne and I are grateful to him.

Comments : I recently contacted Monroe vet in a panic on a Saturday afternoon. After spending hours in the ER with my Shih Tzu who had a toxic reaction to a flea treatment. I called on them because my vet was closed, and I was very concerned with how she was still acting. Without being a patient, they took the time to see us. He immediately made me feel at ease. Told me that almost instantly what the problem was, contacted Poison Control, and spent an hour with us. I was very impressed with his service. Thank you Dr. Hornstein, Lucy is doing SO MUCH better! I did call poison control twice since Saturday evening, but tonight she is almost back to herself, even chased the cat a little!

Comments : We had many vets, but there was something special about this one when Lady joined the ranks of pioneer clientele as the animal hospital first opened years ago. Over those years, Dr. Hornstein and his dedicated staff truly did a superb job extending the life of our beloved shelty Lady to a full, happy life of 12 years despite complications that haunted her health since she was a pup. This week, the time had come and my mother had to make the difficult, brave, and unselfish decision to let Lady go and finally end her suffering from kidney failure. I have never seen such sincerity and sensitivity from past vets as I did with Dr. Hornstein as he counseled the family up to and including the point at which we all had to say our final goodbyes to our little girl. Ending an animal's suffering in this manner, especially one considered part of the family, is never an easy decision to make let alone witnessing the passing of his/her life before your eyes. What we saw in Dr. Hornstein's office a few days ago was our Lady making the transition from extreme suffering to a painless sleep with gentle sedation. The entire staff, although surprised at the flash mob that packed Monroe Animal Hospital's parking lot, was patient and ever so caring as they let our mixed family of humans and one husky pour in last minute to say our final farewells to Lady. Dr. Hornstein did not rush us, but encouraged everyone to participate in this unforgettable farewell before he brought her to her humane and gentle final rest. Other vets would have tried to sell services that would have just drained her quality of life and our finances, but our doctor told us the painful truth about the so-called alternatives and would not allow us to prolong her excruciating pain any longer under his roof. This is one of those rare doctors who would choose to do the right thing- backed by science- over profit seeking motives and emotionally exploiting his patients. Most importantly, he along with his excellent staff treated us with the same care and compassion as they do with their furry patients. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much.

Comments : We had recently had our doggie Ben's teeth cleaned at the Monroe Animal Hosp. in Monroe, NJ, by Dr. Steven Hornstein, I can't emphasized enough how very pleased we were with the wonderful care and outcome of the whole procedure. Dr. Hornstein is an extremely qualified and excellent veterinarian w/a state of the art facility and most courteous & efficient staff; Unfortunately, we do not live in Monroe, NJ but will definitely use his services for our puppies when we would be in that area. Thank you Dr. Hornstein! Vito, Jeannette & Stephanie Scarola

Comments : If you aren't looking for the run of the mill Vet we highly recommend Dr. Steven Horstein & his Staff: Dr. Hornstein is quite the Professional, and his Love for the Animals comes shining through,he is also quite friendly which makes the Parents of the Pet at ease also. The Office is immaculate, no Pet odors! State of the Art Technology. Fabulous Staf; Carolyn, Dharmi & Shannon. When your Pet has his or her appointment the Dr.spends Quality time, so your Pet is not treated as a number. He also take his time to explain things too the Anxious Family Members. When the results are in he calls to discuss and also follows up with results via email.When a problem arises he tells you to come right in. Our Woodrow is 10 years old with issues, we adopted him at 2 and we believe that he was previously badly abused. The Dr. takes his time and makes our Dog and Us very comfortable. The Holiday Season is also quite a treat as the Dr. dresses as Santa and Caroly, Dharmi & Shannon are the Elves, you then can have your Pet's picture taken! There is also a Menorah at the Event. Also during the course of the Year there are many different Seminar's offered. So in a Nutshell, if you are looking for the best Vet and Staff who are true Animal Lovers and kind to your Animal this would be a perfect fit. Thank you, Dr. Hornstein, Carolyn, Dharmi and Shannon. Kind regards, Mona & Marty Passner

Comments : When I moved, I didn't think I would find a vet I liked as much as the Vet & Staff I had, but when Monroe Animal Hospital opened, that problem was solved. The knowledge, professionalism and genuine concern of Dr. Hornstein and his staff always put me at ease. Dr. Hornstein stays knowledgeable on current technologies and equipment. The new laser treatment machine he has sped up one of my cats healing when she hurt her leg. To see her run around again with her sister.. chasing each other and jumping over furniture like they normally do makes me smile every time. During the year, the office has several fund raising events to support animal shelters and also gets involved in the community. I like logging on the to web site to see pictures of the other clients' animals dressed up for Halloween or visiting Dr. Hornstein dressed as Santa Claus. Dr. Hornstein doesn't just treat the animals, he explains the diagnosis and the treatment. I can't find the words to explain the comfort and confidence I feel when I need to bring my fur babies to the office

Comments : Hi Dr. Hornstein~ i would just like to thank you again for that awesome tour of your facility. We had no idea you would be so thorough, and take us to all of the areas in which you work. It was truly fascinating for both the adults and the children. The moms are telling me that the kids are still talking about how much fun they had, days later! Even my eldest member who is 18, gave your tour the ultimate compliment-- he said it was "pretty cool". On behalf of all of the cavy crusaders and their parents, i would like to thank you for letting us spend an informative and interesting evening at your hospital. Sincerely, Carolyn Craig

Comments : What a breath of fresh air it is to deal with Dr. Hornstein & his wonderful staff at Monroe Animal Hospital, after dealing with our former vet(s) of 20 plus years! Being new to the area, Dr. Hornstein and his staff were immediately helpful when called for our first emergency with one of our cats (after our move) and just last week with another emergency with one of our dogs. Heidi was seen soon after I called and scheduled for surgery the following Monday. She is doing beautifully thanks to Dr. Hornstein. And Thenk You, Doctor... for calling to find out how my husband's hospital visit went. That means alot!!! See you tomorrow for Heidi's follow-up.

Comments : Dr. Hornstein is a gem! We started using him when our 2 dogs were playing and 1 needed a stitch, and our Vet at the time couldn't squeeze us in (and, instead, told us to put pressure on the ear and come in 8 or 10 hours later. Dr Hornstein said "come on in now" and we've been with him ever since. We now have 3 dogs (a parson russell, a 1/2 jack russell & 1/2 unknown and a 1/2 yorkie & 1/2 bichon) ... and Dr Hornstein couldn't take better care of them. Office is clean, staff is VERY animal-friendly and we couldn't be happier with the care the dogs receive. We recommend Dr H very highly, and tell all our friends about him

Comments : Dr. Hornstein and his staff are absolutely amazing. Unlike some of my other experiences with Vets in NJ, this one is state-of-the-art, clean, and above-board on every level. Every visit is extremely comprehensive. The Dr. takes time with you and your pet and explains every detail so you can make informed decisions. He lives and breathes his profession which is a rarity these days. I highly recommend!

Comments : When I brought my rabbit Sam in to see Dr. Hornstein for the first time, I was surprised to find that I had been wrong for 7 years in believing Sam was a male. Upon informing me that Sam is actually a female, Dr. Hornstein recommended that I have her spayed urgently, due to the high incidence of uterine cancer in unspayed female rabbits. I quickly scheduled the surgery, and lo and behold, she had a malignant tumor on her uterus! Because the tumor was removed in time, the cancer had not spread, and now, a year later, Sam is a perfectly energetic, healthy rabbit. I am so thankful that I stumbled upon a veterinarian who is knowledgeable about rabbits and who is proactive about preventive care! Plus, the bedside manner of Dr. Hornstein as well as that of the vet techs is excellent... they completely understand how to calm down a very nervous rabbit (which, sadly, seems rare based on my experience at other animal hospitals).

Comments : I must echo the accolades of other reviewers regarding Dr. Hornstein and his staff. Upon our first visit to Monroe Animal Hospital, Dr. Hornstein took us on a comprehensive guided tour of his facility, which is extremely neat, clean, and equipped with the latest in veterinary medical equipment and technology. Dr. Hornstein's knowledge of his profession is impressive, and he is eager to entertain and answer questions regarding our pets' medical treatments, dietary needs, and overall behavior in layman's terms. Follow-up phone calls from the doctor are a matter of routine which illustrate his concern for the welfare of his patients. Although his hospital is state-of-the-art, the overall atmosphere is that of the gentle caring and personal attention depicted in the "country doctor" paintings of Norman Rockwell. During a recent routine visit, a passing motorist stopped with a wild rabbit that had been struck by a car. Dr. Hornstein immediately began emergency procedures in order to stableize and treat this little patient. It was no one's pet, but it was an animal in need of care. Dr. Hornstein's staff, Carolyn, Dharmi, and Shannon, are always helpful, courteous, and professional. My wife and I enthusiastically endorse and recommend Dr. Steven Hornstein and the Monroe Animal Hospital. We seek the best of care for our 8-year-old Maltese, Molly, and 1-year-old ragdoll cat, Eliot, and we trust Dr. Hornstein and his staff to provide this very important service. One further note: It's worth a visit just to check out and admire the doctor's animal-themed "necktie-du-jour"!

Comments : Thank you for saving Cleopatra's life. Words cannot express our gratitude. When she was rushed to your office experiencing insulin shock you and your wonderful staff started emergency tx to reverse her low glucose level. You are so much more than a Vet. Compassion, concern, immense knowledge and state of the art technology are why our 14 yr old cat is with us today. Carolyn is such an asset to your practice. You could not have hand-picked a better person. Shannon completes the office picture. Cleo may have used up one of her lives but THANKS TO YOU she is better than ever. Louis&Marion

Comments : We had lost our beloved dog Samantha to a horrible sickness. I knew I would get another dog and I wanted to find a vet and his staff that I would feel confident and comfortable with. I interviewed Dr. Hornstein before we adopted our dog Skylar. Once we adopted her we started seeing Dr. Hornstein. He has been there for us everytime we needed him. He has been wonderful with Skylar and knows exactly what she needs when she is in need of a vet.He is very updated with all the newest knowledge and equipment. If I need him, he gets on the phone immediately if available or calls back asap. If office is closed you get his answering service and they contact him and you speak to him immediately. The office is very very clean and his staff is wonderful. I cannot say enough of how nice Carolyn, Dharmi and Shannon are. I am very happy that we found Dr. Hornstein.

Comments : I recently moved to Monroe, and I'm extremely pleased with Monroe Animal Hospital. I highly recommend the practice. Dr. Hornstein is a great vet who cares about his patients and knows how to treat them; it's that simple. Best of all, he doesn't pretend to know everything, and will do research, consult with other vets, and refer his patients to specialists if he thinks that's best. It takes a confident, caring veterinarian to be able to admit he can't know everything about every specialty. That said, Dr. Hornstein is very knowledgeable, and it's apparent that he loves animals. That's very important to me. He's always available, and makes follow-up phone calls to make sure your pet is doing well. If you have to call when the practice is closed, the answering service simply takes your message and Dr. Hornstein calls you back; the service doesn't put you through a dozen questions to make sure you really need to speak to Dr. Hornstein before giving him the message. The staff is extremely helpful, kind, polite, and caring. My Italian Greyhound had to have an ultrasound (she was eventually diagnosed with colitis), and the receptionist kindly chatted with me because I was so nervous because I knew Sunny would be scared during the scan. The way the staff acts and treats customers tells me a lot about the doctors, because they always get the staff they want. I've found that when the staff is mean or unhelpful, the doctor wants it that way or doesn't care. Dr. Hornstein's staff is top-notch, and he obviously cares about the way his patients and their owners are treated. The office is very neat and clean, and there's no animal smell, which is hard to do in a vet's office, I think. You also get good records of what happened at each visit, which is very helpful in case you have to go to the emergency vet. All in all, a great practice.

Comments : Just wanted to express my thanks to Dr. Hornstein and his staff for taking such great care of our furry family member, Buddy. It is true that our pets do have a sixth sense because Buddy seems to know he's safe and receiving the best of care. I even received a follow up call from Dr. Hornstein to check on Buddy's status. The township is very fortunate to have the Monroe Animal Hospital and Dr. Hornstein as part of the community.

(She's doing much better) I don't know if it's your policy or if your Vet. tech (I can't recall her name right now) is just so sweet. But we really appreciate it.

Comments : We can't thank Dr. Hornstein enough for his care and concern about Jenny, the June 2008 case of the month. Jenny is a 9 1/2 year old american spaniel. Without his diagnosis, Jenny wouldn't be with us today. She was discovered to have seriously elevated liver enzymes, despite having no outward symptoms. She underwent Gall Bladder surgery, and has recovered well and quickly. She is currently on a medical maintenance regimen. Her recent tests were just about normal, and she's back to herself in record time. Thanks, Dr. H!
