Long Island Veterinary Specialists (LIVS) is one of the most respected centers for specialized veterinary care in the world. This reputation of excellence was forged over years by dedicated and extensively trained professionals whose main goal is to provide the highest quality of advanced medical and surgical care to companion animals. We at LIVS recognize the importance of the bond between companion animals and their families and strive to preserve and promote the quality and length of life of our patients. We appreciate the anxiety that pet owners experience when a beloved pet is confronted with an illness, and will do our best to reduce this anxiety by optimizing patient care as well as communication with pet owners and family veterinarians. Promoting and reinforcing the bond between pet owner, family veterinarian and the veterinary specialist is a fundamental principle of our hospital.
In addition to the compassion and experience of the personnel at LIVS, our facilities are "state of-the-art". Not only does LIVS have the typical array of advanced equipment generally found at a specialty veterinary center, but we have the most advanced forms of this equipment. For example, at 3.0 Tesla magnet strength, our MRI machine is twice as strong as the "standard" 1.5 Tesla strength magnets found at the vast majority of veterinary specialty centers and many human imaging centers (higher strength magnets mean better images with shorter anesthetic times). The doctors and support staff at LIVS have also pioneered several diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and treatments. For instance, non-invasive thermographic imaging was developed for use in dogs at LIVS.
