If we can help you help a pet keep all of their teeth, they’ll live a longer and happier life.
When it’s time to take your pet in for a check-up or treatment, you can expect abundant time, care, and attention during your visit at Marbletown Animal Hospital. “We encourage happy visits,” says licensed vet tech Laurie Nocerino, who’s been part of the care team for almost a decade.
“For patients who don’t enjoy coming to the doctor, we make extra sure they get extra love and treats. The goal is the least possible stress; obviously, that makes a much better day for us, as well.”
To that end, the hospital has pursued Fear Free training, which requires partnering with you as the pet parent to reduce fear and stress, minimize physical restraint, and help the two of you deepen your connection. Marbletown also supports the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI), which spotlights the importance of the relationship between animals and humans through science, education, and advocacy.
This is a place where animals and their well-being are cherished and taken seriously, sometimes in ways you wouldn’t expect; putting feline pheromones on a towel on the table with an anxious cat, for example.
In addition to excellent care, Marbletown Animal Hospital offers every service your furry companion might need under one roof. “Our main goal is preventative wellness,” says Laurie, “so we encourage annual wellness and dentistry exams. The goal is to see your pet when they are healthy and catch any problems that come up before they get too serious, and help the humans master things like at-home oral care; if we can help you help a pet keep all of their teeth, they’ll live a longer and happier life.”
They’ll be happy to help you get a new pet spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and on the road to carefree wellness. But should something worrisome arise, they’ve got state-of-the-art radiography, ultrasound, and electrocardiography equipment to locate the problem, along with the laboratory expertise to incorporate diagnostic blood and/or urine tests. Might your pet be suffering from allergies? They can help you find out.

Specializing in cats and dogs allows Marbletown Animal Hospital to offer a broad and deep menu of advanced care: cardiology, endocrinology, dermatology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, and urology, along with soft-tissue and orthopedic surgery.
Behavioral care can help pets adjust less-than-desirable traits like housebreaking issues, anxiety, or aggression. State-of-the-art veterinary laser therapy is offered to help speed healing and ease pain.
I’ve seen the practice keep expanding, adding new patients and more advanced care, and you won’t find a more intelligent, compassionate place to bring a cat or dog anywhere on earth.
“We treat on average 1,100 patients a month, the vast majority for preventive and wellness care. We spend enough time with each pet family to make sure all of your questions get answered,” says Laurie.
“We do a lot of community outreach, trying to be a force for veterinary health in the wider community we work with the Ulster County SPCA, the High Falls Pet Show, Paws For A Cause, Mutt Strut in Kingston, Rondout Valley Little League, and many local school events. We host interns from SUNY Ulster to shadow us and learn; we’ve helped raise funds for their vet tech program.”
The goal is to see your pet when they’re healthy and catch any problems that come up before they get too serious.
In case of an after-hours emergency, they’ve got an affiliated all-night clinic at your disposal. If a pet’s having babies, they offer labor and delivery care. And when the day comes that you must part ways, they offer hospice and other end-of-life services with their trademark respect and compassion. “I’ve known I wanted to work with animals since I was in my teens,” says Laurie, “and this is just a wonderful place to do it. I’ve seen the practice keep expanding, adding new patients and more advanced care, and you won’t find a more intelligent, compassionate place to bring a cat or dog anywhere on earth.”
