To our valued clients, 

Since opening in 2013, Ocean View Veterinary Hospital has been providing general and 24/7 emergency care for your beloved pets. We have also maintained our founding principle of fair pricing, no matter the time care is required. 

In 2020, the veterinary world changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Supply chain issues, staff burnout, decreased efficiency in day-to-day operations, inflation and the overall stress of continuing operations as essential personnel has affected our industry forever. Throughout the past two years, Ocean View Veterinary Hospital continued operating, no matter what challenges we faced. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, OVVH finds itself needing to make a temporary change that will allow us to continue providing the expected quality care. 

Beginning March 1st, we will no longer be accepting emergency patients after 10 p.m.  We will have an overnight nursing staff on-site to care for hospitalized patients, along with doctors on-call to provide support to the nursing staff.  Should you experience an emergency after 10 p.m., we ask that you call the hospital for guidance. If that emergency is life-threatening, please call Garden State Veterinary Specialists at 732-922-0011 directly.  

We will also be updating our website and social media platforms with information regarding this transition. 

Should you have any questions regarding this message, please feel free to email

Thank you for your continued support. 

The staff of Ocean View Veterinary Hospital
