Our Mission Statement:

The Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital is committed to helping pets and the people who love them by combining the highest quality of medicine, technology,IMG_0014_3.jpg and service provided by our caring staff. This dedication to consistent excellence, throughout each pet's entire life, is demonstrated by our endless pursuit to find new and creative means to diagnose, treat and cure disease, and to begin where medical books end.

Our History:


In 1972 Dr. Dean J. Cerf, Hospital Director, continued the tradition of the Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital, after its original establishment 150 years ago by the Hopper family of Ridgewood. Dr. Cerf has since developed the Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital into one of the most advanced and respected veterinary hospitals in New Jersey. He has grown the hospital into a six doctor practice with two locations and a grooming salon. The skilled support staff has grown from three people to over fifty caring professionals, who complete a rigorous training program consisting of oral, written and practical exams, as well as participation in continuing education programs.
