Article: Best To Leave Wildlife Alone (Newsday, June 1, 2012)

June is the peak season in our area for "birth of young wildlife including rabbits, birds and whitetailed deer." Many people who come upon wildlife assume it to be helpless and in need of assistance, but that's rarely the case. The recommendation is to keep your distance and leave the creature alone.

According to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, "It's generally not a good idea to touch or help young animals found in the wild. 'Helping' may cause more harm than good as wild animal parents often shy away from their young when people are near."

  • "We've been with TVVH for over 25 years. Could not imagine going elsewhere. In addition to their professional expertise is the consistent human element; their very real kindness and caring. Office staff, technicians and doctors all are exceptional."

  • "I recently moved to the area and adopted a rescue, so both of us were strangers. Dr. DeVerna was highly recommended by a dear friend who used the group. We were seen by Dr. Jeri-Ann DiPaola, a warm, knowledgeable professional--very accessible--I had tons of questions, all answered. The entire atmosphere was very friendly and clearly a place where pets and their owners can be comfortable. The office staff and assistants were terrific and made us feel very welcome. Thanks to all."

  • "The staff and doctors are amazing. The older my Shih Tzu gets the more difficult and snappy he has become. Your doctors and staff are kind, gentle, and professional. You don't make me feel like I have a bad dog or I raised him wrong. I feel you care not just for me dog but for me (who can be a bit neurotic about my dog). Your tech staff and doctors...even the front desk staff are the best!!"

  • "I not only use Three Village Veterinary for my personal animals, but frequently recommend them to my grooming customers as well. I trust them explicitly and value their professionalism, but above all their compassion... all the doctors there are great & the fact that they put up with my MANY emergencies (& my neurosis) makes them my fav. Love you guys <3"
