How long have you been in business?

We were originally founded in 1974. In 2004, Drs. Bart and Karyn Forlano took over Glenville Veterinary Clinic.

Are you taking new patients?

If we have the availability, we are happy to take on new patients. Please call our office today.

What kind of services do you offer?

We offer a wide range of veterinary services. Other than diagnostic care and wellness checks, we also provide vaccinations, prescription medications, preventative medicine, and surgical procedures. If your pet is in need of care, we can help.

Do I need an appointment?

Yes, by scheduling an appointment, you can ensure that we are available to help when you need us. We generally recommend making your annual appointment at least four weeks in advance so that you can get the time slot you need.

How often should my pet come in for a wellness check?

In general, we recommend dogs and cats receive a wellness check each year. Kittens, puppies, and geriatric pets may require more frequent wellness checks.

Do you provide emergency services?

If there is an emergency, we will do our best to accommodate your pet’s needs. Because we can’t guarantee space in our schedule, we always recommend that you call before coming. If you have an emergency outside of business hours we recommend contacting a local veterinary emergency clinic.
