I’ve been bringing my cats here for 15 years and Dr. Derfuss and the staff have been caring and compassionate. Holistic treatments are available if you want them, depending on the animal’s condition, and I have gone this route a couple of times for ailing cats. I never felt pressured into accepting any particular treatment. I’ve always been given all the options and chose what I felt was best. There are a number of vets closer to where I live, but I continue to make a slightly longer drive to Branchburg Animal Hospital because I trust them.

My husband and I have been taking our German Shepherds to Dr. Derfuss for many years. She is extremely caring and compassionate. She not only practices traditional medicine but holistic too. Our "girls" actually loved when they went to the vet! We highly recommend Branchburg Animal Hospital!

Great Vet... great staff... This group is like no other Vet I've been to. I tried 5 different Vets in the New Brunswick area... Branchburg is on a totally different leve. 5 Stars

For the past five years, the veterinarians at Branchburg Animal Hospital have taken great care of Stitch. I highly recommend this vet for your cat or dog.

Linda and I have been bringing our Labrador Retrievers (first Shiloh and now Cooper) to Dr. Derfuss and the Branchburg Animal Hospital for many years. We have always admired and embraced the leading edge, holistic healing practices that are employed there. This has included such applications as acupuncture, chiropractic and the utilization of natural supplements, all of which have appreciably augmented the overall quality of life for our beloved canines. At a time and in a country where the overuse of prescription medication has clearly run amok, it is great to have a facility in our area where numerous other alternatives are deployed and RX medication is applied on a far more discerning basis.

Vincent Van Goh, (my "Little Man") made it back home after being missing for over a month!  He has already made himself at home, napping on the bed all day!  My other cat, Jezebel, happily shares the bed with him.  Thank you to Branchburg Animal Hospital and one of their wonderful customers for helping me find Vincent.


I would like to thank Branchburg Animal Hospital for all they are doing for my dogs. First there was Duffy. He was an older guy whose mind was willing but his body was weak. We started acupuncture last spring to help him with his arthritis andother geriatric issues: mostly incontinence. Even though the acupuncture did not help that issue, we continued because we saw a major difference in his quality of life. Two months before he died of lymphoma, no on could believe he was going to be 11 in January. At a rally show, they teased me that I had the wrong dog in veterans. Also, Dr. Derfuss was so kind to us when we had to let him cross the Rainbow Bridge.

Now we are putting Tucker's care into Dr. Derfuss' capable hands. He came to me as a 4 year old with confirmation issues. He is now 8 years old and last spring we realized he was not holding his chiropractic adjustments. In the rally ring, our scores were either very high or very low. He was just not consistent. On bad days I had to repeat sits because he just did not want to do them, and when he did, they were all crooked. Everyone said he was lazy but I knew better. This dog has a great work ethic. Dr. Derfuss diagnosed him with spondylosis and started acupuncture. Not only is he greeting me with the animation and energy of a goffy young dog, we went to a rally match and he was spot on and happy! We are retiring him to veterans and just going to play there for the rest of his career. Oh, he is even starting to wrestle with his 18 month old sister.

Sincerely,

Cathie Sayre


When my wife and I first brought home our cockapoo, Gracie, nearly eight years ago, we accepted a friend's advice to have Branchburg Animal Hospitalhandle our dog's health care needs. That choice was -- and, is - a great decision.

As would be the case with any member of the family, the well-being of our dog is tremendously important to us. That's why we're always so grateful for the way we've been able to depend on Dr. Karin Derfussand her wonderful stafffor both their skill and compassion in treating Gracie over the years. From routine checkups to emergency treatment, we're always confident that we can trust Branchburg Animal Hospitalto care for our dog and to keep her healthy.

Most importantly, when we've been in urgent need of help for a problem involving our pet's health, Dr. Derfuss and her team have been there for us. Whether it involves a question that can be answered by phone, or, an issue that requires a visit to the office, Branchburg Animal Hospital gets us the answers we need.

I highly recommend Branchburg Animal Hospital as a place you can trust to provide excellence and kindness in caring for the health of your pet.

Regards,

Stuart Naar
