There’s a new vet in the neighborhood spreading healing love to Brooklyn pets. One Love Animal Hospital made its debut in October and is on its way to becoming a trusted name in pet health. I first came across One Love during the Atlantic Antic and soon after started hearing good things about the practice from neighbors in my building. One Love was started by husband and wife vet team, Dr. Kenneth Humphreys and Dr. Eliza Lischin. Together with Dr. Susan Ryan, they have 25 years of combined experience in veterinary medicine.
Dr. Eliza has a special interest in feline medicine. She has worked in small animal medicine in Brooklyn and on her family’s thoroughbred racehorse farm in upstate New York. She is graduate of Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed a clinical rotation year at Washington State University School of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Ken brings his background in ER medicine and dentistry to One Love. Prior to co-founding the practice, he was an emergency clinician at VERG in Brooklyn. He received his veterinary training from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine located in St. Kitts in the West Indies.
We recently toured the new space in Boreum Hill and received a warm greeting upon arrival from Rachel Eve. The clinic is welcoming and filled with artwork including a giant rooster sculpture. As we explored the hospital, Ken and Eliza shared One Love’s goal to create a stress free experience for pets and people. The doctors want to be a part of the community for a long time and emphasized the importance of rewarding people for taking care of their pets.
Dr. Ken and Dr. Eliza took pride in showing us their treatment rooms and state of the art dentistry suite. They explained how their digital radiology machines give off less radiation to pets compared to traditional equipment. Their treatment rooms even feature pheromone aromatherapy to take the edge off our furry friends.
Make sure you say hello to Willy who resides in the One Love waiting room. He was found on the street and brought into the hospital on opening day.
The office knows you’re busy and tries to keep waiting to a minimum. Appointments are scheduled in half hour increments and they close at 7pm on weekdays. Future plans include going paperless through an online database in which people can access pet medical records.
