If your pet is experiencing an emergency, there is No Appointment Needed for Emergency Care. When in need of a Specialist, patients treated at Garden State Veterinary Specialists EATONTOWN must be referred by their veterinarian. The patient will only be treated for the condition for which they were referred; no routine procedures (i.e. vaccinations, prophylactic heartworm testing) are performed on any patients of the hospital.

An itemized estimate is provided on all cases admitted to the hospital. A deposit is required at the time of admission. Payment of the balance is due at the time of release. We accept checks, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. We also offer financing through Care Credit.

Thomas D. Scavelli, DVM, DACVS


As a veterinary student, Dr. Scavelli had a 
vision to create a referral only specialty practice. His plan for the practice was to bring together a group of specialists who would work as a team to provide the highest quality of veterinary medicine to the referred patient. His concept was unique at the time since his philosophy for the hospital was to follow 
a strict “referral only” policy for non-emergency 
patients. In this specialty hospital, patients would have the benefit of consultations with veterinarians from multiple specialties and have available to them state of the art diagnostic equipment. In 1994, while a resident of Staten Island, Dr. Scavelli opened Garden State Veterinary Specialists (GSVS) in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. GSVS grew quickly in response to the growing demand for community based specialty medicine and the need for a hospital which could provide 24/7 veterinary medical care. In 2012, Dr. Scavelli also established a Hospital in Iselin, New Jersey. Garden State Veterinary Services provides Urgent Care and appointments with Specialists to patients in Middlesex County and the surrounding areas. In 2016, Dr. Scavelli opened a 24/7/365 emergency/critical care hospital in Staten Island, New York. Greater Staten Island Veterinary Services has now expanded its services to include appointments with specialists in the fields of Cardiology and Surgery. Patients of our affiliated hospitals benefit from the expertise of our specialists through inter-office collaboration on difficult cases.
