At the heart of New Jersey’s pet care landscape lies a haven for animal wellness that’s far from ordinary. Dr. Buchoff’s visionary approach to veterinary medicine has paved the way for a holistic haven where pets thrive emotionally, physically, and energetically. With over four decades of experience, Dr. Buchoff’s practice, nestled in a sprawling 15,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility, sets new standards for integrative pet care.

A Lifelong Dream Realized

For Dr. Buchoff, this practice is more than just a career; it’s a lifelong dream that continues to evolve and grow. “My tail wags on the way to work,” he quips with genuine enthusiasm. Ever since his early fascination with animals, he’s been committed to their welfare. This passion led him to embark on a journey that spans continents and disciplines, ultimately shaping his distinctive approach to veterinary care.

The Path to Integrative Excellence

With a team of four dedicated doctors, Dr. Buchoff’s practice is NJ’s largest and most advanced integrative vet center. The facility’s expansive open treatment center features eight stations and eleven exam rooms, emphasizing collaboration and comprehensive care. Their offerings span the spectrum of holistic treatments, including acupuncture, reiki, electromagnetic therapy, stem cell therapy, and more.

One unique aspect of the practice is its aviary specialization, showcasing Dr. Buchoff’s commitment to treating all pets, including exotics, with the utmost expertise. This specialization extends to acupuncture and reiki treatments tailored specifically for pets. They even have a BEMER room, utilizing electromagnetic technology to boost the immune system.

Nurturing Health from the Inside Out

Dr. Buchoff’s practice is more than just a clinic; it’s a holistic wellness hub. They emphasize nutrition as a foundation for wellness, promoting a raw food diet formulated by Dr. Buchoff himself. This complete, balanced diet supports pets’ health improvements and overall longevity. They offer this specially formulated food both within the clinic and through various local stores.

Beyond Medicine: A Message for Pet Owners

Dr. Buchoff’s commitment to pet wellness extends beyond treatment rooms. He is an advocate for balanced pet care, advocating against over-vaccination. Instead, he encourages pet owners to consider rabies titers as an alternative. His message is clear: treat your pets with care and respect, just as you would any family member.

A Community Connection

Beyond offering top-tier care, Dr. Buchoff’s practice integrates with the community through various initiatives. They work with rescues, even hosting live adoption events on-site. Dr. Buchoff’s contribution to the community goes beyond medicine; it embodies a holistic approach that reflects his core values.

Looking Ahead

Dr. Buchoff’s vision for the future is one of expansion, driven by the desire to provide comprehensive care for all animals. Plans include a sports and rehab center, boarding facilities, and even hyperbaric oxygen chambers. He envisions a space where animals can receive not just treatment but holistic care that encompasses every aspect of their well-being.

In a world where pets are cherished members of the family, Dr. Buchoff’s practice shines as a beacon of hope and healing. With a fervent commitment to holistic wellness and a pioneering spirit, he has revolutionized veterinary care, showing that nurturing animals’ emotional and physical health is the key to a vibrant and fulfilling life.

Tick Talk

Spring officially sprung on March 21. We have turned our clocks ahead. We are looking forward to warm winds, sunny skies and the smell of fresh cut grass. The daffodils and tulips have recently bloomed and we are just starting with the yard work that comes with the warmer weather.  Sadly, another season has started ramping up.  Tick season.

•             The best form of protection is prevention. Educating oneself about tick activity and how our behaviors overlap with tick habitats is the first step.

•             According to the NJ DOH, in 2022 Hunterdon County led the state with a Lyme disease incidence rate of 426 cases per 100,000 people. The fact is ticks spend approximately 90% of their lives not on a host but aggressively searching for one, molting to their next stage or over-wintering. This is why a tick remediation program should be implemented on school grounds where NJ DOH deems high risk for tick exposure and subsequent attachment to human hosts.

•             Governor Murphy has signed a bill that mandates tick education in NJ public schools. See this for the details.  Tick education must now be incorporated into K-12 school curriculum. See link:

•             May is a great month to remind the public that tick activity is in full swing. In New Jersey, there are many tickborne diseases that affect residents, including Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, Powassan, and Spotted Fever Group Rickettsiosis.

•             For years, the focus has mainly been about protecting ourselves from Lyme disease. But other tick-borne diseases are on the rise in Central Jersey. An increase of incidence of Babesia and Anaplasma are sidelining people too. These two pathogens are scary because they effect our blood cells. Babesia affects the red blood cells and Anaplasma effects the white blood cells.

•             Ticks can be infected with more than one pathogen. When you contract Lyme it is possible to contract more than just that one disease. This is called a co-infection. It is super important to pay attention to your symptoms. See link.
