Bay Shore Animal Hospital began its life as a local town animal shelter around the 1920's. The
facility was then purchased by a veterinarian, Dr. Fake, around 1935 who
opened the first animal hospital in Bayshore at that time. After passing
hands to Dr. Sherman, the practice continued to flourish. Around 1968,
Dr. Shapiro, who graduated first in his veterinary class at Cornell, brought
the medicine and surgery to another level. The current, owner, Dr. Steven
Dratch, began working with Dr. Shapiro in 1982 until he took over complete
ownership in 1995. Under his guidance, the practice has grown even more

Dr. Terrel, Dr. Bingham, and his newest member, his son, Dr. Joshua Dratch,

combined efforts of this team, their expectations are to continue to elevate

Bay Shore Animal Hospital's Philosophy
It is the philosophy of
Bay Shore Animal Hospital to give back to the community and therefore, enjoys working with many of
the animal leagues on Long Island. The staff understands that although
many people love their pets, they may not share the same economic conditions.
Keeping that in mind, the doctors at
Bay Shore Animal Hospital do everything they can to avoid compromising the quality of care in those
situations. The priority has been, and will always continue to be, about
the pet's quality of life and his or her importance to the family.
