The front of Basic Pet Care Animal Hospital as seen from Route 109 in Lindenhurst, New York.       Basic Pet Care began in Farmingdale on Rte 110. It has been under the ownership of D. Peter Lugten for 25 years.  2014 marks the 10th anniversary of our move to Lindenhurst.  Dr. Lugten was able to purchase the old Chase Bank, and convert it into a custom designed Animal Hospital.  Every year we continue to upgrade and modernize the facility.

The Operating Room is like an inner sanctum, the one place where no one gets to disturb the doctor!

Our facility has been accredited by the New York State Veterinary Medical Society, and we keep it up to date with new technology, and we keep it clean and odor free. At times, it is even relatively quiet!
