Need a vet on the west-side of Manhattan

I need a veterinarian in Manhattan (Washington Heights, UWS or Inwood preferred). Please come inside if you have a good one.

A few thoughts:

*This is for a chihuahua and a grey tabby cat. We moved from Queens and want someplace closer to home. Easy access from A/C or 1/2/3 trains very important.
*I would prefer one that is not outrageously expensive for routine visits, shots, etc., though I'm not willing to sacrifice quality care, of course.
*One that does boarding for small dogs and cats would be nice.

I took a cat once to 'Washington Heights Animal Hospital' on Amsterdam Av at 180th Street and it was good.

E had a good cat place when he lived up there. I'll ask him when he gets home

We have been very happy with Animal General on Columbus at 87th.

We used to have the same issue and while the Washington Heights Animal Hospital is serviceable, we weren't comfortable takingour cats there for anything other than a check-up. We had a good experience with Symphony Vet on Amsterdam and 96th. (It was also easy to taxi the animals there and back since it was a straight shot down/up Broadway and Amsterdam.)

I really like the West Village branch of Biscuits & Bath, and feel okay assuming that the quality of service is the same at the UWS branch as well.

We had a good cat vet at 108th and Broadway. West Side Animal Hospital, I think. They also take care of dogs, but I don't have a dog. Close to the 1/2/3.

It was nothing like "West Side Animal Hospital" - it was "Riverside Animal Hospital".

When I lived in Inwood I would take my cats to Broadway Animal Hospital in Riverdale, which was just off the 1 train. I didn't find the prices unreasonable compared to other NYC vets and they were very friendly and good with my cats.

I don't know Manhattan geography well, but a good friend of mine works at Gotham Veterinary Center (at Columbus and West 95th St.) and is superlatively smart and conscientious.

Seconding Riverside Animal Hospital / Riverside Veterinary Group. Jane Kasovsky is known to be an excellent surgeon. I think they would be worth looking in to.
