About Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital

“The love between our clients and their pets is the basis for all that we do.”

Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital has a long tradition of veterinary excellence. Originally founded in 1926 by Dr. Harry Millar and his son Dr. Joseph Millar, the practice was sold to Dr. Delaney and Dr. Wefer in 1986. The Millar Animal Hospital was renamed Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital to represent the community that has loved and supported the practice since its inception.

A Solid Partnership

Staff and family with dog

Dr. Delaney and Dr. Wefer met in 1984 while practicing together at a veterinary hospital in East Brunswick, New Jersey. Their partnership was established based on a commitment to excellence and a dedication to high-quality care. Above all, the two agreed that the practice should be an environment where veterinarians and staff could grow, learn, and take pride in the care they provided to their patients. A love for people and the bond they have with their pets has always been the foundation on which the practice has grown and thrived.

Award-Winning Hospital

In 2002, Dr. Delaney and Dr. Wefer began plans to expand the hospital to meet the growing needs of clients and staff and to continue the hospital’s history of leadership and innovation. In 2009, a 13,000 square foot addition was opened. The new space included state-of-the-art treatment areas, an intensive care unit, an advanced dental procedure area, five additional exam rooms, and a walk-in pet pharmacy. The facility now features a new entrance and reception area, an expanded grooming space, and a luxury dog and cat hotel with a covered, climate-controlled outdoor exercise area.

The architectural design of the hospital is an updated version of the classic brick Jersey Shore style. The goal was to maintain a friendly, comfortable atmosphere while improving efficiency and customer service. Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital is a proud recipient of the 2010 Veterinary Economics Merit Award for Hospital Design.

Today, our commitment to clients and to veterinary excellence is stronger than ever. With a devoted and enthusiastic staff, we enjoy an outstanding reputation for providing pets and their owners with the very best in compassionate pet health care.
