East Village Vet Dr. Schaubhut Moves to Downtown Veterinary Clinic

Posted on: December 2nd, 2011 at 10:18 am by

When the East Village Veterinarian closed its doors at 241 Eldridge Street earlier this week after decades in business, it caused something of a scare among pet-owners both in the neighborhood and around the city. “Patients” seemed upset at the lack of info on where Dr. Schaubhut was headed.

Luckily, his wife reached out to us yesterday to clear the air on what’s what:

Beginning next Thursday [December 8] he’ll be seeing patients at Downtown Veterinary Clinic, 244 9th Avenue at 25th street, on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays with evening hours on a day yet to be determined.  The phone number there is 212-463-8705.  We’ve not been able to get the phone to give out updated info but the old number should have a new message by tomorrow some time.  Sorry to have scared everyone.  All is not lost.  I was a client for 27 yrs before I became the wife so I know how important he is to so many people and critters!
