The word “paumanok” is a Native American word for Long Island and means “island in the shape of a fish.” Our roots are from Long Island. We want to be part of the community, and our involvement with our community is diverse and wide, from helping young people to become more aware of careers in the veterinary medicine field to raising awareness of environmental issues. We sponsor several fundraisers over the course of the year.
We’re a small hospital that's big on giving
Since opening for business in 1992, husband and wife veterinarian team—Dr’s Dee and David Hensen have been proactively involved in raising funds for various causes—and to date, they are very proud to state that the Paumanok Veterinary Hospital, P.C. has raised over $68,000. Dr's Dee and Dave believe in passing on the good fortune that they have received, and so community service in many forms is an integral part of the Paumanok Veterinary Hospital, P.C. philosophy.
Our Open House on March 22 Has Been Postponed
Dear Paumanok Veterinary Hospital clients, friends and family,
It is with great disappointment but a sense of patriotic purpose that we have decided to postpone our Annual Paumanok Veterinary Hospital Open House, scheduled for March 22. Every year for 28 years we have planned an open house to showcase veterinary medicine, our staff and hospital. This event affords the animal loving community an opportunity to learn and see the art and science of veterinary medicine in a fun manner. It takes many months of enthusiastic planning to put this event together. However, this year we are impacted by something out of our control, the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
In the interest of keeping our staff, friends, clients and our extended American family safe we have made this postponement decision. We will re-schedule when we see what develops of the Coronavirus pandemic situation. Thank you for your support and understanding. Please be safe, well, healthy and kind to everyone you meet.
Best, The Doctors and staff Paumanok Veterinary Hospital, P.C
