About Us

Animal Hospital of Clinton was founded in the1950's as a large and small animal practice. In 1984, Dr. Niebojeski purchased the now strictly small animal practice. At that time it was in the ground floor of a house in Clinton. In 1988, we moved to our current location just 1 mile west of the original site. The practice was purchased by Dr. Ross in 2011.

Dr. Ross and his staff feel that it is their responsibility to tell each client all that is available for their pet, with both preventive care and when they are ill. They then try to spend the time to discuss all options with each client and help them to decide what is best for them and their pet.

Our professional affiliations include AVMA, NJVMA, and VHMA

    Dr. Ross knew he wanted to be a veterinarian since 5 years of age, when he used to talk to his Old English Sheepdog Winston. Many years and Sheepdogs later, he earned his Bachelors degree in biology at Virginia Tech and his doctorate of veterinary medicine at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. He returned to New Jersey and worked at several exceptional veterinary hospitals where he honed both his medical and surgical skills.

He feels so fortunate to spend his days working with clients who love their pets and caring for animals; the most wonderful patients a doctor could ask for! He is so excited to have joined the team at the Animal Hospital of Clinton-Perryville and subsequently to have adopted BB and Sidney!

  • Dr. Felecia Niebojeski, DVM

    Dr Felecia Niebojeski says Good-Bye     

    Dr. Niebojeski  owned the Animal Hospital of Clinton-Perryville from 1984 to 2011. She established it in its current location and was proud to own and run the hospital for many years. In 2010 she decided it was time to hand over the running of the business to a younger generation! She met Dr. Ross and knew  immediately  he was the one – a great doctor, and an enthusiastic businessman! Her intention was to give up business ownership but continue to work for Dr Ross as a part-time doctor. But life had other plans! Dr Niebojeski’s husband came home from work in May 2011 with the news that his company had been purchased and they were transferring him to Raleigh,NC.  So she retired and moved to Cary, North Carolina in November 2011. She misses the staff and all her old clients very much but she assures us she is really enjoying retirement.

     “I would like to thank all of my clients who trusted me to care for their four-legged friends over the years. I also appreciate the friendship and caring that I received back from so many of you. I hope you will enjoy working with Dr Ross and develop the same trust and caring with him that we shared.  Again, I miss you all and thank you.“

    BB came to us in 1998. He was brought to us by the Hunterdon County SPCA  to treat his chronic eye condition. He needed surgery to correct some malformed eyelids, and while he was here recovering, he wormed his way into the hearts of several of our staff members, and moved in permanently.  He could often be seen patrolling the reception area and visiting the clients or receptionists.

  • Sydney

    Sidney was just a kitten when she was brought to us in October of 2005 by the Hunterdon Humane Society. She had been hit by a car and had a fractured pelvis. Her injuries required a lengthy period of confinement. She stayed with us throughout her recovery. She recovered from her injuries, but does have some slight mobility problems. We all became attached to Sidney and since she is a "special needs kitty", we decided that she should stay and become one of our resident "hospital cats".

    Sidney is a little shy and prefers to stay upstairs lounging in her bed. She has adapted quite nicely to her new life of indoor leisure!
