Welcome to Little Friends Veterinary Services! We are your local, small town, family owned and operated veterinary hospital in beautiful Lyons Falls, NY. We wish to thank all of our clients and visitors for their patience during the pandemic – this has allowed us to continue caring for pets and families in a safe, comforting environment. Current CDC and NYS guidelines are allowing us to permit entry into our facility for persons who have completed their full course of COVID vaccinations, with the option to wear a mask. For those who have not been vaccinated, we will continue to provide care for your pets with curbside service, and we ask that you wear a mask if you enter our hospital. Please understand that we will continue to admit patients with curbside communication for everyone – this means that we will call you or come out to speak with you about your pet when you arrive. Be patient – we are almost there! We can’t wait until we can see everyone’s smiling face again!
We are open for all appointments including wellness visits, immunizations, illness and emergencies, puppy and kitten visits and feline surgical services including our community spay and neuter program and feline dentistry. Our appointments are filling quickly, so be sure to call ahead and please be patient as we are still very limited in staff. Be sure to leave a message if we are busy with another patient and we will do our very best to call you back as soon as we can.
At Little Friends, you will always have the same doctor and friendly, caring staff for your pets. For your pet's visit, you will receive a FULL HALF-HOUR with the doctor, not just 15 or 20 minutes! We strive to provide a safe and calm environment with a focus on what is best for your pets and family. We have the safest and most effective parasite preventatives, free home delivery of Purina diets with Royal Canin diets available at our office and the most accurate, up to date information regarding your pet’s health and welfare. Call us today!
Dr. Liane Underwood and the Little Friends Family
I’m a local girl, having spent much of my childhood tromping about in the woods around Old Forge at my Grandparent’s camp. My husband, Pat, is a local boy from Rome. We live on the Moose River here in Lyons Falls in a little cabin we built next to the river – our favorite place! We are experienced whitewater kayakers and paddle the Moose regularly. We love the Northcountry, and enjoy gardening, hiking, snowshoeing, fishing and hunting as well as paddling.
I graduated from veterinary school in 1996 and have lots of experience over the years to make Little Friends the very best choice to care for your pet. I’m experienced in preventative care, internal medicine, behavior medicine, surgery and emergency care for both dogs and cats. I have a special interest in feline medical, surgical, behavioral and dental issues with advanced training in these topics. At Little Friends, we also care for “exotic” pets such as reptiles, small mammals and birds.
