Hope Veterinary Clinic provides comprehensive, client centered treatment to enhance the health and well being of animals and to promote the human-animal bond. We believe in a holistic approach to veterinary medicine using complementary medicine. By this we mean that we address the entirety of the pet’s emotional, physical and environmental needs. We also believe in providing support and education for owners in order that they can care effectively for their pets from the beginning to the end of the pet’s life. Our practice of using complementary medicine means that we utilize both western and eastern treatments according to a patient’s specific needs. Wherever possible, we try to use natural products and supplements to treat conditions (especially chronic conditions), but will also prescribe standard medicines if this is the most appropriate treatment.

Juliet Sternberg, LMSW

Veterinarian, Practice Director
Juliet Sternberg was born and raised in London, England. As a teenager she fell in love with dairy cows and initially pursued a career in dairy farming before factory farming methods became intolerable to her. She came to the U.S. in 1989 and to New York in 1993. She obtained her MSW degree from Fordham University in 2002. Prior to launching Hope Veterinary Clinic, Juliet had 10 years of experience in mental health and geriatric case management and counseling. Working with clients who had pets persuaded her of the positive impact that companion animals have on the needs and well being of humans, and of the paucity of veterinary services in social work, and social work services in veterinary medicine. Juliet is the founder and co-chair of the New York City group Social Workers Advancing the Human Animal Bond. Juliet lives with 7 cats, one dog, 2 turtles, a whole bunch of pond fish and some noisy frogs. In her leisure time she enjoys cycling, baking, and passionately follows the fortunes of Liverpool F.C. and the Yankees.

Dr. Kristine Young, DVM

Veterinarian, Medical Director
At age 3 Dr. Young decided to be a doctor, but was sidetracked into a successful design career, before eventually returning to her first love, animals. After graduating from Michigan State University, Dr. Young happily returned to her hometown of New York City to practice veterinary medicine. While working as an associate in Brooklyn, Dr. Young began making pro-bono house calls to some of Juliet’s clients which ultimately led to the formation of Hope Vet. Dr. Young is a member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association. The cats, dog, turtles and fish who share her home are a major joy and influence for her practice. When not at Hope Vet, she enjoys gardening, bicycling and house restoration. Her beliefs in animal ethics and welfare led to her becoming a vegan.
