Care, Comfort, and Compassion for Your Pet

About Adana

Adana Veterinary Clinic

Adana Veterinary Clinic is a small clinic, emphasizing high quality medicine and very personalized care. Our staff is committed to an excellent experience for both the owner and the pet.

We provide wellness care as well as care for sick animals. We examine and treat mostly dogs and cats, but also take care of many other small furry pets: ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits, rats etc. At Adana we know that having great medical and diagnostic equipment allow us to serve our patients better.

Digital X-ray, advanced in-house lab machines, and digital dental X-ray gives the doctor the ability to do a wide range of diagnostic work. The clinic offers most surgeries: many soft tissue and abdominal procedures, including routine spay and neuter, C-sections, mass removals, eye lid corrections as well as some orthopedic surgery. We use a Class IV Therapeutic Laser post-op and for many acutely painful conditions.

With Dr. Wildenstein's lifelong interest in dentistry the clinic also offers prophylactic and therapeutic dental care including extractions.

Our philosophy is reflected in our mission statement, and in our motto: Care, Comfort, and Compassion for your pet. We take pride in great customer care and emphasize comfort for pet as well as owner.

Cat Friendly Practice


Spring is in full swing....ticks are ready for their meals on 4-legs.

Every year we long for this time of year with all the tender green showing up outside and the days getting longer. Spring allows owners and their pets to spend more time outdoors. With the warmer weather ticks will be emerging from their winter hiding spots, ready for a blood meal and able to transmit Lyme disease.

Ticks are capable of transferring many different diseases to dogs; in our area Lyme disease is definitely the most important. Cats, however, seem to have a natural resistance to Lyme disease. Deer ticks are the carrier and transmitter of the bacteria (Borrelia) that may cause Lyme disease. White Tail Deer and the White footed Mouse are both primary hosts for deer ticks and are abundant in our counties.

Deer ticks are quite small and may not be discovered by the owner until they are filled with blood from their meal, which takes up to 2 to 4 days. Dogs do not always become sick from Lyme disease, or they may become sick at a later date. Common signs include fever, decreased appetite and lameness. An acute syndrome with kidney failure has also been associated with Lyme.

Since 2012 Tompkins County has had the unfortunate record as being the county in the state with the highest rate of Lyme infected ticks! We highly recommend year round tick control for your dog and diligent checking of all humans after walks and hikes outside.

Please consider having your dog vaccinated against Lyme disease: A safe vaccine is available for dogs to effectively protect them.

Clients of Adana can learn more about deer ticks and Lyme disease through our pet portal, ePetHealth.

Most people are surprised when they learn that ticks do not mind the cooler weather: they are active from early spring through fall, and start feeding as soon as the snow is melting.

Please talk to us at Adana about the best choice for your pet – there are many options for prevention available. We have specials on some of the safest and most effective control methods.

I just want to say how much I appreciate Patch’s care yesterday (after ingesting packing peanuts) and am so very happy that I found you at Adana.  The level of care, concern, and professionalism from each and every one of you is better than I have ever found!  Thank you all so much!

Happy That I Found You

Joanne Cipolla-Dennis, April 2017

Everyone at the office is absolutely worth every dime. Your services and care are always above and beyond and I am still happy with my choice to bring Manny to Adana.

Worth Every Dime

Lyon, February 1, 2017

Dr. Wildenstein and all the staff at Adana are simply the best. They provide high quality and compassionate care that really came to the forefront when our 15 year old dog had a terminal health crisis. One of the most meaningful events was being able to say goodbye to our beloved companion in the comfort room — a room dedicated to allowing dogs and their humans to say goodbye to each other in a serene and peaceful way. Thank you Adana Veterinary — you made a genuinely positive difference in this very difficult process!

Quality, Compassionate Care

Thank you Melissa and all at Adana. We were pleased with the visit and I was so very proud of Doodle– she was so good for her exam – not at all the Doodle I expected!!! She must have gotten good ‘vibes’!!!!

Good ‘Vibes’

Marge H., October 23, 2015

We’re so lucky we found Adana. Kobe was our first puppy and Adana made everything so easy. Kobe loves going to the vet (mostly because of the cheese wiz). Dr. D gave us so much information to help to train and raise Kobe and the other staff was always so warm and welcoming. Thank you so much Adana!!!

Warm and Welcoming

Carynn, Justin & Kobe, September 26, 2015

I just want to say how grateful I am: After one visit to Adana, our cats have always been very happy to get into their carriers. We have not seen them behave like this before with any other vet. We know it is because they feel respected and well treated at Adana, and they trust all the staff. We know they get kind, loving attention when we board them and it gives us great peace of mind. Thank you for your attentive service!

Loving Attention When We Board Them

Thank you for fitting Ellie in so quickly to your busy practice. Thank you for your friendly and warm welcoming. I am so very grateful for the wonderful care you have provided for Ellie and me.

Wonderful Care

Lisa Schwartz, July 13, 2015

I’ve driven by since 2004 and finally chose Adana as my vet. I am very pleased with the friendliness and professionalism they provide.

Friendliness and Professionalism

Patty McNally Codner, October 09, 2013

We can not say enough good things about Dr. Wildenstein and the staff at Adana! We wouldn’t go anywhere else with our 6 year old yellow lab. And the greatest testimonial of all is that our dog LOVES to go there. He drags us from the car to get inside and then it is difficult to keep him calmed down until he can get in the exam room. He loves Dr. Wildenstein and everyone there. We appreciate all they have done for our family.

Our Dog Loves to Go There

The reason you are so good Dr. Wildenstein is not just your skills, the place and the staff; but the fact that you really care about the people, the owners.

You Really Care

Joyce P., March 08, 2013

(John) “We originally chose you because the clinic is close.” (Jill) “Then we found out that you are just awesome too!”

Close and Awesome

John and Jill Wanagel, November 16, 2012

The staff at Adana are pleasant, well trained, and compassionate toward both their clients and the owners. I have had at least 2 emergencies with my dogs and the staff responded by seeing my dogs the same day and staying after hours to treat them. Dr. Wildenstein is kind and wonderful with my dogs. I would recommend Adana to anyone looking for a veterinarian and those who are not happy with their current vet. They know my dogs and I don’t have to give their medical histories at each visit.

They Know My Dogs

KFries, July 09, 2012

The staff was very professional and caring. They were extremely helpful in picking out heartworm prevention and flea treatment. The Dr. and staff knew both my dog’s and my name by our second visit and made sure to note his nickname (Gerry). I have a lot of respect for their philosophy and ethics (no docking/cropping, etc…). Both Gerry and I are very much looking forward to our next visit!

Respect for Their Philosophy and Ethics

Brian_Stewart, September 22, 2011

Adana provides wonderful care for my 8 cats. The entire staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the care is exceptional. We have gone to Adana since they opened and had surgery, dental cleanings, monitoring of early stage kidney failure, and support to help one cat lose over six pounds. Dr. Wildenstein is wonderful and has a beautiful well run practice. Being a cat person, I love that the cats have a separate waiting room!

Care Is Exceptional

The staff is the best. All are very caring. When my dog had surgery. The office called the next day to see how my dog was doing.

Staff is the Best

dossit, September 26, 2010

Dr. Wildenstein is an excellent vet. She is gentle and caring, (you can tell by the way she handles her patients). Dr. Wildenstein has excellent diagnostic skills and has proved to be a great surgeon. All of the staff give loving care. The icing on the cake? The place is spotless and has the latest in technology.

Icing on the Cake
