We provide wellness care as well as care for sick animals. We examine, treat and perform surgery in all the furry companion animals: dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, chinchillas, guinea pigs and small rodents. At Adana we know that having great medical and diagnostic skills along with the right equipment allow us to serve our patients better.
Digital X-ray, ultrasound, advanced in-house lab machines, and digital dental X-ray give the doctors 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 oral surgeries. We carry the latest technology in Class IV Therapeutic Lasers, a CTX-15 unit used post-op and for many acutely painful conditions, please refer to our Laser section.
Dr. Wildenstein has a lifelong interest in dentistry for pets and Adana 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.
Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease (RHD) is a deadly disease, caused by a virus, that can infect rabbits and affects the liver and blood vessels. As of March 2022 the virus has been reported once in NYS, but has killed thousands of domestic and wild rabbits in many western states. The Florida Dep. of Agriculture reported on February 28, 2022 that the affected states currently include Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming. The virus can remain in the environment for up to 3.5 months and is capable of surviving both freezing and very hot temperatures. The current strain, RHDV-2, may be a concern for rabbit owners because it is easily spread through direct contact with an infected rabbit, their feces, or other bodily fluids, as well as through contaminated items such as bedding and clothes. If you ever take your rabbit outside in a pen or if you pick greens or dandelions outside, you rabbit is at risk. See below for vaccination options at Adana.
RHD kills quickly, giving little warning. Rabbits often die without showing any symptoms. Any sudden death, especially in an otherwise healthy rabbit, is suspicious and should be reported to your veterinarian as a possible case of RHD.
Treatment is limited to supportive and palliative care. There are no antiviral drugs available at this time. For prevention of the disease, a vaccine is now approved for emergency use as research continues.
The vaccine is administered by injection in a 2-dose regimen, with the second (booster) dose following 21-28 days after the initial dose. Duration of vaccine efficacy is still to be determined but is expected to be 1 year.
At Adana we follow the development and spread of this disease very closely. As one of the only rabbit veterinarians in our counties, Adana carries the RHDV-2 vaccine, it is offered for pet or show rabbits. Please call the office for scheduling details, preference will be given to established clients and their rabbits due to vaccine availability.
At Adana we continue to review our health safety policy as needed. The Tompkins County Department of Health posted an update April 27, 2022 for a mask advisory in all public indoor settings, and has encouraged business to require masks again. Effective immediately we require face coverings be worn by all visitors, inside our building at all times.
Clients are restricted to the waiting area as we continue to take precautionary measures to protect our precious staff and doctors from any close contact. We do not have the extra capacity to treat patients should we be down even one staff member.
Dr. Alice Marie Donnelly joined the staff of Adana Veterinary Clinic late June 2021, Adana and Dr. Wildenstein are very excited to have another experienced, competent doctor to help serve our amazing patients and clients. We love having her as part of our small team! She graduated from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996 and has practiced in Central New York for 25 years. She is a knowledgeable, and compassionate veterinarian, who truly enjoys the art of practicing veterinary medicine. Dr. Alice Donnelly has an easy-going personality, that helps put clients at ease. She takes pride in high quality, honest, practical medicine and enjoys forming long term bonds with her clients.
Dr. Donnelly is a proficient soft tissue surgeon; she also enjoys dentistry including extractions in our canine and feline patients. She has maintained an extensive portfolio of continuing education seminars and is well versed in managing various chronic medical diseases such as endocrine disorders, heart disease, kidney issues and much more.

We have had a few vets over the 13 years we’ve been in this area, BUT you, Dr. Wildenstein, and your entire team is amazing and what makes Adana the BEST vet place ever! Your kindness and listening skills are second to none.
Second to None

We’ve taken five different pets to Adana over the course of 12 years and everytime they get the highest level of care. They’ve seen us through a kitten to end of life support for our beloved first dog, always keeping it professional yet personal. We wouldn’t trust our four legged family members to anyone else!
Professional Yet Personal
Gina Marie, August 2020
Adana deserves the highest compliments! You takes such good care of Cody and Tootsie. What a great staff! Thanks again for the immediate and excellent care of Cody today!

We boarded our cat at Adana over the Christmas holiday. She is older and has some health concerns, so my husband and I are always nervous when boarding her at a new place. They took great care of her. When we picked her up today, we were given a detailed report of her eating habits and general behavior. We took home a very happy cat! The staff is professional, helpful, and kind. We will definitely board her again with Adana!
Cat boarding: We took home a very happy cat!
Update on Loki- the laser treatments worked so well! Before treatment there were days his back legs were so sore and weak he could barely get off of his bed- we saw a change for the better during his first cycle of treatments, and after 3 cycles he had definitely improved a lot! A year later he is running and jumping better than ever!
Jumping better than ever!

We LOVE our family at Adana and wouldn’t have care given to our pets, our “family”, any other way!

Thank you all for making such a positive impact in our beloved pets’ lives. We truly appreciate your compassionate and caring team! And Joey, Tula and Cosmo are lucky to have a great vet like Dr. Wildenstein!
Such a positive impact!
Owner of Joey, Tula, and Cosmo, August 2017
I have had several pets in my life and have used many different vets. From the first time I brought my dog to Dr. Wildenstein, I knew she was THE one to have! She has a wonderful way of handling pets and of communicating information. She and the whole staff are fabulous, and I wish I could wrap them all up and take them with me when I go to Florida in the winter!

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

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
Laura Donaldson, January 2016
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’!!!!
Marge H., October 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 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
