About Us

Get to know us!
Progressive Veterinary Care began more than 30 years ago as a small, one-doctor practice. It created a strong reputation for providing high-level medicine to the pets of central New Jersey. Dr. Michael Tokiwa took over ownership in the fall of 2005. His goals were simple. Keep the aspects that made the hospital great, but his drive has been to change the veterinary landscape, and part of that involved the creation of an environment conducive to a better life for the individuals that provide the best medicine to your pets.

By remaining true to our roots, and employing the advances in the veterinary medical field, we have grown into two multi-doctor facilities. In addition, we changed our name to simply, The Animal Hospital at Kingston and Blawenburg. It better reflects who we are and what we do. Simply put: a Small Hospital providing Big Medicine.

*We are one multi-doctor facility moved to the Blawenburg site, and we changed our name simply to the Animal Hospital. We have always strived to be a Small Hospital providing Big Medicine, but have remained Progressive throughout.

Small Hospital. Big Medicine.

It’s what we live by, and how we can better serve the pets and people of the Greater Princeton Area. We provide compassionate care during every single visit for you and your family. Our team members pride themselves on customer service, and they are dedicated to providing your pets with the highest quality health care.
Small Hospital. We don’t carry the same big footprint of the corporate veterinary hospitals, and we are proud of that. We are small enough that we can provide a family-like environment, and not get caught up in the bureaucratic red tape of larger facilities. We can spend more time helping guide you through a better wellness plan or medical treatment plan for your pet. Our team approach leads to better service and medicine by promoting a client-interactive approach toward pet wellness and client education. We can move quickly and provide our valued patients, and the people who love them, a more personalized one-on-one service. We want to get to know you and your pet and create a lasting relationship.

Big Medicine. We are a full-service veterinary hospital. We can provide everything larger facilities can (and sometimes more): from in-house blood analysis to ultrasound; from spays, neuters, and dental procedures, to tumor removal, radiology, and behavior counseling. In addition, we have very strong ties to the local 24-hour referral centers and work with specialists in making sure those pets in need get the expert care at the highest levels.
