Noah's Ark Veterinary Practice

We are Noah’s Ark Veterinary Practice, where your pets are more than just animals. They are our comrades. Our partners. Our best friends and companions. They are the symbol of what unconditional love truly means. At Noah’s Ark Veterinary Practice, we are pet parents first. We focus on strengthening the relationship between pets and  family, doing whatever we can to help you both enjoy as many years together as possible. For the past 16 years, we have been committed to providing the highest quality veterinary medicine to the people and pets of Brooklyn. Our concentration has always been, and will always be, on treating each patient that we serve with personal attention and compassionate care that is customized to suit their particular needs.

  • Dr. Brian Abraham

    Veterinarian
    Dr. Abraham has over 30 years of experience as a veterinarian. He worked in the metro area for other vets before fulfilling his dream of opening his own animal care clinic in 2002. Starting with just one technician, the practice has since grown to include three doctors and over 15 full-time and part-time staff members.

    Dr. Abraham remembers writing an essay back in fourth grade about wanting to become a vet. As a child, his pets included a guinea pig, a parakeet, frogs, turtles, hamsters, fish, rabbits and eventually a mini-schnauzer.

    After graduating Brooklyn College with a degree in biology, he set off for veterinary school in Parma, Italy. Between studies, Dr. Abraham found time to travel and do some skiing in the Dolomites. After presenting a thesis on retinal diseases, he graduated and returned home with his two Italian cats, Sylvester and Squeaky.

    Dr. Abraham and his wife, Elise, currently have three adopted dogs: Archie, Louie and Billy. Their daughter Sarah is a veterinary technician specializing in anesthesia and dentistry.  Their son Jared is a "sous" chef at a fine restaurant in NJ where he is sharpening his culinary skills.
