Ilana Yablonovich, VMD

Dr. Ilana Yablonovich grew up just over the George Washington Bridge in Englewood, New Jersey. She received her undergraduate degree from Barnard College, and then spent four years in Philadelphia while earning her veterinary degree at the University of Pennsylvania. After graduating, Dr. Yablonovich continued her education by completing a one-year rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Veterinary Emergency and Referral Group in Brooklyn. She then spent two years in general practice in New Jersey before returning to Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where she currently resides with her husband, son, and dog named Carlos.


Dr. Yablonovich is eager to serve the pets of Manhattan with special interests in emergency medicine, internal medicine, and soft tissue surgery. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, exploring the city and its diverse cuisine, and spending time with her family.
