APPOINTMENT

We put your pet’s health first.

Scroll down to learn more about how we go above and beyond to provide your pet with exceptional care. If your pet needs any kind of medical care, you can count on the veterinarians and staff at St. Georges Veterinary Hospital. Our hospital is equipped with the most up-to-date veterinary medical technology and we provide complete outpatient and hospital care. Using a combination of our own in-house laboratory, outside laboratories, x-ray machine, ultrasound, and electrocardiograph tests, we have the ability to diagnose almost any medical condition that is affecting your pet’s health.

Wellness Exams
Regular check-ups are the key to keeping your pet healthy and happy. We recommend that pets receive at least one complete annual examination. Routine wellness exams help your veterinarian develop a clear picture of your pet’s overall health. During a wellness exam, your veterinarian listens to your pet’s heart and lungs, evaluates your pet’s vision, checks for unusual lumps or swellings, looks inside the mouth and ears, and evaluates your pet’s joints and muscles. Blood work is usually done during a regular examination. During wellness exams, your veterinarian can spot health problems before they become more serious or difficult to treat. A routine exam also is an excellent time to talk to your veterinarian about behavioral issues, nutritional recommendations and any issues related to your pet’s health.
Microchipping

Each year, millions of pets go missing, and many are never found again. If your pet is lost, you can increase the chances of finding your companion by microchipping your pet. Microchipping is a simple, painless procedure that implants a small microchip—about the size of a grain of rice—under your pet’s skin. Your pet’s information is stored on the microchip and registered in a national database. When a missing pet is found, the microchip is scanned and the information in the database is used to reunite the pet and his or her owner. Our hospital uses the HomeAgain microchip system.

Nutritional Counseling

Pets are at just as much risk as humans when it comes to obesity and related health issues. Obese or overweight pets are at a greater risk for diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and other health problems.

In 2007, Pfizer introduced Slentrol, the first prescription weight-loss medication designed specifically for dogs. Slentrol reduces appetite and fat absorption to encourage weight loss.

At St. Georges Veterinary Hospital, we offer comprehensive nutritional counseling services that help you design and implement a weight-loss program for your pet.

We carry Pet Tabs, an excellent, palatable, vitamin and mineral supplement for dogs and cats as well as a complete line of Hills, Eukanuba and Royal Canin prescription diets.

Radiology

Radiographs are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions. They are useful in diagnosing problems in your pet’s bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity and other areas of the body. Fractured bones, cancerous tumors, heartworm disease, and gastrointestinal obstructions / foreign bodies can be detected with x-rays.

Our hospital has a state-of-the-art x-ray machine that produces excellent quality radiographs (X-rays). When used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures like ultrasound, x-rays can accurately diagnose medical problems, making surgery more gentle for your pet and less complicated for your veterinarian.

Laboratory Testing

Routine blood testing provides information about your pet’s health that cannot be detected during routine physical examinations.

We are equipped with sophisticated instruments that allow us to measure many laboratory values. As a compliment to our regular laboratory services, our in-house diagnostic capabilities allow us to obtain results pre-surgically, or in an emergency, within minutes. Our hospital also provides allergy testing for pets.

Our extensive laboratory services provide information that is critical to the sick or injured pet. We have access both in-house and at our centralized reference laboratory to extensive diagnostic testing. This allows our patients to receive appropriate treatment in a timely manner.

Grooming

A clean pet is a happy pet.

We offer full-service grooming for your dog or cat, including baths and dips. Heather Curtis, a certified technician, and certified groomer will keep your pet looking his or her best. Every breed of dog and cat is different, therefore the grooming for each pet is unique. Grooming is available to our all clients and Heather knows exactly how to groom each breed…from AKC-standard to your own personal style.

Appointments are required for grooming sessions. Please call the hospital for an appointment, information and prices.

Vaccinations
An up-to-date vaccination strategy is fundamental for protecting your pet from disease and illness. Our veterinarians tailor vaccine protocols specific to each pet. For cats, we recommend boosters with Felocell (by Pfizer) to protect against distemper and respiratory viruses. We recommend yearly vaccinations for dogs using Pfizer’s Vanguard Plus (5-in-one vaccine). This single injection protects our canine friends from distemper, parvovirus, coronavirus, parainfluenza, and adenovirus. In some cases, boosters for Lyme disease, Bordetella (Bronchicine by Pfizer), and Feline Leukemia (Leukocell 2 by Pfizer) are also given annually. Rabies vaccination (Defensor by Pfizer) is given the first year then boostered every three years. For dogs, we recommend a yearly heartworm test.
Surgery

Our hospital is equipped to perform most minor and major surgical procedures, including spay/neuter operations, biopsies and other soft-tissue surgeries. Before a surgical procedure, each patient receives a thorough physical examination to identify any existing medical conditions that might endanger the pet’s health. A pre-anesthetic blood and urine test is also conducted, which allows our doctors to tailor an anesthetic regime specific to your pet.

Pain management is an important part of our pre-, intra– and post-operative anesthetic and medical protocols. All surgical patients, including those undergoing routine procedures such as spay or neuter procedures, receive Rimadyl for controlling pain. Developed by Pfizer, Rimadyl has been proven clinically effective for pain relief in dogs. We urge you to discuss operative pain management options with our staff.

Ophthalmology and Dermatology

St. Georges Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer clients and their pets dermatology and ophthalmology examinations. Two of our veterinarians, Dr. Friedman and Dr. Voigt, are highly-trained in dermatology and ophthalmology, respectively.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound is similar to an x-ray but provides real-time evaluation of your pet’s internal organs. With access to board-certified radiology specialists, we can provide an extremely high level of advanced imaging services on-site. This gives you piece of mind knowing that your pet is being evaluated by medical experts in the field. An ultrasound can locate a foreign body in the intestine without costly and time-consuming x-rays, leading to earlier intervention and surgical removal. An ultrasound examination is less invasive, less stressful and more comfortable for your pet.

Chemotherapy

The word ‘cancer’ strikes fear in all of us; however, with new advances in veterinary medicine, many pets are living longer with a greatly improved quality of life. Successful cancer treatment often lies in early detection. Early detection can be difficult at times, as cancer may not only present itself as a lump on the skin but may arise inside the body. If this occurs, a veterinary examination can often reveal the tumor. If left undiagnosed, the disease may not be noticed until clinical symptoms develop.

Treatment depends on the type and location of cancer. If possible, surgical removal of the tumor is recommended. Some types of cancer are responsive to chemotherapy, which include a variety of oral and injectable drugs. Dogs and cats tend to tolerate chemotherapy well and do not often develop side effects similar to humans.
