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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 TruFel Ultra (by Elanco) to protect against distemper and respiratory viruses. We recommend yearly vaccinations for dogs using Elanco’s TruCan DAPPi (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 (TruCan B by Elanco), and Feline Leukemia (TruFel Ultra FeLV by Elanco) are also given annually. Rabies vaccination (Imrab3 by Boehringer Ingelheim ) is given the first year and then boostered every three years. For dogs, we recommend a yearly heartworm test.
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-,
Ophthalmology and Dermatology
St. Georges Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer clients and their pets dermatology and ophthalmology examinations. Our veterinarian, Dr. Friedman, is highly trained in dermatology and ophthalmology, respectively.
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.
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.
