Veterinary Services For Dogs


A Comprehensive Approach to Canine Veterinary Medicine

We understand that a veterinarian is only as good as his or her ability to successfully prevent, diagnose, and treat whatever ailment a pet may be facing. Equally as important is our ability to listen and communicate well with owners to make sure they understand their dog's health concerns and how to make the best choices for them. This is why our hospitals are capable of handling any procedure, including preventive care, medical diagnosis, and emergency surgery.

Emergency Dog Care

If your dog experiences an illness, injury, or other emergency situation, call your SCVG hospital immediately. Our hospitals are equipped to handle most dog health emergencies during our regular business hours. 

If possible, please call the hospital prior to bringing in your dog, so that we may assess the situation, prepare for your arrival, and offer immediate care instructions, if appropriate. In some cases, we may refer you to an alternate 24-hour emergency care facility.
