About GVS

We’re a community-centric veterinary specialty hospital!

Working toward the common good and building relationships are at the core of our community-centric practice. This includes supporting primary care veterinarians for the benefit of our patients by sharing resources, ideas and knowledge–and by giving back to our pet-owning community.

Equipped with the latest diagnostic and treatment technologies, our hospital offers comprehensive services in many veterinary disciplines, including:

  • 24-hour Emergency and Critical Care
  • Internal Medicine
  • Surgery
  • Neurology and Neurosurgery
  • Oncology
  • Cardiology
  • Ophthalmology
  • Rehabilitation
  • Behavior Services
  • Diagnostic Imaging

With our clients at the center of our focus, our goal is to ensure a positive hospital experience and great customer service.

To ensure we meet all our patients’ needs under one roof, our beautiful, fully renovated two-level building includes:

  • Three surgery suites
  • 14 examination rooms
  • Large intensive care unit
  • Isolation ward
  • Complete in-house diagnostic laboratory

In addition, we’ve included dedicated separate areas for:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Endoscopy
  • MRI
  • CT Scan
  • Fluoroscopy

We also feature a large Rehabilitation Center with a custom-designed, full-size therapy pool to help pets recover from illness and injury, return to full function, and enjoy a more active life.

As a further demonstration of our community-centric mission, we are proud to offer registered non-profit animal shelters and animal rescue groups a generous discount on our medical and surgical services. This unique program has helped dozens of compassionate organizations save the lives of even more homeless pets.

About our comfort room

Sometimes pet owners must make a difficult decision to end a pet’s suffering. As pet owners ourselves we know how sad this experience can be. Thanks to the thoughtfulness and generosity of a benefactor and good friend, we’ve dedicated a very special space for our clients to say goodbye to their beloved pets. Our completely private comfort room is beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated. It’s a serene setting for spending some peaceful last moments together. We’ve even provided a lovely memory book for pet owners to record their sentiments.
