GUILFORD VETERINARY HOSPITAL has always prided itself on providing our patients with the most current medicine and advanced technology to ensure accurate and timely diagnoses. Our eight doctors, who have studied at seven different veterinary schools, have a combined total of over a hundred and fifty years of experience. Our doctors and technicians participate in scheduled hospital rounds daily. During rounds each of the hospitalized patients and other complex cases are discussed in detail, allowing each patient to have multiple doctors involved in its care.
Our doctors are assisted by a caring support staff, including a team of highly skilled certified veterinary technicians (CVTs). In order to provide the best personalized health care for each pet, we offer digital x-ray technology, ultrasonography, endoscopy, digital dental x-ray, acupuncture and laser therapy. We feel that an investment in technology is an investment in your pet’s health. We have a comprehensive in-house laboratory and utilize two outside laboratories on a daily basis. This provides us with a turnaround time of less than 24 hours on most diagnostic tests.
Surgery and anesthesia are always treated with the utmost respect in our practice. Our surgical suite rivals that of many human hospitals. Our anesthetized patients are closely monitored using continuous ECG, blood pressure and respiratory monitors as well as pulse oximetry. Anesthesia protocols are individualized for each patient to ensure the utmost safety.
The cornerstone of our practice is preventative health care. Our patients benefit from collaboration between their owners and our professional team. We work hard to educate our clients in all aspects of health care including vaccine protocols, pediatric care, dental health, behavior problems and individual geriatric care.
To ensure that we maintain the highest quality of veterinary care, we have voluntarily adopted the guidelines of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). We are committed to maintaining these high standards and undergo regular assessments and inspections to earn our AAHA certification. We believe that we owe this to our patients and our clients.
