Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of twice yearly physical examinations. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:

The veterinarians at Sedgefield Animal Hospital rotate observing your pet on a daily basis. Your pet is observed throughout the day by our caring and capable staff.
