At the SJAH, when it comes to your pet's health, we believe the best solution is prevention.
That’s why we work as a team with the pet owners to educate them about disease prevention, parasite control and the benefits of physical activity.
Here to Provide Your Beloved Pet with the Best Care
Our veterinary care team is comprised of 2 veterinarians, 4 registered veterinary technicians, skilled and caring kennel attendants and efficient and compassionate receptionists and management staff.
