Cats are housed in a separate room from dogs, and patients with special medical needs may be boarded in our treatment area for close veterinarian and support staff supervision.

All pets staying with us are required to be current on their vaccinations. If your pet is not up to date on his or her vaccinations, we will be happy to take care of that with a scheduled checkup.

For your convenience, we are now offering Weekend pick-ups! 

If you plan to pick up Saturday or Sunday, please let us know as this must be pre-arranged and prepaid. 

We recommend making a reservation well in advance when at all possible since our boarding facility does fill up, especially around holidays. Contact us at (336) 852-0200.  Please note that we do require 24 hours’ notice of cancellation.

For over 20 years, we have been clients at Guilford Jamestown Veterinary Hospital. While a lot of things have changed in 20 years, one thing has remained the same. Dr. Karen Kennedy and her unparalleled team of doctors continue to provide stellar service to our family of pets. We cannot thank them enough for all the love and care they have shown our family over the years.
The Payne Family

Everyone at the practice from the veterinarians to the technicians to the front office staff know you and your pet by name even before you check in. It’s a little like being Norm on Cheers.

We’ve been bringing our pets to GJVH since 1989 for top notch veterinary care. Now that we live across town, it’s not as convenient, but the quality care and helpful staff keep us coming back.

I sometimes think my dogs get better medical care at GJVH than I do at my doctor’s office. From the courteous front desk staff to the friendly technicians to the terrific veterinary care – I know my dogs get better medical care than I do!
