Preventive Care Is the Foundation for Good Health Graphic Accent

Gulford-Jamestown Veterinary Hospital

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We believe the best way to ensure a long and healthy life for your pet is to bring him or her to the veterinarian for an annual checkup. We are dedicated to giving all of our pet patients a thorough “nose-to-tail” exam at every checkup, along with plenty of time for questions and answers so that you leave feeling confident that your pet is well cared for.

Your pet’s checkup will also include a thorough examination of teeth and gums to make sure there is no dental disease. We may also perform comprehensive blood work to ensure there are no internal medical problems.

  • Puppy and kitten wellness —Congratulations on your new pet! Be sure to schedule an appointment right way to get your new furry friend off to a healthy start.
  • Adult dog and cat care—Your pet’s good health starts with an annual checkup, including an examination of his or her teeth and gums as well as updating necessary vaccinations.
  • Senior pet care—Typically at seven years of age we consider most pets to be a senior and recommend twice yearly visits to our hospital. More frequent visits will help catch medical problems early, before they become more serious.
  • Flea and tick prevention —Itching, scratching, and hair loss are all signs of flea and tick problems. We can help with proven, topical treatments that will keep your pet comfortable.

When you leave our hospital, we want you to have all of your questions answered. You will always leave your appointment with us with additional information to review at home, either in the form of a “report card” on the health of your pet and/or reading material that further illuminates how best to care for your pet at home.

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.

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!
