Testimonials

  • I moved to Manasquan 14 years ago and was reluctant to change veterinarians for my dog. When the trip back to Toms River to our veterinarian became too much, I decided to give SGAH a try and so, for 14 years, they have cared for my dog(s) and cat with compassion and expertise. The veterinarians are extremely competent and knowledgeable. I have the utmost confidence in their veterinarians, vet techs and their staff. Maybe I am prejudiced because they have also been so incredibly giving to a local animal rescue group that I fostered puppies for. I am truly "at home" when I walk into the office with my own pet or one that I am fostering (and I have certainly walked through those doors enough that this is like a second home to me). Thanks Sea Girt Animal Hospital for your unwavering commitment to animals and their owners. Thanks for being so warm and kind.

Testimonials

  • The Sea Girt Animal Hospital has been a long time supporter of the Jersey Shore Animal Center and our mission to rescue and care for unwanted, abused, sick and abandoned animals.  For many years, Dr. Marilyn Weber, Dr. Marisa Sabia, and the staff provided several free spay/neuter procedures per month for our shelter animals in need, including domestic rabbits that had been surrendered to the JSAC. Starting with the front desk staff, you are welcomed in a professional manner and the medical care rendered is second to none. With the retirement of our friend Dr. Weber, the shelter lost a superb colleague and friend; however we were thrilled to find out that the new doctor’s, Dr. Velazquez and Dr. Yurkus, are still supportive of our shelter. Thanks to their caring compassion we will be using Sea Girt Animal Hospital for several procedures per month.
