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.
