Testimonials

  • SGAH is the best place to bring your pet if you are looking for the best veterinary care in Monmouth/Ocean County. As a former employee and client I have seen first hand the courtesy, caring and professionalism of the entire staff from receptionists to management. Dr. Sabia was a life saver when I lost all three of my elderly pets last year. If you are in need of a good vet don't hesitate to call SGAH. They are the best!

  • I have had the good fortune of a being a client of Sea Girt Animal Hospital for the past 14 years. In fact, since we moved back to Jersey City several years ago, we continue to travel back to the shore to have our pets seen by the SGAH staff.  From the receptionists to the doctors the care my pets receive is loving, complete and effective.  I recommend SGAH to anyone who craves the best in care for their pets.
