"Georgesville Road Animal Hospital is a 5 Star Animal Hospital. They saved my dog's life and knew exactly what to do when he ate something poisonous. After I saw his stomach swelling, I panicked and took him straight over there. They took amazing care of him and depended on them for his life. I would recommend them to anyone - if you want the best care, take them to the best!"Susan Y, 02.17.10
"They are very thorough, very professional, courteous and personable. They are very good at communicating, taking time to explain all the options and the costs and benefits of procedures. I've already recommended them to people in the area."Nancy B, 02.12.10
