★★★★★ Always very happy with the service my dog receives. When my dog was sick, one visit, I could not bring her my 19-year-old son did. The doctor actually took the time to call me at my job to go over her findings. She said she could run test however, she did not think it was necessary. She felt that the dog would be fine in 24 hours with some oral antibiotics. And some probiotic.. sure enough she was right. Never a long wait. Staff is wonderful and caring.. my dog has seen a couple of the doctors there and I love them all. I’ve been to other facilities before finding Sea Girt when I moved here and I felt like my pet was a number not a name or should I say $ sign!! I’m very thankful to have found Sea Girt Hospital I will continue to use them I highly recommend them five star serviceCherylCheryl ★★★★★ Great vets! Great staff! Very caring about our 19 year old doggie.bill D.bill D. ★★★★★ Always a great experience. Everyone is very friendly and helpful!Patty W.Patty W. ★★★★★ We’ve taken ‘our kids’ to Sea Girt Animal hospital for years. The team is knowledgeable, they luv luv luv their four legged customers and I have found it seamless in scheduling appointments. 🐾🐾Jim & Nancy E.Jim & Nancy E. ★★★★★ They are absolutely amazing. I bring my two, well now one guinea pig(s) there. I truly don't want to go any where else. Does anyone know if they are closed for good?I am so happy to hear that!!! I wouldn't take Gimli anywhere else. ❤️Melissa A.Melissa A. ★★★★★ Very helpful with my lab. Keeping the old boy comfortable. Thank you Dr. Sabia. 😊Lori K.Lori K. ★★★★★ Every single person that we came in contact with (the receptionist, vet, vet assistant, literally everyone) was incredible. They were all so empathetic and excited to see our pet. They made my girlfriend and I at ease immediately. We came In with an elderly rat, he has cancer and his prognosis isn’t good, we have about a month or two left with him. This was extremely difficult to hear but the vet and vet tech made it easier to bear. The vet didn’t sugarcoat things but was still kind and empathetic. When she gave us our options it never felt like she was trying to ‘sell’ us something, I’ve had that experience with other vets and it’s awful. Here I never felt pressured only informed and cared about. They made this difficult time much easier and gave us medication to keep Vincent comfortable and information on how to help him during this hospice period. They told us to call them in case of an emergency and gave us the information of another vet who can help if an emergency happens while they’re closed. I really feel that all the bases have been covered and now we can relax and just give Vincent all of the love and treats and comfort he deserves.

Love you allAlicia Williams (.Alicia Williams (. ★★★★★ Sea Girt Animal hospital is a revelation! Specifically, I brought my cat to see Dr. Ackerman. Recently, all the doctors I've dealt with have been kind of robotic and rushed. In this time of COVID-19, humanity seems to have been eliminated. That's why Sea Girt Animal hospital, and specifically Dr. Ackerman, have restored my faith in office visits! Dr. Ackerman took his time with my cat, giving a full exam. He then took his time explaining things to me in a human, thoughtful manner. Simply put, this guy is a GREAT DOCTOR!!!GaryGary ★★★★★ I was so afraid when my 8yr old dog suddenly had a medical issue. I called Sea Girt Animal hospital to see if they can see my dog .They were so accommodating and within an hour i was at the hospital. My dog was evaluated and tests run. The veterinarian, tech and staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I was so happy when i left. I would definitely recommend this practice to everyone...Maureen P we the stars disability advocacy G.Maureen P we the stars disability advocacy G. ★★★★★ I called this morning at 9 am because my older dog had a bad skin infection and was seen by 9:30. The staff was wonderful and Dr Friedman took her time explaining what was to be done and took great care of my dog who was a mess with skin wounds and in terrible pain when trying to touch him. They shaved all affected areas, cleaned up the wounds, and applied ointment, gave him shot of antibiotics ,and complete instructions on aftercare once we got home. He is so much more comfortable now. Thank you for taking Scrappy right in and providing excellent care.Tara S.Tara S. ★★★★★ Great staff to work with. I had an appointment with them at 3pm to bring my cat in since she has not been acting the same. Due to the traffic on Friday I was late for my appointment.

COVID prevents humans from going in with the animals but that is expected during this trying time. The doctor was in contact with us by phone in our car waiting in the parking lot. They did the best they could do under the circumstances. We are very satisfied. We felt we could call with concerns without a problem. Nice staff.Walt Z.Walt Z. ★★★★★ These guys and gals are awesome. Over a busy Memorial Day weekend they fit me and my cat Lucky in for a nail trim because I had gotten tired of the Estimated Blood Loss from my arms every time I had tried it. Lol. The techs were awesome as a team, kept Lucky calm and restrained and did a thorough trim quickly and painlessly for her. Unfortunately Lucky had puked in her carrier on the way over, and I was going to clean the carrier while they did the nail trim but the techs insisted they do it themselves. They even wiped Lucky off because she had been sitting in her own puke. They were very friendly to me and my sons, and the price was awesome for the service. I will DEFINITELY be back. It helps that they are right down the street too. Thanks guys!I want to update this a few years later (2020): I have used SGAH for all my cats needs since 2017. Dr. Sabia and *ALL* the SGAH staff - every single one of them - deserve recognition for keeping their busy practice functional during COVID! Our cat unfortunately had a stroke and had to be euthanized...we were devastated but SGAH did *everything* in their power to make the experience as least painful as possible. Their compassion is evident in every thing they do, even when they answer the phone. Great veterinary practice- one I will use in the future! -JLliebermanji45liebermanji45 ★★★★★ The Best!
