About Us

Georgetown Veterinary Hospital LogoDrs. Daniel and Virginia Flynn established the Georgetown Veterinary Hospital shortly after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine back in 1959.   It has remained a family owned and operated practice since then… more than 50 years! We realize that people make the practice. Our dedicated staff is composed of compassionate animal health professionals, the majority of whom have been Georgetown Veterinary Hospital team members for decades.

Our vaccination program includes an annual physical examination in order to provide the best available protection for your pet. As medical care becomes increasingly preventive, a yearly check-up helps ensure early detection and treatment of potential problems before they become serious threats.

In the unfortunate case that your pet is experiencing a problem, our doctors will provide thorough analysis through a complete physical exam and other diagnostic testing. Our in –house laboratory and radiographic capabilities allow us to provide prompt and proper treatment.

Additional diagnostic services include ultrasound and electrocardiogram (EKG). When necessary, university and veterinary laboratories provide specialized diagnostics.

Our surgery suite and large treatment and recovery area enable our doctors to provide the utmost in quality and care for a variety of routine and elective procedures. Each patient is closely monitored during and after surgery and when necessary is placed in an intensive care area.

Imaging

GVH is proud to offer digital radiology and ultrasonography for patients requiring imaging services. Both are noninvasive diagnostics that aid in recognizing a variety of conditions.

Digital radiology:
Digital radiology may represent the greatest technological advance in medical imaging over the last decade. It allows for almost immediate viewing of images and allows for rapid sharing of images if a consultation proves necessary. Radiographs, or x-rays, allow our veterinarians to see detailed images of your pets’ bones and even some of their intra-abdominal organs.

Ultrasound:
Ultrasound assists veterinarians in many ways. Pregnancies in dogs and cats can be confirmed and monitored through ultrasound, as can abnormalities in the liver, kidneys and other organs. Ultrasound is useful in determining heart and lung health and in monitoring cardiopulmonary disease as well.

Labwork

GVH is pleased to be able to offer a full service laboratory to our clientele. We are able to analyze most samples (blood, urine, feces) in-house and can often provide test results shortly after samples are obtained. We occasionally rely on off-site licensed laboratories for tests that our outside our capabilities.

Cardiology is the branch of medicine dealing with the heart and its diseases. As is true for humans, heart health is a major factor in the longevity and quality of our pets’ lives. The veterinarians at GVH have many resources available to them to diagnose and treat heart conditions in dogs and cats.

A few of the diagnostic procedures we use to evaluate cardiac function are:

  • Electrocardiogram
  • Echocardiogram
  • Radiology
  • Pulse oximetry

Opthamology

It’s been said that the eyes are the window to the soul. Whether or not that’s true, we know they’re very important to your pet’s quality of life. Eye care is a priority at GVH and we have many resources available to us to care for your pets ‘eyes. Not only are we prepared to treat injuries and infections of the eyes, but we’ll monitor your pets’ eyes for age related changes at every wellness visit.
