About St Johns Veterinary Hospital and Cat Clinic
St. Johns Veterinary Hospital maintains an academic, evidence based medicine tradition through weekly case rounds and staff team interaction. The goal is for each member of the veterinary staff to work together to research, institute and offer the current state of the art medical and surgical care for our patients.
Associate veterinarians are encouraged to seek out areas of interest within the practice. The practice has provided opportunities to pursue advanced techniques in ultrasound, endoscopy, wildlife medicine and acupuncture.
Patient care and client compassion are a priority and measures are taken to assist veterinarians in these areas. Examples would include two surgical nurses to monitor surgical patient care, hospital nurses to monitor inpatients and management level staff to provide support and excellent care to clients.
