Georgia Veterinary Specialists began as a private specialty referral practice in 1995 with the same goal you have: to provide the best care possible for pets, ensuring optimal outcomes to facilitate a longer and healthier life. By offering a full complement of multi-disciplinary specialists and diagnostics, GVS can expand the scope of your practice.
In so doing, we have expanded our services, technology, and staff over the years to reflect the advances in veterinary medicine. Recently, GVS opened a satellite facility in Gwinnett and is seeing specialty referrals by appointment Monday through Friday from 8 am to 6 pm.
