South Russell Veterinary Hospital is moving after nearly 20 years in this location! We are moving to 11423 Kinsman Road, Newbury, Ohio 44065. The new location is just a few minutes from the current hospital, and is centrally located in Geauga County to serve the wider area. The new facility is over two times the size, and will be completely brand new -- with new equipment and better facilities for our clients and their furry companions. We will be moving to the new location around December 4, 2017, and we are very excited! Visit the new hospital website,, for more details and updates on the construction progress.

Schedule your dog or cat's dental cleaning / X-rays in February and receive 10% off!

Good oral health is more than just a pretty smile. Poor dental hygiene can put both your pet’s health and your pocket book at risk. “Dog breath” – or a cat with a foul-smelling mouth – can be a sign of untreated dental conditions. If left untreated, you may put your pet at risk for greater problems such as periodontitis or heart disease.

Routine cleanings can help prevent periodontal disease and save money in the long run. A 2014 analysis conducted by Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. showed that the average cost per pet to prevent dental disease is just one-third of the average cost of treating dental disease.

More importantly, a complete oral examination can detect hidden health problems. Even if your pet’s breath smells fine, there still could be dental conditions that are hard to spot without a complete veterinary exam.

Schedule your pet’s dental checkup with us now. We’ll do a thorough checkup to make sure your pet is at optimum health. We also can show you how to brush your pet’s teeth in between exams. Brushing is the single most effective thing you can do to keep your pet’s teeth healthy between dental cleanings.

We’re committed to your pet’s health and wellness, and we know that you are as well. Book your appointment today!

SRVH Now Offering Digital Dental X-Rays

Submitted by Dr. Lori Bieber

South Russell Veterinary Hospital is now offering digital dental X-rays to assist the doctors in diagnosing dental health issues. Digital x-rays provide an unsurpassed level of detail that can spot trouble earlier than traditional film x-rays. Dental x-rays enable the doctors to see what is going on below the surface of the gums, where serious problems can reside. Cracked teeth and oral decay can be very detrimental to your pet's overall health. What is true about humans is also true about pets - dental health impacts the entire body, including the heart. February is National Pet Dental Health month, so mark your calendars. SRVH will be giving a special discount on teeth cleaning and dental X-rays and other related procedures.
