About Collier Animal Hospital

Our Mission:  To provide “Complete, Compassionate Care!”

At Collier Animal Hospital we work with and educate every client to provide complete, compassionate care for each patient.  Education is the key to better compliance and ultimately better care for patients.  We enjoy discussing all aspects of a patient care and we welcome questions.  Our special veterinary interests include internal medicine, oncology, and surgery.

It is Collier Animal Hospital’s desire to provide you with the highest quality veterinary care at a reasonable fee. Professional services, hospitalization, the quantity of drugs and supplies utilized, and the high caliber of our staff forms the basis of our fees. Unlike a human hospital, the facilities and equipment provided are due entirely to the private enterprise of Dr. Ewing and represent a substantial investment in the community.

For these reasons, WE REQUIRE FULL PAYMENT OF ALL FEES AT THE TIME SERVICES ARE RENDERED OR UPON DISCHARGE OF YOUR PET. AN ADVANCE PAYMENT MAY BE REQUIRED UPON ADMISSION TO OUR HOSPITAL.

We gladly provide estimates before services are performed and explain in full the basis of your pet’s care. We accept cash, check and credit cards.

I am a 1990 UGA CVM graduate. I have been working as a DVM in the Atlanta area since 1990. I owned my own practice for 10 years and have been doing relief work since selling that practice. I have 2 children, a 21 year old son and 18 year old daughter. I currently have 5 dogs and two cats and I live in Cumming, GA. I raised, trained and showed quarter horses as a teenager and hope to one day do that again as horses are a passion of mine. I love dogs and cats too and enjoy helping clients take care of their beloved pets.
