Each year Sugar Hill Animal Hospital hosts senior veterinary students during the externship portion of their education. These future doctors shadow our veterinarians to gain clinical experience in medicine and surgery.
We are a Teaching Site Clinic for the Gwinnett Veterinary Technician Program and often have students perform their clinical rotations with us. They are mentored by our licensed technicians (RVT’s) and assistants as they gain technical skills and experience.
We love reaching out to the children in our community! We offer tours of our facility for school groups where students can see out staff at work. There is also a question and answer period with a doctor following the tour. Our doctors also frequently visit classrooms for Career Day Programs and speak to all ages of students and children about the profession we love!
Sugar Hill Animal Hospital works closely with different rescue groups to help place abandoned or rescued animals. We provide veterinary care for Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta, Bouvier Rescue, Lab Friends of the South, and other volunteer rescue organizations. Our doctors help get these lucky pets back into the best shape possible and assist them into their new families. When looking for a new pet, please check with these wonderful rescue groups.
This mentoring program, sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America, allows boys and girls to shadow a veterinarian after school. If you know a high school student who is interested in veterinary medicine, please contact our clinic. Also, if you see one of our students in maroon scrubs, you may ask them what they are learning – they’ll be glad to tell you!
Sugar Hill Animal Hospital is a regional site clinic for Fovea Digital Radiography. Our educational seminars teach veterinarians about the new technology of digital x-ray.

Last year, your Sugar Hill Animal Hospital staff was able to find homes for over 75 stray kittens. Also, a number of puppies/dogs were rescued as well. Some of these animals were sick, some healthy. We treated, dewormed, vaccinated, and adopted them to suitable homes. Please call us if you are looking to adopt a new kitten or cat.
