Welcome to Deer Park Animal Hospital. Since Dr. John Savell, our Hampton and Newport News veterinarian, took over the veterinary clinic in 2003, it has developed into one of the best-equipped clinics in the region.
We provide preventative medical services, as well as surgeries for dogs, cats, and rabbits from Newport News, Hampton and the surrounding Peninsula area.
At our veterinary hospital, our highly skilled team is always ready to help you and your pet. Veterinarian Dr. John Savell is a graduate of Louisiana State University. He practiced in Lake Charles for six years and in Hampton for another five before taking over Deer Park Animal Hospital in Newport News.
He is a member of AVMA and the Veterinary Laser Surgical Society and is certified in Class IV Laser Therapy. Class IV Laser Therapy is one of the most effective medical procedures offered at our veterinary hospital and has a range of uses from healing wounds to reducing the pain of arthritis.
Dr. John Savell's wife, Veterinary technician Karen Savell, is a graduate of Northwestern State University and brings over twenty years of experience to our veterinary clinic. Karen is highly experienced in anesthesia, in-house laboratory testing, radiology, surgery assistance and pet dentistry. She and Dr. John Savell enjoy spending time with their two daughters, Shelbey and Katelyn. Their motto is, "We are a family helping families" which is evident in our everyday veterinary care.
Deer Park Animal Hospital is one of the best equipped hospitals in Newport News and the surrounding peninsula! We have Digital Radiography, Accuvet C02 Laser for surgeries, Laser Therapy with a K-Laser unit, in-house lab equipment for bloodwork, EKG and ultrasound equipment.
It would be hard to find another hospital in the area with all these on site. We have everything to serve you without having to refer you to neighboring clinics/specialists for further treatments. However, we do work in tandem with specialists in the surrounding area with especially difficult cases.
Our facility and highly trained staff are capable of serving the surrounding Peninsula area with preventative medical services as well as high quality surgeries and dentistry preventative care.
Appointments are preferred so clients don't have to wait and our clients spend good quality time with the doctor and staff without feeling rushed or stressed. Of course, emergency situations always come first.
We would love to give you a personal tour of our facilities! We always welcome new clients and love getting visits from our clients and their pets who just want to look around the clinic and visit.
Please feel free to browse around our site and see what our Veterinary Hospital has to offer!
At Deer Park Animal Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
At our animal clinic, we offer a comprehensive selection of services, ranging from vaccinations, pet dentistry services, to internal medicine diagnostics, dermatology and laser surgery. In order to offer the highest quality services to our patients and help them in-house at our veterinary clinic as much as possible, we have invested in state-of-the-art diagnostic and medical equipment.
We are equipped to provide Digital Radiography, Accuvet CO2 Laser for laser surgery and Class IV Laser Therapy with a K-Laser Unit, as well as an in-house laboratory for bloodwork, EKG, and ultrasounds. This means that at our veterinary hospital, our veterinarian has everything to help you on-site and only has to refer you to specialists in rare cases.
Our veterinarian understands how important it is for owners and pets to be in a quiet, unhurried environment for appointments. That is why we prefer to see patients by appointment so nobody has to sit in a full waiting room at our animal hospital. Naturally, if an emergency case arrives at our animal hospital, we prioritize the emergency.
Our receptionist, Marie Lockwood, always welcomes you with a smile! Our animal clinic's Office Manager and receptionist, Carolyn Green, holds a degree in Early Childhood Education and worked with young children before she joined us to work with "furry kids."
If you are from the Newport News or Hampton area and you are looking for high quality and advanced medical services for your pet, call us today for an appointment at 757-595-9720.
