Dr. Murdock has worked in the veterinary field for fifteen years but has been in the St. George area for five years. As the area has grown she saw the need for a new type of veterinary practice. The veterinary clinics in Southern Utah are overrun and have long wait times sometimes expanding weeks. Emergencies in the past have had to wait hours until the local emergency center opened. The dream for Lava Rock Veterinary Hospital grew from this problem.
Lava Rock Veterinary Hospital is St. George Utah's first veterinary urgent care. Our urgent care facility is filling the need of a clinic being open with overlapping hours to the regular veterinary clinics around. Your pets no longer have to wait weeks with an ear infection or several hours after a toxic ingestion to be seen. We are proud to offer this service to the people and pets of Southern Utah and other surrounding areas.
We are proud to be St. George’s first women owned and operated veterinary practice.
