Specialty & Referral Hospitals

There are certain situations that require pet’s to be seen by a board certified specialty veterinarian. We are extremely lucky to have a close working relationship with Boston Veterinary Specialists (BVS). Boston Veterinary Specialists is one of Boston’s most established private specialty practices, providing specialized veterinary surgery for over 25 years. We are not a university or teaching hospital, and do not train residents to perform surgery on our patients. We work closely with referring veterinarians and pet owners to provide specialty care in a timely manner, with compassion and exceptional service.
