Patients and Visitors

What is it that makes VCA South Shore Animal Hospital the place to bring your pet? It is our passion to provide the highest quality of care for your pet and the highest quality of service for you.

At VCA South Shore Animal Hospital, we are a neighborhood pet care clinic that has served our community for years and also enjoy the benefits of belonging to a strong nationwide animal doctor network. We offer wellness care and specialty medicine all under one roof. Our staff works as a team so you don’t just get one pet doctor; you get a team of veterinarians and technicians who are all devoted to advising you on the best course of treatment for your pet. Furthermore, our doctors have access to over 200 board-certified veterinary specialists in addition to the 15 we have on staff. That’s important, because if we want or need a different perspective on a problem or condition that a pet may have, we call on our colleagues, many of whom are recognized as experts in their specialty. We also have our own Medical Advisory Board that keeps us up-to date on the very latest developments in veterinary medicine. You and your pet will benefit from the combined expertise of our nationwide veterinary network.

We have veterinarians and support staff that been caring for animals in the veterinary medicine field for over 30 years.  We employ caring and compassionate individuals who know what it is like to be a pet parent, including over 15 technicians who have had special schooling and have passed a national exam to be certified in their field.

Together with your regular veterinarian, we take pride in taking good care of the “furry” family members in our community.

We can also help you with processing your pet insurance paperwork to maximize on your reimbursement.

Medical Insurance for your pet can come in handy when illness or injury arises. Trupanion covers 90% of veterinary costs including; hospital stays, diagnostic tests, medications, surgeries and other treatments when your pet is ill or injured. Trupanion does not impose pay out limits either. This means that your coverage will not be cut off and your rates will not rise just because your pet is unlucky or develops a chronic condition. You simply choose your deductible that works with your budget and Trupanion will cover 90% after it is met. For more information call or come by the clinic for a brochure.
