Life is about relationships


At South Shore Veterinary Hospital, we place a high value on that principle.  We desire to partner with you in providing the highest quality, compassionate care for your companions.  Our goal is to exceed your expectations at every visit whether your pet has need of an annual well patient examination or complex medical/surgical care. To help serve you, we have nine doctors on staff, and a well equipped, modern hospital including digital radiology, ultrasound, and minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.  You will also find that we strive to keep veterinary medicine affordable. We want you to be able to make the best decisions possible for your pet's health and well-being for years to come.

We have a number of resources for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Browse around and look at our articles and links.
