Preventative care is key to keeping your pet healthy. A solid preventative care plan includes annual to semi-annual physical exams, depending on your pet's age and medical needs. We believe that vaccinations should be tailored to your individual pet's level of risk. In addition, external and internal parasite prevention is vital for both you and your cat's or dog's well-being.
We also encourage you to microchip your pet. Each year millions of pets go missing. A microchip is a rice-sized electronic device that is easily implanted under the skin between your pets shoulder blades with a needle similar to a vaccination and can be read with a universal electronic scanner. Each device has a unique number which is registered in a national database. Humane societies, shelters, animal control officers and veterinarians use these scanners in attempt to get lost pets back to their owners.

If you feel you have an EMERGENCY situation, it is best to call before arriving so that we can advise you on your situation and prepare for your arrival OR recommend an emergency care facility that may be better suited to respond to the emergency situation.
We offer same day urgent care services if you feel your pet needs to be seen before a regular appointment is available. Urgent care services can reach daily capacity, and may not be available at all times. Urgent care visits are conducted as a drop off visit. Once evaluated, your doctor's recommendations will be relayed by phone and treatment can begin. Most urgent care patients can be picked up after 2pm on the same day as drop off.
Dogs and cats are our specialty at South Shore Veterinary Hospital. On occasion, some of our doctors may see rabbits, pocket pets and ferrets by special request.
South Shore Veterinary Hospital accepts payment via cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and Care Credit. We require that payment be made at the time services are rendered.
