It Takes a Village

Inspired by a personalized philosophy to veterinary practice we set out to change the way pets receive care. Boston Veterinary Clinic strives to enhance and promote the human, animal relationship. (Because, after all, owning a pet promotes your health, too.) We’re proud to be the first Fear Free certified clinic in Boston. So, your pet’s emotional and physical well-being is prioritized with every visit. Boston Veterinary Clinic puts the patient first and reduces fear, anxiety, and stress from the start.

We took our new dog to Boston Veterinary Clinic, and we were so pleased! Dr. Lindsay was great – she was so sweet with our pup! He clearly loved her. He didn’t even notice when she gave him his vaccine! She spent extra time with us, answering our “new dog paw-rents” questions (of which there were many!) and she was kind and helpful. The facility is nice and all the folks who work there are very friendly and kind. Highly recommend!
