I have been bringing my dog to BVC since he was 3 months old...he’s almost 4-years-old now. He has always received excellent care.The entire staff is very professional. I’m very happy that I chose BVC for him. - Virginia K.
Your doctors really care about my pet's well-being. I do want to acknowledge Jessica at the front desk. She really is great! She is knowledgeable, kind, and caring. - Boston Veterinary Care Client
Great service. Very knowledgeable and nice people. They treated my puppy with much care and patience. - Antonino N.
We are new to international moves with pets, and the staff was very helpful to us; both in caring for our pets and in answering questions and reaffirming that we had the correct information and documentation that we needed to travel. Thank you! - Boston Veterinary Client
