    -Animal Shelter Inc of Sterling from Sterling, MA

    Pet Image From all of us at the Animal Shelter Inc of Sterling we want to thank VCA's staff for giving our pets and adopters amazing care and compassion!

    Over the past 9 years we've been fortunate enough to have a partnership with all the NE hospitals!

    We do alot of work with Northboro VCA and Dr. Melissa Dudley... if it weren't for Dr. Dudley we wouldn't be fortunate enough to make some of our pets happy and healthy enough for adoption. Dr. Dudley and the staff at Northboro have always gone above and beyond to help our shelter, pets, adopters and staffs pets... and we thank you!

    Every time I'm at the hospital - the staff has been so compassionate to all clients and pets and they know all the pets names as they are walking through the door!

    It says alot! The staff is super professional, dedicated and caring... and thats what I want when looking for a hospital for my own pets and the pets at our shelter!

    So kudos to all the staff at Northboro and throughout NE for giving our homeless pets a new leash on life!

    We love you all...

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
