  • Thank you for being so kind

    -John, Keli, Kyle and Jake from Randolph, MA
    Pet Name: Kaci

    Pet Image After many visits to our regular vet and watching our best girl, Kaci, having a hard time getting up and eventually having a tough time even walking, we decided it was time to say goodbye to our beloved German Shepherd of almost 11 years. Having never been to the VCA Weymouth Animal Hospital, we were nervous at first, but quickly saw how sympathetic everyone was to our feelings. Dr. Cindy Lopes was extremely kind and compassionate as she explained what she was going to do and what to expect. We are so grateful for her genuine kindness as this truly was one of the hardest things we had ever done. Thank you Dr. Lopes and the staff at the VCA. You really made a difference to us.

  • Thank you

    -Marie Morgan from South Boston, MA
    Pet Name: Strummer

    I recently had an emergency situation with my dog, Strummer, and we had to visit the 24 hour Emergency Service Department at VCA South Shore.

    From the moment we came through the door the staff was kind, patient, understanding, and quick. Assessing the situation and comforting us came naturally to each and every staff member. Dr. Nicole Govoni was both professional and knowledgeable, and explained everything to us. Dr. Govoni allowed us to see Strummer before leaving him there for the night, and called us later to explain what had transpired since we had left him there. We felt very comfortable leaving him in your care because we could see that each and every person was dedicated to providing the best care possible.

    The following morning the doctor called us again, and gave us an update. This put us at ease and really helped us to relax for the day. At pick up the staff again explained everything to us, including after care instructions.

    Strummer is now home safe and sound recovering with us all thanks to the amazing staff at VCA South Shore. We could never thank you enough for doing what you do every day, and hope you all know how much you are appreciated.

  • VCA saved my life

    -Shilo from Carver, MA
    Pet Name: Shilo

    Pet Image Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart! To the wonderful vets, technicians, desk staff, and anyone I may have missed-you all helped to save our German Shepherd puppy's life after she got hit by a car. She had lost a lot of blood on her way to the hospital, she was very lethargic, and she had developed a heart murmur. I was so thankful for all the care and expertise the VCA staff provided to Shilo. Thanks to all of you, she is healing and doing so much better! THANK YOU!

  • The best service with the best staff

    -Antonella from Quincy, MA
    Pet Name: Lily

    Pet Image When my Chihuahua Lily, got bitten by a much larger dog I rushed her to the VCA Weymouth Hospital. It was my first time there and the service and staff were fantastic! Lily is now resting at home and will soon celebrate her sixth birthday. Thanks to all the staff and keep up the great work. It is because of people like you that animals can enjoy long and happy lives.

  • Meticulous Surgeon

    -Patty Cook from Scituate, MA
    Pet Name: Jasper

    I would like to thank Dr. David Diamond for his level of care for animals requiring surgery. He is a meticulous surgeon and a very caring person. My cocker spaniel is nearly 14 years old and Dr. Diamond has operated on him 3 times. About 8 or 9 years ago, Jasper tore an ACL and a year later, the other. Dr. Diamond repaired both of those and those knees are bionic. So when Jasper's regular verterinarian recommended an ear ablation for Jasper's recurrent ear infections, I knew who I would go to. The surgery is invasive and the photos I saw online were disfiguring and I didn't know what to do. Dr. Diamond suggested that closing both ears was really the best way to go, and I steeled myself for the worst, but no need to worry. Jasper's ears are beautiful and look completely normal. His groomer commented that it is the best ear ablation she has ever seen. He is almost 3 months out from surgery now and without a hint of pain or redness. He is completely deaf now, but his constant ear infections had left him substantially deaf anyway. I feel like this was the best decision I could have made for my dog, and I'm so glad Dr. Diamond is the doctor we chose.

  • Synovial joint cancer

    -Bunny girl from Weymouth, MA
    Pet Name: Samantha

    Samantha had her right front limb amputated last December. The staff and doctors: Morrison and Fitzpatrick were amazing! We will always be grateful!

  • thank you

    -kelly mccusker from weymouth, MA
    Pet Name: Pudgy

    Thank you to Dr. Melissa Henrickson. She was extremely caring and took good care of my cat. I had come from another vet who rushed me out, and did no take the time to properly treat my cat. Dr. Henrickson made sure my cat was diagnosed and feeling better before I took him home. She took the time to answer all our questions. She was very patient and nice. We could tell she was an animal lover! We will definitely be back with our animals. Thank you again. This was our best vet experience.

  • Exceptional Care and Compassion

    -Frank and David Taylor from Quincy, MA
    Pet Name: Dailen

    Pet Image David and I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your exceptional care you provided our 13 yrd old German Shepherd, Dailen when we brought her in with the final stages of her fight with Cancer. We always felt she was getting the best care throughout her life and even when she was first diagnosed. This visit was no exception, and it was your exceptional care that allowed us to have the entire weekend to spend some quality time with her and spoil her in the fashion she was used to. We cannot thank you enough for giving us all that extra time to be with her.

    When we brought her to you that next Tuesday, you saw our struggle as we knew her body was weak but her mind was still alert. It was your reassurance with her behavior that allowed us to make the decision. It is those reassurances that help comfort us and allow us to accept our decision as the right one even today. We can say that the whole experience you and the staff provided us to bring Dailen to peace was very comforting. Your compassion was strongly felt and helped us get through it.

    We know that only time will heal this wound, but we again appreciate all you did to make this easier for us. You and everyone at the VCA do so great work with the animals and their caretakers, it is to be commended.

  • Thank you for the many years of caring

    -Lea from Milton, MA
    Pet Name: Tessa and Buddy

    My family has brought our pets to the VCA for years. First we started with my cat Buddy and he was 14 years old when we had to put him to sleep due to cancer, and the staff and doctors were amazing. And just recently we had to put our Boston Terrier, Tessa, to sleep due to a serious medical condition and again the staff there were beyond kind and caring. And a special thanks goes to Dr. Politano for taking such great care of our Buddy and Tessa. It meant a lot to us. You're care, concern, and understanding of our needs and our pets needs showed through your work. Thank you to all of you for the excellent care.

  • The Doctor you want

    -Doug Easthope from marlborough, MA
    Pet Name: Foxy Roxy Roy

    Dr. Fitzpatatrick.......what a wonderful person! He helped us with our best friend Foxy Roxy Roy thru her cancer treatment. He showed so much love and compassion she got excited to see him!

    He was impartial and never push any treatments, but gave us options. I thank him and VCA for that.
