Experts of Pet Wellness
When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at Cape Ann Veterinary Hospital in Gloucester MA have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. Some members of our staff have been providing care since we opened in 1979. We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient. Call 978-283-3238 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you. We have office hours most days from 8 AM until 7 PM, and Saturdays from 8 AM until 3 PM (hours may vary depending on appointments).
Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team.
Our high standards enable us to provide the devoted care that your pet deserves. We know trusting your pet’s health with a stranger can be difficult, which is why we make our best effort to get to know our pet parents and patients on a more personal level. We implement diagnostic imaging alongside laboratory services to provide pet parents with a well-defined diagnosis. Should a veterinary emergency occur, we make our best effort to see pet patients promptly and provide care as soon as possible.
In some circumstances, we refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as critical care, internal medicine or surgery.
As a veterinary practice, we know that by providing our pet parents with a thorough understanding of numerous pet conditions, we are empowering them to make more informed decisions regarding their pet’s treatment. Through comprehensive exams and investigative practice, we can express our concerns about your pet’s health and propose a knowledgeable solution.

and in keeping with the principles of veterinary medical ethics.
[We] accept as a lifelong obligation the continual improvement
