Although I had never been to the hospital before having to bring my best friend and companion of 9 years Tyson in Dr. Flanagan and the staff were all so compassionate. Tyson had mast cell tumor cancer when we moved here and was doing great but then all of a sudden his health just declined. When I called they saw me right away, Dr. Flanagan listened..really listened! The decision was made for him to cross the Rainbow bridge to his forever home where I will meet him again. If I ever decide to get another companion again I wouldn't hesitate for one minute to go back there. Thank you all so much.

The entire staff at Pepperell Veterinary Hospital are fantastic. When my 10 year old Male Lab suddently became ill and wasn't responding to the initial diagnosis and treatment, Dr Smith and Dr. Laura Berkowitz continued to reivew his bloodwork as he was not responding to initial treatment. They continued to work at it until the discovered he was afflicted from a new strain of a tick born illness which was not picked up in the initial tick screen. Dr. Berkowitz called me on a Sunday to see how he was responding after changing the treatment on Saturday. She was willing to meet me on a Sunday in case he needed additional care. He was doing much better, and the caring she showed, was above and beyond what I had expected. Thankfully my Lab is going great and back to running around the yard with his sister. I also had an Indoor/Outdoor cat that lived a happy life of 23 years under their care. Great place, highly recommend.

I have been to a lot of vets in the past 20 years, and I am very happy with this practice. The vets (I have worked with Dr. Dyer, Dr. Flanagan, and Dr. Osgood) are available, responsive, and collaborative. They are pro-active and care about my dog's health and comfort, during the exam and in general. Prices are reasonable, and appointments are easy to get (though they do refer out for after-hours care). I feel like my dog is safe in their care.

I used to bring my animals here when I lived in Pepperell but stopped when I moved out of town. I've tried a couple of different local vets but I just didn't feel that comfortable with them. The staff at Pepperell Veterinary Hospital are so friendly and caring...my lab actually seems to enjoy her vet visits. Well worth the drive back to Pepperell.

I have had 6 dogs, 3 of which along with my cat have been seen by Dr. Dyer. Kind, caring and thorough are all adjectives that come to mind for her. The staff from the office, to vet techs, to vets are the best. My pets love going there! They get right down on the floor with the pets (especially Dr. Smith and Osgood!) and interact with them before giving them shots or an exam. I am sorry that Ashia had a bad experience. It does not sound like them at all. My cat just had an exam with Dr. Dyer and she was concerned about her weight loss. Ended up running a battery of tests and made recommendations to us to pursue. She gave incredible care to my rescue dog who came to us with many problems and when the time came to put him down, you could not find a more sensitive, comforting place to take your forever buddy.

When I went searching for a veterinary office, a friend of mine suggested Pepperell Veterinary Hospital because he claimed an office closer to my house was severely negligent, and the others were overpriced. This is the vet he brought his dog to and hadn't had any problems.

I brought my cat there for a regular checkup in late 2004, 2006 and 2007. Each time I mentioned that my cat, Eip Top, throws up regulary and both he and/or his sister Pot Pie yowl in rooms with pipes. I told them I never visually caught the cats while they were yowling.

The vets there said ET threw up because he was likely allergic to something like corn or wheat in his food (Iams) and that I should switch him to another food. They shrugged and just looked perplexed at the idea of them yowling in rooms with pipes (kitchen, bathrooms, laundry rooms) and said they were just weird.

Recenly, I got fed up with the hour long car ride and the fact that they never seem to do anything I couldn't do at home. I took the cats to the expensive vet closer by, Countryside Animal hospital in Chelmsford. As soon as I mentioned vomiting, the vet strongly recommended bloodwork. It turns out he's in the late stages of chronic renal failure, which means he's had it for years. If we had caught this early, when I had first mentioned it to the vet, we'd have been able to switch him to an appropriate diet and monitor his bloodwork levels. Instead, we caught it late, and after 4K of emergency hospitalization vet bills, he's probably got less than a year to live, even with us giving him daily IV fluids and switching to prescription food.

As for the yowling in rooms with pipes, I recenly found out that cats with urinary tract/bladder infections (which we've recenly diagnosed in Pie) tend to pee on cool, smooth surfaces (like sinks and washing machines) and scream in pain while they urinate. Apparantly this is commonly known to anyone with a veterinary degree, and is even in basic petcare books and the Cornell Book of Cats.

If the vets at Pepperell, who have gone through years of veterinary school, didn't bother to notice that Eip Top was suffering from one of the most common causes of death in cats, and couldn't draw the connection between screaming in rooms with plumbing to a UTI, why bother going there at all? Either from laziness or inexperience, these vets cost my cat his life.

Sure, they are friendly, and sure, they are pretty professional. And boy they sure are cheap! But would you rather have a friendly, cheap vet or one who remembers what they learned in medical school? What about a vet who bothers to think about symptoms and check for life threatening diseases before suggesting that your pet is just 'odd'?

I've seen a few good reviews for this place for dogs, and none for cats. So perhaps if you have a dog they might be better educated. I still wouldn't chance it though.

Dr. Smith and his team are world class. He took care of a problem with my cocker spaniel that all the vets she had been to before were not taking seriously enough.

She had some sutures from when she had been spay 10 years earlier that were either the wrong ones or did not dissolve like they were supposed to. (from another vet.) The area kept splitting open. Her vet in Virginia would not take them out, another vet in Mass. would not take them out - and then finally Dr. Smith agreed to do it.

It was good thing he did because there was severe tearing of her abdominal wall and indeed the suture material was not the type that should have been used. The poor dog - I wonder if she was silently suffering because her other vets would not do the surgery!

I have four pets - 2 cats and 2 dogs and the staff takes very good care of all of them. My other cocker spaniel has epilepsy and they were really great when he was having horrendous seizures. He is now stabilized.

This is a very clean and friendly place to take your pet if they are sick or just for an annual check up. The veterinarians are very good with the pets and actually got down on the ground with my dog to check him out since he was fearful of the doctor.

They really care for the pets. They make the pets feel up to new. They are very gentle with the animals and have no problems in referring them.

PROS: located in Pepperell
CONS: could be expensive

This is a very reasonably priced veterinary hospital. The place is clean and the vets seem to really care about their patients. They have an in and an out door which makes it easy for sneaking your dog out if your dog is they type to start conflicts with other dogs! (mine is so this is very useful). I also found their prices for heartworm pills and flea med very reasonable.
