What a wonderful place to bring a pet. Our primary communication at the beginning was with a veterinary student, but we quickly learned there's a whole team of interns and residents and techs and experts behind the scenes. Our Pomeranian fell out of bed and had her hip dislocated in the middle of the night--and we headed straight to Tufts. They made sure she was comfortable and happy and did the surgery the following morning. They were great with the follow-up and our little dog is doing just fine now.

Yes, it's pricey--but that comes with the best care out there. I wouldn't hesitate to go there again.

Our dog wouldn't have survived without Tufts small animal hospital. Our experience with the small animal hospital was that the staff were expert, skillful, supportive and caring for the dog, and the treatment was successful. Our dog had a full blown pyometrium, an infected uterus. It was about as critical as a badly infected appendix is for a human. The dog needed immediate skillful surgery to avoid rupturing the uterus while removing it, follow up IV antibiotics, and around the clock care for a day or two and a lab that could do blood work promptly to monitor the infection. The local vet does surgery, and could do a hyterectomy, but not necessarily this one, might not have all the supplies needed on hand, and didn't have the staff to respond if the dog needed more than supportive care at night. So they sent us to Tufts. The surgery went well, and than they got the systemic infection under control and in a couple of days the dog was well enough to come home and made a full recovery. Thank-You Tufts.

As other reviews have mentioned, the only awkward part is they don't work for free. Their policy for emergency admissions is to get a large enough deposit or credit card authorization to cover whatever the bill might be before they take the animal and refund (or don't charge) the difference. In our case the deposit was around $2,000, and the final bill was about 2/3 of that for the surgery, xrays, lab work, meds, and all other care. From what I've heard from others, the other best-care veterinary hospitals (e.g. Angel Memorial in Boston) have similar pricing.
