Proper dental hygiene and the treatment of gum disease are vital components of your pet’s overall well-being. Boston Animal Hospital helps to prevent and detect dental problems by offering routine teeth cleanings, dental examinations, and digital dental radiographs (x-rays). Our staff can refer you to a board-certified veterinary dentist for specialized dental procedures, such as root canals and crowns.
Equipped with a state-of-the-art surgical suite and modern patient monitoring equipment, Boston Animal Hospital offers a full range of elective procedures, most commonly including: ovariohysterectomy (spay) and castration (neuter), laceration and wound repair, growth removals with biopsy and teeth extractions. Our doctors have close working relationships with boarded veterinary surgeons in the Boston area for more advanced or emergent procedures and would be glad to provide referrals for these services. Visit our surgery page to learn more about what to expect before, during, and after your pet’s surgical procedure.
With the latest digital radiology equipment, the Boston Animal Hospital team can immediately acquire the information needed to diagnose some common medical and surgical issues. Radiographs or X-rays often enable the detection of some skeletal abnormalities, tumors, bone cancer, certain types of uroliths or bladder stones, and certain foreign objects in the stomach.

At Boston Animal Hospital, our onsite laboratory capabilities provide quick, accurate answers to your pet’s health questions. With diagnostic testing equipment at their fingertips, our staff can analyze a variety of body fluids and samples including cytology, blood, urine, and feces. Whether you seek diagnosis or preventative evaluations, the Boston Animal Hospital onsite laboratory can identify issues and lead to necessary treatments.
For your complete convenience, Boston Animal Hospital includes an onsite pharmacy with an extensive supply of prescription medication, heartworm preventatives, flea and tick products, prescription diets, and additional health care items. Save time by filling your pet’s prescription during your visit. If we do not carry the item you need, we will happily order it for you or write you a prescription to use at a local pharmacy.
An easy and painless procedure, microchipping offers multiple benefits with minimal cost.

The microchip contains a unique alphanumeric code that corresponds with the owner’s contact information on a national registry. Take advantage of this effective identification device and ensure the return of a lost, beloved pet.
