Bristol County Veterinary Hospital, established in 1988 by Dr. Amy Hurd. The doctors and staff at B.C.V.H. are committed to providing the highest quality veterinary care for your animals. We care for many species of animals. Some of our patients include (but are not limited to) dogs, cats, and rabbits. Our team of professionals is committed to maintaining the highest possible standards of medical and surgical expertise and makes every effort to bring to your animals the latest and greatest developments in veterinary medicine. At Bristol County Veterinary Hospital, we treat your pets as if they were our own. We provide complete up-to-date care for your pets. Our high standards apply to every aspect of our hospital, including experience and training of our professional staff as well as our clean and modern facility. Examinations and immunizations The veterinarians and staff at Bristol County Veterinary Hospital strongly believe in the concept of preventive medicine. Regular wellness examinations and immunizations are extremely important for maintaining the health of your pet. Due to recent discoveries and innovations in veterinary medicine, your pet can be protected from most contagious diseases. Today, many immunizations and preventive treatments are available that did not exist just a few years ago. The knowledgeable staff at Bristol County Veterinary Hospital can help you decide what preventive measures are necessary for your pet(s). Medical Care With our state-of-the-art equipment and our highly trained staff, we provide complete medical care for all pets. Full Surgical Services Our hospital is equipped to perform most surgical procedures from spays and neuters to complicated orthopedic (bone and joint) procedures. We take pride in our equipment and our modern patient monitoring systems. Dentistry and Preventive Teeth Cleaning Animals (like people) need regular dental care. Gum disease causes pain, accounts for the loss of teeth, and can lead to serious generalized bacterial infections. Our physical exams include a thorough examination of the mouth. Teeth cleaning (removal of dental plaque and tartar) is an important step in preventing future dental problems. In-House Laboratory Facilities Our extensive in-house laboratory provides information that is critical to your sick or injured pet. Due to our modern in-house diagnostic equipment, animals can receive appropriate treatment immediately after arriving at the hospital. Our laboratory is equipped to perform preanesthesia blood testing. This procedure greatly reduces the risks that can be associated with surgery. Pharmacy We stock an extensive drug inventory so medications can be dispensed before leaving the clinic. Our hospital carries several types of heartworm prevention medication as well as a large inventory of flea products. Medical Imaging We have a complete radiographic facility for taking and developing imaging films. Hospitalization Hospitalization is needed for sick or debilitated animals. Hospitalization of of patients allows for constant monitoring, proper delivery of medication, fluid administration (if needed), I.C.U. type treatment and good basic T.L.C.

Every time we go in there they give us an a la carte menu of what should could may need to be done. Isn't there standard care? Shouldn't they know? It is all trial and error. Even when it is a check up they do the same. Strange... (more)
