What to Expect

Happy puppy at Shawme Animal Hospital

When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic, you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service.  We at Shawme Animal Hospital in Sandwich MA have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet.  Opened in July of 2015, we have a new state-of-the-art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient.  Call (508)833-0883 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.

Adult pets should plan to see a doctor once a year for a wellness screening. Senior pets (dogs > 7 years and cats >9 years) may need to be seen twice a year in order to more effectively catch disease in early stages.

Please bring in any medical history you have for 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.  If not, let us know everything that you think will be important.

In some circumstances, our doctors will refer your pet to a specialist or referral hospital for advanced testing not offered locally (MRI, CT scan, radioactive iodine, etc.).  Veterinary medicine has advanced greatly in the last several decades, and as a profession, we are able to offer better and cutting-edge treatments for our pets.  We will help you to decide when advanced medical options are necessary, as well as to facilitate getting your pet to the needed specialist.
