What Our Boston Clients Say

Another amazing visit with Dr. Cimino! Anyone who can treat a dog who is lying in their lap licking them is extremely talented!!!! On time arrival and thorough examinations. Could not ask for anything more.

Could not have been better. My cat was a rescue and is very strong and does not like strangers. He handled the visit very well, had a thorough visit, had more minor things like getting his nail clipped. Will use them exclusively in future.
Marcia B.H.
Five stars
I loved our visit. The vet was kind, sensitive, and very helpful. He helped guide me to the best path to take for my cat baby. If she comes through her illness, I won't hesitate to continue her care with you. I will also recommend you highly to others. You made a difficult time a bit easier. And thank you for visiting so quickly.
