Pet Emergency and Urgent Care in Boston, MA

Welcome to VEG Boston!

Sometimes it’s obvious when your pet needs immediate help. But sometimes they just seem “off.” That’s where our emergency vets in Boston come in. From vomiting to complex surgeries, we treat emergency and urgent care needs for all kinds of pets—even avians and exotics! Discover the VEG difference, with our open floor plan hospitals, pet-parent participation, and an emergency-focused team that’s always ready to expect the unexpected.

Our Boston pet emergency hospital is located on Stuart St. between Berkeley St. and Arlington St. We’re just southwest of the Boston Public Garden and within minutes of the Boston Waterfront, Mission Hill, and Roxbury. 

Enter VEG Boston via our front entrance on Stuart St. (not Columbus Ave.). Street parking is free between 8pm-8am; call for parking garage locations.

If you need assistance getting your pet into the hospital, call ahead—one of our VEGgies will meet you at the door. Your pet will receive urgent vet care and you never have to leave their side.
