We focus exclusively on emergency treatment and advanced specialty veterinary care. (For annual vaccines and wellness care, please see your primary care veterinarian.)
Types of specialties & services.
Each BluePearl pet hospital is unique. Our Waltham hospital offers these specialties and services provided by skilled, compassionate and dedicated professionals.
If you believe your pet is sick, hurt or in distress, we’re here to provide expert care. Our trained emergency clinicians are prepared to diagnose and treat urgent cases, including severely injured or critically ill pets. Common emergency cases we see include:
- Animal attacks
- Collapse episodes
- Difficulty breathing
- Difficulty urinating
- Hit-by-car accidents
- Ingestion of medications, poisons or objects
- Severe diarrhea
Through every step of your pet’s emergency care experience, we keep you and your pet’s primary veterinarian informed and involved.
Anesthesiology & Pain Management
Our anesthesiology and pain management service works with other specialties in the hospital to provide safe and comfortable sedation and anesthesia for pets during diagnostic and surgical procedures. Using sophisticated tools to monitor your pet under anesthesia, our experts utilize advanced techniques to control pain.
Critical care patients come to our hospital due to trauma, the development of an acute life-threatening illness or immediately following major surgery. Our critical care service carefully evaluates each patient and creates a custom monitoring plan by measuring variables such as pulse, heart rate, blood pressure and more.
We are prepared to treat many different types of trauma, including:
- Respiratory distress
- Blood transfusions
Our radiology service performs many non-invasive and minimally invasive diagnostic procedures. These services allow the specialty clinicians unique, non-invasive opportunities for evaluating various diseases.
Veterinary internists are trained to take care of patients who can’t tell them what’s wrong. By using the pet’s history, clinical signs, lab results, imaging studies and other testing, our internal medicine team can diagnose severe, chronic illnesses or symptoms that appear suddenly.
When your pet needs surgery, our veterinary surgery team is ready to provide the best possible care. Our hospital is equipped with advanced tools, technology and monitoring capabilities to provide sophisticated medical care and compassionate service during your pet’s time of need.
Surgery may be the best option for pets with:
- Chronic diseases like ear or respiratory tract infections
- Congenital conditions like dysplasia or heart defects
- Trauma or injuries, including fractures, ligament and tendon injuries
Our team respects the close bond between pets and their owners and treats each with dignity, compassion and kindness.
