At BluePearl-Charlestown, patients will have access to advanced technology, including a 64-slice Toshiba CT machine, digital X-rays, ultrasound and endoscopy.

“We recognize that pets are part of our families, and we believe they should have access to top-quality health care,” said Dr. Kristina DePaula, a BluePearl medical director and board-certified critical care specialist. “Our new hospital gives us the opportunity to expand our services and provide care for even more pets in the greater Boston community when they need it most.”
