Veterinary Emergency Transport:

Veterinary Emergency Transport has been providing 24 hour rapid veterinary emergency care since 2001. As a registered Massachusetts ambulance, our primary unit can respond in Code-3 mode in the same way as “human” ambulances.

This mobile ICU is equipped with a GPS navigation system, closed-circuit video monitoring system, electrical inverter, suction unit, IV pumps, infusion warmer, cardiac/respiratory arrest support and an oxygen cage with more than one-hundred hours of constant oxygen delivery. When fully stocked with life-saving monitoring devices and pharmaceuticals, the V.E.T. ambulance is be better equipped than many human ambulances.

With the addition of their Equine Rescue Unit (ERU), V.E.T ambulance is now able to respond to equine and other large animal emergencies. The ERU, which is easily towed behind our primary ambulance, is equally well-equipped with the above life-saving measures as well as refluxing equipment, manual & motorized winches and other rescue equipment for “down” animal rescues.

Abdominal ultrasounds, echocardiograms, fluoroscopy and endoscopic procedures are just a few of the advanced diagnostic tools available to you and your family veterinarian. As an extension of your family veterinarian’s hospital, you may be asked to bring your pet here for one of these diagnostics. Once completed, the results will forward to your family veterinarian to formulate a treatment plan.


In addition to echocardiograms, we can perform electrocardiograms (EKG), and Holter monitor testing. Vascular and cardiac procedures are assisted by our fluoroscopy unit. Once our specialists can pinpoint the nature of the heart condition, we can formulate a specific plan to treat the condition.

Advanced Imaging

The Vimago is a Robotic, High Definition, Computed Tomography-Fluoroscopy-Digital Radiography platform that is mobile but capable of imaging an entire patient in a single series, and can fit even extremely large dogs.

The Vimago is mobile and can be moved throughout our facility to be used as a diagnostic or interventional Multi-modality imaging device.  Learn More…

Internal Medicine:

Since an ultrasound provides key insight to the size, shape, and architecture of an organ, consultations are often performed in conjunction with an abdominal ultrasound.
