The animals surrendered to the MSPCA at Nevins Farm require varying degrees of medical attention and veterinary care. Most are due for routine vaccines and a spay or neuter surgery, while others need more specialized care, including geriatric physicals, dental cleanings, and medical treatments for kennel cough or upper respiratory infections. The MSPCA’s Medical Suite staff is available five days a week to meet the medical and health needs of these animals.
The public frequently inquires about veterinary services available at the MSPCA at Nevins Farm. Because of the high volume of animals surrendered to us, our staff must devote the majority of appointments to in-house patients. This allows animals presenting medical problems to be assessed and treated soon after intake. Because animals are vaccinated and sterilized right at the adoption center, they can become available for adoption and find their forever homes faster than if they were transported to an outside facility for veterinary care.
If your animal is in need of emergency medical care, contact your veterinarian as soon as possible. If your vet’s office is closed, contact an emergency clinic. Local 24-hour veterinary hospitals include Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston: (617) 522-7282 and Bulger Animal Hospital in North Andover: (978) 682-9905.
Thanks to several grants, the MSPCA at Nevins Farm offers low-cost spay-neuter surgeries for dogs, cats, and rabbits of low income residents in several Merrimack Valley communities. Learn More
