Angell Animal Medical Center is home to one of the largest veterinary cardiology groups in New England, with three full time board-certified cardiologists and three cardiology residents operating out of both our Boston and Waltham facilities. Our team size and collective expertise allow us to provide extensive outpatient hours, as well as collaboration and sub-specialization for excellence in all areas of cardiovascular medicine and interventional cardiology within the veterinary field.

The Angell cardiology team is focused on maintaining clinical excellence through optimal client service and animal care. We offer extended hours throughout the week for our outpatient appointments, which we are able to facilitate in both our Boston and Waltham locations. We provide on-site availability of cardiologists six days per week in Boston and four days per week (rotating) in our Waltham location. With consultation through our Emergency and Critical Care service, we are able to work closely with the ER staff clinicians to provide cardiac support on Sundays, holidays and overnights as well.

For more information on both our inpatient and outpatient services, please see below. To learn more about our team, please read our staff biographies by following the link below. Should you have any additional questions, or to inquire about scheduling an appointment, please  reach out directly to Hannah Clayman, secretary to the cardiology department, at 617-541-5038.
