Wachusett Animal Hospital and Pet Retreat is a full service State-Of-The-Art small animal hospital.  We offer the area’s only after hours emergency services, critical and overnight care along with routine preventative veterinary services, boarding, doggy daycare, and grooming all under one roof!

Our mission is to set the standard in pet care. We are dedicated to providing our patients with the highest level of veterinary medical care, along with the safest environment, possible.


When my dog Tucker was having trouble breathing last year (on Sunday) a call to our "vet" referred us to another vet 45+ minutes away! I said screw it, called Wachusett Animal who told us to come right away. Sadly Tucker died en route, but when we got to Wachusett they took him in, gave us a lovely paw print memento and treated us with respect for our loss. A few days later we received a lovely sympathy card from them, and we weren't even their clients! Needless to say, when we do get another pet, we will go to Wachusett!

Thank you for the compassion and sympathy given to me when I brought my beloved Sammie to you during the storm. It was so comforting. What I appreciated most was the kind words from the two people I spoke to on the phone while en route. I will gladly tell everyone how great this place is. Thank you
