Our Services

About Us
Great Road Veterinary Hospital has proudly served the Acton area and surrounding communities for over 25 years. Dr. Kelman took over the hospital from Dr. Mark Smith in 2001, which now provides medical, surgical, dental, and behavior services to the dogs, cats, and pocket pets of over 3,000 clients. The hospital and staff offer personalized care, and when necessary, can provide additional access to an extensive network of veterinary specialists and state of the art diagnostic equipment. We maintain reliable contacts with board certified specialists in cardiology, radiology, oncology, behavior, and internal medicine all over New England and beyond, in order to treat each case as thoroughly as possible. The veterinarians of GRVH continuously strive for clinical expertise and continuity of care in every case they manage.

The key to our mission at GRVH is client education. We believe that successful therapy can best be achieved when doctors take the time to explain the underlying causes of disease. We pride ourselves in our dedication to keeping clients fully informed and up to date on the well being of their animals through our commitment to communication, both during and after normal work hours. We are extremely grateful to our long list of loyal clients, never losing sight of the fact that the people and pets who walk through our doors are the reason we exist as a practice.

House Calls & Final Care

Since establishment, Great Road Veterinary Hospital has been offering house calls/final care for our clients. Why do we do this?
  • Some patients/clients are not sufficiently ambulatory to come into the hospital.
  • Some medical conditions (i.e. hypertension) can be exacerbated in the hospital setting ("white coat syndrome"), making therapeutic monitoring less accurate.
  • Lastly, home euthanasia is the most peaceful way that we know of to ease this transition, for both patient and often the client as well.
Our clients have trusted us with the health and well being of their pets/"family members" for years; we consider it an ethical obligation and honor to be of assistance during this time of transition.
