Very unhappy. Just moved to the area and needed a new Vet. Brought my puppy here for his first visit and naturally he was excited and was play biting. The vet spoke to me like a child asking me why I didn't bring a toy with me to calm him her surprise I had a toy in my pocket. The toy wasn't as effective as we hoped, but again...he's just a puppy. That didn't stop her. She asked me to bring a better toy next time and then proceeded to show me muzzle collars on Amazon that I should use on him. She then tried to sell me on a book about clicker training after I told her I had enrolled my puppy in classes at Petco. She told me the classes at Petco aren't as effective as this book. So apparently I'm not buying the correct toys and I'm wasting money on puppy training classes. She made it known that her way was the best way. I also asked her for a printout of the visit and she looked at me like I had 10 heads. Lastly, on my way out, she said to myself and the vet tech that I was going to remember to bring a better toy next time so my puppy won't bite her fingers. I wanted to remind her that I DID bring a toy and that he is a PUPPY, and that she should expect that when she's sticking needles into him and prying his mouth open, etc., etc. I was excited to come here after reading the good reviews but sadly, I was left disappointed. I didn't expect to leave the vet feeling like an elementary school child that just left the principal's office. I'll drive to my old vet in Weymouth. They were incredible. On a side note, the front desk employees are very pleasant. One of them offered to get the manager but what good will it do lol. I'd rather vent here and let all of you know instead ????

Thank you for making our first vet visit with our pup a happy one. We weren't sure how it would go as the rescue we got him from said he was abandoned at the vet's office. Thank you again. ????

My kitty's wellness visit was perfect from start to finish. The tech was professional, friendly, efficient and very sweet to my kitty. The vet was very nice, knowledgable, skilled and seemed to enjoy our kitty very much. I love this office.

Everyone from the vet techs to the doctors there is wonderful. Despite being a very busy and successful business they take the time to explain your pet’s care, and help your pet live their best life.

My two cats, Big Guy and GiGi, hadn’t been to a check-up since nearly a year before Covid-19 lockdown all tolled it was well over a year when we discovered our vet was retiring. So I decided to try BBVA and I am so glad I did! Dr Dana and her assistant were so good at putting my two cats at ease after such a long hiatus from vet appointments especially with it being a totally new vet office. The process was so efficient and well organized and the staff was so calming and confident that my cats (and I) were very calm throughout the appointment. The doctor explained all that she was doing and gave me choices on how best to approach my options keeping in mind my limited resources. All-in-all my cats were calm, the exam was thorough, the options were doable, and I left feeling good that I am being a responsible pet owner. I’ve been to other vets who are costly and who do not leave you feeling successful as a pet owner but instead you feel stressed and as though you’re not doing all you can do for your pets. My experience at BBVA was positive and my cats even looked at ease with it all .. I have to send a big Thank You to Buzzards Bay Veteranarian Associates - B H Reed

First visit with my 16 year old cat. Spent an hour there for a very thorough exam (only cursory exams at former vet). Reasonable cost for lab work, too. Drew a picture of a cat with his name on door, which was cute. Called when said she would about test results and took as much time as I needed to answer any of my questions. Great vet. Highly recommend.

Had a great visit! My dog cooper was itching his ear and face. They saw him the next day, and after two days of medicine he is acting like his old self. They were compassionate, kind, and gave every opportunity to ask questions! Very pleased to have a in person visit!

I was very impressed with BB Veterinary services. Did not have a long wait at all…taken almost immediately. The staff and the Vet were very very good with my dog. They were very adept in creating a record for my dog prior to the visit so that was all set prior to my appointment. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a competent Vet and staff.

The doctors there supply very capable veterinary care. The animals love them because they know they are there to help. The staff is friendly and courteous, and they offer senior discounts Monday through Friday. Who could ask for more?

This was my first time using BBVA and I couldn’t be happier. Dr. Higgins was great with my Appa, she gave me tips on how to train him to stop doing some puppy behaviors. She played with Appa, gave him treats. Her and her MA were very gentle with him while giving him his shots, and he behaved so well when these fine ladies cut his nails. I would recommend BBVA at anytime to anyone.

Very pleased with the responsiveness to my somewhat immediate need for my new dog. Follow-up is phenomenal. I feel confident in them as they discuss options available. A great team and glad I found Dr. Higgins!

I have been with Buzzards Bay Veterinary Associates since 2012, and my cats have been very well taken care of. The doctors and staff are compassionate, knowledgeable, experienced, and always polite and respectful. I started out with Dr. Elaine Gilleece, whom I loved, but she eventually moved back to the Dedham clinic, closer to home. Dr. Dana Anholzer and Dr. Sandy Higgins are there now and are doing a wonderful job, along with their staff. I'm especially impressed with the time they spend on the phone, explaining diagnoses and treatment plans. I'm very appreciative of their mindfulness of my low budget and their willingness to work it out. The clinic even offers a 10% discount for seniors. It's been harder not seeing them all in person with COVID around or being in the appointment with my cats, and I so look forward to the day I can. But, I truly respect and am thankful for the vigilance taken for all our protection.

Had an excellent first visit experience at Buzzards Bay Veterinary!! My baby boy Aussie is now almost 12 years old and we just switched from our previous vet who was farther away and are happy we did. Aussie has always been high anxiety but had no problems with the wonderful staff here. Thank you for taking care of Bubba. Ella anxiously awaits to meet you! ????

Even in the midst of COVID I received personal and attentive interactions from the receptionist to the techs and with Dr. Higgins. This was my first visit at Buzzards Bay Vet - coming from Boston for a second opinion; I am extremely pleased to now have a new veterinary home to care for my dog long-term. Well worth the hour drive - which says a lot!
