Your trusted animal hospital on Newbury Street
"We have never come across a better veterinary facility, period."
You’re not likely to find a group of people more invested in you and your pets anywhere else. At Back Bay Veterinary Clinic, veterinarian and animal hospital in Boston, MA, we’re a hands-on practice that offers the quality and convenience of a large animal hospital within a friendly neighborhood setting.
We want to know you and your pets by name and provide care that is exceptional and tailored to their needs. We also offer extended hours 7 days a week—so you know we’re here for you.
A few years ago we moved from Boston to the South Shore (40 min drive) and even still, we make the trip into the city whenever we need Dr. Wheeler and her excellent team. We have never come across a better veterinarian facility, period. A few days ago, our dog had four surgeries at the same time and we feared his recovery will be a rough one but in two days he was back on his feet and acting normally again which simply speaks to how good Dr. Wheeler really is. One day after the surgeries he was in pain so they immediately sent a new prescription and Dr. Wheeler even followed up with us after hours. This office genuinely cares about the pets they see and because of that, we refuse to go anywhere else. Highly recommended.
My cat and I both agree that we love this clinic. The staff is extremely kind and it shows on all levels. My cat is no longer afraid of the vet. She trusts them. I'm just the lady who pays the bills. If my cat is happy then I'm happy.
You came recommended by our neighbor and I couldn't be happier we decided to take her advice. it felt like visiting a friend. Everyone was friendly and it looked like everyone loves being there.
Hands down the best veterinary service I have ever received. Such a dedicated team of absolute professionals committed to the health and well being of their patients, and the clear, friendly communication to the clients. Bravo!
The care my dog has received at Back Bay has far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Sager-Gellerman has gone above and beyond in regards to treating my dog and addressing my concerns.
After Hours Veterinary Support Available 24/7

Animals of all kinds fill my earliest memories . I knew at four that I wanted to become a veterinarian. Many years have passed, but the commitment to caring for those who cannot speak for themselves remains the same. Animals make us better people. They also rely on us to provide them with care to ensure their lives are as good as we can make them.
After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992 and completing an internship at Angell Animal Medical Center, my dream was to open a veterinary practice that provided the best care for its patients and the best service for their families. I wanted to become part of the fabric of a community, the neighborhood vet, a welcoming practice that could be counted on for personalized and exceptional care. A place where you’d come whenever you needed help to care for your furry family.
At Back Bay Veterinary Clinic we strive for just that. To stay ahead of the curve, abreast of the cutting edge, embrace the newest technologies and treatments, all while remaining true to the personalized connection. There is no replacement for the relationship and trust that forms between caregiver and patient, and the commitment that we undertake when caring for your pet stands as the most important part of our foundation.
Our clinic is warm and inviting and our team is composed of some of the kindest, most intelligent and incredible human beings you will ever meet. We treat our patients with a Fear Free approach that makes them rush up our steps on their arrival, or at least not hide in the corners.
We want what’s best for your pets and what’s best for your family, and we work together to provide the most exceptional care possible.
After 20 years on Newbury Street, I’m proud and humbled to be part of this amazing profession and this vibrant community, and most importantly to have had the privilege of caring for your beloved family members.
Please stop by to introduce yourself. There’s always a friendly face, a big gumball or piece of chocolate for you, and always a belly scratch and yummy treat for your best friend.
We hope to meet you soon.
