We open our new hospital June 27th! We have built our brand new, state-of-the-art hospital and the whole team is excited to begin our new venture at our new home. Meet us at our new location, less than 3 miles away, at 141 Winthrop Avenue in Lawrence. Follow us on Facebook for more information and updates on the move. We will be planning a strategic move to limit disruption to emergency services. 

Check out the time lapse of the new building’s construction, from demolition in April 2018 to opening in June 2019:



Our veterinary team is committed to maintaining regular and open lines of communication with yourselves – the pet owner – and your family veterinarian if you have been referred to Bulger from another hospital. We are proud to provide all of our clients with timely access to advanced specialists and emergency services, as well as ongoing wellness and routine health care. At Bulger, you can rest assured that your pet is always in the reliable care of an experienced practitioner.

Advanced diagnostic capabilities and a skilled emergency veterinary team allow us to quickly identify problems and quickly initiate treatment. Our board-certified veterinary specialists provide a complete range of care in internal medicine, ophthalmology and surgery.

At Bulger we understand and respect that your pet’s quality of life is about more than just his or her physical well being. Alternative options to traditional medicine are available for pet owners seeking acupuncture for their pets; physical therapy & rehabilitation performed by Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioners (CCRP) at our sister hospitals in Woburn and Portsmouth, is also available to aid in managing old age and long term conditions.

Bulger is equipped with sophisticated surgical facilities and comprehensive diagnostic capabilities, including digital radiography, ultrasonography, endoscopy, Ocular Ultrasound, electrodiagnostics, in-house laboratory and pharmacy.

Patients referred to Bulger by a referring veterinarian will be treated only for the condition for which they were referred. No routine procedures, such as vaccinations or heartworm testing, will be performed on any referral or referral emergency patient.

American Veterinary Medical Foundation

VCCF - white vetical logoThe team at Bulger Veterinary Hospital would like to share some good news with our devoted clients.  We recently enrolled in the Veterinary Care Charitable Fund, a program of the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF).  The program was created to support veterinarians who provide medical services to the lost, neglected and abused animals that find their way into our hospital.  The program also allows us to care for animals in our community when their owners face extraordinary hardships.

We invite you to support us in this new endeavor by making a donation to the AVMF for pets in need.
