Client Portal

online client portal make appointments check your pet's record


We are excited to announce a new way to access all of your pet’s records and make general practice appointments online without having to pick up the phone. We now offer a client portal through our hospital information system which provides you with the following options once you create an account:

  • View your pet’s medical information – including vaccinations and discharge summaries
  • Book appointments for all of your pets
  • Request refills of medication and view medications prescribed in the past
  • Review all invoices and payments

This portal is only available to General Practice clients of Bulger hospital at the moment (Not ER or Specialty services – these are coming soon!)


Our new hospital is now open! 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:


Bulger Veterinary Hospital, a member of the IVG network, provides a broad range of veterinary services to you and your family. Services at Bulger Veterinary Hospital include veterinary wellness and routine care, 24 hour emergency/critical care and board certified specialty services and  acupuncture. Our medical team is trained to provide care for dogs, cats, exotic pets (small mammals) and reptiles. We understand that your pet is a part of your family and we strive to treat you and your pet with the utmost empathy and respect for your relationship and bond.

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.
