Mashpee Veterinary Hospital
430 Great Neck Rd. North, Mashpee; 508-477-9291. Good vets who are up to date on current diagnostics, testing, etc. They are also very nice and will give you lots of details on what’s ailing your buddy. Costs a little more for routine care than some other places, but worth it for annual exams and illnesses.
Deer Run Veterinary Services
168 Teaticket Hwy., Falmouth; 508-548- 3406. Hours: Mon-Fri 9:00-17:00, Sat 9:00-noon. Open year round. Do NOT use except for emergencies and routine vaccinations. If you do have to use them, make sure you get one of the younger vets who are more up to date on diagnostics.
West Falmouth Veterinary Clinic
593 West Falmouth Hwy (Route 28A), W. Falmouth; 508-540-5728. Hours: Mon-Fri 8:30noon, 15:0017:00, Sat 8:30-noon. Open year-round.
South Cape Veterinary Clinic
435 Waquoit Highway, East Falmouth; 508-457-7771. Excellent veterinary care, located on Rte. 28.
Buzzards Bay Veterinary Associates
230 Main St., Buzzards Bay, MA, Tel: 508-759-2521, Fax: 508-759-6782. Hours: Mon. – Thurs. 9am -8pm, Fri. & Sat. 9am – 5pm. This vet is a bit more expensive than some other ones, but they are very, very good, and very cutting-edge in veterinary medicine. I believe they have some specialists as well. They tend to use nicer vaccines (e.g. cat vaccines for cats, even for rabies) and are very thorough.
Falmouth Animal Hospital
188 Nathan Ellis Hwy., N. Falmouth, MA 02556, Tel: 508.563.7147. Hours vary by day (please check website). Located next to Falmouth Pet Resort (boarding, daycare and grooming center). Very thorough and take time to both get to know your pet and talk to you about diagnoses, options, etc. They insist on follow-ups even for the slightest non-routine visit and charge full price, which can become pricey, but that would be the only drawback to using this vet office.
Falmouth Pet Center

35 Davis Straits, Falmouth. 508-540-2842. Chain pet store near the Christmas Tree Shop.
