VESH - About Us

Our Story

About Our Location

Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Hospital is just a few minutes off of I-91 in South Deerfield, Massachusetts. We chose that location because of its central proximity to western MA, southern Vermont, New Hampshire, northern Connecticut, and upstate New York.

Situated on 14 acres of partially wooded land, our facility has plenty of parking spaces, so you never need to worry about city traffic or parking when your pet is having a medical emergency.

Specialized Treatment For Your Furry Family Members

At Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Hospital (VESH) in South Deerfield, MA, we have provided highly effective, advanced veterinary medicine combined with deeply compassionate care in a nurturing environment since 2006.

As an emergency and specialty referral hospital, VESH does not offer routine veterinary care like annual wellness checkups, vaccinations, or flea and tick prevention. Our focus is on delivering advanced diagnostics and veterinary medicine for ailing pets in much the same way that medical specialists support seriously ill people.

Our experts collaborate with your primary care veterinarian to evaluate and manage treatment when your pet is suffering from injury, trauma, chronic issues, acute disease, or an unusual disorder that requires the in-depth knowledge of a trained specialist.
