Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists
While the CCVS building was being planned, permits obtained and the facilities built, the surgeons of Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists treated many patients on Main st. of Buzzards Bay, sharing space with Buzzards Bay Veterinary Associates. In 2006, CCVS started seeing emergency patients 24/7. At this point, it became the Cape’s only 24-hour emergency and specialty hospital. To this day, CCVS (now located in Buzzards Bay & Dennis) remains the only 24-hour emergency and specialty veterinary hospital on the Cape. We moved into the current Buzzards Bay building in March of 2007. It was in 2007 when specialty services started to expand and our first critical care and internal medicine specialists were added. Over the years since we opened, CCVS has expanded in the number of specialists, doctors, services, and cases seen. We have developed an emergency and critical care veterinary residency program, a veterinary internship, and a structured veterinary nurse training program. Training and teaching keep our medicine sharp and our employees active and engaged.
In 2014, the team purchased a referral practice in South Dennis and grew it rapidly into a second CCVS satellite location, which is now known as Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists Dennis. Our Dennis location plays a pivotal role in taking care of pets from further out on the cape, making the drive more doable for their people and being available for stabilization and treatment for pets too unstable to make the further drive to Buzzards Bay.
Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists is an organization that was founded to take care of the pets of Cape Cod, the Islands, and the Eastern South Shore as well as the people who love them. The teams that have picked up the reins from the Henrys’ and Dr. Kochin, work hard to be there for people when their pets are sick or injured, requiring emergent or specialist care. We have and will continue to be an important part of our community, working with the referring veterinarians in our area to take complete care of pets. We strive to offer the best medicine with the most compassionate staff in New England.
