Pet Trusted. Smart Medicine.
Trusted, because we are a watchdog organization (no offence to our feline friends) that is constantly monitoring our industry for inaccurate or misleading information.
Smart, because of our reputation as the go-to-hospital for tough medical and surgical cases. We are often approached for second opinions on cases where the diagnosis has been elusive or where a conventional treatment plan has not provided satisfactory results.
- Smart means always trying to mitigate health risks while maximizing health benefits.
- Smart means knowing how to use all the high tech equipment in our hospitals.
- Smart means staying up to date on all the latest medical information.
- Smart means listening to pet owners and knowing that each case is unique.
- Smart means having a team of intelligent, dedicated, team-orientated veterinarians working on medical problems together.
Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center has an entire division dedicated to helping patients make good medical decisions while balancing risks, benefits, and values. At Veremedy all of our doctors are trained to review complex medical information and then explain it to pet owners in a way that they can understand. In each case our veterinarians discover the medical needs of the pet, then we determine the philosophical, and in some cases budgetary approach of the owner, then together we make a plan that meets both the pet's, and the pet owner’s needs.

A large part of our practice involves helping our clients balance risk-benefit ratios for diagnostic, medical and surgical procedures. After we balance risk and benefit, quite regularly we are asked to perform a cost-benefit analysis to see what makes the most financial sense. Yes, some pet owners are fortunate enough to never have to worry about the cost of medical care, but more often than not, our medical team has to help pet owners decide how to spend their pet care dollars intelligently. So, we often have to focus on the test or treatment or procedure that is most likely to provide the most useful information. To be fair, it is not always possible to create a cost-effective plan that has a good chance of working; in that case, when diagnostic or treatment options are constrained by budget limitations, we honestly strive to explain the probabilities of success so realistic expectations can be set.

Every veterinary hospital in the country says that they care, that they treat your pet like family, or that they are the most compassionate care givers in the land. So, if every veterinary hospital says they care, how do you know which one to choose?
First, we recommend looking for the little things. Does the waiting room allow you to keep your nervous kitty separate from active dogs? Does the staff reach out with a hug to a pet owner who has had to say good bye to a beloved family pet? Are Calming Pheromones used on soft towels for your cat's exam? Are strategies discussed on how to ease anxiety for your dog's visit?
Then we look to the big things, like does the staff care enough to follow up with you about your pet's illness or surgical recovery? Do the veterinarians and other staff work together to help your pet as a team? Do they care enough to have invested in the latest medical equipment and technology? We know that at Veremedy, the answer to all of these questions is yes—we care!
