Read What Our Clients Say

  • "My two cats consistently get the BEST care from the vets at Falmouth Veterinary Hospital, starting with the lovely people at check-in to the kind and caring folks upon leaving. The vets and assistants genuinely care about the health and well-being of our two kitties, and as a pet mom, I always feel reassured and happy with their care."
    Kristen B.
  • "I have been a client there for over 30 years. Care is always excellent. Would not want to ever have to go elsewhere. They are great and so loving when treating my dogs."
    Marcia M.
  • "Dr Graves goes above and beyond with our senior dog. He is caring and thoughtful and respectful. He understands that our dog is a part of our family and treats him as such. The other vets we have met have been just as great and all of the staff are friendly and helpful. We could go to closer practices, but we won’t because this crew is worth the drive."
