We treat you like family.

Quality pet care in Acton, MA and beyond.


We put your pet’s health first.

Great Road Veterinary Hospital has proudly served the Acton area and surrounding communities for over 25 years. Dr. Kelman took over the hospital from Dr. Mark Smith in 2001, which now provides medical, surgical, dental, and behavior services to the dogs, cats, and pocket pets of over 3,000 clients. The hospital and staff offer personalized care, and when necessary, can provide additional access to an extensive network of veterinary specialists and state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. We maintain reliable contacts with board-certified specialists in cardiology, radiology, oncology, behavior, and internal medicine all over New England and beyond to treat each case as thoroughly as possible. The veterinarians of GRVH continuously strive for clinical expertise and continuity of care in every case they manage.

Relationships matter.

The key to our mission at GRVH is client education. We believe that successful therapy can best be achieved when doctors take the time to explain the underlying causes of disease. We pride ourselves in our dedication to keeping clients fully informed and up to date on the well-being of their animals through our commitment to communication, both during and after normal work hours. We are extremely grateful to our long list of loyal clients, never losing sight of the fact that the people and pets who walk through our doors are the reason we exist as a practice.
