Small Animal and Large Animal Veterinary Services
for Massachusetts and New Hampshire

Founded in 1967, Amesbury Animal Hospital has been committed to serving Amesbury, Massachusetts, and neighboring communities in Northeastern Massachusetts (Salisbury, Newbury, Newburyport and West Newbury) and Southern New Hampshire (Kingston, East Kingston, Haverhill and Seabrook) for decades. As a full-service mixed animal hospital, our veterinarians serve both small and large animals of all varieties. Our animal clinic is proud of the veterinary services we provide, including routine and emergency medical, surgical, and veterinary dentistry to a wide range of animals, including dogs, cats, horses, cattle, goats, camelids, and other livestock, both individually and with herd health services.

Our veterinary hospital was initially established by Dr. Robert A. Marston and, soon after, Dr. Thomas C. Candee to serve the largely rural community of Amesbury, MA with veterinary services for livestock and companion animals as well as veterinary care for over twenty dairies. While the dairy farms have waned over the years, our care for animals of all shapes and sizes has not, as we continue to provide excellent veterinary services to the ever-evolving community we live and work in.

Together, our current co-owners Dr. Kirk T. Smith and Dr. Jacqueline L. Bastien share large and small animal duties along with Dr Samantha Cobotic, Dr Angela Durkac and Dr. Mary Frelinger. We also have two other small animal exclusive veterinarians: Dr. Linda Hanneman and Dr. Stephanie Andruskevich. Once you’re a part of our pet hospital, you’re family, and our retired veterinarians still stop by from time to time to visit.

Our veterinarians and staff are excited to welcome you to our veterinary family, and we invite you to learn more about us, our mission, and the ways in which we are able to serve you, treating animals both large and small with the utmost kindness and respect.

If you have any questions feel free to call us at (978) 388-3636.

Our Mission

Amesbury Animal Hospital has changed a lot since the days we mostly served dairy farms, and so has the Amesbury, MA community around us, but what hasn’t changed is our veterinarian’s and staff’s compassion and our dedication to our patients, big and small.
