Welcome to Amesbury Animal Hospital

Founded in 1967, Amesbury Animal Hospital has been committed to serving Amesbury, MA, and the surrounding areas of Northeastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire for decades. As a full-service mixed animal hospital, we serve both large and small animals of all varieties. We’re proud of the services we provide, including routine and emergency medical, surgical, and dental veterinary care to a wide range of animals, including dogs, cats, horses, cattle, goats, camelids, and other livestock, both individually and with herd health services.

Amesbury Animal Hospital was initially established by Dr. Robert A. Marston and, soon after, Dr. Thomas C. Candee to serve the largely rural community of Amesbury with 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 care to the ever-evolving community we live and work in.

Our current co-owners Dr. Kirk T. Smith and Dr. Jacqueline L. Bastien share large and small animal duties. We also have two other small animal-only doctors: Dr. Linda Hanneman and Dr. Stephanie Andruskevich. Once you’re a part of Amesbury, you’re family, and our retired doctors still stop by from time to time to visit.

We’re excited to welcome you to our veterinary family, and we invite you to check out our site 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 contact 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.
