~~My dog Story and I had an excellent experience that started with an exploratory phone call to East Boston Animal Hospital during an urgent situation that set the overall tone for an exceptional and super efficient visit. We were able to get a very last minute rabies shot and exam. Dr. Sawyers was super accommodating, knowledgable, friendly and fit us in when we were in a jam!
