Your Love, Our Passion

OSVS exists because we believe in a different model of care for pet owners. As one of the largest, privately owned veterinary hospitals in the country, we believe in making world-class veterinary care accessible to as many pets as possible. Through passion, innovation and empathy we’ve built a veterinary hospital as it should be. Where the animals come first. We know how much your pet means to you. Your bond is precious and irreplaceable. And when your pet is family, you need to know that you are doing right by them. From us, you will never get any less.

Slide You’re their hero, their best friend, their world. They trust you with their care. We’re here to help you provide that care. We know that pets enrich our lives every day and we’re committed to repaying them by providing them with the longest, happiest, healthiest life possible.

We Built it For You

OSVS was started by a husband and wife veterinary team who wanted to bring exceptional specialty care and 24-hour emergency services to the pets of Rhode Island and their families. We took some of the best ideas from university veterinary schools and created a teaching hospital that helps train the next generation of veterinarians. By recruiting some of the best and brightest doctors and maximizing the efficiency and cost saving that can only occur in a privately owned veterinary hospital, we have created a state of the art hospital that gives each pet the best possible care and best chance for quality and quantity of life. We are united by a simple belief, if we treat every pet as we would treat our own, then we will be successful. This mission has attracted an elite team of over 200 veterinary professionals who work hard every day for a simple reason… we believe in the bond that you share with your pet. We exist to protect it.

What your neighbors say…

I had to bring my cat here over this past weekend due to him eating a yellow lily. My cat had to stay there for a few days and we had a great experience with the doctors, techs, and reception. Everyone was extremely nice. The doctors always called with an update in a timely manner. The techs emailed me every morning with an update and a picture of my cat in hospital. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone. Although expensive (to be expected of ER), the price was not as bad as I had expected for two over nights there. Thank you OSVS staff for taking good care of my cat!

Yesterday I brought my dog in for an urgent ultrasound. Seamless customer service. I had a phone call with Dr. Ann Klocke who took time to explain the procedure, all of the concerns about my dog and answered all of my questions compassionately and patiently. These individuals have the hardest job in the world. They take care of our sick or injured pets. Thankfully, Ocean State offers specialty services so we don’t have to drive to Tufts! Thank you for being so caring to both me and my dog. I’ve been happy every time I’ve been here for both my dog and my cats.

Very happy with the care my cardiac cat has received here at OSVS, both from his wonderful cardiologist Dr. Kane and the ER doctors he was monitored by while being hospitalized after being diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Communication was excellent, both doctors whose care he was under were fantastic, very thorough and kind, and I felt very comfortable leaving Boo there overnight to be stabilized in oxygen. The techs were thoughtful enough to send a picture and an update this morning before we had spoke with his doctor! Can’t recommend OSVS highly enough and their care during this pandemic is amazing. Thank you so much to all who cared for Boo!
