Update: Becker College Veterinary Clinic
Until further notice, the Becker College Veterinary Clinic will be closed to the public to keep our community safe and healthy, and maintain a low-risk environment. Please note that we will have staff on hand to retrieve and respond to messages from email and voicemail twice daily. We will also be approving necessary prescriptions through online pharmacies at this time. If you currently have an appointment scheduled, someone will be in touch to cancel/reschedule. If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, please contact the Tufts University Emergency Department at 508.839.5395. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
