Get to Know Our Veterinary Team
Are you looking for a veterinarian where you and your pet can feel confident you are getting the best experience possible? Are you sick of feeling like just another number in a corporate-run veterinary hospital? Do you dread the thought of taking your pet somewhere for needed care? Or worse, do you skip visits because you just don’t want to go through that again? If you said yes to any of these, maybe you should give Whole Pet Veterinary Center a try.
Meet Our Veterinary Team
At Whole Pet Veterinary Center, we work as a team with owners and families to create a health care plan that fits each individual patient’s needs. We are small – on purpose – so that we can maintain a closeness with our clients that benefits all. The better we know you and your pet, the better we can understand what you mean by “I don’t know, Doc, Sadie just isn’t herself.” We take the time to listen and explain with longer appointments and time with the doctor. And it’s not just as a Concierge service for clients who pay more. We do this for every client. Because it’s who we are, and how we envision the best care for your family pet.

Dr. Vickrey and her family have lived in Acton since 2010. Their current animal collection includes 3 cats, 4 goats, 9 chickens, a flock of guinea fowl, and a peacock.
