We greatly appreciate the feedback you provide us!  It’s great to hear when you and your pet have had a positive experience, or to learn ways in which we can continue to improve our services.  If you’d like to leave a review through our website you can do so here.  As always, we look forward to hearing how your visit went!


I have just moved my pug and other family members. Millie needed her nails clipped. She gets very stressed out during this routine procedure. The old vet had three people restraining her and they always drew blood. At Bristol the staff became concerned and they held her for few hours while carefully clipping her nails and ensuring her well being. In a follow up visit she seemed happy to be there.


The staff is awesome, the doctor is wonderful. Everyone cares about human as much as the pets!


I had recently put a pet down here , and the staff were more supportive than my friends are… thank you .


The Veterinarians, staff and business manager whom I have all met are wonderful. I have been taking my dogs there (not the same one) since the clinic opened many years ago. They are all caring professionals and you can tell they all love animals. They helped me get through a hard time I was having financially by waiting quite a while for the payment. They also have a separate cat waiting area which is nice for the kitties.


I had to put down our 7 year old guinea pig a few weeks ago. I have never met such caring and compassionate people. They provided information and constant support throughout the process. If we ever have another pocket pet I would certainly take them to Bristol County.


The friendliest staff and the most compassionate professional doctors. They will take the time to explain their procedures. I recommend it to anyone with a pet.


My boxer goes here and they are wonderful, he is a chicken and they know how to handle him very well!


We have been coming here for two years and are very pleased with the service.  Yes, it’s a little more expensive than other vets but it’s worth it.  Dr. Richards is great, she really takes her time with the exams and you don’t feel rushed. Kudos to the front desk as well, as they will always do what they can to get your questions answered in a timely manner.


Dr Ripp and staff are wonderful and caring to my fur babies thank you


I moved to Seekonk 25 years ago and have been bringing my dogs to Bristol County for that same amount of time. My dogs even like going there. You can tell they all love animals by the way they treat your dog. Another good feature is they have separate dog and cat waiting areas. I would never go anywhere else.


After having a terrible first vet visit with my new puppy I did a lot of research to find a new vet. After researching and some great recommendations tonight we visited Bristol County Vet, and I could not be happier. From the moment we walked in the door every single staff member was friendly and took time to say hello to us and our pup. The Doctor and her assistant got on the floor with our pup and played with her, answered all our (crazy new puppy parent) questions and made us and our pup feel very comfortable. I can not say enough great things! I am no longer dreading taking my puppy to the vet…And either is my wallet. Thank you Bristol County staff for a wonderful experience! See you all very soon!


Love them….so compassionate. ..everyone cares about you and your furry companion! !!! Sheeba loves it here …so do I, ,,,best move left our vet of fifteen years…our cat has improved 100%……


BCVH has a wonderful, caring and super professional staff! We have only come twice so far but I already love bringing Molly here!


The best vet hospital I have had the chance to use. They are very professional and friendly. I had a bad experience at providence river animal hospital because they charge an arm and a leg for poor servicend. This vet’s prices are reasonable. I’d pay more knowing my cat’s will be in better hands.


I was given 3 options for vets to take our adopted kitten…when I came across the ratings BCVH, I knew I had to bring our kitten there. We had scheduled an appointment for a Saturday but the Thursday before we called because our kitten looked like her stitching was opening. They were not able to take her but recommended us to a near by E.R. The following day after our E.R. visit, BCVH called to check up on our kitten! Which was amazing because they actually have that true compassion and genuine concern for the animals. When we finally went to the appointment for Saturday, the staff and doctor were all so sweet and welcoming to us. The atmosphere and cleanliness of the building were outstanding, the staff were great and our kitten got so much love from everyone that she left purring like there was no tomorrow. Could not be any happier!!!


I have been going to Bristol County for almost eleven years. Dr. Ripp and Dr. Richards and the entire team have always been caring, professional, and provide exceptional care to our dogs. I always appreciate the quick return phone calls if I have asked a question and the personal care of speaking to either Dr. Ripp or Dr. Richards when bloodwork comes back (even on a Saturday!). Maddie & Jeter are not afraid of the vet because of the wonderful care and love they receive from everyone here. I wouldn’t take my dogs anyplace else!


I have used this vet as far back as I can remember. The staff is extremely kind. They know their job inside and out! I highly recommend anyone seeking a vet should call and try them out for yourself. GREAT!


Everyone who works at Bristol County is so nice. You can tell they hire people who enjoy and love animals. I always appreciate the care that both my dogs receive from the vets at Bristol County. Dr. Ripp and Dr. Richards and their assistants are wonderful. I always feel they listen to me and provide excellent feedback. Thank you to the entire staff at Bristol County!


Great care for your pets from a caring staff and top notch management! Any issues taken to management are taken seriously and quickly resolved, all in addition to skilled doctors and techs.


Dr. Richards puts my furry friend at ease. She understands Sunshine and works with her temperament instead of resorting to restraining her in a towel. It makes the visit much less stressful for both of us!


One can find only the highest level of care and professionalism at BCVH!


All of the folks at this facility have and continue to provide the best care for our much loved feline family members. I never feel rushed when I bring Katie in for her visit. Treatment plans are explained thoroughly as well as the costs. I ALWAYS feel that WE have made the best choice for our pet.


Always a pleasant experience even when my cat is costing me money. That speaks volumes about the care they provide for our furry little family member.


My Katie’s spaying went just fine it is like she never was operated on, already she is back to her normal self. Of course I knew it would be fine as she was in Dr. Richards’ hands. Kim was wonderful in checking me in and out and answering my questions on the phone.


I have the utmost confidence in BCVH. My puppy just got spayed and they set reasonable expectations for me. I was also very pleased in that the cost was less than estimated!


I lived in the area from 1983 to 1997 and used BCVH for all my animals then (they used to do horses), I moved away and came back 10 years later and picked up with them caring for my animals again. I have to say I wish they still did large animals because Amy Hurd is great with horses.


Nice staff, great follow up.


Our dog is a German shepherd and needs to be muzzled for our trip to the vet. The staff is very kind and supportive. I like all the doctors. They handle him very well and know when not to push him too far. I wouldn’t go anywhere else .


Great care for your pets from a caring staff and top notch management! Any issues taken to management are taken seriously and quickly resolved, all in addition to skilled doctors and techs.


The doctors and staff are a pleasure to work with. “Auntie Gillian” always makes Ivan feel extra special and at ease. I know the care that Ivan receives is exceptional whether I’m present with him or not.


Nicky wasn’t feeling well and getting him in to be seen was quick. He’s doing very well now – his care is always excellent.


One can find only the highest level of care and professionalism at BCVH!


My Bella loves Dr. Richards and Gillian! Awesome care as always. BCVH is the best.


We are very pleased with the care that you provide to Brody. Brody is very energetic and the staff never shows frustration with him. We boarded him last week and he was as happy when we picked him up as he was when we dropped him off. The staff took good care of him; and, even succeeded in trimming his nails (he HATES having his nails trimmed) and giving him a bath. Thanks to the staff at BCVH. Brody says “thanks” too.


I have always had a great experience at Bristol County Vet Hospital. I have been coming here for many, many years. My Shih Tzu -Gizmo had his teeth cleaned last week and had to be put under for the procedure. I was very nervous about it, because I didn’t want to lose him. He is a great friend to me. I was very pleased the way everything was handled. I believe the people there are all very kind and sincerely care about the animals they care for daily.
I would recommend this hospital to anyone and everyone!


My dog has always been treated with excellent care and gentleness. I feel that the staff at Bristol County Veterinary Hospital keeps a careful eye on their patients health and welfare which is why I continue to take my dog to that practice.


I had an emergency with my cat Moogey and she was seen right away. Dr. Richards and Gillian, as always, did a great job.


As always wonderful care and service!


I highly recommend BCVH – they offer an wonderful combination of being totally professional, proactive and extremely knowledgeable. They demonstrate a sincere care and respect for all of their patients and they are offer the humans a lot of compassion and understanding too! They promote wellness and that helps. I have brought dogs and cats, feral, rescue and pampered, from puppies to an eighteen year old pug- all experiences were good ones. They are the best!


Always a good experience going to BCVH.


Great caring and friendly staff. Only place I will take my dog!!!!!


I cannot say enough about the care, expertise & love that the staff at BCVH has given all my dogs through the last 25 yrs.!!!! Their compassion for the animals as well as those that love them is 2nd to none. I can’t imagine trusting anyone else with my 4 legged family members!


BCVH’s staff is courteous and friendly. Flex hours and scheduling are a breeze. The vets are professional yet personable. While the cost is higher than other vets, the value is well worth it.


We’ve been coming to you since we moved to Seekonk in 1985. You’ve seen us through a number of dogs and we remain as pleased today as we were way back when. Thanks for your great care.


The staff at BCVH are so compassionate and we are lucky to have them in our community.


Friendly and excellent service as always!


Thank you for a wonderful job and the follow up calls to make sure my doggie was good. =)


I am very pleased with the care my baby Elijah receives at Bristol County Vet Hospital (BCVH). The environment is serene and clean. The staff are very friendly, courteous and genuinely care about the welfare of their patients. The veterinarians are knowledgeable and compassionate. l love the extended work hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I am glad I chose BCVH four years ago when Elijah joined my family.


Great service and nice follow up after my pet had a terrible accident. Thank you


Everything was fine.


I have used Bristol County Veterinary Hospital for over 20 years because they are extremely competent, caring and compassionate.


I love the staff at this vet hospital. My cat is always happy and well cared for when he comes here!


Dr Richards has provided amazing care to our dogs Fenway and Montana. 🙂


Oscar is doing well. I was a little concerned not being able to see the same doctor at every appointment. Every doctor knows everything about what is going on with Oscar and I don’t have to explain everything every time. Very comforting.


Excellent service and care to the animals. Practical solutions to problems. Not pushy about services.


As always the entire staff was awesome.. Not only in saving Buddy’s ;ife but in taking the care and time to treat the owners just as well… They realize that these are not pets but family members too!!!

Everyone there knows Buddy and loves him almost as much as we do I think!!!

We wish you all were moving with us to Orlando in August!!!!

We love you all!!! AND Buddy loves you all more!!!


Was great as always. The staff has excellent personalized service and they make us feel very well. They take care to Vianca since 8 years ago. We are so grateful.


It was the first time we needed to let Stanley board and we were very impressed that you took the time contact our emergency person to get the family involved so he knew he was not abandoned and let them visit him and spend time with him while we were away.


All of the folks at this facility have and continue to provide the best care for our much loved feline family members. I never feel rushed when I bring Katie in for her visit. Treatment plans are explained thoroughly as well as the costs. I ALWAYS feel that WE have made the best choice for our pet.


Always a pleasant experience even when my cat is costing me money. That speaks volumes about the care they provide for our furry little family member.


Always friendly and caring to Maxie. I could not imagine better care from another.


I have 3 Yorkies, 2 of them I have been taking to BCVH for over 8rs and a new puppy that just was spayed . Everybody was fantastic!!!


I absolutely LOVE you guys.


I am very pleased with my experience at Bristol County Veterinary Hospital. Thank you.


As always, the service at BCVH was professional, friendly, and informative. My dog seemed to actually enjoy his visit this time!


Always attentive to the patients and their “people”!


The vets are great and take all the time you need, but it did mean a long wait. We know its pricey, but have been loyal patients for well over a decade. Dr. Hurd is wonderful with our dog. An exceptionally thorough exam and great advice. We’ve all seen other vets, and really like Dr. Ripp as well. The staff makes sure our dog is comfortable.


Everything was great. Jen L. was very helpful explaining everything upon Brody’s discharge.
Thank you, Dr. Kaczmarek, Jen and everyone else who took good care of Brody.


wonderful as always !!!!!!


Zoey had to have surgery and everyone was fantastic. They were very sympathetic to Zoey’s issues related to the vet. Her surgery went great with no complications.


My experience has always been very good with Bristol County Veterinary Hospital, but last week we had to put down my 16yr old kitty. She had declined to a point that there was nothing that could be done and it was time. All of the staff handled the euthanasia with the utmost sensitivity. My 10 yr old wanted to be there and they addressed her concerns and comments as well. They truly made a very difficult experience easier.


Thank you for providing Hans with the best of care after his attack and me with the emotional support I needed. You are the greatest.


Everything went great and Nemo is doing wonderfully.


wow wonderful


As always, the staff was helpful and friendly.


Foxy was treated like “gold” by the staff and Dr. Richards. Information concerning vaccinations and treatments were informative and helpful. As always, it was a great experience for Foxy, who loves all the attention she gets every time she goes to Bristol County Vet. Thanks for everything..


First of all I think BCVH is great otherwise I wouldn’t travel from Bristol RI for treatment. The facility is clean, well maintained and human and animal friendly. The staff is professional but are attentive to the needs and concerns of both owner and pet. The veterinarians are proficient at their profession but are never demeaning, they also are outstanding in keeping the owner well informed and involved with proposed treatment options. Overall BCVH lacks that “clinic” or “take a number” atmosphere and is actually as pleasant of an experience possible.


Everyone is always friendly and very helpful


My husband took our dog, Fagan, and he came home and commented that Fagan was a rock star..everyone knew him! Gillian who is a vet tech there is a good friend of ours and fan of Fagan, so staff there know him. My husband was impressed by how well behaved our dog was but that is because he is comfortable with the staff there.


As always service provided was excellent!!


I’ve never had a bad experience at Bristol County and I’ve been bringing my pets there for 6 years. All the doctors are just wonderful and the technicians are so accomodating and patient with the animals and people.

The animals come first. Whether its accommodatng an emergency situation or recognizing the need for a specialist.

There is no hesitation in recommending the best possible care even if it means sending them to another practice that concentrates on the chronic condition that the animal may have or counseling the guardian when it may be time to say good-bye, which is always the most heart wrenching decision. Its important to have someone who is both knowledgeable and sensitive to the situation in order to make the best choice and I’ve never felt “let down” during those critical times.


The customer service is exceptional. The receptionists are friendly and easy to talk to. Wait time is not too bad. I do have to say they are pretty pricey which is the only down fall.


Very pleased with visit. Loved how our cat was able to roam in examining room and get comfortable in her surroundings. Pleased with care and attention given during diagnosis and follow up call to my home.


The folks at Bristol County are the best. I am so glad I took a friends advice to come here. They always treat my Sadie with the best of care.


Love coming here. Everyone is so nice!


Thank you for taking care of my pets. My dog was nervous and he was treated with kindness and given a chance to relax with some treats and peanut butter. It made the visit less stressful for him and me! Thank you again,


Thank you so much for a great visit! Zeus just loves his vet and he was very happy about all the dog bones he recieved on his visit.


We were treated kindly and patiently and with understanding … given a very antsy cat!


Once again another great experience at the vets.
Friendly, caring staff, clean comfortable surroundings.


I would not take my pet anywhere else. The level of care is above and beyond excellence!!!!


very professional and loving to your precious pet; seemed pricey, but who’s healthcare isn’t these days!


I have so enjoyed our visits to the Bristol County Veterinary Hospital. The staff and Doctors are so kind and caring of the animals and the owners. They were recommended to me and I would do the same in a minute.


Everyone is very friendly & knowledgeable. Highly recommend.


Excellent care!!!!


Always received with caring attention.


I went to BCVH after my regular vet, Dr Mark Povar, retired.The prices are somewhat higher, but the care Charlie got from Dr K was outstanding.


Dr. Kaczmarek was great with Callie, who tends to be nervous when the “white coat” appears in the room. Everyone, techs and assistants, were very nice!


Each and every time I visit Bristol County Vet Hosp. myself and my dogs are treated with excellent care. Besides the excellent care we receive they make my dogs feel so very special. Each and every time we arrive they get very excited and want tto run right in.

Also, anytime I call for advise or information everyone in the front is very helpful no matter how busy they are and answer all my questions or forward them to the doctor who in turn always returns my call the same day.


My cat is always well cared for here.


The care that you show your patients is above and beyond the call of a vet. You not only treat your patients with the utmost care, but their owners too. I would highly recommend your clinic to all my friends with animals.


Fantastic staff! They are great with the pets and owners!


We saw a doctor I hadn’t seen before, Dr. Kazian, much longer name but hopfully you know who she is. Well she was very pleasant and informative.


Nice visit with friendly staff.


It is like coming home everytime I come here. I am always treated as well as my dogs like family. You have a wonderful, pleasant staff. who obviously love animals.


Always happy with BCVH. They take the time with your family member to relax and assure them. The tender affection you would hope anyone would bestow on your pet. The high compliments to the animal isn’t too bad either. I felt like a proud parent of my cat. I have been a client for about 6 yrs and cannot think of any time I have been disappointed.


My experience with your staff was excellent, everyone was very caring and professional. My dog was abused and the staff was very gentle with him.
I am very happy with Bristol County Vet. Hospital


Our first visit and the experience couldn’t have been better..friendly staff, clean office, short waiting time and a very thorough exam and visit! First vet I have used that showed costs upfront and for next visit!


My dog was sick in December and I cannot say enough about the care that was given to Sadie. Everyone that was working were so helpful and calming.


We love Dr. Ripp.


My cat receives excellent care and BCVH. I will trust her health to anyone else.


You’ve always done right by my pets, and this time was no exception.Thanks for making it possible to examine both the cat & dog at the same time, it seems to keep them both calmer and is a lot more convenient.


My appointment with George went well from start to finish. The receptionists were great & Dr. K. Was kind, caring, and patient with us. She answered all of my questions and provided good advice for diet and things that would help my cat do well in his life.


The care and attention to detail during my dog, Cracker’s, annual checkup was exemplary. The doctor and her assistant handled Cracker gently and took the time to acquaint themselves with Cracker before proceeding with the exam.


As always Murray was greeted by staff and made to feel like the most important dog in the state. Love BCVH


We were very please with our visit to Bristol County Veterinary Hospital. Staff was warm and really loving toward our Chihuahua pup. My dog has an appointment to be spayed next week. I feel confident that she will be in great care.
In addition, unlike our former veterinary office, Bristol County’s costs are VERY reasonable.


Every visit everyone is so helpful and friendly.


What a great place for your pet to go to !! The Staff and Doctors are friendly and ready for any challenges !!!


As always, every aspect of the experience was friendly, knowledgable and thoroughly professional.


Dr. Ripp is very gentle, thorough, and professional. I won’t bring my pet anywhere else!


I love this office. The are very accommodating and helpful. I am very appreciative of the extra time and attention that Dr. Richards and staff take to work with my ornery cat. They are wonderful!


Met with Jessica. She took Bentley, did the test, and was back to us very quickly and explained we get the results in 24 hrs. She was friendly and efficient. We were in and out in a short time which we appreciated.


I love the way the techs and Dr.s at Bristol County treat me and my favorite four-legged friend with love and respect. I am confident in their recommendations and in their integrity. I wholeheartedly trust their judgement and advice.


A very good experience. Highly recommend.

le
I am always pleased with the excellent service I get from the professionals at Bristol County Veterinary Hospital. They always give my dog the highest level of care and I never worry when I leave him for boarding. I would certainly recommend this hospital to anyone looking for a new veterinarian.


Always very helpfull and very attentive. Recently I left my puppy for the week in the care of the BCVH staff, this was the first time leaving her. They reassured me of the safe and personable enviroment she would recieve. Upon picking her up you could clearly see she was very happy. Thanks


Always available when either of my two dogs require attention.
Thank you


Always good helpful service.


Great vets


I love this hospital. Would not take my Dexter anywhere else!!!! Everyone has treated me like family.I have been going here for years.


Staff and Drs. are always friendly, professional and accommodating!


As usual, I had a great experience. I had to rush Ivan in for an emergency and he was immediately taken in for evaluation. The only hiccup in the process was his transfer or care. MassRI was not expecting my arrival, although I was told that they were informed. Luckily I was given a copy of Ivan’s records to inform them of his condition/needs.


Our first visit with our new bundle of joy, Kobe went very well. We received alot of important information on how to care for him as well as train him.
The doctor spent a good amount of time with us and answered all of our questions.
It means alot to us, expecially after recently losing our 3 year old Shihpoo, “Oreo”. She is missed greatly! You are all a great team and we Thank You for all the support you’ve given during this difficult time. We know in our hearts that everyone did the best they could do for her. We appreciate everything!


Roxy does not like going to the Vet’s, because she does not like riding in the car, but she loves all of the staff who give her lots of attention and good care.


always compassionate…understanding..and caring whenever I call or stop by……you go over and above for your four legged AND two legged clients!


Had an excellent experience.everyone from the ladies at the desk to the doctor and assistants, were very kind and helpful.I felt our dog was in good hands during her visits.


Everyone is always friendly and professional.

I,ve known dr. over 20 years I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Everyone is professional and polite. Keep up the good work!!!!


Very caring. Very friendly.


Everything was perfect, as always. So glad we have a new golden puppy and have a great veterinary hospital to take him to.


Murray loves going to the vets. Everyone makes such a big deal out of him. He loves the attention.


My cat Benny and I entered into a Sparkling Clean and Organized office. Laurel and Julie were there to help us. They were both lovely. The Doctor was quite Patient with my 12 year old Senior Citizen.. She answered all my questions , and I feel confident that she understood all our problems. Thanks to the Entire Staff for the Excellent Care.


always excellent care for our dog, all questions answered and explained.


Everyone greeted Scooter and made him feel special I know he was happy his little tail waged when they gave him cookies, the care that was shown from Dr.Richards and check up was very thoroughly & professionally done !


Very friendly staff. Helpful in answering all my questions. Took personal care to help my dog feel safe and comfortable.


Always great and treats Wishbone like a king! Thank you!


Thank you for your wonderful care of Annabelle and Misty and for the specific advice about their food.
To our suprise they were pretty calm – you definitley know cats!


Every contact I have with Bristol County Vet is pleasant and productive. The team is always helpful and very friendly!


It is always a good experience and I have been going for a least 18 years!!!!!


I went to pick up food. Laurel is always so nice.


Excellent service.


I’m very happy with the care Ginger receives at Bristol County . She is healthy and always well cared for when she goes to the vet.


As always, everything and everyone was awesome!


Excellent as always 🙂


My dog was treated professionally & with the utmost care as always!


BCVH has been taking care of my dogs for almost 8 yrs and I wouldn’t trust my pets to anyone else. They are so caring.


I have no desire to look elsewhere for care for my pets. BCVH is the best.


We had a wonderful experience! The doctors, technicians, and staff truly care for all that walk into the clinic. They understand the place a pet holds in a person’s or family’s world.


My cat was gaining too much weight . When I took my cat for his annual check up, I asked the vet for advice. She gave me several ideas. With her support I am helping kitty to trim down.


Very pleased.Highly recommend.


Heather is always a pleasure to deal with; very professional and a great personalIty. She is an asset to BCVH!


My experience with Bristol County is always very personal as if I am the only one there. You are all terrific and I would definately recommend you to a friend or colleague. Thank you for loving my babies as much as I do.


What a wonderful group of individuals! Unfortunately this was not the first time I had to put a precious pet to sleep, yet this was the first time that I received the compassion and understanding needed to make such a horrible decision. Furthermore, BCVH sent a Sympathy card with all the staffs’ signatures along with a BEAUTIFUL poem about how one’s pet reaches a place where its pains are no more and where it awaits its owner once again. How amazing! Personalized care! Personalized attention to the pet and the owner! Wonderful!


I appreciate the excellent pet health care provided at Bristol County Veterinary Hospital (BCVH). The staff are very professional, knowledgeable, supportive, respectful and friendly.
Being a health care professional myself, I recognize and value excellent service.
In my almost 4 years association with BCVH, I have referred several friends to them, and I will continue to do so.
It is a pet-centered medical home!


My experience with the Doctors and staff at BCVH was excellent as usual. Dr. Ripp was not available so Dr. Barry was filling in for her on the day of Giorgi’s appointment. This was both a suprise and a great pleasure. Dr. Barry was my previous cat, Sophey’s first Dr. at BCVH and she left me and my cat with a feeling of trust and comfort knowing that my beloved animals were in the care of BCVH. Seventeen yrs. later I had the same experience! My new kitty, Giorgi, was so calm in the exam room as a result of the care from both the Doctor and the technician. Everyone takes the time to explain and make sure you understand the health of their patient. I look forward to continuing my relationship with BCVH.


I recently and unexpectedly had to put my sweet dog to sleep. It was very sudden (which in part I am grateful that it wasn’t a drawn out process of pain and suffering for my Peanut). Dr. K was so wonderful. She was wonderfully kind and compassionate during a very difficult time. I really felt as though she could relate to my sadness and that was most helpful during this very difficult time. Dr. K’s diagnosis and follow-up care was right on target, and she provided the care necessary to make my sweet Peanut as comfortable as possible. As well, Jo the Vet Tech was wonderfully kind, compassionate and thoughtful on the final day. I don’t know if I could have gotten through that final day without Dr. K and Jo – so thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know my decision was right despite the difficulty in making it – Dr. K made that process easier for me. What a wonderful team of Doctors and Technicians this Veterinary Hospital has and offers. The best yet!
Thank you.


As a former veterinary technician, I am particular about the care and treatment of my animals, but I was so pleased with Dr. Kaczmarek and the vet tech’s approach during my dog Gila’s appointment. Dr. Kaczmarek is very knowledgeable and friendly with her clients, the human client too. I noticed the small things they did to accomodate my squiggly dog during a blood draw, such as turning the dog so she could face me. Those small things mean a lot to a client. I would highly recommend Bristol County Vets!


Great experience. They did a great job taking care of our dog. Little bit of a wait for follow-up visit due to busy tech but not a big deal.


AS ALWAYS, THE CARE MY PETS RECEIVE AT BRISTOL COUNTY VET WAS EXCEPTIONAL. MY APPOINMENT WAS ON TIME AND THE STAFF REALLY SHOW HOW MUCH THEY CARE FOR MY PET.


I feel the team at Bristol County vet is very confindent and knowledgeable in the care they provide animals. They brought 7 of the most beautiful pups into this world without having to do surgery, when momma dog couldn’t pass the pups. 3 days later they removed dew claws and docked all 7 tails without any complications. I have recommended to all of the puppies new owners to continue taking the puppies to Bristol County Vet.


Fabulous vet hospital! I always know my cat is in good hands. The staff is friendly and really care about people and their pets.


Always a good experience for my pets. The staff and doc ‘s are very friendly and gentle with the animals and the women at the front desk are always cheerful and courteous.


Prompt and ready when I got there!


Great hospital, great staff, great vets!


You guys were great, as usual. The new Vet, Dr. Katherine Kaczmarek was wonderful, really hands on and concise in her questioning. Then there is the Amazing Jill. Yes, she did it again. Jan was out of control with fear and Jill stepped in and cut all of her nails in a minute and not one drop of blood. Of course check-out is as simple as check-in, meds and lab stuff ready to go.


My pet was well cared for in my absence. I was relieved traveling, knowing that she was safe.


Champ loves BCVH! He came in for blood work & you’d thnk it was the most exciting event ever! The staff is friendly & efficient – Champ thinks our visits are too quick: he’d like to stay & make more doggie friends.
Thanks to all of your help, he’s doing wonderfully!


my pets have recieved good care in my 15+ yrs using them. 2 of my 3 pets have passed on and they valued my decision for palative care toward the end of their wonderfully long lives, instead of pushing for treatments that wouldn’t have given them quality of life.


5 stars!


We started bringing our rescued pets to BCVH when they were in Briarwood Plaza. I have to say that they are a very caring group of professionals. Staff and Dr’s have come and gone but I find that they truly care about the animals and want to be pro-active in their health care. The visits can be costly especially when you have more than 1 or 2 pets (as we do) and sometimes the appointments are running behind. I’d like to think that is because they are spending the necessary time with the “patient” and not rushing you out. We’ve had to make some difficult decisions over the years and most recently a couple of weeks ago – the BCVH staff has been very compassionate and understanding. I believe they truly love each and every pet that walks through the door!


I am always impressed at how well the care is a BCVH. Murray seems to ove going there and everyone treats him like he is the only patient they have. I love that. Because I think he and Magoo are the best dogs in the world. Thanks for all the great care you give my pets. Carol


As always, the staff and Dr. A. Richards were caring and attentive. Our dog Andy actually enjoys going to the vet, which is pretty remarkable! There aren’t too many vets that will get down on the floor with your dog and let him lick their face!


We love Bristol County Vet Hospital.
Vianca had her annual exam and the experience was GREAT as ever.
Thanks to all of you.


Very knowledgeable and caring employees


BCV is an extremely friendly environment whose doctors, techs, and front desk staff all clearly love what they do. I have had nothing but great care for all my animals at BCV.


Anyone who’s an avid animal lover will agree, it’s imperative to find a veterinary hospital with knowledgable doctors and a caring staff. At BCVH you will indeed find a diverse and caring staff who will be there for you while taking care of your pet’s routine needs or meeting your pets needs while their health isn’t as stable. I also believe that taking care of animals and their humans requires a great deal of patience. Thank you BCVH for your ongoing compassion and patience. I have placed one of my most beloved beings in your care, and I’m confident that you will continue to provide the best care possible for him because you know how important he is to me and you’re committed to providing quality health care to all the animals you see in your practice.


Considerate and caring pet care!


I stopped in to weigh Molly and purchase some chews. I was met with courtesy and friendliness. It was a good visit.


Great friendly, caring staff. My dog loves going there!
I have recommended friends and they have been very impressed also.


Great people and service as usual.


As always excellent care by a knowledgeable caring staff.


Very happy with the doctor and staff.


Everyone was so nice which was a huge help for a difficult day.
Thank you!


Amazing Staff! Incredible Doctors!!! They have just the right touch for my crazy special kitty!


Dr. Hurd truly cares about her patients. I completely trust her with the health of my beloved cats.


Had a very nice experience and were reassured we were doing things right in raising our new puppy and given additional information and tips. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful.


Everyone is extremely friendly and attentive to both the patients and their owners needs… AND will take the time to answer any and all questions and options in a language we regular humans can understand. From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave.


Every time I go to Bristol County Veterinary Hospital I am treated with extreme respect and professionalism. I never hesitate to stop in or contact the staff with any questions or concerns I may have. I know that the staff treats my pets, like they were their own. They give them the best care possible. What more could you ask for?


Dr Richards was engaging and caring of Zach and myself.
The staff is always polite and professional and this day was no different.


Everyone at Bristol County is always very helpful and caring.


I was in and out quickly and it didn’t even cost me and arm and a leg this time around! Moogey is doin well also.


My almost 11 year old lab hurt her hind leg over the past weekend. We were seen on Monday in spite of BCVH having a very busy day. The care and compassion shown to our dog and to me was terrific from the women at the desk to the assistant and the vet. She is on pain meds and they will follow up with us in a few days. Thank you for everything.


Excellent service for my dog. Very expert and compassionate professionals.


always great service & caring employees & doctors!


This staff is wonderful! They obviously love animals, and they are great with humans as well…having a sick pet is extremely stressful, and they take the time to be understanding and supportive.


I have been coming here for over 13 years- Bristol County Vet Hospital offers a great mix of great care and professionalism along with a true understanding of true concern and compassion for our furry friends.


Wonderful practice, always friendly and professional, appointments run on time. Superb level of care, and responsive when unexpected things come up..facility is top of the line and super clean. Lots of follow up when pet had health problem. A+++


Roxy was in to have her nails trimmed and everyone was happy to meet her again and she loves meeting all of the staff.
It is always a pleasant visit to BCVH.


As always the doctors and staff were very courteous and professional.


I have been going to BCVH for at least 10 years now. Everyone there is very nice and professional. I remember the very first time i went there and Dr. Hurd came out to the waiting room and sat on the floor and gave my dog a hug, How can you go wrong with such warm and caring staff. I have told everyone that i go there and that they can’t go wrong by going there!


I am very happy with the outcome of Bella’s 2 surgeries performed by Dr Ripp. Bella recovered very well and is doing great. I cannot say enough about the wonderful staff and doctors at BCVH (esp Dr Richards; Bella’s favorite!) Your are all awesome! My post surgery visit was quick and easy. Kris is terrific and took good care in removing Bella’s stitches and told me everything looks and healed very well. Thank you so much!


The staff are caring and understanding of the diverse population of pets!


We always receive the best care at Bristol County Vet Hospital. From the receptionest when we first walk in all through the visit. I can’t think of another place that I would go to and receive the quality of care that we get at your hospital.


I have never met such a caring staff from the front office to the doctors and technicians. Everyone cares so much about you and your pet, and the medical care is top notch. Each person goes above and beyond. I feel very secure knowing my pets are getting the best care possible. I’ll definately tell all my friends!


We love Bristol Co. Vet. The staff is professional, knowledgeable & friendly. The doctors are great. They have literally saved 2 of my dogs lives. Bentley recently had knee surgery by a doctor that we were referred to by BCV. He even met us at their office. Bentley is doing great. Casper just received his annual visit and had a slight reaction to his vaccines. They let me bring him back in immediately and were very patient after they checked him telling me he was fine. Just a little emotionally overwhelmed. I will be going to BCV as long as I have pets.

I have just moved my pug and other family members. Millie needed her nails clipped. She gets very stressed out during this routine procedure. The old vet had three people restraining her and they always drew blood. At Bristol the staff became concerned and they held her for few hours while carefully clipping her nails and ensuring her well being. In a follow up visit she seemed happy to be there.

I have been going to Bristol County for almost eleven years. Dr. Ripp and Dr. Richards and the entire team have always been caring, professional, and provide exceptional care to our dogs. I always appreciate the quick return phone calls if I have asked a question and the personal care of speaking to either Dr. Ripp or Dr. Richards when bloodwork comes back (even on a Saturday!). Maddie & Jeter are not afraid of the vet because of the wonderful care and love they receive from everyone here. I wouldn’t take my dogs anyplace else!


I have used this vet as far back as I can remember. The staff is extremely kind. They know their job inside and out! I highly recommend anyone seeking a vet should call and try them out for yourself. GREAT!


Everyone who works at Bristol County is so nice. You can tell they hire people who enjoy and love animals. I always appreciate the care that both my dogs receive from the vets at Bristol County. Dr. Ripp and Dr. Richards and their assistants are wonderful. I always feel they listen to me and provide excellent feedback. Thank you to the entire staff at Bristol County!


Great care for your pets from a caring staff and top notch management! Any issues taken to management are taken seriously and quickly resolved, all in addition to skilled doctors and techs.


Dr. Richards puts my furry friend at ease. She understands Sunshine and works with her temperament instead of resorting to restraining her in a towel. It makes the visit much less stressful for both of us!


One can find only the highest level of care and professionalism at BCVH!


All of the folks at this facility have and continue to provide the best care for our much loved feline family members. I never feel rushed when I bring Katie in for her visit. Treatment plans are explained thoroughly as well as the costs. I ALWAYS feel that WE have made the best choice for our pet.


Always a pleasant experience even when my cat is costing me money. That speaks volumes about the care they provide for our furry little family member.
