About Us

Our History

All Creatures Veterinary Hospital began in 1991 as Dr. Elizabeth Bradt’s small veterinary house call practice, and evolved over the course of twelve years into a part of the family for over three thousand households throughout the North Shore. In 2003 she put down roots on the banks of the North River to provide a home for the practice and state of the art medical facility for our patients. All Creatures Veterinary Hospital has been AAHA accredited since 2009, allowing us to stay on the leading edge of exceptional veterinary medicine, and provide the quality and range of services you and your pet deserve.

Mission and Vision

All Creatures Veterinary Hospital (ACVH) is a center where people and their pets visit regularly to achieve a healthy, fulfilling life together. ACVH provides a caring and educational environment where people can learn about maximizing the health and well being of their pets, and protect the health of their entire family.

Maximum wellness is achieved through client education and regular preventative health care including physical examinations, wellness lab work and systematic dental care. Diets and vaccinations are tailored to individual pet health requirements and lifestyle.

Clients are encouraged to maximize their pets’ potential for a long and healthy life. They are supported in their quest to improve the health of their pets, and the lives they share together. We support our clients by listening to their concerns, adapting health care to the needs of their particular situation, and providing education that is specific to their pet and their family.

ACVH is a center where employees may realize their potential in the animal care field and in their own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual lives. We realize that we are all works in progress and support each other in our personal endeavors.

Healing pets that are injured or ill through the use of medicine and surgery is our passion, and is readily available by our knowledgeable and friendly doctors and staff. As an AAHA accredited hospital, we continuously hold ourselves to the highest standards. At ACVH, we are constantly seeking new paths to improve our knowledge of veterinary medicine as well as our delivery of excellent customer service to our patients.
