The Working Dog Project is a collaborative effort of the Theriogenology Foundation and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. It is the most ambitious canine behavioral genetics study ever conceived and is designed to identify the genetic basis for working ability in dogs by comparing the DNA of thousands of dogs through the use of whole genome sequencing.

We breed purebred dogs and cats to preserve a closed, and therefore endangered, gene pool. With each planned breeding of our purebred/purpose-bred dog or cherished feline, we aim to produce a generation of healthier offspring. Whether you need pre-breeding health clearances for both your stud dog and brood bitch, semen cryopreservation, advanced insemination procedures, high risk pregnancy monitoring or DNA testing of neonates, we help you breed for success.

Please review our Coronavirus Policy from 3/18/20
1. If you are healthy, have no prior contact with a COVID positive individual and have not recently returned from a foreign country in the past 14 days, please schedule your appointment as usual, via phone or email. To maintain our priorities of safety and cleanliness, we will:
i. Limit our daily appointment schedule to accommodate the time needed for a thorough cleaning/wipe down of our examination rooms after each visit.
2. When you visit, please stay in your car and call us so we can connect you with your veterinarian. If you don’t have cell service please knock on the door and we will send someone out. Your veterinarian will take a complete medical history from you over the phone & discuss your concerns and prospective treatment plan. Please bring your dog/cat to the side door where you will be greeted by a veterinary technician who will transfer your pet to the examination room. The attending veterinarian will call you when the exam is complete to discuss their findings and give you a visit summary. You will then be transferred to the receptionist where payment can be made over the phone from your car. In the case of cash/check payment, the receptionist will meet you when the technician returns your pet to you with all necessary medications.
3. We are trying to prioritize our services to those with the most critical needs first. Please hold your nail trims, huff & buffs and elective procedures for the next 3 - 4 weeks.
4. Curbside Delivery and Pick up
We are able to deliver medications and food directly to your car curb side. Call the office @ 508-875-7086 so that we can have your order ready in advance, and again when you are in the parking area.If your pet is on a Hills and/or Purina diet, they do offer a home delivery service. If you are interested in this please call our receptionist to sign you up.
5. Telemedicine Services:
We will be temporarily offering telemedicine services to clients who have been seen with their pets in the last 6 months. Telemedicine offers a chance for you to consult with one of our veterinarians as if you were here in person.

- Ongoing/chronic case management
- Mild Symptoms such as sneezing, limping, skin rechecks etc.
- Hospice Care
- Behavioral changes

Appointments will be scheduled and conducted over the phone and you will be billed accordingly. Telemedicine phone consults may require - in person follow up, which will be communicated based on tele-examination findings.
