We are excited to introduce Trupanion Express Pay!

Trupanion Medical Insurance can pay your veterinary bill in minutes

When your pet gets ill or injured, we want you to be able to focus on the health and well-being of your pet. Medical insurance can help you deal with unexpected veterinary expenses and provide your pet with the best medical care. Trupanion can cover a significant portion of your veterinary bill (up to 90% of eligible costs*) in minutes. With a Trupanion policy, our clients often pay only their part of the bill at checkout and leave the hospital without waiting for claim approvals and reimbursements. You can learn more about Trupanion coverage and direct payments at Trupanion.com.

To Our Valued Pet Owners,

During these challenging times we want you to know we are still here for you and your pets!  Each day presents us with new challenges and our dedicated team continues to rise and meet those challenges.

In accordance with Governor Baker's latest guidelines we are considered an essential service provider.  With safety a priority, we've made some changes to protect our clients, patients and staff.  At this time, we are unable to allow anyone other than staff in the building.

For established clients with non life threatening cases you have the option of a telemedicine visit with a Doctor.  We will arrange a time that the Doctor can give you a call.  We welcome you to email videos or pictures that can assist the Doctor with a diagnosis.  If the condition is manageable via phone a fee will apply.  If medication is necessary you will be able to pickup with "curbside" service.  Simply pay over the phone and a staff member will bring it out to you.

For conditions that require a hands on approach, vaccines or diagnostics, we are offering "curbside" visits.  Upon arrival, we ask that you call the hospital, speak with a receptionist and let us know you're here.  While you remain in your vehicle, a technician will come out and take a detailed history and then they will bring your pet in for their visit.  Once the Doctor has examined your pet, they will call and discuss their findings.  A technician will return your pet along with any medications needed and a detailed invoice which can be paid over the phone. 

We also have amended our hours and will be closing at 5pm Monday-Friday instead of 6pm during this time.

For the duration of the State of Emergency we have decided to suspend several non-essential services:

ELECTIVE SURGERIES-Under advisement of the AVMA, we are postponing non-emergency surgeries such as Neuters, Spays and Routine Dental cleanings.

BOARDING-Will will not be taking reservations until the State of Emergency and travel limits have been lifted.

NAIL TRIMS & GROOMING-We feel it adds an unnecessary risk to our staff with the exception of ingrown nails, broken/torn nails and hygiene clips.

Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated. We are operating with a reduced staff but are still hustling to give you the best possible service! We are all in this together and better days are ahead. Stay healthy!

  • "Driftway has both immaculate facilities and a welcoming and knowledgeable staff. Throughout my eighteen year experience with the hospital, my pets and I have always been treated with respect, compassion, and professionalism. The staff has a genuine concern for the well-being of each pet as well as for the satisfaction of the pet owner... Their camaraderie is endearing and their personal, sincere, and skillful approach makes the "going to the vet" experience more like being with "family"."
