Renewing the Healing Spaces
Our most critical and immediate challenge is to renovate and expand our teaching hospitals to better deliver 21st century patient care, the highest level of client service, and up-to-date, quality clinical learning.
Together, we can!
This short video was produced to share the stories of compassion, dedication, and sheer inspiration that are linked to the Henry and Lois Foster Hospital for Small Animals. Since 1985, the Tufts veterinary teaching hospitals have grown to see more animal patients and educate more veterinary students than space presently accommodates for. Though this is not really a story about bricks and mortar – our story is about enhancing the lives of pets and the people who care for them. The Improvements necessary now for the Tufts veterinary teaching hospitals will continue our vision of providing exceptional clinical care that is second to none, and to preserving the human/animal bond for thousands of families every year. We seek your help. "Together, we can. Together, we will!"

Molly’s care with Imaging Services and Cancer Surgery

Your entire staff is amazing. Attending surgeon, Dr. Kudej immediately inspires confidence. Your senior student, Alexis Dubin, has excellent manner and offer a certain calm and compassion that worked well. We left the Foster Hospital feeling like we had brought our dog to the right place.”

During Tia’s stay, I received updates from doctors Fagan and Garneau and was confident Tia was in good hands. I will continue to visit Tufts without hesitation and think highly of the care that we received.
Koda’s care with Zoological Animal Specialization and Soft Tissue Surgery
“Thank you all for helping to save Koda’s life. The closest avian vet I would have taken our bird to normally was not available. After driving to Grafton in a snowstorm, Koda was admitted right away and surgery started within an hour of our arrival. Tufts has incredibly professional and caring staff, as well as providing an amazing response to an emergency situation.”
Mingus’s care for Cardiology Services
“My dog, Mingus has a heart problem which, through care at Tufts, has been managed. I can’t say speak highly enough about Dr. Suzanne Cunningham who deal with him in such a gentle, caring manner. All who I have dealt with at Tufts have been compassionate, caring and very, very warm. I feel lucky that Mingus has been treated at Tufts.”
Rosie’s care with Anesthesia and Emergency Services
“I was so upset and worried about my dog, Rosie, when she had a marrow bone stuck in her lower jaw. Dr. Sauer came out to see me right away and told me that Rosie was going to be fine. The doctor was incredibly reassuring and both time and cost efficient. I am so thankful the Tufts team is there for us.
Pebble’s care with Oncology Services
“We so appreciate the concern, compassion and especially the professional prowess at Tufts. Dr. Lisa Barber spends much time deliberating with us, and went to the tenth degree for Pebble. Everyone in oncology is truly a team, and the doctors and vet techs are the best possible. With great appreciation and fondness to all.”
Bailey’s care with Emergency and Critical Care Services
“Dr. Lynch saved my cat’s life. At the doctor’s recommendation, a feeding tube was put in, after my cat, Bailey, wasn’t eating on his own. The feeding tube is now out, and he is as good as new. Dr. Lynch has consistently followed Bailey’s progress and has been so supportive. I had a wonderful experience”
