Capeway Veterinary Hospital:
Serving the Southcoast Area Since 1951

about us

When Capeway Veterinary Hospital began in 1951, it was a one-doctor practice. Dr. Sherman and Dr. Gaudet purchased the practice in 1983 when the clinic also serviced large animals and zoo animals. In 1996, they decided to focus on small animals only and, with that specialization, the practice continued to grow. Dr. Sherman and Dr. Gaudet sold the practice to VCA in 2023, but they continue to serve our clients and patients alike.

The original facility was 2,200 square feet and is now more than 6,000 square feet, including a large and spacious waiting area and state-of-the-art exam and treatment areas, as well as an excellent surgical suite.

Eight veterinarians and a staff of 27 now serve the hospital, and we have a vision for even more growth.

As part of our commitment to meeting pet needs, we seek to add more specialists in the future and to continue adding to our technological abilities as breakthroughs in veterinary medicine advance.

If we can be of service to you and your pets, please contact our helpful staff and veterinarians.
