Animal Medical Center of the Upper Valley is a full service Veterinary Hospital & Boarding/Daycare facility created in July 2019, from the merging of owner Dr. Charlie Hutchinson's two businesses : Upper Valley Veterinary Services and The Dog House at Etna Road. 

Upper Valley Veterinary Services and it's founder Dr. Stewart Ketcham set the standard of "Caring with kindness for pets and their people" over 35 years ago, and in 2015 when Dr. Ketcham retired, Dr. Hutchinson wanted to continue on with that motto, all our clients and patients will be treated with kindness and compassion. 

The Dog House was founded in 2017 with the idea of creating the perfect home away from home for your beloved pets! Offering both short and long term boarding for both dogs and cats, daycare/dayboard options as well as grooming, our caring and attentive kennel staff ensure your pets are comfortable and happy during their stay.

Now the Animal Medical Center of the Upper Valley is your one-stop-shop for all your pet’s vet care, boarding and grooming services! Feel free to give us a call or stop by to set up your furry friend’s first appointment!
