About Us

Care, Compassion, and Commitment. It’s who were are.


Helping Pets Live Longer, Happier, and Healthier Lives

At West Concord Animal Clinic, our mission is to nurture the human-animal bond through exceptional and compassionate care. We understand pets’ important role in our daily lives and the joy they bring into our homes. The best pet care takes a team of dedicated owners and compassionate veterinary health care providers. Our commitment to high-quality veterinary care in a warm and welcoming environment allows us to provide pets with health and happiness, enabling them to enrich the lives of those they love. Every one of us at West Concord Animal Clinic is privileged to do what we love each and every day.

The owners, Dr. Jennifer Schickler and Dr. Catherine Cole are deeply rooted in the local community. They are the current co-owners of Arlington Animal Clinic and have been practicing together since 2006, sharing over three decades of experience. Dr. Schickler lives in Concord and has three children, one still in attendance at Concord-Carlisle Regional High School. She is an avid runner who enjoys logging miles through our beautiful town and trails, makes stained glass, and enjoys crossword puzzles. Dr. Cole lives next door in Carlisle with two daughters attending Carlisle Public School. Her hobbies include knitting, gardening, and kayaking with her family along our local rivers. They both feel incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to practice veterinary medicine on their home turf and treat the beloved pets of all their friends and neighbors.

Providing Passionate,
Compassionate Care

We are passionate about providing you and your pet with the best of care, all the while making sure that you both feel like you’re part of our clinic family. We understand how important pets are because each and every one of us is a pet parent, too, and we promise to care for your pet as one of our own.
