Heidi Tapscott, D.V.M.


Dr. Tapscott used her passion for animals to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Sciences from Cornell University then received her Doctorate degree in Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida. She has been in practice for over 25 years, employed at five local veterinary practices and has built a solid reputation as a kind and compassionate animal practitioner with perceptive diagnostic and exceptional surgical skills. Her many clients describe her as an excellent communicator with both pets and pet owners.

During her journey to becoming a highly-experienced veterinarian Dr. Tapscott always wanted to see the best standards of care combined into a veterinary hospital.

Complete Care – providing Housecalls for those in need, Urgent appointments when the unexpected occurs and Special surgeries.

Blending Science Based Medicine with Personalized Service – offering the safest and most Effective Treatments and not just focusing on the bottom line, always considering the Long-term health of the pet and offering Breakthrough medical products.

Preserving the Bond with your Pet – always Finding a way to help your pet, offering Multiple treatment options and helpful Payment options.

Community – caring for Strays, assisting the local Rescue groups, working together with Animal control officers and the MSPCA Nevins Farm & Lowell Humane Society.

She feels blessed to have had the opportunity to form Best Pets Veterinary Hospital with the motto “Skilled care you can trust” a veterinary practice that blends the best standards of care. We have surrounded ourselves with a strong group of people (employees, clients, partners, & vendors) who support our mission. Or success proves that we can help more pets with people that share these values.

Dr. Tapscott is an active member in several professional associations including the AVMA, the Massachussetts VMA, and AAHA. She also volunteers services for several local rescue groups including the MSPCA Nevins Farm and Lowell Humane Society.

Sara Gardiner, D.V.M.


Dr. Gardiner grew up in Massachusetts and first achieved a BS in Psychology at Connecticut College. She studied a wide variety of subjects but eventually realized that she wanted to pursue Veterinary Medicine because the career combined science, creativity and personal interaction in such a unique way. She loves all animals and has a soft spot for older cats. She received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree from University of California in 2002. Since then, she has gained expertise in a wide variety of areas such as urgent care, shelter medicine, ultrasound, imaging, clinical medicine and surgery. She is happy to be back here on the East Coast because there are so many places to explore. She enjoys the beaches and theme parks in the summer, and the occasional snowboarding day in the winter.
