We strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn’t feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.
John Kelley, DVM
Dr. John Kelley received his veterinary degree from Louisiana State University. He received his master’s degree shortly after in Reproductive Physiology.
He opened Duck Creek Animal Clinic in Wellfleet in the late 1980’s. In the early 1990’s he purchased Eastham Veterinary Hospital, Stony Hill Animal Clinic and Herring Cove Animal Clinic. For over 20 years, he has owned and operated these four locations known as Lower Cape Veterinary Services, Inc.
He is a member of the MVMA, AVMA, AAHA and serves on the board of WildCare. He has through the years worked very closely with the Animal Rescue League in Brewster, WildCare in Eastham, CASAS in Provincetown and the Vieques Humane Society. He has spent the last 8 years extensively involved in owning, developing and managing Cape Animal Referral and Emergency Center in S Dennis, an emergency and specialty hospital for all patients on Cape Cod. He continues to work closely with them today.
Dr. Kelley has been giving back to his community for many years. One of his greatest interests is bike riding. He usually rides for different causes in at least four or more rides every year. He has ridden for over 18 years in the Pan Mass Challenge. Dr. Kelley has risen over $100,000 riding for his favorite fundraisers. Also outside of work, John loves to boat and fish.
Although today there are new owners of Lower Cape Veterinary Services, Dr. Kelley looks forward to serving and helping his patients and clients for many years to come.
Eric Stone, DVM
Eric Stone, DVM received his veterinary degree from Tufts Cumming School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. His main interest is General Medicine.
Dr. Stone likes to educate people on what to expect throughout the medical care process with their pets, give them what they want and help them by giving them the best medicine with the best results. He is a member of the AVMA.
Outside of work he enjoys any activity that takes him outside. He loves running, biking, and hiking to name a few.
He resides in Brewster with his dog: a Border Collie named Fizz.

Jamie Driscoll, DVM
Dr. Driscoll developed her love of animals at an early age growing up on a dairy farm in Connecticut. This early exposure to all types of animals led to an interest in equestrian sports, a lifelong love of riding, and close relationships with all creatures great and small.
She received her BA from Boston University and her Doctorate from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation she practiced in Upstate New York, eventually returning to Massachusetts, first at the Angell Memorial Hospital on Nantucket Island, then at the Eastham Veterinary Hospital.

Kelly Preston, DVM
Dr. Kelly Preston grew up in a small town in Massachusetts. She graduated from Williams College with a degree in Biology in 1996, then from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001 (and has the student loans to prove it!).
Kelly considers herself an “old school” general practitioner. She loves meeting pets as puppies or kittens and helping to care for them throughout their lives. The most rewarding part of her job is knowing that by treating and caring for the pets, she is doing the same with their owners.
Outside of work, Kelly is working on becoming a farmer. After attending Bee School through the Barnstable county Beekeeper’s Association last winter, she built and manages 2 honeybee hives in her yard. She also now owns Buff Orpington chickens and is enjoying farm fresh eggs in the addition to the honey from the bees. Her vegetable garden thrived this past summer as well. She also loves to take her boat out during the summer. Kelly enjoys hanging out with her 2 Puerto Rican mutts, and is constantly greatly entertained by her growing menagerie of small parrots that have the run of the house when she is home. Luckily for her, her dogs love the parrots and chickens (or at least ignores them).
She belongs to the Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association.
Sadie Hutchings, DVM
Sadie Hutchings, DVM did her undergraduate work at UMASS Amherst Commonwealth College, (Summa Cum Laude) in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science. She received her veterinary degree from Tufts Cumming School of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. Dr. Hutchings feels the most rewarding part of her job is improving the lives of senior animals. Her interests include: geriatric care, nutrition, integrative medicine and feline medicine.
One of her favorite parts of veterinary medicine is the continual education. She loves learning, sharing her knowledge and answering questions. She learns from every patient as she strives to develop the best treatment plan for each individually, which is constantly expanding in the ever growing field of veterinary medicine. She is a member of the AVMA, MVMA, American Association of Feline Practitioners, and the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association. She is a member of the Board of Directors and volunteers for the Carrie A Seaman Animal Shelter, the Emergency Animal Shelter for the towns of Provincetown and Truro, and the Auction Rescue. She also volunteers for the Merrimack Feline Rescue Society feral cat spay/neuter program, the MSPCA, and the ASPCA Field Investigation and Response Team.
Outside of work she enjoys riding her horse around Truro and snowboarding.
She resides on a tiny farm where she grew up in Wellfleet with 2 internationally renowned goats, Erskine and Pinto, a handful of terrier mixes, 2 of the greatest cats in the world, parakeets, and very spoiled chickens.
She is very excited about being at Herring Cove Animal Hospital and looks forward to getting to know you and your family!
