Metairie Small Animal Hospital


101 Metairie Road
Metairie, LA 70005


Metairie Small Animal Hospital has been devoted to health maintenance and emergency care in the New Orleans metropolitan area for over 75 years. Originally named Metry Animal Hospital, the practice was founded by Dr. Tom Melius in 1946. In 1952, Metairie Small Animal Hospital was built at its present location at 101 Metairie Road. One year later, in 1953, Dr. Henry Melius joined the practice, and from such humble beginnings, MSAH has evolved and grown to keep pace with the ever-increasing technology and medical advances. In addition to the Main Hospital on Metairie Road, we also operate five Out-Patient Clinics in Kenner, Metairie, Lakeview, Freret Street, and the Marigny in New Orleans to better serve our clients. We offer comprehensive care for your pet 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our services range from 24/7 emergency care at our main hospital to wellness exams, surgical procedures, and everything in between. If you have questions about any of our services, please don’t hesitate to call and one of our receptionists will be more than happy to assist you.
