Our Veterinarians

Founded in 1984, Mellett Animal Hospital is a modern, full service small-animal hospital. We specialize in providing care for canines and felines alike. Our practice understands the need for consistent care.


Our compassionate, professional staff is dedicated to providing the highest level of care possible. We treat each patient like they are our own pet because we love what we do. We provide effective care that is responsive to the needs of the community.


Our doctors at Mellett Animal Hospital offer a variety of services. Preventative medicine, such as physical examinations, vaccinations, spays and neuters are our main focus. We also perform soft tissue surgery as well as most orthopedic procedures. In addition, our practice is equipped for radiology, in-house laboratory work, laser surgery, endoscopy and rhinoscopy.
