A Family Practice and Full-Service Hospital

When your pet falls sick, it is critical that you know the animal hospital taking care of them has the knowledge, skills, and diagnostic resources available to provide them with the best care possible.

Unlike most small animal practices at Meriden Animal Hospital, we have advanced diagnostic capabilities to meet your animal’s health care needs.

The MAH Good, Better, Best Approach is the foundation of how we practice medicine and best protect your pet. The power is in the options, and we make sure we provide them all to you so that you can make the best-informed decision for your pet and family.

General Practice Medicine: A Proactive Approach to Wellness and Healthy Living

We all know the saying “An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure.” The important take away from that saying is that if you provide your pet with good nutrition, help them maintain ideal body weight, provide them with adequate exercise and a whole lot of love, you will put them in an ideal situation to live a truly healthy life. We will help guide and educate you along the way!

Internal Medicine

Our doctors have well over 75 years of combined experience in advanced medical management. We have successfully managed every condition from acute kidney disease, to type II diabetes, to Cushing’s disease and everything in between. In addition to our on-site doctors’ skills and knowledge, at MAH, we have also invested in bringing advanced internal medicine consultation services to our patients. If there is ever a question or concern, all we have to do is pick up the phone and contact one of our internal medicine consultants who will review our patient’s history and bloodwork in real-time and discuss the best and most current treatment options available.


Having good dental health is one of the foundations of a healthy body. Pets who have advanced dental disease are at grave risk of damaging other vital body organs due to chronic infection, which can spread throughout the body. Our doctors are highly skilled at recognizing any early warning signs and creating affordable solutions to address their needs. From general prophylactic dental cleanings to advanced extractions, we have the tools and skills to meet your pet’s needs.


  • Advanced Digital X-Rays: Since 2008, we have made available to our clients and patients the most advanced digital x-ray imaging. This imaging machine’s speed and clarity are critical in providing the best diagnostic options for your pet.
  • On-Site Ultrasounds: Offering on-site ultrasounds is an advantage that sets us apart from other local animal healthcare facilities. This capability allows for quicker diagnosis and immediate assessment of a pet’s condition, leading to more efficient and targeted treatments.

Soft Tissue Surgery

From routine spay and neuters to advanced soft tissue surgery, our doctors have the skills to safely and effectively meet your pet’s needs. Utilizing the best monitoring and safe anesthesia practices, we can provide excellent surgical care to your pet if the situation arises.

Orthopedic Surgery

Unlike most small practices that refer patients away for orthopedic surgery, at MAH, we have the knowledge and ability to safely address your dog’s orthopedic surgery needs, often at a fraction of the cost. From broken bones to ACL tears to hip surgery, we can handle 90% of all orthopedic surgery problems right here at MAH.
