Caring for pets... and their people, too.

Now open seven days, we offer a full range of services for cats, dogs, small mammals, reptiles, and birds. Although most clients come from Lynnfield, Melrose, Reading, Saugus, Stoneham, Wakefield, and Woburn, many drive up from Boston or down from New Hampshire to see one of our seven doctors.  We offer wellness care, treat diseases and injuries, and perform complex dental procedures and surgeries. Typical dentals include cleaning and polishing, full-mouth digital x-rays, and -- if necessary -- extractions. We also provide pharmaceutical products and pet foods, and acupuncture is available by appointment.

We provide veterinary services for every stage in your pet's life, from her first shots to a lifetime of preventive care to keep her happy and healthy.

Our services don't end at our hospital doors.  As a member of the VCA family, our veterinarians have access to extensive medical resources, not the least of which is the VCA knowledge base, which allows our doctors to tap into the collected knowledge of over 2,000 VCA veterinarians.

And if your pet ever needs truly advanced veterinary care, VCA Specialty Hospitals are ready to help.  These twenty-eight clinics provide state-of-the-art care in orthopedic surgery, physical therapy, advanced oncology, and even such cutting-edge treatments as stem cell therapy.

Our local specialty hospital is VCA South Shore Animal Hospital in Weymouth.  They are open 24/7 for emergencies, and they have specialists in internal medicine, ophthalmology, neurology, emergency medicine, and cardiology.

The friendly, professional staff at VCA Wakefield Animal Hospital is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To be true to this mission, the hospital team relies on several individuals. Each team member is equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet.

Our staff enjoys all kinds of pets. Be sure to peek into Exam Room 3 to see a wide and varied gallery of their personal avian, canine, equine, feline, reptilian, and other pals.

Thank you Dr. Pelletier for your help and kindness
Susan Roche from Saugus

I want to thank Dr. Pelletier for her kindness, sympathy and reassurance during a difficult time. Tori was a beautiful cat, who lived to the age of 19. She now joins her brother, Toby, who lived 18 years. Losing a member of the family is so sad and heart breaking. Thank you Dr. for your help and kind words that day, I needed to hear you say we were doing the right thing. Thanks again to you and your wonderful and patient staff.
