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

Now open seven days, we offer a full range of services for cats, dogs, small mammals, reptiles, birds, and fish. 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 eight 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.

VCA Wakefield Animal Hospital is an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association, an honor awarded to fewer than 12% of North American veterinary hospitals. To maintain our accreditation, AAHA conducts regular inspections to ensure that we maintain the highest standards in patient care,

Excellent care for our pomeranian!
Laurie from Stoneham

My Pomeranian is almost 16 years old. He started limping a few weeks ago, on a Saturday and we simply couldn't wait until Monday to have him seen by his regular veterinarian. We called VCA Wakefield on Sunday morning to try to get him an appointment. Even my first initial interaction with them via the phone was excellent. They were supportive, caring, and very helpful in getting me in that same day for a consultation. Once we arrived, the unbelievable care and attention continued. I never felt like anyone cared so much for my dog as the staff at VCA. It is an amazing feeling when a medical team seems to love your dog as much as you do. They were especially attentive to the fact that he was an older dog and definitely took that into consideration during their examination and treatment plan. They asked for a thorough background and listened intently when I gave them all the details. They listened and understood his sensitivity to certain meds. and prescribed accordingly. And, they followed up more than once to make sure my little guy was doing okay. He is completely healed now thanks to the correct medication and treatment plan. I will be making VCA his permanent hospital as a result of this one amazing experience. Thank you to the entire staff there for helping our elderly dog get back on his feet!
