Bandit, our 4-year-old Boston Terrier rescue, had an episode of cardiac arrest and was quickly saved by the staff at MSAH. Their crew is always super-friendly and genuinely cares about Bandit.
In the span of more than four decades MSAH has given our pets not only expert medical care but the love and attention that assures our pets are in the very best hands.
You have always gone above and beyond your expected duty of caring for all of our dogs…you will always be our vet…

The first time I put Dixie, who was diagnosed with Cushing's disease in Michigan, on Dr. Brian’s exam table, I knew she would get the treatment she needed. Because of Dr. Brian we were given many extra years to love and adore her. I will be forever grateful to MSAH.
We could not have asked for a more wonderful group of people to take care of “Pordge” and “Beau."

Dr. Chris saved my beloved kitty's life! She was in bad shape after being mauled by a neighbor's dog, and Dr. Chris recommended extensive surgery. She stayed with them for a week following her surgery, and made an astonishing recovery!
Thank you so very much for all of your expert care and advice for my cats. I really appreciate the professionalism of all the staff.
I have been going to Metairie Small Animal Hospital with my 5 wonderful dogs for more than 15 years. The entire staff is so dear and caring; they absolutely go out of their way to help you.
