Metairie Small Animal Hospital has been serving the New Orleans metropolitan area for over 70 years. Originally named Metry Animal Hospital, the practice was founded by Dr. Tom Melius in 1946. In 1952, Metairie Small Animal Hospital was built at its present location at 101 Metairie Road. One year later, in 1953, Dr. Henry Melius joined the practice, and from such humble beginnings, MSAH has evolve...d and grown to keep pace with the ever-increasing technology and medical advances. The practice currently has 16 doctors and over 90 employees on staff. In addition to the Main Hospital on Metairie Road, we also operate four Out Patient Clinics in Kenner, Metairie, Lakeview in New Orleans, and Freret Street in New Orleans to better serve our clients.
