About Us

Shawsheen Animal Hospital was founded in April 2001 by long-time friends Dr. Michele Caruso and Dr. Shawn LeBlanc. In 2007, our practice earned accreditation with the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) to demonstrate our commitment to excellence in veterinary medicine and to the well-being of pets.

Making and keeping your pet healthy was our first priority when we first opened our doors, and it’s still our priority today. We excel at customizing care so that we can meet the unique needs of your animal companion—after all, no two pets are exactly alike.

We have also taken steps to make our hospital the absolute best it can be for both pets and people. We’ve been proudly accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association since 2007, which means we meet the highest standards in veterinary medicine. We’re also a certified Cat-Friendly Practice with the American Association of Feline Practitioners, and utilize Fear Free techniques, so vet visits are as easy as possible on both you and your pet.

In fact, we’re so sure you’ll be pleased with the care and service you and your pet receive, that we offer a FREE first wellness exam for new clients! We know you want your pet to be treated with compassion, gentleness, and respect, and that is the guiding principle of our doctors and staff. If there are any questions we can answer or help we can provide to make your pet’s life better, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
