Why Us

The Story of Sugar River Animal Hospital

Dr. Catherine MacLean has high ideals and a vision for what exceptional veterinary care should look like, and Sugar River Animal Hospital was founded on those dreams. With her history of working at other small animal practices, including some emergency practices, Dr. MacLean began taking notes on which aspects of veterinary care worked and which didn’t work so well. She has combined all of the very best practices she has encountered in her plan for Sugar River Animal Hospital.

Sugar River Animal Hospital is not just a hospital, but is also a full-service clinic, able to provide care for sick pets as well as wellness and preventive care for pets in any stage of life. We are continually motivated to provide the absolute best care to our clients and patients in Grantham and the surrounding areas, from Enfield to New London and Lebanon to Newport. As a small, privately owned practice, we make our pet care recommendations based on each pet’s needs. We will guide you to the best option for your pet’s treatment, considering all aspects of their needs and your lifestyle.
