Our entire Veterinary Team is committed to providing the very best veterinary care, services and products available in the Salem, NH area. We pledge to stay on the leading edge of veterinary medicine technology; surgical, diagnostic and treatment skills; behavior management and pet recreation; client and patient services; and client financial services and programs.

You will notice 5 Care Commitment Themes on your visit to Main Street Animal Hospital which are representative of our commitment to you and your pets. These are Preventative Medicine, Dental Health, Senior Pet Health, Weight Management / Weight Loss, and Client Education.
The advances in human medicine have enabled tremendous strides in veterinary medicine. The result is greater knowledge about animal development, the prevention of progressive and life threatening illnesses and diseases, and state of the art monitoring and diagnostic equipment. Vaccinations, annual or bi-annual physical examinations, routine bloodwork, urinalysis, fecal testing, and preventative medications all enable your pet to avoid damaging illnesses and diseases and/or be diagnosed in time to allow for early medical intervention which reduces the likelihood of more damage later in your pet’s life.
The emergence of pet tooth brushing, dental check-ups, dental cleanings, healthy diet and treats and tooth-healthy toys once came as a shock to pet owners. As more of us become aware of the pet health risks associated with poor dental health, we understand how we can avoid costly and painful dental procedures by providing good preventative dental home care to our pets.
Senior Pet Health
Improved pet diets and progressive veterinary care allow pets to live longer and healthier lives. This means that Senior Pets (aged 7 and older), just like their human counterparts, require special attention and a different approach. Joint Pain, Diabetes, Urinary Disorders, Weight Management, Dental Health, and Thyroid Disorders are some typical Senior Pet health issues that are addressed to provide the best quality of life possible.
Weight Management / Weight Loss
Many of us do not realize the health risks and complications of being an overweight pet. An overweight pet is more likely to develop diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease and joint problems. We offer weight loss programs, special diets, and support from our veterinary staff.
A cornerstone of our practice is providing the opportunity for our clients to learn more about their pet’s health and care. Our Client Education Center is filled with educational information and we host free client education events year round. We want to be ”Veterinary Care Information Central” for all of our clients and we invite you to share in the education experiences available at our hospital. We welcome your suggestions for anything that would provide better client education at Main Street Animal Hospital.
