Specialty surgeries

Animal Humane Society's Kindest Cut program offers a select menu of specialty surgeries for pets of income qualified pet owners. These services are only available to otherwise healthy animals. Any required after care is the responsibility of the owner. 

Presurgical exam

We require a presurgical exam before you can schedule your pet's surgical procedure. You can visit Melrose Animal Clinic at any time during walk-in wellness hours for this presurgical exam.

After the presurgical exam is complete, Melrose Animal Clinic staff will schedule your pet's surgical appointment.
