Did you know that many people AND pets can be affected by heatstroke? The best way to prevent heatstroke is to allow your pet to relax in a cool or shady area, always with access to the inside, and plenty of fresh, cold water for drinking. And remember to never leave your pet in an enclosed vehicle either!
Merrimac Valley Animal Hospital had humble beginnings in 1968. Dr. Walter Brown opened the animal hospital in a garage next to his home near the current hospital and operated out of this small space until the current building was built in 1969.
