About Shaker Heights Animal Hospital

Established in 1943, and purchased in 2016 by Dr. Jeremy Welsh, Shaker Heights Animal Hospital has provided quality veterinary care to the greater Cleveland area for decades.  We are proud to be an independently and locally owned and operated hospital.

As time changes the face of a city, it also changes the philosophies and perspectives of individuals. New discoveries and advancements in veterinary medicine have affected our four-legged family members. With advancements in diagnostic technology, preventive care, treatments and client education, we have the ability to provide a longer, healthier life for your pets. Our doctors understand the role all these components play in ensuring you and your pet live the best life possible together and we continue to grow and evolve as a progressive, Fear Free Certified, veterinary hospital.

Shaker Heights Animal Hospital has relocated to a fully renovated, 3,500 square foot hospital located at 3505 Lee Road, Shaker Heights. We are humbled by the support of the community on this endeavor and are looking forward to expanding our team and community reach.
