The Baton Rouge Animal Hospital that Dr. McElveen owns and personally operates is a full service primary care facility; it is one of the most popular, respected and trusted facilities in the area. Over the years Dr. Mike has treated thousands of canine and feline patients and has seen and diagnosed virtually every sickness and ailment known to affect dogs and cats, which are his specialty. He has also performed numerous surgeries saving pets lives and allowing them to have more time with the families that love them.

All of Dr. Mike’s clients love and trust him with their pets because they know he will always put the animal’s best interest first, he will always thoroughly explain to his clients their pets diagnoses, condition and offer the very best treatment options. Dr. Mike has cared for and treated some very serious cases over the years some involving cancer as well as other very serious conditions. His office is also a full service pet pharmacy where they can dispense most medicines that your pet will need; he has treated pets with chemotherapy and other radical forms of treatment and with great success.

Dr. Mike provides all the regular services that you might find at most veterinarian practices but with a few very important additions. In the evening Dr. Mike becomes an emergency room doctor and his office becomes “The Baton Rouge Pet Emergency Hospital”. Doctor Ron Ponthieux is a friend and partner in the emergency hospital. Together they provide the community and their fellow veterinarian colleagues with an invaluable and most necessary service, if not for them I don’t know what most of us would do with our pets in an emergency situation. Most of the local veterinarians in town trust their patients to Dr. Mike and Dr. Ron when their offices are closed and most even have their phones transferred over to The Baton Rouge Pet Emergency Hospital during off hours.

The emergency hospital is fully and totally equipped with all the necessary equipment to treat almost if not all types of emergencies and they even have a state of the art operating room where he can perform most any kind of emergency or everyday surgery.
