Our Mission

At Saugus Animal Hospital, our mission is to be there for our clients by providing unparalleled medical care in an atmosphere of uncompromising compassion so that our patients live long and healthy lives.

A Letter from our Medical Director

Welcome to Saugus Animal Hospital!

I Dr. Wengert holding a puppygrew up in Newton, MA and knew from a very early age that I wanted to be a veterinarian because I was just “hooked” on animals. At that time I didn’t fully understand what a veterinarian was, but throughout my childhood and early-adulthood I learned about the field. Animals were wonderful and the medicine was fascinating, so it stuck. I graduated from the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015, and I have been in small animal practice ever since. I joined the Saugus Animal Hospital family in 2016.

Dr. Binder has grown Saugus Animal Hospital into an amazing practice over the past 30+ years, and I am excited to continue the work that he has been doing to keep the hospital running smoothly. I plan to continue to make this a hospital that all of our clients and patients want to keep coming back to and will recommend to their friends and family.

We pride ourselves on caring for your pets like we do our own. All of us care deeply about each and every one of our patients, and we want them to live the longest, happiest lives possible. This is why we strive to stay current on the newest scientifically proven treatments, and we recommend appropriate preventive care options for every single one of our patients.

As an accredited American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) practice and a Fear Free Certified Practice, we work diligently to exceed their requirements and promote the highest standards of veterinary treatment and pet care in the kindest way possible. AAHA membership and Fear Free Certification are voluntary but dependent on passing mandatory regular and comprehensive inspections of our facility and records.

It is always our goal to make sure that our clients understand not only what we are doing, but how and why it is important. We will never perform treatments or tests without first discussing the details with the owners and coming up with the best plan for that particular pet. Every patient is unique and needs its own, specific treatment plan. We encourage our clients to ask questions and be active participants in our mission of providing the best care possible for their pet.

Thank you for visiting our website and for learning more about the type of medicine that we practice.

We hope to see you soon!
