Welcome to Melton Veterinary Hospital

For over 30 years, Melton Veterinary Hospital has improved lives through care and modern veterinary medicine to dog, cat and horse owners in Bastrop, Louisiana and surrounding areas of Morehouse Parish including Mer Rouge, Oak Ridge, Bonita, Oak Grove and Ouachita Parish areas of Sterlington and Swartz plus our friends in Crossett and southeast Arkansas.

Melton Veterinary Hospital is your partner in your pet’s health and we treat each patient like our own pet. Combined with progressive resources and technologies, our animal clinic can provide care to your pets in every stage of their lives.

As pet owners ourselves, we believe annual preventative care with wellness exams, vaccines, parasite screenings and heartworm test and lab tests are the keys to your pet living a longer, healthier and happier life. As a full-service vet hospital, we also provide your pet with surgery, diagnostics and x-rays, pet dentistry, microchipping, nutritional counseling plus boarding to care for your pets when you travel out of Bastrop.


Stop by for your pet's prescriptions, food and supplies at our retail pharmacy and store or shop online 24/7 at your convenience in our online pet pharmacy and store!

At Melton Veterinary Hospital, our mission is to maintain good business practices, sound professionalism with our clients and the highest standards in veterinary medicine. We are a dedicated group working together with an attitude of teamwork and a strong emphasis on communication. Our clients and their pets are our sole reason for existing; they are the true “board of directors” of our vet hospital. No activity is more important than meeting the needs of our clients and caring for their animals.

As an active member of Morehouse Parish community and the Bastrop-Morehouse Chamber of Commerce, we look forward to meeting you soon!

Call us at 318-283-0656 so we can help you create additional memories and celebrate more birthdays with your pets!

Vet Services

Wellness Exams

Because pets can't tell us how they feel, we recommend a complete physical examination at least once a year, though exams every 6 months are encouraged. The veterinary exam allows us to develop a picture of your pet's overall health as well as to spot potential issues before they become too advanced. As your partner in your pet’s health, we welcome questions about your pet's health, habits and daily care.
