Brookline Animal Hospital was founded in June 2012 by Margaret Monachelli, D.V.M. The practice was opened in the Monachelli’s (circa 1834) colonial house as a “home business”. The front door of the practice is the front door to the home. The waiting room is the home’s original parlor. The reception area was the home’s dining room. An addition was built onto the house in 2012 to accommodate a treatment room, kennel, surgery and radiology. In 2016, a second addition was added onto the first to allow us to continue to meet the demands of our growing client base.

We opened this hospital without any clients, in a small town with a population of only 5000. Thankfully, we were well received. We were thrilled to find that the Town of Brookline embraced the idea of having their own Veterinary Hospital. In addition, we were fortunate that many of Dr. Monachelli’s previous clients were happy to travel to Brookline for their veterinary care.

Brookline Animal Hospital is so fortunate to have a star-studded team of Veterinarians, Veterinary technicians, and Staff. See the “Our Team” page to meet our doctors and staff.

Many of our current employees and all our Doctors have worked together for many years before Brookline Animal Hospital ever existed. Together we have a long history of providing excellence in veterinary and client care. It is this long history and extensive experience that has forged the success of Brookline Animal Hospital. As we have grown, newer employees have embraced our high standards, brought new ideas to the practice, and have become invaluable team members.

While much of the hospital is housed in a new and modern building, clients feel the warmth and comfort of coming into our “home” when they enter Brookline Animal Hospital.

You, our clients, are part of the Brookline Animal Hospital family and we are here to help with all your 4-legged family member’s needs.
