Welcome to Wickham Animal Hospital and Boarding

Providing outstanding service to pets and their owners in a
caring and compassionate manner.


Our Services

We provide a range of services, from preventative care to emergency surgeries. Our Primary goal is to keep our patients healthy and out of the hospital, but when that is simply not possible, we use our state of the art equipment, broad knowledge base, and varied experience to keep their stay as brief as possible.


About Wickham Animal Hospital

Wickham Animal Hospital and Boarding is a full-service small animal hospital and boarding facility located in Melbourne, Florida. Originally created by Dr. Charlie Steiner in 1979, the hospital was formed under the fundamental belief that we would practice quality medicine and bring compassion and understanding to our clients. Eventually he added Dr. Rosen, who carried on his vision and maintained the hospital’s quality of care once Dr. Steiner passed away.

Early in 2019 the practice invited Dr. Hadley to join their ranks and, once Dr. Steiner’s widow decided to sell the practice, she purchased Wickham Animal Hospital & Boarding. Dr.s Rosen and Hadley now work closely as a team to keep the practice moving forward, updating it with current medical equipment, and bringing in concepts and practices that allow us to bring the best medical innovation to your pets.

We are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership, preventative health care, and health-related educational opportunities for our clients. Our belief is, through educating owners, we can prevent disease and a number of health-related emergencies for our families. Our staff seek to provide outstanding service to pets and their owners in a caring and compassionate manner. We strive to give the best possible preventative, medical, and surgical care. Our goal is to build a lasting relationship with our clients and their pets.



We met Dr. Renee Hadley at one of the saddest times of our lives. Our sweet Chai was dying of liver failure. Dr. Hadley took the time to explain what Chai was going through and gave us honest answers in a very compassionate manner. Dr. Hadley administered euthanasia, with gentle kindness to both Chai and us. She shared our pain as we let Chai go. Thank you Dr. Hadley for your love of “your kids."

Dr. Rosen was so helpful and kind when our Mia girl was sick. She called to check on her everyday after our visit. When Mia passed, the office sent us a very thoughtful card full of handwritten messages. It was a very nice gesture and really meant a lot to our family.

Dr. Rosen and Wickham Rd Animal Hospital have been talking excellent care of all our pets since 2001. They are caring, thorough and provide excellent service to our pets. We can't imagine going anywhere else because our dogs love everyone there.

I’ve taken all of my pets here for so many years. The original doctor passed away unfortunately but the new team that has taken over has been absolutely 100% marvelous. They were caring and kind and they called back to make sure that my Baby was doing well after the antibiotic was prescribed. They gave me more than one option of how to give my Sweet Boy his medicine. All of the staff are amazing!!

We just love Dr. Hadley! Barkley is always happy to see them and greats them with kisses. The techs, Mike E, Mike, Sydney and Trista are all wonderful. The office staff are always so kind and helpful. I highly recommend Wickham Animal Hospital ans Boarding.

Thank you to all the staff especially Dr Hadley and Dr Rosen. The comfort and compassion shown by everyone was invaluable during a very difficult time for us. We wll forever remember your kindness.

All the staff is very friendly. My family has been coming here for a long time and when I got a puppy and brought her in they all loved it. No one was rude at all. Will be coming back for years to come.

Yesterday, I had to make the difficult decision to say goodbye to my laid back cat Fry just before his 14th birthday. The staff was very accommodating, answered all of my questions, and supportive. They made the process of saying goodbye as peaceful as they possibly could.

Highly Recommend Them...from Marilyn the Receptionist, Mike E the Tech and Dr. Hadley they were so amazing! They are very genuine, kind, caring and knowledgeable. You will feel welcomed.
