About Us

Our History

Waugh Chapel Animal Hospital (WCAH) was established by Dr. Scott Andersen in 2002 with the goal of building an Animal Hospital that would become a spirited part of the growing community that was West Anne Arundel County. Since the day we opened, we have striven to care for the pets and the people within our community, without discrimination towards any breed. Serving more than nine thousand households throughout our county and beyond has allowed us to stay on the leading edge of exceptional veterinary medicine and provide the quality and range of services you and your pets deserve. We were voted the ‘Best Veterinary Clinic’ in 2013 by What’s Up West County and received Angie’s List “super Service Award in 2011.

Our Mission

The mission of WCAH is to provide quality healthcare with the highest standards of compassion; to encourage strong owner participation; to improve quality of life through informed decisions and to promote the welfare of animals everywhere.
