We see pets by appointment. Sick pets are seen as soon as possible and emergencies are given top priority.
Please call 810-629-9882 as far in advance as possible for appointments. If an appointment cannot be kept, please notify us as soon as possible so we can use that time for someone else.
Our telephone is answered by our receptionist during our regular office hours, and by an answering system when the office closed. The answering system provides the names and phone numbers for emergency services.
Due to the large number of phone calls handled each day, we ask that you give all of the details concerning the reason for your call to the receptionist. If the receptionist is unable to assist you, we will have a technician call you as soon as they are available.
Our fees are based on our cost of operations. We recognize the need for a definite understanding when it comes to fees, and that this is necessary for a good relationship between our clients and us. An itemized estimate will be given to you upon request and itemized receipts explaining the charges are always given. If you have any questions about your bill or fees, please ask.

We accept cash, checks, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, Adopt-a-Pet & Humane Society discounts. Payment is required at the time of service or when your pet goes home.

BB remains antisocial, refusing to associate with the commoners who come into the clinic. She spends her days hiding out under the lab equipment plotting how she will one day take over the clinic. Although she lives a life of solitude and is often in hiding, she does make frequent appearances at the food bowl. She continues to work towards her goal of being an only pet without the hustle and bustle of a busy veterinary clinic!
Halle was found at a local McDonalds by a couple of teenagers during a snowstorm. Halle had 2 broken legs and nerve damage to her front left paw. Three orthopedic surgeries and 4 years later she lives in the office with Dr. Smith and the rest of the staff. She was only 6 weeks old when injured, so really doesn't know there is anything wrong with her front legs. She is happy and healthy and is eying Buddha's job position.
Buddha came to the Animal Health Clinic in 1996. At that time, he was an underweight, neglected stray. Although Buddha struggles with kidney disease now, he receives fluids, medication and lots of love everyday from all of the staff. Buddha is probably our most popular employee, meeting and greeting all the clients as well as helping out at the front desk. He makes a fabulous paperweight!
