"More than impressed with the doctors and staff here!!! They are very kind and thoughtful and only want the best for your pet not and only offer what is needed at the moment! They did what they could to offer advice on our 15 yr old golden and what we could do to keep her going! She took a turn for the worst they were very KIND and took the time with us that we needed!!! I can not say THANK YOU enough for helping us get through this really tough time!!"

"Thanks so much for checking up on Chloe!! And thank you again for reading a book to my girls while I was trying to figure out my payment. Your staff is greatly appreciated!"

- Katie and Chloe

"I can not say enough great things about this vet clinic. They truly care about my pet and when they could easily take me for alot of money with her chronic condition, they do not. Instead they try to take a plan of action that can easily be maintained for the long haul. Both vets take the time to talk to me and listen, sometimes without an appointment. My pets are to me like children to many and I can easily say we have found a forever relationship with the vets and vet technicians at Lake Michigan Animal Hospital."

- Heather, Zoe and Dante

- Nicole and Eva

“Just had my Cleo (our pug) checked out by the NEW Lake Michigan Animal Hospital, they are a great team. We have been to another local vet and an out of town vet in the past year and neither one of them could come up with a diagnosis of the problem. The team at Lake Michigan Animal Hospital has come up with a diagnosis and we set up a treatment program. We look forward to more quality time with our dog, Cleo.”

- Mary, David, and Cleo

"Parker our English Setter and his dad David visited your clinic today. David thought that Dr. Baszler was excellent and thorough in explaining Parkers issues and how to correct them. Before doing any treatment she gave David an itemized print out of the cost. It was a great experience for Parker and David."

- David, Linda, and Parker

"Our sincere thanks to Doctor Verhougstraete for her compassion and care regarding Kendal. While the results were not what we wished for, we now have peace of mind and know what is ahead for Kendal. Your "leave no stone unturned" approach now helps us prepare for the end. But we do so knowing we looked at every possibility. For all our friends in Grand Rapids, Allendale areas in need of a compassionate and caring vet I hope you will consider Lake Michigan Animal Hospital."

- David, Cris, and Kendal

"Lake Michigan Animal Hospital is friendly, caring, and thorough at their jobs! Brought my 1 1/2 year old shepherd mix in, he developed a puking problem. Checked him out, got him on antibiotics to calm his stomach and determined he had a gastrointestinal problem. He has a new diet, keeps all his food down now, and is a happy toddler again! Dr. Ricco personally called to check up on him, which is above and beyond my previous clinic! Much appreciated and will be continued clients here at this family friendly clinic!"

-Alyssa and Tucker

"We have spent 100s $ at another vet with no help :( Over a year of getting meds that didn't work and tests that didn't tell us anything. We came here and they found the problem, gave us new meds, and spent less $. We are very happy and will start to bring all of our pets here. THANK YOU!!!

"Took my kitty there for the first time today and I was very impressed! Everyone who I interacted with was welcoming and knowledgeable, and so nice to my baby. I had several places recommended to me and I called around for information before making a decision. I went with Lake Michigan Animal Hospital mainly because they were the ONLY place that soundly friendly and genuinely concerned about my pet when they answered their phone. I'll definitely be sticking with them!!!"

-Beth and Ruger

"The staff at Lake Michigan Animal Hospital are very friendly and
informative. Dr.Ricco was extremely accommodating our first visit and
gave my little guy extremely good care. My dog is protective of his
Momma and he acts very relaxed with the staff here. For a college kid,
cost was a huge factor in deciding a vet and Lake MI animal hospital is
very reasonable with their fees."

helping us and our dog!"

"We were new to the area and our older pup had a bad episode and seemed to be on her last leg. We were frantic looking for guidance on if we needed to put her down. I called and was able to speak directly with Dr. Baszler who listened to my tearful explanation of our dog's status. She got us an appointment right away and Dr. Ricco was so kind in examining her and discussing our options. We won't go anywhere else!"
