Testimonials

Bandit, our 4-year-old Boston Terrier rescue, had an episode of cardiac arrest and was quickly saved by the staff at MSAH. Their crew is always super-friendly and genuinely cares about Bandit.

In the span of more than four decades MSAH has given our pets not only expert medical care but the love and attention that assures our pets are in the very best hands.

You have always gone above and beyond your expected duty of caring for all of our dogs…you will always be our vet…
–Cindy & John
The first time I put Dixie, who was diagnosed with Cushing's disease in Michigan, on Dr. Brian’s exam table, I knew she would get the treatment she needed. Because of Dr. Brian we were given many extra years to love and adore her. I will be forever grateful to MSAH.
–Joann
We could not have asked for a more wonderful group of people to take care of “Pordge” and “Beau."
–Dave & Beverly
Dr. Chris saved my beloved kitty's life! She was in bad shape after being mauled by a neighbor's dog, and Dr. Chris recommended extensive surgery. She stayed with them for a week following her surgery, and made an astonishing recovery!
–Scott
