The staff and doctors are caring, compassionate, but pragmatic. We've never been pressed to buy services we didn't need.

While nobody wants to balance their pet's health with the cost, we sometimes have to and they help us with those decisions by giving realistic price estimates and laying out what needs to be done, what should be done, and what could be done.

I have been coming to SB Animal Hospital for many years and two eras of pets. My pets are like my children and very important to me. SBAH seems to know this and understand this. I am always treated with respect, as are my pets.

Laura from Traverse City, MI

So many reasons why…. one being that it’s comforting to have a vet that cares for your pet just as much as you do. From the front desk to the exam room, In my 8 years with this vet, the flow of compassion has been steady and consistent, thank you!
