Compassionate Care Animal Hospital
I have been waiting for Dr. Forbes to open her own veterinary office here in A2 for a long time! Finally last February, she and two other wonderful women doctors actually did it (all are working mothers no less!) I am so glad that “compassionate care" has truly arrived in Ann Arbor! I refer them every chance I get. Dr. Forbes and I first met when she was an ER vet over fifteen years ago and I have been taking my animals to her ever since. She miraculously pulled my dear Kofi cat back from the brink of death after he was hit by a car, making tough, decisive calls and letting me be present and informed the entire way. Kofi went on to live many happy years giving us much joy as well as much gratitude for Dr. Forbes Herculean efforts. She has been with us through the life and passing of two very dear four leggeds.Over the years I have been constantly amazed at how smart and unbelievably knowledgeable Dr. Forbes is as well. Her vast ER experience certainly gives her an edge over many... but what drew me to her most was her uncanny ability to sense what my animals felt and needed and her compassion for their suffering. Since opening their doors, CCAH has been my ‘go to’ place for veterinary care and I have been predictably impressed. (It is the only place that my GSD do, Maxx, can visit and not be nervous... No kidding!) They take great care of him including locating scarce resources and medications he must have to survive. If you are a "high maintenance" pet owner like me, (with or without a high maintenance pet) this is definitely where you want to be. They soothe frayed nerves like no one I've experienced.Finally, the docs at CCAH also bring a level of expertise and experience that allows them to avoid the discomfort and expense of stressful and unneeded procedures. I find they are much less interested in racking up big fees than they are in focusing on individual patient comfort and care. In my opinion CCAH is “heads and tails” above the rest (hee hee) and believe me, I’ve been to many over the years. If you want a warm, loving and highly rewarding experience for your pet, I highly recommend you check out Compassionate Care Animal Hospital!

Compassionate Care Animal Hospital
This was my first visit to Compassionate Care Animal Hospital for my adopted cat, Georgy. We were immediately greeted and taken to a room where Georgy could relax and get comfortable. Michelle and Jessica gave Georgy a gentle and thorough exam and answered all my questions & concerns. I was very happy with the service and care taken with my cat. I'm looking forward to a long relationship with this great new Vet practice!

Do not take your pet here!!! Dr. Noble is lacking the "sensitivity chip" and I will no longer be taking my animals to this clinic. I took my dog in last night because she hadn't eaten in 2 days and had started throwing up. Dr. Noble did X-rays and told me that my dog had some fluid, but the x-rays were blurry and hard to read. She said her machine was old and couldn't get clear pictures. After I spent $300 for her to tell me nothing I took my dog to another hospital and they told me that my dog had a huge tumor/mass in her stomach. They also said it was very easy to see this in the x-rays. They could also feel the tumor when they did an exam. I ended up having to put my dog down last night. When I went back to the clinic today to get something I had forgotten...Dr. Noble saw me and did not say anything to me! Not I'm sorry to hear about your dog! Nothing! I will not be back and I will also tell anyone who will listen to not take their beloved pet to this clinic. Horrible!!!

Everyone there is very nice, courteous and knowledgable. I had to drive an hour because of an issue with our cat's teeth and he ended up getting an extraction. Needless to say, I was nervous. Dr. Colmery is an excellent veterinarian. He took his time and cared about our situation. I would highly recommend him. He was very down to earth and I felt like I wasn't just another patient.

If it was possible to give this place a zero star I would. The first 10 minutes were okay, the tech asked us some questions and we talked about what we wanted to do. We were there for a check-up on my six year old 80 lbs rescue dob/shep mix. While he very sweet he is very strong, and cautious of strangers...which I told them prior to the appointment. The Tech walked in with the Vet following, without so much as petting Thor she grabbed his collar twisted it and used it as a turnicate to put him in a head lock. He was immediately frightened and struggled. I calmed him down and asked her to stop. When we suggested we hold Thor, the vet immediately told us that is not how it works. When we insisted that is what we have always done, he said to my mother, Do you have workers comp? Have you been trained to restrain a dog ... We immediately left at this point. There would be no recovery from this interaction, this was terrible, possible the worst scenerio I could imagine outside of outright abuse.

Dixboro Veterinary Dental & Medical Center
I took my dog to Dixboro Medical & Dental center today 3/21/12 for surgery and would NOT recommend this vet to anyone.Dr. Ben Colmery refused to listen to acknowledge what care I wanted for my dog. He said that she probably would die, so “in his opinion” he did not think it would be fair to give her a chance with surgery.I do NOT feel that Dr. Colmery had my dog’s best interest in mind. He is refusing to help her and insisted on putting her down.There are So many specialists for pets as well as people, I do not understand how or Why a vet (in business to help animals) would simply let them die. That is NOT the easy thing to do.I share my life with my dog, my son loves his dog and we do not want her dead, that is why we chose vet care. As a doggy “mother” and a “human” mother, I would NEVER accept a doctor suggesting that I kill my son instead of getting him medical treatment.SHAME on you Dr. Colmery!!! You should get OUT of the vet practice if you do NOT care about the well being of pets or their owners peace of mind and love of their animals!!
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
