Only in town for 30mins before having to rush my Rottweiler here. She had a full tummy or water and played to hard which turned her stomach. They called it bloat, she needed emergency surgery that would of costed around $4000 and they wouldn't of been able to do it there so we would of had to take her another hour away. This price wasn't includes what we had done there. Once she told me the price I knew right then what we had to do. 😢 we couldn't afford to get her surgery done. Even if we could afford it she would of never made it another hour away she would of died on the way. So under the circumstances they were very kind and sympathetic.

All staff members were professional and very kind . Thank you Grayling Animal Hospital for a great experience!Ruth C.Ruth C. ★★★★★ They were so kind and understanding. I've been told my 18 month old GSD started having aggressive problems when he turned 6 months old. His mother has been a patient there since she was 8 weeks old and they were he vet throughout her pregnancy so they have been his vet since birth. They have tried so many medications to calm him down and muzzle him so I feel like I have to put him into a medically induced coma to take him in. So when I brought him into the ER because he ate a bunch of meds from a prescription bottle of while I was up there visiting I was so nervous. To my surprise I was able to take him in without meds, other than the ones he ate, or a muzzle. I was shocked and so relieved, they were awesome. They were so helpful and patient with him.. He received several shots and wasn't at all like my current vet has told me. To this day I've still never been able to go into office with my 18 month old. He was born in June of 2020, since CoVid they stopped allowing the public in and still aren't allowing us to come in with our pets. Maybe he was better because they let me come in and be with him, or maybe it was something else. Regardless it's time to make a change because I know it's possible to get great care for my dog without the meds, muzzle, and drama. I highly recommend these veterinarians to you and want to thank everyone at the Grayling Hospital for Animals for the services.Christen J.Christen J. ★★★★☆ They were very compassionate and truly made me feel better about my little fur baby's condition. And gave her medication to help her feel better.Michelle W.Michelle W. ★★★★☆ Very happy with this practice.Dana P.Dana P. ★★★★☆ They were great. Had to have my 18 yr old dog put down. They were very nice. I was a wreck. They were gentle and loving on my girl in her last minutes. Greatly appreciated.Char HChar H ★★★★☆ Gave our little cockatoo very bad razer burn when she was being neutered.Keith H.Keith H. ★★★★☆ Usually makes you wait with your dog or a pick up 15mins or more outside, but other than that great veterinarian service. Hopefully they will do better and earn a five star review.ChristopherChristopher ★★★★☆ The doctors were very nice and informative. Patient and kind. Great hospital to take ur loved family pets to. I would Definitely refer a friendMichelle G.Michelle G.js_loader

This is by far THE best place to take your little (or big) animal family member. The doctors and assistants are so kind and loving to our babies and to us humans. The girls up front are knowledgeable and friendly. I have been coming here for over 18 years, and have never had a bad experience. Thank you for the loving care you provide to our pets.

Saw our dog on an emergency basis. Emergency surgery was done. Very helpful staff and kept us updated. Made for an expensive vacation but glad they were quick to act for my fur baby.

Susan N.

Took my dog with an acute injury, on a Saturday. They were very gracious to add-on our appointment. He was examined, treated, and improved quickly. The entire staff was wonderful. Thank all of you!
