2017Welcome to Veterinary Health Center


Have you been looking for a different kind of veterinarian in the Saginaw, Michigan area?

Veterinary Health Center stays on top of the latest advances and trends in veterinary care, and you won't find a practice more dedicated to keeping your fur kids happy and healthy. From our Fear Free Veterinary Visits to our pet-specific waiting rooms, we welcome you inside to see for yourself how hard we work to make our patients as comfortable as possible.

Learn More About Our Fear Free Veterinary Certification

A Fear Free Veterinary clinic aims to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in pets. As a certified facility, we are extremely proud to be part of one of the most transformative initiatives in veterinary care. Our staff has worked through courses developed by the most respected experts in the world, and our goal is to keep our facilities, hospitalizations, procedures, intakes and discharge running smoothly with the animal's emotional wellbeing in mind.

For commitment and implementation of Fear Free Veterinary certification, we have enhanced our culture and leadership, client education, staff training, and more. This approach has had an incredibly positive impact on our practice and patients.

Yes, We Do Have Dog and Cat-Specific Waiting and Exam Rooms

We are Saginaw’s only Certified Cat-Friendly Practice through the American Association of Feline Practitioners. We have Feline Specific waiting and exam rooms, and the same accommodations for our canine patients.

If your pet is boarding with us, our newly remodeled kennels also feature separate rooms for cats and dogs. Karuna elevated dog beds are standard in our facility and are durable, easy to clean, and will provide excellent joint support for your pet. Our feline visitors have perching shelves as part of their amenities.

Our No. 1 Goal is Superior Service

From routine exams to laboratory and surgical services, we do it all. That includes digital radiology, dental care, and even K-Laser Therapy. We also microchip, and we're the only vet in Saginaw providing Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) services free of charge for feral and free-roaming cats.

Our educational programs for children and our community workshops are also free for Saginaw residents. Community Cat Shelter Builds are held twice a year, with materials provided and food served to everyone in attendance.
