Gratiot Animal Hospital is a full-service wellness practice as well as a diagnostic and surgery center.

Each pet has its own unique lifestyle, so we tailor comprehensive wellness programs to their individual needs. We also provide routine surgical and dental procedures, cardiology, the latest and safest anesthetics and delivery systems with pulse oximetry anesthesia monitoring equipment, and an in-house diagnostic laboratory for rapid test results.

As in human medicine, veterinary medicine is experiencing rapid advances in technology. Many of these, however, require specialized equipment and expertise. Through our association with the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University, Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners, the Animal Surgical Center of Michigan and other specialty hospitals, we are able to offer referrals for diagnostics, surgeries and other therapies that are currently not available at our facility.
