  • "After several bad corporate veterinarian clinics, who push unnecessary treatments without an explanations as to why. Finding East Detroit Animal Hospital is a blessing. They're a private practice, with a passion for what they do. The staff is really friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend East Detroit Animal Hospital to anyone who has their pets best interest at hand."

  • "Great doctor and staff. Very clean facility and she won't charge you an arm and a leg. I highly recommend doc B , as we call her. She loves animals and they love her. My dogs love her, my mothers dog do too."

  • "We have been taking our big baby(literally baby) girl there since she was weeks old. They have been nothing, but accommodating since the beginning. Our dog has high anxiety and they still treat her to their full potential. They have even offered to come to our car to do certain vaccines. She has had several issues and they have never put her through unnecessary testing, as the veterinarian has been knowledgeable thus far with all of her diagnoses. I know that many veterinarians would put animals through testing, just to make money. My husband and I have never felt that way. We would recommend this vet to anyone! Thank you for treating our dog (MJ) as if she was your own.😊"
