I switched from my past vet and will never go anywhere else. The staff has been amazing at communicating with me compassionately when I have been under duress for an illness with my dog. Chloe talked to me on the phone and helped ease my mind when on the verge of tears and Gladys was also so kind on the phone. Doctor Wendy Swift has been amazing with my dog after he contracted two tick-born illnesses and helped me come up with a meal plan and supplements that will help strengthen his immune system as well as just give me supportive words. Doctor Turner personally called me when I sent my other dogs embark health results in just to discuss them with me in depth and offer any advice. I have never had a bad experience with this staff and would recommend everyone take their babies here. It feels like they understand that my dogs are my entire life line and I so needed that.

I have moved to Grand Rapids, and I still bring my dog here for his check up.Kara N.Kara N. ★★★★★ We have been going to Ottawa Animal Hospital for many years and have been seeing Dr. Bergstrom. On Friday night my 14 yr. old daisy dog, KimiSoo, showed alarming signs. She was disoriented and couldn't climb the stairs. She kept tipping over. I tearfully called Ottawa Animal Hospital East Saturday morning which was open for the morning, and was given an appointment with Dr. Rushlow. Robin assisted. They diagnosed her as having canine vestibular disease. Dr. Rushlow prescribed anti-nausea medication and an anti-anxiety medication. KimiSoo has been improving. Dr. Rushlow assured me the condition would pass in time and he put my mind at ease. I appreciate OAHEast's prompt scheduling and treatment of my dear little friend. I heartily recommend them.John W Post J.John W Post J. ★★★★★ Great people who really love animals! They are great at making follow up calls to check on my pet's health.Michael Caryn F.Michael Caryn F. ★★★★★ Felt like the staff of this clinic really know their stuff, and they have a lot of extra options for in house care our previous vet did not.

The doctor and the staff are very professional, very friendly, and are sensitive to our desire to lean toward homeopathic care for our pet.Ken S.Ken S. ★★★★★ I can not say enough good things about this location or Dr. Diane Bergstrom after my first visit today. Working in the pet industry can be very difficult, especially in veterinary medicine, and it’s not abnormal to be pushed through quickly, your concerns written off and to see a lot of burnout…but the compassion, friendliness, and respect I was shown today made me want to cry tears of joy (on top of finally being validated and seeing positive improvements in my pet’s medical condition). Dr. Bergstrom listened to what I had to say without judgment or ego and gave me peace of mind. The techs and the office staff were all very friendly and attentive. Thank you so much!Sara R.Sara R. ★★★★★ I just want to give a huge shout out to Dr. Eric Heitman and the techs and front desk personnel !!! I have a 12 year lab that most likely ate something he shouldn't have and had been dealing with intestinal issues for a few days. I called this morning for an appointment and got in this afternoon .

I take my dog here because of Dr. Wendy Swift. She is the best in her field as far as I am concerned. The staff are also dog people and it really shows.

I drive from Whitehall (50 miles) to take my dog to this clinic because of the superior care my dogs receive.Irving C.Irving C. ★★★★★ They take poultry! After my turkey Ducky was attacked I had taken her to the emergency animal hospital. They told me to follow up with Duckys normal vet to check the progress. Well turns out her old vet no longer sees poultry so I was panicking. I was recommended these guys and called Monday got an appointment Monday! Everyone there was super nice and gentle with my girl. I knew it was going to cost me a good amount but not as bad as I thought! Two days after her visit they called to do a check up on her which was so thoughtful! I highly recommend these guys!!Gabzilla ! (.Gabzilla ! (. ★★★★★ We’ve taken our various dogs to Ottawa Animal Hospital since we moved here 14 years ago.

They care about what is best for the pets. They provide all the information clearly so pet parents can make an informed decision. The team are soft spoken and very kind with and towards my dogs.Leann P.Leann P. ★★★★★ I would like to acknowledge Dr. Bergstrom...I recently had to put down my Lab "Bella" - Through the past 5 years- Dr Bergstrom has been so supportive to me and Bella with all the things Bella has gone through. And when it was time to put her down, it was so peaceful for me and my son, and it was because once again Dr Bergstrom was there going through it with us. She is a great Vet and loves the clients (pets) she deals with. Thanks!Gaye B.Gaye B. ★★★★★ I had to bring my cat in for an emergency and couldn’t have asked for better care!Becky D.Becky D. ★★★★★ Adore Dr. Swift and the staff at Ottawa Animal East (and West). Our fox and Newf have the best care possible. Highly responsive and offer many approaches to pet wellness issues.Alexandria V.Alexandria V. ★★★★★ I could not recommend this place more! I move around a bit and have been to a few different vets for my pets. I’ve always had great service but nothing like I had here! I had a pretty scary last few nights with my cat and was able to get him in for an emergency appointment as soon as I called here! Once I got there the appointment was super quick and easy! And every single employee I met had a smile on their face and they were all so kind and educational!!! Gingy and I certainly cannot wait to return! (I’ll probably even drive back up here even when I move away, I was seriously so pleased with my service today 😊)Ashley R.Ashley R. ★★★★★ Our 15.5 year old pup got sick on Sunday.

We have received flowers and a card from OAH, and recently were notified that OAH had made a donation to Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in memory of Guinness. Finally, we would like to give special recognition and thanks to Drs. Bergstrom and Patterson for the loving care they gave to our "Gentle Little Giant". We feel they have become part of our family.

I would give them 10 stars if possible! They always take such great care of my dog and make sure she is only handled by female staff, since she can be male aggressive in tense situations. They always answer all questions and take the time to make sure my dog is treated properly and feels comfortable. They don’t rush you through your appointment just to get to the next customer, they make sure you get everything you need before leaving.

OAH has been our go to for care of our dogs for many years. The care our dogs have received over the years has been nothing less than the very best. The doctors are the kindest and most knowledgeable around. In some situations we were referred to higher level of care and never once doubted their recommendation as we knew the doctors had our dogs best interest at heart. The vet techs are outstanding as well. I can’t say enough about them. The office staff members are so kind and helpful.

Judy H

Dr. Turner is the kindest and considerate Vet! From Freddie and now Biff she has been so communicative and accessible to us. Beyond impressed!! Thank you for all you do for our fur-family! Absolutely encourage everyone to go to see her!
