We Love Animals at the Switzer Veterinary Clinic
We understand the connection that people share with their dogs and cats and horses — the unbreakable bond with our pets — because we have them too!
They are our friends, members of our family and sometimes even our surrogate children. They provide us with comfort and a quiet moment when we are sad, camaraderie when we need a friend, and a wet slobber when we need a laugh.
We throw tennis balls, ride horses and lounge with our cats in the sunshine. We love animals at the Switzer Veterinary Clinic because they form some of the strongest relationships in our own lives.
We are a four doctor mixed-animal hospital in Alpena that cares for small animals, farm animals and exotic pets including dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, pocket pets, birds, reptiles, horses, dairy and beef cattle, sheep, goats and many more.
As a team of experienced veterinarians, licensed veterinary technicians and compassionate assistants, we are dedicated to providing the most up-to-date services and equipment for your animals. This includes preventative care and exams, advanced surgical procedures and diagnostics, cancer care, and acupuncture and herbal medicine. Of course, 24/7 emergency services are available to all of our patients. Please see our services page for more detailed information.
