Some clients have expressed interest in purchasing Prescription Drugs (ex. heartworm medication) for their pets over the Internet. A Doctor’s prescription is required for this to take place. We want you to know that if you decide that you want to purchase a prescription in this manner, our doctors will be happy to write your pet the appropriate prescription. However, there are some things we believe you would want to know that are not readily apparent:

For your convenience, Companion Animal Hospital now has our own on-line store on our website www.CAHTC.com.

Buying medications from our site gives us the ability to monitor your purchases and maintain the continuity of your pet’s record(s).

Since Dr. Lynch's return to practice, my Senior dog's problem of many years has improved tremendously with VOM, Acupuncture/Acupressure and Chinese herbs. Dr. Lynch's ability to assess the symptoms and zero in on an effective treatment was remarkable. I am thrilled to have these alternative veterinary services available in Traverse City.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lynch for treatment. The acupuncture treatments that he has done for my cat, Maxx, have done a world of good. It has made a huge difference and the effects from the treatments have been immediate for Maxx. It is so nice to have this treatment option available.

We have been taking our two cats and one dog to Dr. Izo for many years. She is an excellent, caring and down to earth person, who is a remarkable at what she does and the care she provides. The entire staff at CAHTC is great to deal with and they truly have your pet's best interest at heart.

Thanks to the entire staff of Companion Animal Hospital for tirelessly working with me to assist my dog with her fear of nail cutting! She is now able to have this procedure without any fears or resistance! Additionally the wellness care and the sincere interest in her from the staff is so nice. Always pleasant and professional the Doctors and staff are above average. I recommend this Animal Hospital to all my friends and co-workers and many now use them with the same satisfaction.
