cat-friendlyThe Companion Animal Hospital of Traverse City is a veterinary practice for dogs, cats, rabbits and pocket pets that has high standards and practices extraordinary medicine. Our combination of state-of-the-art facilities and over 40 years of experience enable our doctors to find the best solutions for your pet(s).

Our hospital is proud to live our vision since our inception in April of 2002. It remains the guidepost for everything we do and how we do it!

Our clients find out early on that our hallmarks are exceptional communication and education. We have always believed a well educated client is a strong ally, making the best decisions and helping provide the best possible outcome. We understand how important it is for your pet’s care, that you are comfortable with your veterinarian and are really able to talk with your veterinarian. You won’t feel shuffled in and out or like a number at our hospital!

We are a full service veterinary hospital and specialize in the compassionate care of our furry family members throughout life. Our clients and patients are treated very well at our hospital and always with respect! Discriminating clients love our service and communication. We often see clients seeking a second opinion on their pet’s condition.

We offer a wide range of services and encourage you to click on and learn about them. As much as we have to offer, due to the vastness of the profession and the trend to specialize, there will always be areas in which we do not have expertise. You can rest assured that should your special friend have a need in an area outside of our knowledge or expertise, we will refer you to someone we KNOW has what your pet needs! We have developed close working relationships locally and regionally that serve our clients and patients with high levels of expertise.

One of these relationships is with the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University. Widely known as one of if not THE finest teaching veterinary hospital in the country, Dr. Izo has served on the Veterinary Practitioners Advisory Board for many years and has many long term relationships at the teaching hospital. Michigan State is also one of the primary sources of continuing education for veterinarians in our region. Our doctors participate on a regular basis.

Again, WELCOME to our web site! If you are already a client, thank you for your support and we appreciate you telling your family, friends and neighbors about us. If you are not yet a client, we invite you into our client family to experience the best care and service around. Please look through the entire web site.

What our Clients are Saying

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.

~ Cindy H.

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.

~ Emily H.

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.

~ Mark H.

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.
