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

The staff is fantastic. They were very attentive with my newly adopted fur baby, answered all of my questions and let me know the cost of treatments and meds upfront so there were no surprises at checkout. Top notch and highly recommended!

~ Heather I.

I wouldn’t take Cody anywhere else. Dr. DeSimone and your staff are extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and caring of not only my four legged babies but their Mom as well. Thank you for everything.

~ Carol R.

Oh my goodness not sure you could have done anything differently. You all were kind, accommodating, thorough, and excellent listeners. You ALL are FABULOUS!

~ Elizabeth B.

Sumo has severe cardiovascular issues that were discovered by a very thorough DeSimone and through this, led to treatment that saved his life. Beyond excellent care. Cannot recommend highly enough.

~ Ramona C.

The doctors and tech team are so kind and compassionate. They have great bedside manner and have really mastered the idea of relaxing the environment but still being direct and clear. We brought our French lop in for a sick visit after having some respiratory issues. The staff handled both her and us with such compassion and care. They even called a few days later to ensure we weren’t having issues administering her medications and to check in. They will exclusively be our vet going forward!
