About Traverse City, Michigan
Our small animal practice is located in beautiful Northern Michigan, a favorite vacation spot for generations due to the natural beauty and bountiful outdoor activities (hunting, fishing, skiing, and hiking). It is a great place to live and raise a family. We are on the southeast side of town. The whole region has been among the fastest growing areas in the state for the past 20 years (or more) and our area is growing now.

Our Growing Practice
Dr. Marcia Izo (Seymour) (a 1979 graduate of the Michigan State University school of Veterinary Medicine) built and founded the practice in April of 2002 after serving the area as an associate veterinarian for over 20 years. We have a beautiful state-of-the-art (with newer equipment and fully computerized) facility in a park-like setting. In 2005 we added Dr. Jennifer Kavran, another graduate of the Michigan State University school of Veterinary Medicine. She has been a wonderful addition to our hospital that shares our practice philosophy and vision. In late 2012 Dr. Albert Lynch came out of retirement to continue practicing his blend of Traditional & Alternative Therapies at our practice. In May of 2015 Dr. Kathryn Beiser, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine, joined our practice. Dr. Beiser studied zoology and marine biology at Michigan State University as an undergraduate. During veterinary school, she completed her veterinary acupuncture certification in small animal and equine acupuncture through The Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.

The Practice – Dogs, Cats, Rabbits & Pocket Pets
We practice professional, high quality medicine with great client communications and we have FUN! We take the time we need to do it right. Our team is more like family which we think is the best way to work. Expectations for all of our team members are high, to provide the very best compassionate care, client service and education possible. We place great value in honest, loyal and dedicated people and they are rewarded with a great place to work, growing benefits and salaries (on the higher side for the profession). We rely on regular staff meetings to help keep everyone focused on our goals and make adjustments.

As you can imagine, continuing education is also very important to us. Our profession is changing in many ways and at a rapid pace. The continuing education of our dedicated team is how we will confront this change. Our team goal is to continuously get better at what we do and how we do it, in all areas of the practice.

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.

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.
