Welcome to Our Client Family!

Here’s a little snapshot of what to expect at your first visit…

When you first come in you and your pet(s) will be welcomed by our receptionist. We will do everything we can to make you and your pet(s) comfortable and at home! Please plan to be at the hospital 15 to 20 minutes before the appointment time of your first appointment. This will allow us both time to get through the normal paperwork and the normal questions and answers.

We offer many different ways to communicate for appointment reminders, vaccine reminders or general communication. We can e-mail, text, call or mail. We will ask your preference during this appointment. We can change these preferences at any time you wish. We will also ask you to provide us with your current contact information at this time.

What to bring with you:

To get started, we need to build your pet’s record. Please bring:

  • Your pet(s)… We will love to meet and get to know them!
  • All of your pet’s medical history records. It is very helpful to have this information prior to your first appointment if possible. If you need to get records from your previous veterinarian, we have a form that we can fill out and fax to that office. If you wish, you may contact your previous veterinarian and ask them to fax the record to us at (fax) 231-935-1525.
  • We will ask you to Click Here to fill out our Online “Welcome” sheet. If you can fill out and submit this form before you arrive, it will save you some time and it is one less thing to do when you get here… If not, that’s fine, we will have one for you when you arrive.
  • A stool sample from each pet that is less than 24 hours old.
  • Bring any and all medication containers of the products you are giving your pet(s).
  • Also check your parasite preventative (Heartworm, Flea & Tick) and other medication stock in case you need refills.

What else to expect:

At the first appointment we will take your pet’s photo for his/her patient record. We do this periodically throughout your pet’s life and/or as medical conditions change.

Whether your appointment is for a new puppy/kitten exam, a wellness exam, or due to illness, plan on spending about 45 minutes with the Doctor. It is very important that we get to know you and your pet(s) and you get to know us!

After your appointment you will be given a tour of our hospital and meet all of our entire staff. They all enjoy meeting and getting to know our new clients and patients.

Thank you for choosing Companion Animal Hospital. We look forward to meeting you and your family.

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.

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.

~ 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.
