★★★★★ The techs and vets here care more about your pets than anywhere else in Washtenaw county. If you want healing for your animals, bring them hereP C.P C. ★★★★★ Always good food and serviceJanet H.Janet H. ★★★★★ I want to thank the staff from the bottom of my heart. Our Coco was 17 years old and had cancer. It was such a difficult decision to make but Dr Janovsky, Samantha and all the other staff that I can’t remember their names were so kind-hearted. They were so caring and supportive during our difficult decision to have him cross over the rainbow bridge. They gave us all the time we needed and checked on us frequently. They treated our baby as if he was their own with such gentleness and concern for his well being right down to his last heartbeat💔 I cannot thank everyone enough at Whittaker Road Animal Clinic. You truly were a blessing to our family.Christine D.Christine D. ★★★★★ I really appreciated how they prioritized my cat’s stress levels and explained different treatment options clearly. They also prepared quotes for treatment plans I wanted to think about.Megan R.Megan R. ★★★★★ New to the region, required a "vet" and they scheduled me within days. I own a Shar Pei, unique dog, most vet's have never seen one. Dr. Wuerth was excellent, and very knowledgeable relating to the specifics of the breed. Her and her assistance entered the room and immediately sat on the floor, or at ground level which I have not witnessed previously. I'm guessing having adults tower over them a dog prefers this approach. They, the staff was awesome!, Thanks...Paul A.Paul A. ★★★★★ I had a wonderful experience on my first visit to Whittaker Road Animal Clinic. I followed my favorite vet to this clinic after seeing her at a different location for the past few years. My puppy had a sensitive issue and the front desk was accommodating and got me in to see her the same day. By the time I arrived, they had already requested and received my puppy's records from our previous clinic. There is a really nice vibe at this place. The people are very friendly and helpful and the experience was positive from the initial call to the visit and checkout. I love my vet and would follow her anywhere, but it was really nice to find her in a great place.Laurie B.Laurie B. ★★★★★ I had to put my boy down today sadly & I was in a hurry to find a place to do it considering his health was deteriorating fast & our normal vet didn’t have any openings. They were able to squeeze me in on a Saturday & the staff made my boy & I comfortable and treated us with love during this tough time. Thank you for making a very hard day less stressful and thank you for showing us thoughtfulness & exceptional care. I highly recommend them & will be taking our other animals there from now on!Brittany K.Brittany K. ★★★★★ Went here for the first time today and already my experience is 20x better than my previous vet. I wish I would have switched years ago.Empathetic, compassionate, considerate and very knowledgeable, every thing you want in a veterinarian. Dr. Janovsky and her tech Alyssa were absolutely lovely. The office is very clean and the chairs are actually comfy! Not the horrible hard benches I was used to sitting on.Thank you very much.Kat GKat G ★★★★★ Absolutely great place and staffDustin D.Dustin D. ★★★★★ They took such good care of our little kitty tonight. Very comprehensive care. They really took their time with her and got her to eat again and got her less dehydrated. Dr. J and her tech were so knowledgeable about cats and it really felt like they were giving us the best care I've ever seen at a vet's office. I have high trust in them and their abilities and that our kitty will be happy and healthy soon again. She's already perked up and seems to be eating again with no problems. She's walking around too when she's only been laying around for the last few days. They got us in quickly too. Everyone else was booking so far out and we were afraid our cat wouldn't make it that long. They made it a point to get us in quickly. Thank you so much. We're so relieved now. Came home and cried tears of joy for our fur baby. 💖 We'll be using them for sure for our pets' care from here on out.Case H.Case H. ★★★★★ This clinic has been a God send for my two dogs. I have a 16 year old dog and a newly adopted puppy. I fell in love with my puppy but did not understand the magnitude of his health needs. He was sick and I didn’t even know. He slept a lot and wasn’t active. At his first immunization visit, the vet noticed he had a double ear infection, heart worms and a few other serious but curable things. The vets saw me monthly to check on the pups progress and even called me at home.To keep costs down I saw vet techs there who were highly knowledgeable about my pup and his issues under the guidance of the vet. The staff is kind and gave me options on scheduling appointments and medication refillswhich can be done from their website. I’m sorry- no review can convince me this is a bad place for pets with my older dogs arthritis the staff has literally come out to our pick-up and examined him so he didn’t have to move as much😌🥹. It’s Whittaker Road clinic for me👏Keya S.Keya S. ★★★★★ Used to come here a decade ago. And now I am coming back for a better experience than where I'm currently taking my pets. Picked here for my year old anxious German shepherd. They did wonders for him and did the leg work to get his prior records that I forgot the whole time they handled him with care. Ultimately treating his mental health needs that may have been overlooked. Thank you to this office for all their work and love for our fur babyNnlyak A.Nnlyak A. ★★★★★ They are the best.

I am so glad I made the switch, Brutus did amazing and was able to be fully examined for the first time in almost 3 years. Thank you so much.Christine W.Christine W. ★★★★★ Wonderful staff, efficient, timely, caring, professional.anna F.anna F. ★★★★★ I highly recommend this animal clinic.

The gave us the answers we needed to her declining health. Doctor Donato and her staffs kindness and compassion during the loss of Lily meant so much to us. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a great place to take your pet.Elaine C.Elaine C. ★★★★★ All our four cats have visited this clinic. The staff and veterinarians are great, very caring and knowledgeable. We moved here from Dallas and had trouble finding a great vet who was also accepting new patients. One of our cats has asthma so important to have great care for him. Very thankful for staff and veterinarians.Odette P.Odette P. ★★★★★ Absolutely love this place!! The entire staff is amazing. They work so hard for their furry patients and the humans who the furries have chosen to bow down to their every wish and command. I will not go anywhere else.Ashley T.Ashley T. ★★★★★ Every time we take our puppy Kilo in, it's a good experience.

I definitely recommend the friendly folks here to care for your pets, you can tell they love them as much as we do!Darian M.Darian M. ★★★★★ Really grateful for how empathetic, kind, and dedicated each vet & staff member have been to my animals. Dealing with kitties in pain can be no fun, but they still treated him with respect and kindness no matter how angry he was to be there at the moment. Thanks to their expert care plan, my little guy is already coming back to his usual self. Thank you so much, I can’t tell you how much me & my family appreciate you.ShelbyShelby ★★★★★ They were kind and efficient.Kim M. H.Kim M. H. ★★★★★ Love this place!

I was grateful and appreciated the advice that they gave.Jacob S.Jacob S. ★★★★★ Brand new clean and convenient location. Very nice doctor.Brittany B.Brittany B. ★★★★★ We are grateful for the staff of Whittaker Road Animal Clinic, as they helped us say goodbye to our pet with such genuine compassion and care. They have a private family entrance and room to use which helped us take the time we needed to grieve. A few days after saying goodbye, we received a sympathy card with handwritten messages of sympathy by the whole staff. We will, eventually, get another dog, and we will most certainly use Whittaker Road Animal Clinic for all its health needs.John S.John S. ★★★★★ This clinic is the only place I'll be going now! I could go on about them all day. They greeted my pet in a gentle, respectful way to help reduce stress. When the examined her, they took my concerns seriously and even pointed out thing I didn't notice. When they were done, they explained everything to me, answered my questions patiently, and then went over options for treatment. They broke down what they wanted to do and the costs associated with each step. In the end, they performed a procedure quickly and explained the post-op care to me in detail before sending us home. My pet is recovering well and when I take her back for her 2 week post-op check up I plan to schedule routine visits for both of my pets because I don't want to take them anywhere else.Riley L.Riley L. ★★★★★ Sweet caring staff!Wes K.Wes K. ★★★★★ This was the 1st time I took my dog to WRAC. My dog is very cautious about people when he meets them for the first time. The staff gave him a chance to sniff them and get comfortable with them while they talked to me about what was going to happen at the appointment. I had some medical concerns regarding my dog and they gave me some at-home first step options to try and resolve the issue before having to do something major and I appreciate it that.Kaycie J.Kaycie J. ★★★★★ Rebekah Rubino was wonderful with the unfortunate passing of my moms dog, offered amazing bed side manor and helped us through the process.Speed R.Speed R. ★★★★★ This is a quality location with a vet who is educated & cares.

They have seen both of my dogs throughout their lives and now my kitty too. This was my first experience with going into their new facility. I like it okay. It's new, clean and had a more modern feel to it. I'm sure they have more space and many rooms to do what they gotta do there. The staff has always been a joy to work with and you can tell they all really love our home beasts. Dr.Wurth is my go to veterinarian but I've seen others also depending on availability.

Every time I take my fur babies to the Whittaker Road Animal Clinic, they get the best care. They genuinely care about our pets. And, always so friendly and show much love to the pets. I would highly recommend this clinic.

Kelli C.

The staff at Whittaker Road Animal Clinic is why even after we moved away from Ypsilanti we still drive back for our vet appointments. The care that is given to my pup is excellent. My dog Eli loves going to the vet, they treat him like he’s their own.

Theresa W.

Excellent caring staff, Great Dr’s and always try to do the right thing for your furbabies. They are there for you when you need them, they helped us get through some very rough times with our 3 boys and a little one. We’re very grateful. Don’t hesitate, give them a try.

Greg S.

We adopted a puppy from the Michigan humane society and we took her to get a check up here. The staff from the very beginning has been very helpful. Just this past week we took our 10-month-old puppy back for another check-up and again very helpful, the vet asked if we had any concerns and she addressed them and what we can do to help. We have found the “perfect” veterinary clinic for our family!

Jimmy S.

I was nervous to take my dog to a new vet, but I am so happy I found this place! The staff are so friendly and welcoming and made my anxious dog feel safe and loved. They discuss everything with you thoroughly and give you their honest opinion- whether if benefits them or not. I really like that before any procedures are started, you see the cost and breakdown of everything. It feels good to know what you are paying for and not worried until the very end what it will all cost. Glad to have great people to look after my best friend!
