Veterinary Urgent Care for the Pets
of Northeast Michigan

Switzer Veterinary Clinic

Thunder Bay Veterinary Urgent Care provides medical and surgical care for emergencies and urgent illness or injury in dogs, cats, and other pets of Northeast Michigan. Our doctors will diagnose and treat your pet so that you can get back to playing fetch or taking a long nap in the sunshine.

We are an AAHA-accredited urgent care practice located in Alpena, MI. We offer care to the communities of Northeast Michigan, including: Hillman, Atlanta, Ossineke, Cheboygan, Mackinaw, Gaylord, Lewiston, Mio, Lincoln, Harrisville, Tawas and Oscoda. Thunder Bay Veterinary Urgent Care acts as a healthcare bridge to provide urgent and emergency care over the weekend and some holidays when most family veterinarians are closed or unavailable.

We’re Here For You

Our team is made up of experienced, compassionate veterinarians, licensed veterinary technicians, and assistants who are dedicated to providing exceptional care for your animals. We are here for you when your pet needs us the most!

Exceptional, Compassionate Care

Only 12% of veterinary practices in the United States are able to earn accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). We’re one of them! Accreditation means that our practice voluntarily adheres to and has been evaluated on AAHA’s nearly 1,000 strident guidelines covering every aspect of veterinary medicine.

Dr. Anna-Marie Struble is the primary veterinarian at the clinic, and is also a fear free certified professional. Fear Free®’s mission is to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in pets—especially during a medical visit. We strive to be better for you and your pet every step of the way.

Open On Weekends

Emergencies always seem to happen on the weekends. Your dog ate your shoe. Your cat is coughing and has a hard time breathing. What are you supposed to do? We are open and want to help.

Call ahead at (989) 340-0975 to discuss your pet’s symptoms and schedule an appointment.
