VCA Cherry Bend Animal Hospital

Dr. Leslie Littlefield, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Michigan State University


I was born and raised in Traverse City.
In May of 2000, I graduated from MSU college of veterinary medicine & one week later I married my husband Jim. I practiced small animal medicine & surgery in Sparta MI near Grand Rapids for one year.

In July, 2001 my husband and I made the move back to Traverse City with our Welsh Corgi "Bea".

I am very excited to be working in Traverse City and at VCA Cherry Bend Animal Hospital.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
