  • What You Mean to Us

    -Paul Cindy Henderson from Traverse City, MI
    Pet Name: Britta, Dukie, Abby, Babe, Peanut, Cinnamin

    Pet Image Cindy and I think that all of you at Cherry Bend should know what you mean to us on this Thanksgiving holiday. You have been much more than simply the local Vet Hospital, you have become our friends, our support, and our encouragement that the World is truly a giving society. Dr. Korten, Beth Clute, Heather and the entire staff have provided our loving dogs (all 6) premium services, love, care, and warmth beyond what is expected in any veterinary clinic. You brought our Great Dane Britta back to life for us and have extended her quality of life through these holidays. You provided life saving surgery to our Red Healer Dukie and made sure that he gets the best care possible at Michigan State University Veterinary Hospital. Under Dr. Korten's personal care you have allowed our oldest dogs (Babe & Cinnamin) to function comfortably at 18 years of age. For us, you have worked miracles, solved mysteries, relieved pain, and most of all, extended our precious time with our loving dog family, all six of them. Dr. Korten, Beth, Heather, and the entire staff continuously show us a compassionate, caring, and professional service that we have not experienced anywhere else. On this Thanksgiving we thank all of you at Cherry Bend for all the hard work, dedication, loyalty, and love you have shown to our 6 dogs, and to Cindy and I. We will forever be in your debt. We wish you all the very best always!
    Paul & Cindy Henderson


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.
