We love pets!

Being a family-owned and operated business, we’re able to offer you that personal touch you’ve been looking for in a veterinary hospital. Our goal is to make all of our customers happy, while helping animals to live healthier and happier lives. 

At Griffith Veterinary Hospital, we really care about the well-being of your pets, which is why we offer a wide variety of services. We practice out-patient services, as well as a wide variety of surgery. We are not a 24/7 facility; we are a family practice. If you have an animal emergency, we recommend that you seek emergency services as quickly as possible from a qualified animal emergency facility.

Friday 8am-6pm (Friday afternoon may be a relief veterinarian, call to see.)
Saturday 8am-noon (Saturdays book-up fast!)

But please call ahead to be sure, since hours may vary for holidays, etc. We want to make sure that we can be here for you, so we prefer to work by appointment whenever possible. 

We are located at 240 Jennings Road, in Whitmore Lake, Michigan (which runs parallel to US-23). We are highly visible from US-23, between 6 Mile Road and Barker Road (on the WEST side of the interstate). You'll recognize us as the "log cabin on the lake", as our building is log and Wildwood Lake is outside our backyard!

We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard and Discover as methods of payment. We also proudly accept Care Credit. Payment is expected at time of service. If you are interested in Care Credit, please contact us to find out more! You can also visit the following website to learn more and apply for Care Credit:

In case you're curious:
We are not affiliated with any other veterinary hospitals, although others do exist with similar names. We are the "Griffith Veterinary Hospital" that is located in Whitmore Lake, run by Dr. Barbara Griffith, DVM.

All information on this website is subject to change, not excluding services, offerings, hours, and even employees. We strive to maintain our website and keep it as current as possible, but please remember that procedures and protocols are ever-changing in this line of work... so please feel free to call us or stop by to ask any questions that you may have, or to gain the most up-to-date information.
Does your pet seem to be in pain but you can't figure out the exact problem? Call to ask us about our advanced thermal imaging, which can show us where inflammation may be coming from! Prices are reasonable and often give our pets a "voice"/way of sharing their issue with us so that we can help them faster and more effectively!
We want our patients to be comfortable! Some patients benefit from natural joint supplements while others do well on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Please resist the urge to reach for your own medicine cabinet, as many human medications are unsafe for animals. One of our favorite options for pain management is called therapeutic laser (the same technology used in many human medical practices) to reduce inflammation without medication or surgery!
Remember, fleas and ticks are still an issue in winter! Year-around flea/tick and Heartworm prevention are key for overall health and wellness for both dogs and cats. Many people spend a lot of money on expensive pet foods aimed at helping skin problems...and while that can be beneficial in some cases, remember that the #1 cause of dermatitis is STILL fleas.
