Welcome to Griffith Veterinary Hospital, Whitmore Lake
Providing cutting-edge veterinary services in a family-like atmosphere for over 30 years. From annual checkups to surgical procedures, we've got your best friends covered from nose to tail!
Are allergies preventing your dog or cat from enjoying each day to its fullest? Let us help!
From nutriceutical (pharmaceutical -grade nutrition) to powerful anti-histamines and anti-inflammatories, we'll help find the best fit for your individual pet. Not sure what's causing the discomfort? May we suggest ALLERGY TESTING? It's as simple as a blood sample that we send to a specialized laboratory... and you'll receive a detailed list of environmental and food allergens specific to your individual pet! If the allergies are avoidable, that's great! if not, we can have specialized allergy injections formulated to help desensitize your pet from their individual allergies. No need to suffer, get out there and enjoy the day!
Q: What is zoonotic disease?
A: Any disease that is transmissible from animals to people.
We love that vaccines and preventative measures for our animal friends can sometimes incidentally protect our human friends as well! While we can only advise you on animal health, we encourage clients to read about zoonotic disease from the CDC and to ask their own healthcare provider for helpful information!
Being a family-owned and operated business, we’re able to offer you that personal, small-town feel you’ve been looking for in a veterinary hospital!
We are not a franchise, we are a small business based upon the simple premise of helping animals one pet at a time.
While our top priority is excellence in veterinary care for our beloved animal friends, we care equally as much about making your experiences with us just as excellent!
At Griffith Veterinary Hospital, we genuinely 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, all for small animals (dogs, cats, rabbits, etc.). 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 as close to your emergency as possible.
Our typical hours are:
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! Google Map:
We accept cash, check, and ALL major credit cards as forms 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: https://www.carecredit.com/vetmed/
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 Barbara Griffith-Watkins.

URGENT, PLEASE READ:
During this time of social-distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we ARE still open and conducting all of the same services and procedures you have come to expect from us throughout the years. We are in a unique position to remain open for the following reasons:
We are the only animal Rabies test center for the county at this time. We have some of our staff strategically vaccinated against Rabies because we perform this pivotal role for human health. Equally, we must be able to provide essential services that protect our community, such as preventative Rabies vaccines (Rabies vaccines are required by State law for all dogs). We also feel it is our duty to be able to provide essential medications, such as medications that treat parasites which can be a human health risk (many parasites are transmissable from pet-to-person).
HOWEVER, we need your help to protect our team so that we can continue to provide these essential services; If you are ill or have been around someone who is, please call us first to determine if there is anything that we can do over the phone. If you come into our office and appear to be sick (signs of sneezing, coughing, etc), we reserve the right to ask you to please leave. It is our goal to not let this pandemic influence the quality of care that we provide, and that means having all hands on-deck and healthy. Thank you for your understanding. Wishing you and your pets a healthy month!
