Our doctor is available on weekends for active clients by emergency only. Northwoods Pet Care Center is a full-service veterinary medical facility, located in Mt Pleasant, MI. The professional and courteous staff at Northwoods Pet Care Center seeks to provide the best possible medical care, surgical care and dental care for their highly-valued patients.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

What are your special plans for the day? Sam and Griz will be spending the day eating breakfast in bed, napping 8 hours straight, and basking in the sun wishing they were chasing squirrels. ❤️🐾

We will be closed today from 12-1 today for a staff meeting.

As of March, we will be closed the 1st and the 15th of each month from 12-1 for staff meetings.

First and foremost we want to thank you all for being so patient as we have tried to launch and navigate a new interactive app for you all to use. At this time, Pet Desk has not been able to resolve some of the extensive appointment reminding errors that you have been reporting to us. It is for this reason we feel as though we must find a more adequate fit, to better serve you. Pet Desk will be cancelled, and we will continue to search for an app that gives you all the ease in which you are seeking. We are so sorry for any misunderstandings, or inconveniences this issues may have caused you. We look forward to presenting you with a new option soon!

If only we could be Leo cat.... His favorite pastimes are napping, terrorizing the other cats in the house, some more napping, bolting outdoors with lightening speed, munching everyone else’s food before they can finish (including the humans.)

Today was a busy day here at Northwoods. We had so many great patients today, this guy pretty much refused to wait in a kennel for surgery. So he spent his morning bouncing from person to person. What a cutie! 😍🐾 #pethealth #northwoodspetcarecenter #dog #veterinarymedicine

Can Dogs Eat Peanut Butter?

Does your pup like peanut butter!? Did you know there is a National peanut butter day!

Make sure you’re giving your pup the right stuff! 🐾

Peanut butter is a common treat that owners feed to their dogs. As a pet owner, I know my dogs love it. It's like dessert for your dog, but is it safe for them to eat it? The answer may surprise you.

Don't forget to ask us about Trupanion! If you would like more information on what they offer, you can visit their website, or stop in for a brochure prior to an appointment. But who doesn't love 30 days of free emergency coverage?

ANNOUNCEMENT! 🐾

We have some exciting news!

Northwoods has joined forces with one of the leading pet insurance companies- Trupanion!

#pethealth #trupanion #petinsurance

We realize that 2020 was “ruff” so we did some digging.

We often have times where medical emergencies and non routine surgical procedures just simply cannot be paid for by a pet owner. We get it, and we know that it doesn’t mean you love your pet any less than the next person.

Trupanion pays 90% of all non routine care for any and all, non preexisting issues. This means, if your pet develops allergies but does so after you sign up with trupanion, once you meet your chosen deductible, those expenses are covered FOR LIFE! ACL repair needed? No problem, they pay 90% for that too!

We want to ensure that we expand our base to provide you with more options. In the end your pet’s Heath is what we are here for. Ask us next time you’re in about how to get started.

They also have a same day exam offer. If you activate it within 24 hours of their office visit, you get 30 days of free coverage with a $250 deductible, and no start up fees.

Staff spotlight, Tuesday edition!

We had a popular request that we keep up with our meet the staffs after tech week!

Jessica is a familiar face around Northwoods, she shadowed at Northwoods in high school, and later interned while she was in college. After graduating and passing her board examinations to become a licensed Veterinary Nurse, she came to Northwoods to work as one of our LVT’s.

After 5 years at Northwoods, she is now Practice Manager. While she LOVES all the patients that visit the hospital, she has found a new love as well, for managing the hospital!

Favorite part of her job?

1. Still placing IV catheters....
2. Supporting the support staff. Among many things, having a support staff that feels appreciated and valued is essential to an efficient team. ❤️

Fun Fact? She flew shotgun for the first time at age 2! In an ultralight. How neat.

Next pet? Definitely a frenchie, or a horse!

What does she do in her spare time?

Spends time going on new adventures or snuggled up at home playing games with her family. (Their most played game... the floor is lava & Vet Clinic.)

Did you know?

It is no secret that Doc has many talents. If you look close enough, you will find his woodworking skills displayed in custom pieces throughout the clinic! Just recently he began creating custom urns for your kiddos.

If you or a loved one is interested in a custom hardwood urn, inquire with either Doc, or our support staff. We want to ensure that your pet has the very best, from pediatric stages and even after they cross the rainbow 🌈 bridge.

Happy Caturday!

Miss Agnes the cat came from none other than Dalis Hitchcock at Dalis to the Rescue!

She is the ultimate trash panda AND princess. She enjoys reading books with her toddler friend, and taking long naps in her cat tree.

We hope you all are enjoying today as much as Miss Agnes. ❤️🐾

PATIENT PUPDATE!

Do you remember this cutie from last year? He came to Northwoods as a tiny pup with an upset tummy, unable to keep anything down. After a diagnostic work up, it was determined that he had a gastrointestinal obstruction!

Those darn toys... they’re just too fun. Anywho, today, he was in for grooming and we just couldn’t help but share his handsome self with all of you! Boy do we love his kisses. 😘 🐾

Seriously though, aren't these the cutest little babies??

As much as we adore baskets full of puppies, don't forget that one of these babies is 10+ year commitment, not just a Christmas gift. If you're thinking about adding to your home, make sure you have the essentials, and set up a vet appointment prior to bringing your new baby home. Set yourself, and your new addition, up for success!

Drop those pet pictures below!

Is it Friday yet? This week has been a busy one here at Northwoods! As always we cannot thank our clients enough for being so fantastic!

A couple highlights this week:

Petlocity app will be discontinued as of Dec 31 (per the Petlocity company) we will be honoring all rewards until the end of the year when they would typically reset.

We have an in clinic and online Christmas giveaway coming your way next week! Winners will be announced by New Year’s Eve!

We are also looking for suggestions for the new year! Do you have an idea 💡that would improve your or your kiddos customer service experience during your visit? If so, send us a message on Facebook!

Lastly, we will be looking for “secret” shoppers in the new year! We want you to know that your input is important to us and we thought this would be a fun way to do so! So stay tuned for that!

Monday was a great first day back! We want to thank you all for your patience, as we have also been so eager to see you and your pet’s once more!

Stay tuned for some exciting changes! So far we have decided to amp up our tech appointments, dedicating an entire room to them! This will allow for more medical appointments to be seen by doc, while still spending one on one time with you and your pet at appointments!

What is a tech appointment you ask? These will include things such as boosters, heartworm tests, annual lab work (still approved by a doctor), nail trims, and so much more! It’s safe to say we are back, and ready to hit the ground running!

Grooming is still heavily booked, and we have staff working daily to reschedule our cancelled appointments. Grooming does resume as of today! YAY!!

We will also have some holiday giveaways coming soon! For now, enjoy this cute image below of Leo the cat!

We are back up and running! We are so excited to be back today, and are ready to see you and your kiddos soon!

We have sent a mass email to our clients about our temporary closure. At this time, we have been notified that our staff was exposed to COVID19 and as a result, we have had multiple staff members test positive. It is for this reason we are executing a temporary shut down. All appointments and procedures scheduled from December 1st - 14th have been canceled, we will be reaching out to further instruct those individuals.

Furthermore, we will be working from home during this time. After today, you will be able to call our office and speak with a staff member, we will be able to triage and direct you from there! We so appreciate your understanding and patience and hope you all are well and healthy.

**If you have visited our office in the last week, please contact your primary care physician for any potential exposure concerns. At this time, the health dept has been contacted. We have barriers in place and have taken the necessary precautions to limit face to face time with clients to under 15 minutes in efforts to limit exposure in situations like this.

We wanted to touch base on a few things as we head into this new order. First and foremost, we hope that everyone is remaining safe and healthy during this time.

We are allowing 1 person per appointment, into the building, we do require a mask be worn, and that you practice safe social distancing while here.

We ask that you come inside upon arrival. If there is not an available exam room, we will take your number and sign you into our sign in sheet, and ask that you wait in your vehicle.

We are booking out to the end of the year for appointments as well as grooming, therefore we ask that you please be patient as we try to accommodate pet emergencies alongside our wellness appointments. We promise to do our best to get you and your kiddo's in.

If you have been directly exposed to COVID19, tested positive in the last 14 days, are feeling ill, or have been to a social gathering, we ask that you call to reschedule your appointment.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding, we again hope that you all are staying safe and healthy.

**If you are concerned about prescriptions or food during this time, and are in need but cannot come in, please ask us how we can assist you via our online stores to have these items shipped to your home.

11/16/2020

It appears we are having some phone outages in the area again today! 🐾🐾 We will keep you updated should they turn back on.

They have cared for all my pets for more than twenty years. Always kind and caring.
Great job Alyssa. Zoey looks great. Thank you.
We brought our sweet Mae in for a dental cleaning and were told by 3 other vets she would need teeth pulled. Mae had terrible breath that when she yawned or licked her paws you wanted a gas mask! She snored so loud and often had weeping eyes. I dropped her off in the morning and notified them she also had a wart we would like removed. They said that would be no problem and took it off while she was under! The staff was so friendly and called me later in the afternoon to let me know she did great and was waking up. Much to my surprise she didnt need ANY teeth pulled, just a deep clean! When I picked her up she was a bit groggy from the anesthesia but her breath was so fresh and I swear her teeth were gleaming!! Her teeth that were once brown and full of tartar and plaque-- that I and other vets assumed were rotten, just needed some elbow grease and a good descaling!! She was literally a new dog the next day! She was running around like a crazy woman and clearly felt so much better! Dr Kolesar and his staff gave Mae a new zest for life and a beautiful shiny smile! We will definitely be doing annual cleanings and cannot say enough good things about Mae's experience!!! They did fabulous and gave our old girl a newfound happiness (and fresh breath!)
Thanks for helping Dalis!
Thank you so much for the sweet card and paw charm. Totally unexpected!
Poncho went for his grooming appointment at Northwood's. Poncho came home with Boosters collar on. Thank goodness for the phone number on the tags (which we don't have on Poncho's collar) we made the swap and I got to meet Buster. Just thought it was funny and wanted to share.
