State-of-the-art pet care you can trust in Elk Rapids


by veterinary_clinic_traverse_city 30. March 2016 02:13

Dr. Eric Peck and the staff at Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital have been providing a full range of veterinary services for families in Elk Rapids and surrounding communities for many years now. 

A graduate of Michigan State University, Dr. Peck has been practicing locally for more than 20 years and has owned Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital since it opened in 2009.  His philosophy of personalized care has been augmented by a drive to stay abreast of advancements in veterinary medicine throughout his career.  

For proof, look no further than Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital being the first veterinary facility in the region to introduce MLS Laser Therapy.  This state-of-the-art treatment is highly effective in treating arthritis pain, tendonitis, joint pain, back pain, sinusitis and for more rapid healing of wounds and in post operative situations. 

“Laser Therapy increases circulation to joints and affected tissues which lessens inflammation and pain.  Because we use a Class IV laser, the photon energy is able to penetrate down to deeper tissues, providing even greater relief for pets,” says Dr. Peck. 

“In addition to dramatic results after just a couple of sessions, using Laser Therapy is non-invasive and does not require a pet to be sedated.  And, the average treatment takes no more than 12 minutes, at absolutely no risk to our patients,” he added. 

Located in Williamsburg and providing pet chemotherapy services to Traverse City, Elk Rapids, Acme, Kalkaska and nearby communities, Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital is a fully equipped regional facility serving the routine and emergency needs of pet owners since 2009.

A wellness program is an important part of your dog’s overall health

Dogs are faithful, beautiful and loving pets that are an integral part of millions of families throughout the country.   Many families regard them as another child, taking them on vacations, outings and even including them in things like Christmas cards.  Needless to say, owning a dog brings many added benefits to home life. 

But like any other member of the family, dogs do get sick, they need routine and preventative health care and look to you to provide it for them. 

“Just like going to the doctor for an annual physical or a dentist for a teeth cleaning every six months, it’s important to also bring your dog in for wellness exams on a regular basis,” says Dr. Eric Peck, owner and hospital director of Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital, a dog and pet clinic that serves Traverse City and nearby communities. 

Wellness care allows a vet to detect a health issue with your dog early on, making it easier to treat and giving your dog the best chance for recovery while also saving you money.  The old adage of an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure definitely applies here. 

Wellness care can also include making sure your dog is up to date with important vaccinations for rabies, distemper, hepatitis, parvo, bordetella and others.   Heartworm prevention, deworming and even nail clipping are also important parts of a preventative program for your dog that will keep them happy, healthy and important parts of your family for many years to come.

Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital is Traverse City’s premier avian veterinary service


by veterinary_clinic_traverse_city 16. March 2016 01:56

North Michigan Veterinary Hospital can treat all kinds of animals and exotics, in Traverse City and in nearby communities, this fully equipped regional facility has earned a reputation as the premier facility for treating avian pets of all shapes and sizes.  Dr. Peck and his staff have more than 20 years of experience in treating birds and are frequently sought out for:

  • General wellness, diet and avian housing issues
  • Annual check-ups, including baseline testing, to develop a health history that can be used to treat possible future illnesses and diseases
  • Routine beak, wing and nail trims
  • Physical exams that will include looking for abnormalities in feathers, skin, beak, eyes, ears, nose and throat
  • Infectious disease screening
  • Cytology procedures including taking cultures of the cloaca, crop or choana
  • Radiograph (x-rays) to assess the internal condition of your bird
  • Minor surgical procedures 

“Owning a bird as a pet is not the same as owning a cat or a dog.  Their anatomy and physiology is very different from other animals, and caring for any member of the avian family requires specialized knowledge above and beyond what a regular veterinarian knows,” according to Dr. Peck. 

Located in Williamsburg and providing comprehensive veterinary services to Traverse City, Elk Rapids, Acme, Kalkaska and nearby communities, Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital is a fully equipped regional facility serving the routine and emergency needs of pet owners since 2009.
