We have been LOVING seeing some of our clients back in the clinic and getting to meet those of you who we haven't been able to meet properly before. Our mask protocol is working well and we think our patients (like little Andy here) will enjoy getting to introduce their vets to their pet-parents also!


We are trying hard to make sure you know how your appointment will run prior to your visit, but please ask our team before your visit if you have any questions.



Currently, due to space and staffing, we have one Doctor per day seeing in-person appointments in the clinic:

Due to high caseloads, every day, we keep certain "drop-off" appointments available to fit in sick pets. This generally will mean that your pet will stay with us for 2-6 hours. They will be assessed immediately on arriving at the clinic and be seen by the Doctor based on a triage system around our scheduled appointments.


But what do I do when I arrive for my appointment?

Our lobby currently remains closed.

Please park and give us a call when you arrive (734-388-0102). A technician will take a brief history over the phone and go over all your questions & concerns for the doctor.


For curbside appointments, we will meet you at the front door, bring your pet into the clinic and ask you to wait in your car.

For an in-person appointment, we'll take you to your exam room!


Our experienced assistants and Licensed Veterinary Technicians will take your pet's weight and vitals, take any blood needed and perform any ancillary procedures (e.g. nail trim, anal gland expression).


Our Doctors will perform their physical exam and then discuss their exam findings and plan with you.


Whether in-person, over the phone in our parking lot or from your home, a full estimate can be talked through or emailed at any time -- and always before performing more advanced procedures or diagnostic testing.


After your visit, you'll receive a printed or emailed discharge that explains everything we talked about at your visit including any medications dispensed.


As always, please let us know if your pet has specific preferences or if there is anything in particular that you think will help make your visit run more smoothly.

We are missing all our clients smiling faces, and cannot wait until we can welcome you into the clinic again! We have been dealing with high caseloads for many reasons associated with the pandemic (including veterinary clinic closures and postponed procedures). We also have been seeing an abundance of adorable kittens and puppies -- especially poodle-mixes, lovingly nicknamed "Covidoodles"!


Due to this high caseload and the small size of our waiting area, we will continue with our “curbside” appointments for the foreseeable future.





But what does this mean?

  • Please pull up to the curb and give us a call when you arrive (734-388-0102). A technician will take a brief history over the phone and go over all your questions & concerns for the doctor.

  • Please then walk your pet to our door for the technician to retrieve. We do ask all that dogs are on leashes and all cats / pocket pets are in an appropriate carrier - safety first!

  • The technician will grab a weight and vitals on your pet and inform the doctor of everything you have spoke about.

  • Dr. Jen or Dr. Anna will perform a physical exam to assess your pets health. They'll also get cookies and ear rubs as needed!

  • The doctor will then call you to discuss their exam findings as well as all your concerns and questions in detail.

  • Once the doctor has spoke with you about diagnostics, vaccinations and recommended treatments, we will perform them (time for more cookies, pets and praise).

  • Our receptionist will call you to take payment over the phone. A full estimate can be talked through or emailed at any time -- and always before performing more advanced procedures or diagnostic testing.

  • We will then bring your pet back to you, as well as usually a printed discharge form that explains everything we talked about at your visit.

Rest assured that all of your pets are getting lots of love and attention during their visit to MiVet: hanging out in the doctor's office, cuddles and snacks to make their visit as comfortable as possible.


Let us know if your pet has specific preferences or if there is anything in particular that you think will help make your visit run more smoothly.


We can’t wait to see you!

We have been reviewing recent developments with COVID-19, especially with the executive order from Gov. Whitmer today, and we continue to adapt our practices to play our part in keeping our community healthy.


We want you to know that we are still here to help your pets and you through this difficult time. Your pets health and well-being is important to us, and we are not planning on going anywhere. We have been conducting curbside drop-off appointments for a full week, and have rescheduled all our routine and elective appointments and procedures.

We are here and available for emergencies and urgent care, and have a variety of other services available remotely.


Here are some important updates:

- Call us on 734-388-0102 when you arrive at the clinic, so that we can take a clinical history before bringing your pet into the clinic.


- For urgent appointments, phone consultations and medication pick-up, we are asking that clients pay remotely (no cash or checks in most circumstances). We have added multiple payment options on our website including debit/credit card payments, Care Credit and PayPal to make this as smooth as possible!


- Our online store is a good alternative to leaving home for preventives and medication refills as well as treats, toys and diets.


- Purina Proplan and veterinary prescription diets are available through our online Purina portal: www.ProPlanVetDirect.com using clinic ID M2K3E.


- Your pets information, including vaccination information, is available on our online portal. Online booking for phone consultations will be available soon.


- Our opening hours will remain 8-6 weekdays and 9-12 on Saturday mornings - we are not planning to change these.
