Handling Pet Emergencies in West Branch, MI

CVC is a general practice facility staffed to handle a normal, full schedule. Often, we cannot give the care to our current appointments that they deserve if we take on pet emergencies. We understand that emergencies happen and when they do, you and your pet need help. Our team is happy to assist when we are able, as well as recommend a couple of regional facilities that are equipped for emergencies. CVC is not officially connected in any form with these facilities, but they are what Northern Michigan has to offer and we want you to have their information when you need it!
