About Animal Medical Center of Traverse City

The Animal Medical Center of Traverse City was established in 1982 by Doctors Tom and Karen Mertaugh. We are very proud to have preserved our one hundred year old “BIG BLUE FARMHOUSE”.  Over the past thirty-one years our practice has evolved into a modern companion animal veterinary clinic.  Our compassionate team maintains the highest standards of pet care with a full range of medical services for your animal friends.

Our goal is to improve your pet’s quality of life through routine wellness care, good nutrition, vaccinations, and deworming.  Early detection of any disease process is vital to ensure the best outcome of treatment.  Our practice offers an in-house laboratory, pharmacy, dentistry/dental radiography, ultrasound, radiography, and surgical facility to expedite your pet’s diagnosis and treatment.  We are here to provide you with personalized, compassionate service.

Our team is looking forward to being your pet health care advocates!
