The caregivers at Jensen's are the best! They have lovingly walked us through taking two of our beloved pets to the Rainbow Bridge. We felt an amazing amount of love and concern as we grieved our wonderful little pets. Jensen's worked with us for six years as we nursed a diabetic dog, and loved him to the very end. We can't say enough about the quality of care, the concern, and helpfulness we have experienced at Jensen's.

Don & Shirley Ritter

My parents started taking our pets to Jensen's in 1988. They saw us through many years of raising Toy Poodles and Maltese with amazing and compassionate care. I practically grew up there. 🙂 My mother took her precious Standard Poodle Sadie there until her death from kidney failure from the tainted pet food in 2009. I moved 2 1/2 hours away from Petoskey in 2001 and still take my pets to see Dr. Koehler whenever I can. They are a wonderful animal hospital!

Alison Okerblom

My cat was wounded quite severely and the first vet I took him to wouldn't help him unless I gave them $400.00 up front just to start care! I called Jensen's to see if they would help me by either prescribing antibiotics or if that wouldn't help, by putting him down which I didn't want to do unless I really had to. (My cat is my buddy!) Not only did they see us to help, they were compassionate and kind, and gave us treatment options that were affordable! They saved my buddy! I have never met a more caring group of people! The greatest place I have ever seen!!!
