 Ann Arbor Veterinary Emergency & Critical Care

Our History

The Ann Arbor Animal Hospital was established in the 1930s by Dr. Hanawalt. He was a large animal veterinarian who would make barn calls in and around Ann Arbor. In the original structure on Stadium Blvd, he had a hospital for the large animals in his garage, but set aside a room in the house for a small animal practice. The practice was taken over by Dr. Jerry Hergott, who remodeled the practice as one that catered specifically to companion animals.

The current owner, Dr. Linda Griebe, took over the Ann Arbor Animal Hospital in 1982 and eventually transitioned the business to its present focus on not only providing the best care possible for companion animals in our area, but also adding the capacity for Urgent & Emergency Care. The practice expanded from the old house on Liberty to its present building in late 2003, and began 24-hour emergency care in mid-2004. In early 2023 we ended our overnight ER Service, though our Urgent Care still treats sick and injured pets, including life-threatening conditions, during our regular business hours.
