I have been waiting for Dr. Forbes to open her own veterinary office here in A2 for a long time! Finally last February, she and two other wonderful women doctors actually did it (all are working mothers no less!) I am so glad that “compassionate care" has truly arrived in Ann Arbor! I refer them every chance I get.
Dr. Forbes and I first met when she was an ER vet over fifteen years ago and I have been taking my animals to her ever since. She miraculously pulled my dear Kofi cat back from the brink of death after he was hit by a car, making tough, decisive calls and letting me be present and informed the entire way. Kofi went on to live many happy years giving us much joy as well as much gratitude for Dr. Forbes Herculean efforts. She has been with us through the life and passing of two very dear four leggeds.
Over the years I have been constantly amazed at how smart and unbelievably knowledgeable Dr. Forbes is as well. Her vast ER experience certainly gives her an edge over many... but what drew me to her most was her uncanny ability to sense what my animals felt and needed and her compassion for their suffering. Since opening their doors, CCAH has been my ‘go to’ place for veterinary care and I have been predictably impressed. (It is the only place that my GSD do, Maxx, can visit and not be nervous... No kidding!) They take great care of him including locating scarce resources and medications he must have to survive. If you are a "high maintenance" pet owner like me, (with or without a high maintenance pet) this is definitely where you want to be. They soothe frayed nerves like no one I've experienced.
Finally, the docs at CCAH also bring a level of expertise and experience that allows them to avoid the discomfort and expense of stressful and unneeded procedures. I find they are much less interested in racking up big fees than they are in focusing on individual patient comfort and care. In my opinion CCAH is “heads and tails” above the rest (hee hee) and believe me, I’ve been to many over the years. If you want a warm, loving and highly rewarding experience for your pet, I highly recommend you check out Compassionate Care Animal Hospital!
This was my first visit to Compassionate Care Animal Hospital for my adopted cat, Georgy. We were immediately greeted and taken to a room where Georgy could relax and get comfortable. Michelle and Jessica gave Georgy a gentle and thorough exam and answered all my questions & concerns. I was very happy with the service and care taken with my cat. I'm looking forward to a long relationship with this great new Vet practice!
