Welcome to East Lansing Veterinary Clinic

Thank you for choosing East Lansing Veterinary Clinic!

We are a small animal veterinary clinic located in East Lansing, Michigan and have been serving the area since 1970. We are committed to providing high quality and compassionate care for your pet.

We care for dogs and cats routinely and now with the addition of a new Doctor on staff, we care for exotics and pocket pets as well!

We understand that your pet is part of your family and will treat your pet as if they were our own.

Our Business Statement on Operations during COVID-19

We ask that at this time if you have been exposed to someone who has been travelling, feeling ill or experiencing any fever, cough or any other symptoms to please reschedule or postpone your pet’s appointment.

The safety of our clients, patients and staff is our highest priority at this time. We will continue to keep our lobby closed for the foreseeable future and remain curbside only for all appointments and pick-ups. When you arrive please call the clinic at 517-351-8417 and let a team member know which parking spot that you are in. The numbers are located on the building in front of each spot. We ask that you remain in your car with your pet(s), please do not exit the car, stand in front of the building or in parking spaces while you wait. Please also do not leave after we take your pet inside, unless you have specifically scheduled to have your pet dropped off with us for a few hours, during which boarding fees will be assessed.

APPOINTMENT REQUESTS: As we continue to slowly open our availability up we are scheduling our appointments out further. At this time we are limiting appointment availability on our PetDesk app to help ensure we have good availability for you.

PHONES AND WAIT TIMES: While we are curbside our doctors and staff are utilizing our phone systems more to talk with you while you wait for your pet. At times we do not have enough lines for all the calls. We are doing our best to keep the lines as free as possible. We are asking that if you have non-emergent questions, please email us at

NON-ESSENTIAL APPOINTMENTS: Recently an Executive Order was issued that allowed veterinarians to begin to see non-essential appointments again. We will schedule these as we are able, but please understand we are booking out quickly.

SURGERIES: We are able to schedule non-essential surgeries (spays, neuters and routine dentals). We are also scheduling out with these as we catch up to all of the previously postponed surgeries, which will take priority.

PAYMENTS: We are processing all payments via the phone with credit cards. We can take cash and check, but would prefer phone payments as the first option. We take your security very seriously, no credit card information is stored in our system at all.

LIMITING HUMAN CONTACT: All of our team member are wearing PPE and sanitizing between each patient/interaction. We have enacted extensive cleaning and disinfecting protocols to reduce exposure in our clinic. We will continue to keep our lobby closed for the time being. We will adjust protocols as the situation evolves more.

MORE INFORMATION: We understand this is an ever changing situation and there are so many unknowns. The following links have great resources to help with questions you may have.

As always, thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we navigate this together!
