Welcome to Riversbend Animal Hospital
on Water Tower Road

For decades, Riversbend Animal Hospital has had the privilege of bringing pets and their families together by providing outstanding veterinary medicine to Big Rapids and surrounding areas from our location at 745 Water Tower Road. Being a place where pets are always welcome, we believe it's important to be available whenever our patients and clients need us. Furthermore, we have created an environment that fosters family connections and puts our valued guests at ease.

Having served our community since 1981, we're grateful for the trust we have earned over the years to care for so many pets. We hope to continue building on our tradition of excellence, family and integrity for many more years to come.


What We Offer At Our Animal Hospital Location

From quality medical care to advanced imaging and obedience classes, we have made it our mission to offer the most comprehensive services for our patients. Some of these include:

  • Wellness Care: Prevention, physical exams, vaccinations, and spaying and neutering are primary aspects of pet wellness. Our veterinarians work closely with pets and owners to  create wellness plans that are carefully tailored to every pet.
  • Surgery: In addition to offering excellent general surgery such as spays and neuters and dental prophylaxis, we also offer specialized orthopedic and soft tissue procedures within our practice.
  • Dog Obedience Classes: For puppies and adult dogs, we host obedience training classes as well as advanced agility, and therapy prep courses.
