Traverse City Vet Opens Mobile Pet Hospital

A local veterinarian is opening a pet hospital that will treat pets all across Northern Michigan.

Saturday in Traverse City pet owners are out at the Tractor Supply on Chums Corner celebrating the opening of the new Cherry Capital Mobile Pet Hospital.

After 30 years of working at traditional veterinary practices, Craig Brakemen, DVM, noticed a need for more convenient pet health services.

Cherry Capital Mobile Hospital provides medical, dental, and surgical services for pets.

The hospital has already taken appointments in Cadillac, Suttons Bay and Grayling.

Brakemen says, "We had a lady just this morning that made an appointment to have her cat’s teeth cleaned because the cat hates getting into that carrier to get to the vet people who want to take care of their pet but they can’t get them to the vet because of whatever reason it is."

The mobile pet hospital officially opens on Monday.
