VeterinarianReviews in Ionia, MI

We appreciate your feedback and would love to hear about your experience at our veterinary clinic.

We loved our experience—thank you for caring for our baby so lovingly this past 1 1/2 years. He came to us unexpectedly as an orphan with his eyes closed. He required round-the-clock care for a few weeks, and extra help and love for a few months after that. Now, he is a healthy baby that we can’t imagine life without.

Sterner is by far the best place around. They are all very nice and care about your animals. Dr. Werner is the best he is so caring and he actually tells you everything you need to know and watch for. He just did surgery on our English bulldog Doug and he did a great job. I would definitely recommend them.
