Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital Goes the Extra Mile for Your Pets

by Administrator 16. April 2013 13:52

We know how important your pets are to you.  Our Mission at Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital is to provide the best quality care, with compassion and respect for both our clients and patients. We strive to exceed the expectations of our clients because we believe that your pets are part of your family and ours.

Over the years pet owners in Acme, Traverse City, Williamsburg, Elk Rapids, Kalkaska and the surrounding areas have come to know and appreciate Dr. Peck and his compassionate quality care that he gives to all of his patients.  Dr. Peck is always the pets advocate and will work with each pet owner to ensure that their pet receives the best pet care in Northern Michigan. 

Here's what one of our clients have said about their experience at Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital. 

"I first came to Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital with my bearded dragon, Gunner.  I was unsure where I could take him in the Northern Michigan area and when I asked around, Dr. Eric Peck's name came up.  I scheduled an appointment, took Gunner in, and fell in love with the atmosphere as soon as I walked through the door.  There are smiling faces at every turn!  I immediately had all of my buddies (2 dogs and my bird) transferred to NMVH.  The one-on-one attention and knowledgeable staff make every visit enjoyable.

About a month ago, Gunner became very ill and I thought I was going to lose my best friend; he was in very critical condition.  I rushed Gunner to NMVH Saturday morning where Dr. Peck assessed and treated him immediately.  I was amazed to see Gunner improving so rapidly after being treated by Dr. Peck.  Throughout the next couple of weeks, Dr. Peck and his staff made follow-up calls to check on Gunner's progress.  NMVH did everything possible to get Gunner healthy and back to his sassy and snuggly self.

The care and compassion at NMVH is unparalleled and I would trust my animals (that are my life) to no one else.  I may have an hour drive to get to NMVH, but they go that extra mile and beyond and so will I!"

We invite you to come and experience Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital for yourself.  Stop by, we'd be happy to give you a hospital tour.  We look forward to going the extra mile for your pet too! 


Looking for a Veterinarian in Traverse City that offers Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation?

by Administrator 12. April 2013 13:25

Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital is proud to offer Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation in conjunction with other holistic treatments such as Cold Laser Therapy and Pet Massage Therapy.  If your looking for a veterinarian in Traverse City that can offer your pet pain-free options for their ailments, you have found the right place.   Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital is the only pet vet in Northern Michigan that offers all three of these treatments in one convenient location.




A. What is VOM?

Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation is a healing technology that locates areas of the animal’s nervous system that has fallen out of communication. VOM will assist in re-establishing neuronal communication and thus induces healing. 


B.   Is Veterinary Orthopedic manipulation Chiropractic Care?

No, VOM exists in between veterinary and chiropractic care.  It has similarities to some of the chiropractic modalities and functions, by reducing subluxations and restoring function as is done is chiropractic care.  A hand-held device is used which is a popular human chiropractic technique call “activator methods” but it is not to be confused with that technique.  The differences between VOM and Chiropractic care are significant and distinct.


C.    Why is VOM so Accurate?

Because VOM finds and reduces all neuronal subluxations.  All neuronal subluxations have a pathological reflex demonstrably associated with them.  A pathological reflex is like a knee jerk response.  It is either there or it is not.  It is an objective means to determine the presence and reductions of a neuronal subluxation.  The pathological read is not “partially there”, “kind of there”, or “almost there” adding a factor of subjectivity to interpretation.  VOM is a precisely objective science. 


D.   How it Works

All chiropractic modalities have one thing in common in that they all reduce the vertebral subluxation complex by providing motion or force to the fixated or subluxated joint.

Spinal Injury = Neuronal Subluxation Syndrome=Pathological Read

Neuronal Subluxation + Motion (force) = Subluxation Reduced

So if you put motion into a joint that is associated with a neuronal subluxation sign, (a pathological read), you reduce the subluxation.  It is that simple.  All the various types of chiropractic techniques have this motion or force into the subluxated joint in common.  VOM delivers its force with a hand-held device called a spinal accelerometer.  It looks a bit like a spring-loaded doorstep.
