When I moved back to Michigan in ’02, I found a vet near where I lived who turned out to be quite unsatisfactory. I then started my quest to find the very best vet I could, even if I had to drive an inconvenient distance. I called several vets to schedule an “interview appointment” as the best way of finding a top-notch vet with whom I would enjoy working.

Some vets were so arrogant that they wouldn’t deign to be interviewed so they were easy to cross off. Among the few vets that agreed to meet with me for this purpose was Dr. Bethany Steele. I was immediately taken with how knowledgeable she obviously is, but she can also explain medical issues so that anyone can understand – without ever talking down to you.

Having 9 dogs at that time with some of them (as well as prior ones) having quite complicated health problems, I wanted to find someone who had experience with those kinds of complexities. Dr. Steele definitely does but equally important, isn’t afraid to say, “I’m not sure about that” because she always follows it up with, “…but I’ll find the answer.” She was enthusiastic about working together for the best care of my dogs, and willing to listen to me and accept that I know something about what’s good for my 4-legged ‘kids.’

So many, many vets I’ve seen or heard of over the years won’t admit they aren’t all-powerful and as a result, your pet doesn’t get the very best care. With Dr. Steele, that’s never, ever a concern. She does, in fact, know an amazing amount of up-to-date information and the latest treatments but she doesn’t hesitate to consult with a specialist on your behalf, or refer you to one if needed.

She treats my dogs the same way she’d treat her own dog – or her own child, for that matter! – and lets you know what all the options might be so that you can make an informed decision. She’s one of those rare vets who wants to work with her clients, not just handing down her decisions from on high.

I recommend Dr. Steele and the Caring Animal Hospital with the utmost confidence that she’s the best vet possible for my dogs, has a terrific and welcoming staff, an absolutely immaculate clinic, and she has a heart as big as the world.

Caring Animal Hospital is a great place to take my little friends for their best health. Ive been going to Caring Animal Hospital for 7 years and they have been treated with the best care and kindness.

I have been bringing Buddy to"Dr. Beth" since he was a puppy. Dr. Steele's expertise, knowledge and caring; as well as her staff are why I take Buddy to them. He's received excellent care and attention, (from routine to surgically), which has made it possible for Buddy to be four years old now!!

My husband and I have a nearly 13 year old dog "Eddie". He has been a patient with Dr.
Steele for several years now. Eddie has allergies, a thyroid condition, and other issues
that senior dogs have. Dr. Steele and her "Caring" staff are exceptionally attune to his
needs. They are also receptive to our needs as "senior dog owners" making every
possible accommodation while providing excellent care. I would recommend Dr. Steele
and her staff at Caring Animal Hospital.

  • "Was able to get me in immediately. Very friendly. Thorough explanation of the procedure and up front on what the charge would be. Definitely would recommend!"

  • "You get in the door fast. The Caring Animal hospital is notable for hiring new veterinarians who are very careful and precise in their exams. Patient education with flea/tick and heart worm preventative is given well with Pros & Cons. X-ray results were thoroughly discussed with opportunity for questions. The office visit was pricey at $55."
