Welcome to Animal Health Associates!

Welcome to Animal Health Associates!

Animal Health Associates has been serving the community of Central Michigan since 1989.  Drs. Alex Imlay and Larry Judge opened our first office in an old feed store on M20. The clinic consisted only of two small exam rooms, a surgery room, and a kennel room.

In the spring of 1992 AHA built a new office at our current location on Pickard Road.  The original building had a reception area, radiology room, lab area, two large exam rooms, kennel room and surgery room.  In 2000 an addition was built that provided an isolation ward, larger kennel room, surgery suite, treatment area, doctors office and large animal stocks in the garage.

AHA expanded to a three full-time doctor practice in 2005, then again to four doctors in 2015.  These changes over the last 20 years have allowed Animal Health Associates to continue to offer quality veterinary medicine in a compassionate and energetic atmosphere.  Again in 2020 AHA expanded adding another doctor as well as adding 3 more exam rooms and an updated and expanded reception area.

Wellness Exams
Whether your pet is a youngster, a “senior citizen,” or any age in between, wellness examinations provide an excellent opportunity for us to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a health profile for your pet.
Dental Care
We want your pet to live a long, healthy life, and we understand that maintaining a healthy mouth is part of that. Dental disease leads to more than just bad breath.

Large Animal Services
Large animal appointments with an ambulatory veterinarian are available Monday through Friday. In order to minimize travel time and fuel costs we attempt to schedule appointments together in general geographic regions.
