Oakland Hills Veterinary Hospital opened in January, 2012. We have created an environment to ensure comfort for our patients, their families and our employees in order to create an ideal environment to care for their dogs, cats and small mammals that you entrust to our care.

Dr. Christy has been a veterinarian for 24 years, and has worked at three small animal practices during that time.
The associate veterinarian, Emily Socks, DVM, is a graduate of Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine, and is a licensed veterinarian in the state of Michigan and Georgia.
We are all wrestling with the recent impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19). At Oakland Hills Veterinary Hospital, the well-being of our patients, staff, and community remains our top priority. We are committed to providing you and your pets with a safe environment. To do so, we will be implementing several precautionary measures. As of Friday, March 20th, only essential personal will be allowed inside Oakland Hills Veterinary Hospital. We will be conducting curbside appointments until further notice. Our staff will meet clients in the parking lot and bring pets in for care. During this time services may be limited, and some existing appointments may need to be postponed. Hospital personnel will contact clients directly with information regarding any changes. We thank you for entrusting us with the care of your pet, and for your patience during this difficult time.
Oakland Hills Veterinary Hospital will remain open during our normal operating hours Monday-Friday. We will be CLOSED on weekends until further notice. We are dedicated to keeping our facility safe while following all CDC hygiene recommendations. We are here to address any questions and concerns you may have during this time. For all inquires, please call us at (248) 817-2052 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
*At this time, the CDC has received no reports of dogs or cats contracting the coronavirus (COVID-19).*
In an effort to create a fear-free environment, we are offering a variety of new, enticing treats here at Oakland Hills! Our goal is to make your pet’s experience at our hospital not only comfortable but also enjoyable! Below Foxy demonstrates the use of a new “lick mat” covered in baby food that serves as a delicious distraction. We have pet-safe snacks to meet any dietary needs. Ask us to try out some new treats at your pet’s next visit! We have peanut butter, frozen yogurt, pretzel rods, marshmallows, baby food, and more…yum!
In addition to tasty treats, we are introducing a new initiative to create a calming environment through the use of Adaptil and Feliway. These products replicate pheromones that send comforting signals to your pet, encouraging relaxation in stressful situations. For canines, we offer a bandanna scented with Adaptil (see Remi the puppy sporting her calming bandanna below). For felines, we offer blankets scented with Feliway to drape over your cat’s carrier or cuddle with in the exam room.
