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.
The owner of Oakland Hills Veterinary Hospital, Kathryn Christy, DVM, is a graduate of Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine, and is a licensed veterinarian in the state of Michigan. 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.
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 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.
