Services & Fees
Please note: To offset rising medical disposal costs, we charge a flat $5 biohazard fee per pet for appointments requiring vaccinations, lab work, or surgery. This fee is waived for low-cost vaccine clinic appointments.
The HSHV Vet Clinic is a full-service facility that partners with you to keep your pet healthy and happy. We cover a wide range of health needs, helping when your animal is sick, and also providing routine healthcare including regular checkups, vaccinations, medications or preventatives. Additionally, we offer a full suite of diagnostic services, including bloodwork, fecal tests and digital X-ray to help us understand and treat whatever your pet is experiencing.
Check-in for vet appointments: When you arrive, please park in one of our veterinary appointment spaces at the front of the building. Then, call 734-662-4365 and stay on the line and in your car until we can check you in.
If your pet has not been seen by us before, or has been seen by a different vet since last time you were at the HSHV Clinic, it is very important you bring your vaccination records – we are typically unable to confirm vet records from other facilities during your appointment.

HSHV is proud to offer our community low cost vaccination clinics, or “LCVC” for short. We offer dog and cat vaccines as well as heartworm, flea and tick preventative medications at discounted prices.
Appointments are required. See prices and dates here.
Please note: LCVC’s, by state law, cannot be counted as a veterinary exam, and do not replace the need for regular visits with your veterinarian.
Regarding prices: Prices offered on day of LCVC are only available on day of LCVC*. Additionally, unless a pet has had a full exam with us within the last year, services and heartworm prevention are only available at LCVC – see the registration for more details). The flea and tick medications offered at LCVC are over the counter and can be purchased anytime.
Our Low Cost Vaccination Clinics may not be the best environment for animals who are nervous/anxious in new or high activity environments or don’t like to be around other pets or people. Please be advised that if your animal is not treatable/handleable at this event, services may not be able to be provided. You may be asked to schedule an Outpatient appointment during our regular business hours so that we can better service your pet. Also, though our Low Cost Vaccination Clinics are appropriate for most dogs and cats, if your pet has previously had an adverse effect in response to vaccination, please call our clinic for an appointment.
Keeping your pets protected from parasites is vital for their health and happiness – and the happiness of their owners too! While tick and flea populations may dwindle in the cold months, dogs and indoor/outdoor cats need heartworm prevention year round to stay protected. Heartworm, which is passed by mosquitos who remain active all year, can be fatal, and can cause significant damage to lungs and heart. Many heartworm preventatives also protect against intestinal parasites that can be contracted year round, and can also be passed to humans.
NOTE: Heartworm and prescription flea and tick preventative are only available for active clients whose pet has had necessary testing, or at our low cost vaccine clinics. (Please see www.hshv.com/lcvc for more low cost vaccine clinic details, including prices and dates).
If your pet has tested positive for heartworm, HSHV can help. The treatment process is long term and intensive but can save your pet’s life.
Did you know one in three pets are lost at some time in their life, and microchipped animals are more than 20 times more likely to be reunited with their owners?
Our clinic offers microchips for $30 for both cats and dogs.
If you have lost your pet, please see our Lost and Found.
Moved? Here’s how to update your address with our microchip provider.
End of life decisions are possibly the hardest a pet owner will ever face. Our staff is here to help you during this difficult time. In addition to treating your animal lovingly and respectively, we’ll assist you in understanding the options, and which is right for you and your beloved pet.
We offer humane euthanasia for your pet in your home or in our clinic, and several different options for cremation services.
In-Clinic Euthanasia Cost
|All sizes||Small||Medium||Large||Over 100 lbs.|
|Return to owner||$110||$120||$150||$170||$200|
Housecall Euthanasia Cost
|Leave in home||$165||$175||$205||$225|
If you wish, you can download and complete the request for euthanasia form at home and have it ready for your appointment.
Euthanasia services are available by appointment only so that we ensure you have appropriate space and time for mourning.
Just like humans, domestic dogs and cats need regular dental check-ups. Their mouths are perfect incubators for many kinds of bacteria. And did you know that proper dental care can not only improve your pet’s breath, it can extend the life of your companion animal for 3-5 years?
HSHV offers affordable dental care. A consult is $60, and our dental procedure estimate guides are below:
- Cat Dental Procedure Estimate
- Small Dog (up to 50 lbs) Dental Procedure Estimate
- Large Dog (50-100 lbs) Dental Procedure Estimate
We are sorry; we cannot perform dental services for dogs over 100 lbs.
Arriving For Your Appointment
Dental check-ins are at 8:30 a.m. Please complete the Dental Anesthetic Form before you check in (they are available on the bench in front of clinic if you forget to bring yours). Please remain in your car with your pet, and when you are ready, call 734-662-4365 to check in.
Safe, soothing and scientifcally proven successful, laser therapy has been used for decades to treat a myriad of conditions in humans. And now, companion animals can benefit from it as well.
Laser therapy accelerates the body’s own healing process by stimulating cellular activity. It’s drug-free, surgery-free, and non-invasive. Using a laser light to penetrate muscles, tendons and ligaments, we can promote healing within. Though there’s no sedation, pets often fall asleep during treatment, as the laser light is slightly warm and the animals find their therapeutic sessions calming.
Laser therapy has been scientifically proven successful in treating many acute and chronic conditions including:
- Arthritis and sore joints
- Back injuries
- Sprains and Strains
- Chronic ear infections
- Repairing wounds
- Post-surgical healing
Applications typically take 5-15 minutes, depending on the size of your animal and the area being treated. Treatments initiate a healing process that continues to reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment. Multiple sessions are usually recommended, though pets often show results within 1 day their first treatment. Pets (and humans) are fitted with protective eye gear, and all treatments are performed by a trained technician.

such as incision
| Two locations
e.g., both hips
|Package of 5 + 1 FREE||$200 (~$33 ea)||$250 ($42 ea)||$300 ($50 ea)|
