Maple River Animal Clinic was founded by Dr. Colleen Thorp in 1994 after practicing locally for several years. As time progressed, it was determined an expansion was necessary. A surgical suite and expanded kennel space were added.
Today the clinic features four exam rooms, two treatment tables, a separate surgical suite, isolation kennels, and room for over a dozen in-patients. The clinic also has a freestanding barn with two stalls and a stock for horses and livestock.
Maple River Animal Clinic does perform farm calls throughout Emmet and parts of Cheboygan and Charlevoix counties. The clinic also provides emergency services for additional fees.

The staff is friendly and the best veterinarian care in the area.
We have been bringing our pets to Maple River Animal Clinic for years and have always received outstanding care for all of our fur babies. The Doctors and staff are just a wonderful example of professional and compassionate caregivers. Wouldn't dream of taking our pets anywhere else.
Dr Rowe and his staff are the epitome of excellence – from the friendly, professional staff at the front desk, to the helpful checkout at the end. In between are the knowledgeable dental assistants who make your experience comfortable and fun, to Dr Rowe, who performs the highest quality of dental work. His high standards for patient comfort and finished appearance are matched by his integrity and professional training in the fields of both Engineering and Dentistry from the University of Michigan. I have been visiting this pleasant office for over twenty years, and am always gratified by the personal attention the staff pays to all their patients. There is dentistry, and then there is excellence in the field of dentistry.This is the place to come for that confident smile!
