With a large elderly population in Alpena, one veterinary clinic wanted to make it easier for them to get treatment for their pets.
Sunrise Veterinary Service, is offering their Tech On the Go vehicle which can show up at one’s house for the animal. A lot of times, especially in the winter, not everyone feels safe or able to head to the vet. “We’ve also done a lot of transportation, like ambulance type work with this where we go to a house and pick up an animal that needs to have an exam or is sick and the owners unable to physically get it here,” said Jill Fournier, veterinarian. “So, we’re allowed to go pick it up and bring it back.”
Sunrise Veterinary Service is located on US-23 in Alpena.
