I have never had any bad experiences with Orion Animal Care Center...I have always experienced exceptional care for my precious doggie Rosie. From the ladies at the reception desk to the friendly technicians to the wonderful doctors, we are truly blessed to have found a wonderful place for Rosie's care.

When I bring my cat in, they are always really quick. There isn't a whole lot of waiting around before they get to the bottom of things. You can tell they live animals and the vet was so helpful and knowledgeable about the behavioral issue we are having right now. There is hope that we can end the bad habits my cat has formed and I didn't think that would be possible. Highly recommend, fairly affordable with no weird fees.

Our dog died due to negligence on behalf of this horrible 'care' center. They had her on steroids for over 4 weeks. They just kept doing blood draw after blood draw to "check levels", which never improved. Eventually our dog could barely stand so we took her to an emergency vet. Our dog was severely anemic to the point she would need several blood transfusions just to TRY and keep her alive...we had to put her down! The vet at the emergency room was appaulled when we showed her all the blood work results....she could not believe that the vets and techs at Orion Animal Care Center let it get this bad! I would steer clear of this place. I truly believe our dog would still be alive if we had gone somewhere else sooner. We trusted this place and we shouldn't have. We are devastated!!. And to make matters worse, we tried to return unopened heart worm pill boxes which we had purchased a few weeks prior to our dogs death....they said they couldn't take the pills back, but we could donate them!!!! Are you kidding me? I am unclear as to how this place has great reviews....maybe because it is clean? RIP our precious Neige. This is a pic of her literally 2 days before she crashed under the care of these inept people! Oh, and they also had the nerve to send us a condolence card...'sorry we basically killed your dog'...wow!

Wonderful Vet experience. I’m a new client and I love the service and attention my animals receive each time we have an appointment.

The staff and doctors are incredibly compassionate, kind, knowledgeable and responsive. We brought our cat Wish in with multiple symptoms and they are doing an amazing job helping us figure out what’s wrong. They placed a feeding tube and the doctors and staff did a great job teaching us how to feed Wish at home. During a difficult and emotional time having a veterinarian partner who is as experienced and understanding is really helping us make it through.

Awesome!! I had to take my dog Davey into this vet today for the first time as our regular vet was booked. This veterinary center is great. The techs are great and Davey's veterinarian was awesome! They figured out what was wrong within a few minutes and we were on our way with appropriate medication. We will be switching from our old vet to this clinic from now on. Thank you all for your kindness and helping Davey feel better!

After having a bad experience with another local vet (unreliable hours, never answered the phone, run down), I switched my vet care to Orion Animal Care Center and it has been amazing so far. Everyone is kind, professional, and staff really cares about COVID safety and of course about my pets! They fit my pets in so quickly to be seen and are incredibly knowledgable. I highly, highly recommend this vet's office for your pets!

We just moved back to this area with our two pups. Our previous vet always took a while to get us in for a wellness visit, I called on a Saturday and got an appointment for the following Tuesday. Not only that, everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend using them for your pet!

I recently moved to the area from Florida and was my dog became ill only one week after moving here. The illness required a splenectomy which was performed at the center. Dr. Brown, as well as the entire entire staff, were amazing throughout the entire process. If there were an option for 6 stars I would give it. Definitely found my vet here in Lake Orion!

Absolutely Tier 1. Amazing staff, Great Vet. I brought a dog home that had survived a house fire and this team did anything and everything to treat this dog and get her on a good road to recovery. I'm very thankful to this organization and everything they have done for Angel and I.

Our dog had an accident on a Saturday, my wife called every ER for pets she could find, and all were full. We were told to give this office a call and they saw us ASAP. They were so accommodating, fitting us in at the end of their day. They took great care of our pup and he is now on the mend. I cant say enough about how friendly the staff were. The Dr. was thorough and kind. Thank you!!

We are so appreciative of Dr. Bowery and the team at Orion Animal Care Center. Our dog is getting older and has had some unexpected health issues this year (even had his first-ever surgery), but Dr. Bowery is very kind and knowledgeable and has gone above and beyond to make sure our dog is taken care of. It has given us piece of mind knowing we’ll be greeted by a member of their very friendly staff and that they have such a clean facility. Thank you very much for everything you do for our dog! There is truly no other place we’d trust for the care of our boy! ????

Came for a second opinion for blood work done for my 13 year old senior with possibly Kidney Disease. Brought back a urine sample just to be told the urine is fine and the kidney can only be tested for blood work we already did that. My concern about her Kidney is still unanswered. And the food i'm sent home with she will never eat. Im in and out of two different vet offices and no real diagnosis. Waste of a drive and my time. If I knew the urine sample was just another way to pay them money with unanswered questions. I have to start all over where i beginat another Vet Office.

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Bowery. She treats my dog, Clyde, like her own and always does everything she can to not only care for him but to make sure I’m at ease too. Also, the staff is amazing and kind, always so pleasant to work with. I cannot recommend them enough! Thank you again Dr Bowery, for everything you’ve done for us this year; Clyde and I appreciate you so much!

Dr. Brown and the staff are wonderful. They are so helpful and so caring. I had to have both of my cats put down within 2 months of each other and they were so kind. Dr. Brown gave us an extra year with our beloved Lemmi by prescribing medication that helped Lemmi. They were so great about working to find a solution to our problem and I cannot say enough good things about Orion Animal Care. I would give them 10 stars if I could!!

I came to the practice during the height of the pandemic when my old vet could not "fit" my elderly cat (after 19 years with them) in. The practice made room for me. Dr. Brown is great. She is so kind and caring. Needless to say I brought all of my pets (4 cats and two dogs) over to the practice. Dr. Brown has euthanized two of my cats (both going on 20) and was just so wonderful. The staff was also very kind. They all made such sad events easier to cope with. The sympathy card was a very nice touch also. The practice is very clean and bright and cheerful.

I just switched my cat over to Orion Animal Care after they helped me out with my old dog this past winter. VERY caring and compassionate staff, very competent Doctors. 100% will be staying with these vets for all my pets from now on.

Dr. Brown is amazing! My corgi doesn’t like going to the vet because he’s very timid in unsure situations. Dr. Brown was wonderful with him! She sat on the floor with him the whole time, answered all of our questions, and was VERY knowledgeable. She explained things well and gave us options when we had concerns about an injury. I never felt like she was rushing us to get to the next customer, and I’ve had that experience before at our last vet on the west side of the state. Love the friendliness of the office too! Overall great place that truly cares about animals! Highly recommend.

I have 2 dogs, and of course both needed small surgeries the same week. My girl Ziggy cut her paw pretty bad and LAST minute on a Saturday, I call Orion Animal Care Center and they fit her in for 2 stitches within 30 minutes since I called and the whole process took less than 2 hours. The follow up visit wasn't an extra charge either, which is great. My other girl Pickles had a growth on her eye lid removed, they let me keep her there for most of the day, because I work and treated her so nicely. She was glad to be picked up, but wasn't freaked out at all! This vets office is clean, modern, the staff is so friendly and all of them are very knowledgeable and prompt. Definitely give them a try if your in the market for a new vet!

This is the best vet clinic in the area. We have used several and no one matches the level of care, kindness, and follow up. I just started a new job this week and my cat suddenly started showing signs of urinary trouble. I called and due …

I cannot recommend enough that you do not visit this office-- especially Dr. Guild. I came in mid-November with a severely underweight cat who would continue to have a number of health problems including a worsening rash and nausea. Not only did they incorrectly age my cat (they had proclaimed she was 4-6 when she's actually 16-18), they never took preventative action against any of the problems my cat was facing, and lazily prescribed her medicine. Upon taking my cat to her new vet, I discovered the medicine that Dr. Guild was prescribing to my cat could do damage to my cat's kidneys which are at risk for kidney failure. I would've loved to stay at this vet due to how kind the office is, but it became very obvious to me that Dr. Guild's best interest was in my money rather than my cat. Dr. Guild has been nothing but condescending towards me and my concerns and had told me he was unsure what to do for my cat and what to diagnose her with, but still sent me home with several different types of medication that would lead to her refusing to eat or drink and compulsively puke. I had tried to work with this vet from mid-November to early February before finally switching my cat to Orion Animal Hospital. It has been less than two weeks at the new vet and my cat has shown fast progress towards getting healthier. If you are considering Orion Animal Care Center, please reconsider. It is not worth the stress or money.

Fantastic vet and staff! They always take great care of my 13 y.o. cat. Probably one of the cleanest vet clinics I've ever been in, too.

They are so kind and you can get into the vet quickly, especially when you have a concern about your furbaby.

This place is okay, i just wish they didn’t steal my binder that held all my cat records in it. Like they gave back the records but stole the binder and didn’t give it back when i asked for it.... at least they gave back the records though
