What Our Detroit Clients Say

Dr. Bayne and Brenda were so caring with my dog hamlet. Dr. Bayne took the time to ask questions and actually listen to my answers. He also used his vast knowledge to come up with the a regimen to hopefully get my sweet boy back on stable ground. He was honest and empathetic with his prognosis. You can tell that this isn’t just a job for the both of them. Highly recommend!

We were unable to get our K9 fur baby in the car to take her to the vet so I called BetterVet, best call I made. Dr. Rice and her assistant were caring and gentle with Katie plus they were very professional and personable. Thanks again.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register my dog in Detroit?

In the state of Michigan, dogs six months or older need to be licensed and wear the dog registration tag. To register your dog in Detroit, you need to apply in person at Detroit Animal Care and Control. You will need to show owner identification, proof of rabies vaccine, and payment. Dog license fees are $10 for neutered dogs and $15 for dogs that are not neutered. The dog license is renewed yearly (even if your dog has been given a three-year rabies vaccine).

What does the SPCA do with stray animals?
When a stray/lost animal is taken to the SPCA, the local by-laws prescribe how long the animal must be kept before it can be put up for adoption if not claimed by its original owner. When the pound period expires, it does not mean that the animal is euthanized. It means the animals can be legally adopted.
