Quality Care

As the largest facility for small animal care in metro Grand Rapids, Cascade Hospital for Animals is built on the principle of providing compassionate quality care for dogs, cats, birds and exotics.

We understand that your pet is as much a part of your life as any other member of your family. Like a family member, you want the best for your pet when it comes to veterinary medical care, grooming, nutrition advice and even recreation when you are away from home.


Cascade Hospital tends to your healthy pet with professional grooming, obedience training and stimulating boarding packages. We have developed several programs such as The Crate Escape doggie daycare and Cat Playroom for cats that keep your pets in a state of physical and mental well being while you are away.

    I brought my hedgehog, Eleanor Rigby, in for an exam because she was not eating, drinking or running on her wheel. Dr Ritzman found an abscess on her tongue and prescribed treatment. Ellie is now eating, drinking and wheeling every night.

    Blue Bear had an awesome time while we were on vacation. Over the years, this is the only place I have trusted to board our dogs. This is especially true now because he has lymphoma and requires monitoring and medication

    Our Double Yellowhead Amazon required care much above a normal checkup. Dr. Ritzman is one of a very few avian care specialists in the upper Midwest who has both the training and expertise to provide the level of care our Amazon required.

    I drive 3 hours from Indiana for my birds to see Dr. Ritzman. I have had parrots for more than 21 years and pet ducks, and Dr. Ritzman's level of expertise is unmatched.

    Cascade continues to be the gold standard for companion animal care in Southwest Michigan. We've dealt with them in all phases of veterinary medicine, and their level of expertise, coupled with their compassion, is the reason we drive 40 miles each way to have our dogs maintained there.

    We boarded our high maintenance, allergyladen lab @ CHFA, and we knew we could enjoy our vacation without a single worry. We also put him in the Crate Escape so his vacation would be as fun as ours.
