Bay Valley Animal Hospital was founded in 1979 by Dr. Philip Engelhardt Sr. and has been providing veterinary care for the past 41 years for Bay City and the surrounding areas in MI. In 2018, Dr. Engelhardt Sr. decided to keep the practice in the family by selling to his son, Dr. Philip Engelhardt Jr. and daughter-in-law, Dr. Elizabeth Hogen. Since then, the practice has expanded to a five doctor practice. Dr. Philip Engelhardt Jr, Dr. Elizabeth Hogen, Dr. Philip Engelhardt Sr., Dr. Thomas Catlin, and Dr. Elizabeth Haiderer are licensed veterinarians, treating all types of pets and animals. Your pet's health and well being is very important to us and we will take every step to give your pet the best possible care.
