The city has come a long way since Erastus Beebe had a dream to carve out a community in 1835. A tightly knit population of over 6,000 residents, Richmond is a city that loves to give back and support one another.
The Veterinary Care Center of Richmond team enjoys the “Good Old Days” Festival and proudly struts their stuff in the “Great Michigan Parade”.
Our great love for neighbors extends onward to Armada and the Armada Fair 4-H clubs where members of the team have been participants and volunteers.
With a big interest in education, the team works with area schools to encourage and educate aspiring Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians of tomorrow.

"Dr. Howell and staff are the best. They have been the only Vet our dogs Kasie and Chopper ever saw. Kasie was 8 weeks old when we 1st took her to see Dr. Howell, unfortunately we lost Kasie in March, Dr. Howell was there for her 1st day and her last day. At the age of 9 Chopper is still a patient at this Care Center. They are a honest and caring staff."

"Took my cat in for a second opinion on her teeth. My old vet did teeth cleanings, pulled teeth and her mouth still smelled. She had a hard time eating. Dr. Howell found that she had an infection in her throat and started her on antibiotics and she has improved 100%. Very happy with results. "

"I absolutely love the Dr. Howell, Dr. Coleman and all the staff! I have 3 dogs and now a cat and they are so great with all of them. My jack-Russell/Chihuahua mix had gotten really bad allergies, and the staff did everything they could to find a solution. It has been a long road, but with there constant help we have gotten my Lexie to live comfortably. I would recommend Veterinary Care Center of Richmond to anyone I know!"
