Northside Veterinary Hospital was established in 1952 and has been serving the greater Muskegon Community for nearly 70 years. Dr. Eric Peterson, a 2003 MSU CVM graduate, purchased Northside in 2007 and added Holton Road Veterinary Clinic in 2014. The two hospitals now operate as one cohesive unit to serve the needs of our community.
The Muskegon Area is an amazing place to work and live! We have 2 smaller lakes that connect to Lake Michigan, so Muskegon is fantastic for water sports of all kinds. We have amazing beaches and State Parks. Downtown Muskegon is experiencing a rebirth with lots of new shopping, dining and entertainment development. We have a variety of museums from fine art, natural history to maritime museums. We experience moderate weather with comfortable temperatures and not too much snow fall. We are a 40-minute drive to downtown Grand Rapids, 2.5 hours from Chicago, and 2.5 hours away from Northern Michigan where wine tasting and skiing are right within reach. Several area High Schools are tops in the state academically making Muskegon a great place to raise a family.
