Our Team


Dr. Amanda Houk, DVM

For 12 years, my first dog, Princess, was my best friend. She was the one I turned to when I was sad or just needed a hug. Even at that age, I understood the connections that people have with their pets, so it was no surprise when at ten years old, I already knew that I wanted to become a veterinarian. I spent my high school years volunteering at local vets and animal shelters and loved the challenge that veterinary medicine provided and the animal-human connection.

I graduated from Michigan State Veterinary College of Medicine in 2013 and started working in Emergency Medicine in Ann Arbor. After several years of practicing, I wanted to have the ability to help more people, and I wanted to get back the bond not only with the animals, but with the people as well, so I took over the general practice here in Holt Michigan.

I am grateful to have achieved my lifelong dream and honored by the trust placed in me, not only by my patients but also by the people that love them. I treasure the long term relationships that I develop with my clients as we work together to ensure that the pets they love receive the best care possible and are always treated with kindness, compassion, and respect.
When I am not with my patients, I am at home cuddling with my dogs; Thor, Bruce, Wilma, and Bam Bam or my mischievous cat; Groot. You may also see me at the local gym with my husband Tom, and hopefully once a year, I do like to get away to a warm place!
