Hidden Spring Veterinary Clinic

We at Hidden Spring Veterinary Clinic would like to thank you for visiting our web site!
Our clinic has served the Northville area (and beyond) for over 30 years and is known as a small, friendly, country clinic with a warm, happy, and low-key atmosphere. Our clinic is located on the site of an old dairy farm dating back to before the Civil War.

In September of 2000, we opened our new facility located on the same site as our old clinic. Although the building is new, the same 'old' people are running our business! We now have 4 veterinarians and 10 support staff, many of which have been with us for several years or longer.

Over the years, we have established many long-term relationships with our clients. These relationships are very close to our hearts. This is, after all, not just a pet business but also a people business. We are all very fortunate to live in the Northville area where we have easy access to a variety of specialists and equipment, and where we have an outstanding emergency clinic within four miles of our office. We work hand-in-hand with these great folks to keep your pet's medical needs covered 24 hours a day. We hope you will come and meet our fine staff.

Our Mission
The mission of Hidden Spring Veterinary Clinic is to offer your pets the best possible veterinary care and to deliver that care with honesty and compassion.

Sincerely,

Carol L Geake DVM, Owner

    DVM, Owner
    Dr. Carol L Geake is the founder and matriarch of Hidden Spring Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Carol was born and raised in Grand Rapids MI. Believe it or not, she was well known as a contortionist, played clarinet in the HS band and orchestra, and was an avid member of the Science Club, Bowling Club, and Library Club. Later, she received a BS and MS from the U of M with majors in zoology and parasitology (Honors). While a student, she taught labs in zoology and protozoology, did research on schistosomiasis, and helped maintain laboratory life cycles of several species of human schistosomes in the Mollusk Division of the Museum of Natural History. At the Museum, she met her husband, Bob, with whom she worked as a docent. Bob was completing his doctorate in an combined program of Education and Psychology. After marriage, the couple moved to Northville and began taking in children with behavior problems in their spare time. After graduation, Dr. Carol was a Research Assistant in the Industrial Health Toxicology Department in the School of Public Health studying ways to reverse toxicity of rocket fuel(!).

    One day, while listening to a sermon on Stewardship Sunday, the minister implied that people spend more on alcohol, tobacco, and PETS!  than they do on their church! She was a bit miffed that pets were lumped in with other vices, so she went home and wrote for an application to the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine. Very soon after, she was accepted and began the long daily commute to Lansing to achieve her DVM degree, which had always been one of her ambitions.

    Upon completion of her veterinary degree, Dr. Carol and her husband began to beget their own family of Roger, Tammy, and Bill, and Dr. Carol first worked for another veterinarian in Plymouth, MI, and then began her own practice at Hidden Spring. Outside of work, Dr. Carol is a semi-professional nature photographer, loves to play with the Arabian and ½ Arabian horses which her daughter, Tammy, has trainer and shown to Regional and National Honors, and travels as often as possible while she is still able to get around. She loves her mongrel dog, Natty Bumpo, very much, and also all the other critters that call Hidden Spring their home.
