Whittaker Road Animal Clinic

Welcome to the Whittaker Road Animal Clinic in Ypsilanti. Our veterinary hospital is part of the Midwest Veterinary Partners family. At Whittaker Road, our veterinarians understand how important your pet's health is to you. We want you and your animal companions to have a good quality of life together so we offer preventive care, wellness care and restorative care, as well as referrals for emergency vet services. We offer microchip IDs to help identify your pet if he should become lost. Dr. Rothstein and Dr. Wuerth also provide pet health certificates for travel and documentation for litter exams, vaccinations, and deworming.

  • Dr. Abigail Wuerth, DVM

    Veterinarian
    Dr. Abigail Wuerth grew up in Lincoln Park, Michigan and attended Michigan State University where she received her BS in Animal Science in 2007. She went on to obtain her DVM at The Ohio State University where she focused on companion animals. Despite the excellent education provided by the Buckeye school, she will always be a Spartan at heart.

She also has a soft spot for shelter medicine and helping animals in need.

    Dr. Wuerth is very compassionate and sets high customer service goals. Low stress handling, making veterinary visits friendly and less stressful for the animals is one of her top priorities. Abigail currently has a Boxer mix named Mia, a Doberman named Odie, two cats, Dora and Sir Wellington and one rabbit named Emma. When she is not busy with her veterinary duties, Abigail likes to spend time with friends and family. She enjoys a variety of music and dabbles in arts & crafts.
