Mission Statement

It is the mission of Two by Two Animal Hospital to maximize the quality and the longevity of our patients’ lives by providing comprehensive high quality veterinary health care with emphasis on exceptional client service and communication.

About Us

Two by Two Animal Hospital (formerly Hecht Veterinary Hospital) was originally founded by Dr. Phil Hecht as a full service small animal and ambulatory equine hospital in 1967. Dr. Hecht sold the practice to Dr. Shaffer in December 2009. The hospital was renamed after the Biblical story of the animals coming to the ark to be saved, two by two.

The hospital was remodeled and expanded in 2010 with the help of Busch Construction. Please visit our "before and after" page to see pictures of our changes. We are still serving equine, companion animals, and small ruminants. We are now able to hospitalize the larger animals in our new addition.

Our full service hospital is equipped to provide ultrasound, digital x-ray, endoscopy, surgery, and process blood work in-house, pet grooming salon and boarding for dogs, cats, birds, exotics, and many more.

We have a strong team with three doctors who are graduates of Michigan State University and four Licensed Veterinary Technicians. Our doctors and technicians are “on call” for emergency all year long including holidays.

Our team enjoys participating in our community by finding ways to give back.  Please join us in some of our favorite events!


We enjoy working with the local animal rescue groups and we strongly encourage adopting pets from them. As a way of thanking you for supporting these groups Two By Two Animal Hospital provides a gift certificate for newly adopted pets.
