Meet Amanda, the veterinarian at Hearts & Paws

Meet the VeterinarianAs a veterinarian, Amanda Grant is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association. She earned her Master’s in Zoology, studying human prostate cancer, from Michigan State University in 2005. Prior to attending veterinarian school, she participated in a study abroad program in Africa. Before moving to the Gull Lake area from Lansing, Amanda worked part-time at two different veterinary clinics, commuting to Saginaw on weekends to work at their emergency clinic. She has three children, aged 6, 10, and 12, who love sports, warm weather, and hitting the beach.

At home, Amanda has a lab named Moose that is four years old, and two rescue cats – Merlin and Nessie – who divide their time between home and the clinic. Merlin is a curious young kitten and Nessie is an older cat who loves to eat and talk.

Amanda feels that she has a special ability to connect with animals and their caretakers. With a strong interest in caring for pets with cancer, she spent additional hours in the oncology clinic attending meetings, helping with radiation and chemotherapy patients, and researching treatment protocols.

Steadfastly committed to providing comprehensive, compassionate care for all animals, Hearts & Paws believes that the basis of your pet’s care involves understanding its history and performing a thorough physical exam to help identify complications and manage its health.
