When you bring your pet to Bayshore Veterinary Hospital, you can rest assured knowing your pet will receive the finest medical treatment from an experienced veterinary team, equipped with current technology. Our newly remodeled facility has allowed us to expand our offerings and ensures we are on the cutting-edge of veterinary medicine; including an in-house lab, digital x-ray, ultrasound, and a state-of-the-art surgery suite.
Bayshore Veterinary Hospital is a full service animal hospital in Marquette, MI that provides complete care for companion and small animals. Since 1993, we've offered state-of-the-art veterinary care to clients throughout Marquette County and beyond.
Thank you to all the patient customers, Bayshore staff and the more than able Cross Construction crew from Munising during our construction period; eleven months later the project is complete and it sure appears to be worth it in the end; 6500 square feet of new space to better serve your pets!
Charles Harvey would be envious to see his house now. He built the house in 1857 and later moved on to engineer the Sault Locks and the elevated train in New York. We tried to stay with the architectural style he had set in the original house.
Meet Our Vets
Founded Bayshore Vet Hospital in 1993
Dr. Tim Hunt
Dr. Tim is a 1989 graduate of Michigan State University's School of Veterinary Medicine and is a licensed vet in both Michigan and Alaska. He practices at the same companion animal veterinary hospital he opened from more than 25 years ago. Building his practice from scratch he "ate a lot of Ramen noodles for many years." Continuing to learn and improve, Dr. Hunt attends continuing education each year covering various topics such as surgery, ultrasound and internal medicine, striving to provide the most up to date medicine possible. In February 2019, Dr. Tim became a SDEP™ Abdomen Certified Sonographer and Instructor further supporting his passion for learning and enhanced diagnostics.
Dr. Hunt has also raced his sled dogs and been a race vet in different parts of the world over the last 18 years including the French Alps, Rocky Mountain's, Alaska's Iditarod and the UP 200 numerous times. "If they put a trail in an area I would want to visit, seeing it by dog team is the best way to enjoy it."
Drawing upon his years as a vet and racing sled dogs, he created Dr. Tim's Premium All Natural Pet Food to replicate the natural, wild diet of dogs and cats. Seeing a need for a food that meets the metabolic needs of dogs and cats appropriately, his company was begun in 2004 in his garage. This food is currently sold through out the United States and various countries outside the USA. Dr Tim's fully donates all the food used at UPAWS in Marquette for the animals that are fed at the local shelter.

Dr. Tim and his wife Mary live on 50 acres outside of Marquette, Michigan, with one house cat, two house dogs and 20 outdoor dogs. Dr. Tim's stepson Tom is an M.D. and he and his wife Emily and two daughters live nearby.
