This decision has not been made lightly.  For 1 ½ years we have been able to stay open because we had a veterinarian either on staff or hired from the Veterinary Relief Service.  These veterinarians have been willing to sign with the drug supply companies, a requirement of the Ohio Pharmacy board for being able to purchase or sell drugs.


Efforts to sell the practice have been unproductive, the supply of temporary veterinarians has dried up and prescription medicine can neither be purchased or dispensed by the Animal Hospital without a veterinarian on the premises.


I am heartbroken that I can’t continue Doc’s legacy at this time and apologize for any inconvenience this causes.  After August 30th the doors will be closed, but we will make every effort to make your pet’s records available to you.  There will be a skeleton staff to check voicemail messages or email for several weeks after Labor Day 2016.


If by chance, you know of a young veterinarian who wants the challenge of a rural veterinary practice and a good place to raise a family, please have them contact me.


Thank you for the many years of support and your patience with our changing staff and reduced hours over the last 6 months.
