Join our established full-service animal hospital as we continue to grow our veterinary team and the sound reputation we have built in our Northern Kentucky community. With a focus on balanced caseloads, we provide routine medical care, soft tissue surgery, and dentistry, as well as treating more challenging medical conditions, all in an ideal lifestyle location.
With two locations just 20 minutes apart in Independence and Fort Thomas, we provide a comprehensive range of services from routine examinations and preventive medicine to more complex diagnostics and treatment or surgery plans. We are fear-free certified and offer feline-exclusive appointment times for cat-friendly care.
Our high touch approach as patient advocates is focused on achieving the best medical options in context with each owner’s individual circumstances. Client education is paramount in achieving our patient outcomes and we make time to effectively provide clients with in-depth explanations of the available options without being overwhelming. All team members are empowered to make appropriate decisions or seek collaborative input from others where necessary.
We continue to invest in our team, and our practice resources, in order to deliver best practice veterinary medicine and surgical outcomes. We embrace diversity, fairness and we understand and highly value the importance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance for our entire team. We are committed to providing a work environment that not only encourages professional excellence but also mental well-being.
We are proud to have two Northern Kentucky locations. Our practice began in our Independence clinic more than a decade ago, and two years ago we opened our completely renovated Fort Thomas location.
Northern Kentucky is a rapidly growing region supported by a strong economic sector that includes technology, manufacturing, business, education, and health care. We’re close to Cincinnati, giving easy access to big-city amenities and even more affordable neighborhoods.
Our great community vibe, plus remarkable support resources such as schools and hospitals and plenty of great restaurants and activities all combine to offer the perfect live-work-play lifestyle for individuals, couples, and families alike.
"Our dog was seen in the Independence location and that is the best Veterinarian and staff that I have ever been to. We’ve had pets for 49 years so we have a lot of experience. Highly recommended. So friendly, informative, and kind to my pet and me. Nice to have found a permanent location. Thanks for a wonderful visit." – Sandra G (Google Review)
