  • What our clients have to say…

    • Laura Piacentini

      I can’t thank the staff at Animal Hospital of Ludington enough. We brought our boy Henrik to you while camping at the state park and you got us in right away and were so great with him. He is usually terrified at the vet and has a lot of anxiety but he LOVED the staff there and was very calm the whole time. Thank you for making us out of towners feel right at home.

      Dr.'s Paxton and all the employees are professionals. Your furry friends will be getting excellent care. Totally recommend.

    • Rebecca Makowski

      I’ve experienced nothing but excellent care from Dr. Deines and Dr. Paxton and staff. From emergency visits to routine care and end of life decisions, they’ve been compassionate and trustworthy at every step. Any questions I’ve had, they discuss with me and make sure I understand. I highly recommend choosing their team to trust with your loved ones.

    • Brad Pinkerton

      Thank you to the staff at Animal Hospital of Ludington and especially Dr Paxton. We had no choice but to put our beloved Jasmine to sleep due to her condition. It was amongst the worst day of our lives. Dr Paxton and his wonderful staff treated us with the ultimate compassion and patience. The office even followed up within a few days later with a signed condolence card, a cast of her paw prints and a bottle with a bit of her fur. Janni and I are forever indebted to the kindness they showed to us. I HIGHLY recommend this office to anyone needing vet care for their pets.

    • Rebecca Murphy

      Such a caring staff and doctors. They genuinely love animals and are so compassionate. After my dear cat Jade died at age 19, they sent me a condolence package - her paw prints in plaster & a little keepsake bottle with a lock of her hair. It came as a complete surprise about a week after she passed. Warmed my ♥️ more than I can express.
