  • What our clients have to say…

    • Renee Bernardi

      A big thank you to Dr. Paxton for agreeing to be Tessa’s new vet and participate in the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. We moved to Michigan from Indiana just over 2 years ago and have been struggling to find a vet willing to participate which meant driving 3 1/2 hours each way once a year to our former vet. Dr. Paxton and his staff are wonderful. So glad I can finally say I have a vet I can trust my fur babies with.

    • 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.

    • Kandi Miller

      my babyboy captain comes to you and he just loves you all

    • 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.

    • Shawn Bennett

      Wonderful staff. Nola could not possibly have been in better hands.

    • 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.
