  • What our clients have to say…

    • 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.

    • Julee Rae Sarto

      The staff and Doctors are absolutely wonderful! They are going through a tough time with us and have the upmost compassion and technical ability to make this better. I commend them all. Thank you for dealing with my tears and helping with Fred.

    • Jen Ely

      We've been taking our dogs here for the least 10+ years and they are compassionate and caring with our pets and very informative when special care is needed. Truly grateful they are our vet.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.
