We provide compassionate veterinary care for your pets.

Our team strives to serve our community and patients with the care and quality they deserve, sharing kindness with our hearts and compassion in our practice. We strive to provide exceptional patient care and client service with open lines of communication and fee transparency so that you and our veterinarians can work together to provide the best possible care for your pet.

We are proud to be one of only 15% of Animal Hospitals that are accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, a certified Cat Friendly Practice®, and we have many team members who are Fear-Free® Certified.

Our journey began in 2012, when Dr. Dawn Bookmyer, a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, brought her vision of a community-centric veterinary practice to life. With over three decades of experience, Dr. Bookmyer crafted a hospital that stands as a testament to her unwavering commitment to animal wellness and community service.

Dr. Bookmyer’s expertise as a seasoned surgeon, wellness, and medical small animal care specialist set a high standard for veterinary excellence.  Her dedication extended beyond the walls of our hospital, evidenced by her involvement in local rescue groups, the Shawnee Hills feral cat Trap-Neuter-Release program, and various community events.  In 2023, after a fulfilling career, Dr. Bookmyer chose to retire, seeking to spend more quality time with her family, indulge in her hobbies, and contribute through volunteer work, while still practicing occasionally as a relief veterinarian.  Now dividing her time between Shawnee Hills and her new lake house in South Carolina, she continues to embody the spirit of giving and caring!

As we step forward, our commitment to excellent patient and client care remains unwavering.  We look forward to serving you and your pets soon!
