Testimonials

What Our Clients Say

  • "We both would like to thank you for your continued caring and concern regarding our horses. There is never a time when our calls were not returned or followed up on. We feel very thankful we have such caring and thoughtful vets"
    Vaughn and Janice Panek Fayetteville, Ohio
  • "We switched to Little Miami Veterinary Service about a year ago and couldn’t be happier with our choice. My dog Luna loves going there and gets excited every time we pull into the parking lot. The staff are all extremely nice and welcoming, and the vets are very thorough and comforting. I wouldn’t want to take my pets anywhere else. This is the best in the area!"
    - Phillip
  • "Little Miami Veterinary Services has been taking wonderful care of our pets for 11 years. We currently have 5 pets (3 dogs and 2 cats) ranging in age from 6 months to 16 years! Whatever medical care was needed, we've always trusted the knowledge and experience of Dr. Hultgren and her Staff. Our 16 year old Chow had a tumor in his liver, has been treated for Cushings and is still with us today because of them. We've always found them to be professional, compassionate and understanding. They've always been there for us, no matter when we needed them. We highly recommend Dr. Hultgren and her team to anyone who loves their pets and wants them to get the best care ever!"
    Karen and Dan Arnold Maineville, Ohio
  • "Thank you for the love and support during the passing of Daisy, and most of all thank you for all that you do to care for all of our furry family members. We cannot express our thank you enough to equal all that you have done. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to the animals. We could not have asked for a better place! You guys are great!"
    Brad and Angel Kohane Morrow, Ohio
  • "Dr. Hultgren and Dr. Daniela are our #1 choice for veterinarians! When our dogs have had emergencies they have always called us back promptly and treated them. Since moving to Columbus, we still prefer their treatment (especially for surgeries) and will make the drive so one of them can do it! They're the only two doctors I truly trust my dogs with."
