Happy New Year!

We would like to take a moment to thank all of our loyal clients and discuss some changes for the new year.

It is with great sadness that we announce the resignation of Dr. Emily Wood effective Jan 31st. She has been with the practice for the past 7 years but she is in need of a break from the rigors of routine veterinary medicine. To say that she will be missed is an understatement but we understand her need to change course. Willow Creek will continue her compassionate care for both her small and large animal clientele.

We are working to get back to full staff but like many businesses feel the burden of being understaffed at times. We will continue to do our absolute best to care for all of our furry friends, both large and small in a timely manner.

The shortage of large animal veterinarians both locally and nationally has been increasing over the last decade and there is no current relief in sight. We ask for your patience as we triage care to ensure that there is a veterinarian willing and able to attend to the true emergencies.

We will continue to see after hours emergencies for current clientele to the absolute best of our ability.

We do encourage our large animal clients to make trailering arrangements ahead of time in case the need ever arises to haul a patient to a hospital; either at Willow Creek or to a full-service facility such as OSU or ESH. Having a back-up plan to get your horse to care benefits everyone.

The local Equine veterinarians are also working together to make sure someone is always available, so there may be times that your Equine Emergency may need to be seen by Dr. Meer, Dr. Anderholm, Dr. Peckham or other practitioner as we try to pool our resources and work together to ensure coverage. We know you will receive top notch care by our Equine veterinary community.

We will continue to work in small animal emergencies during the day and there are several great options for afterhours and specialty care in the area. These Include Med-Vet Cleveland or Akron, Metropolitan Akron or Highland Heights, and Animal Care Northview.

Looking forward to a new year with new possibilities and continued veterinary care of your furry family.
