      • Karlene Hintz Boeve

        ‘Five Stars’ for Dr Paxton as he is a caring, knowledgeable, experienced professional! I had an in-depth conversation around the benefits of Cytopoint injections for my Westie with seasonal dermatitis. Success! Cytopoint was the solution to measurable relief.
        Also I want to share my thoughts on Euthanasia for an aggressive, violent dog. If your veterinarian recommends euthanasia, you should give it serious consideration. Some dogs are not wired correctly. The safety of children, family, & community should be the priority over an aggressive dog. Don’t wait for a disaster to transpire. My family has suffered do to non action of our neighbors aggressive dog.

      • 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.

      • 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.

      • Tina Rommell

        We love you all. Thank you for taking such great care of my dog.
