Availability
Our veterinarians' comprehensive approach means that there is no enrollment, referrals, medical records, prior care, or additional paperwork necessary for a veterinarian visit. Considering that same day appointments are often requested, this can save crucial time and alleviate any stress on our families.
 
We are here to answer your questions every day, from 7am - 11pm. Appointments are scheduled throughout the week, please call for availability. Sometimes, pets take a turn for the worse overnight, so we do our best to accommodate same day appointments with a few hours notice when possible.

Dr. Jenn

Jenn Roedig, DVM

I’ve always had a love for animals. My family got our first cat, Rusty, when I was 5 years old. I would accompany my mom to all his vet visits and I remember being so intrigued by whatever the vet was doing. By the time I was 8 years old, I knew that I wanted to be a veterinarian. I wanted to help animals and provide a voice for those who couldn’t speak for themselves. Over the years, I have been present for the euthanasia of a few of my own pets. While it was a very difficult decision to make and an incredibly sad time, the compassion that each one of those vets had shown to me, my family, and my pet made things just a little bit easier.

I was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Cincinnati and was lucky to have the chance to go to veterinary school at Western University of Health Sciences in sunny Southern California. After graduation, I moved back to Cincinnati where I began my career as a small animal veterinarian. During that time, I have found that some of my most fulfilling appointments were helping families through one of the most difficult times and decisions they would ever have to face as a pet owner. To relieve the guilt that so many face and to reassure them that they are making the best decision for their pet means so much to me. I truly believe that this is one of the greatest gifts and most selfless acts of love one can offer. It is truly an honor for me to be able to help bring peace to both a pet and their family.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy playing soccer, backpacking/hiking, snowboarding, horseback riding, going to the gym, and spending time with family, friends, and my sassy, yet adorable, tortie cat named Reese. I look forward to helping you maintain the bond you have with your beloved pet and provide a wonderful service to families and their fur babies in the comfort of their own home.

Emily Miller, DVM

I have always had a love of all animals.  My mom said as soon as I could walk, I was wandering over to the fence to visit with the horses and our house was never without dogs and cats.  I knew from a very young age that my purpose was to help prevent the suffering of animals.  I spent many years working with rescued farm animals as well as companion animals and horses before deciding to go to vet school.

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado-Boulder and was blessed to have spent my first three years of vet school on the beautiful island of Grenada at St. George’s University. My clinical year was spent at the Ohio State University, and after graduating I moved back to my hometown, Cincinnati, to start my career as a small animal vet. I have helped many families say goodbye to their beloved pets and I believe in making that time as peaceful as possible.  I am honored to be able to provide this service to families and their pets in the comfort of their own home.

I share my home with a menagerie of dogs and cats and my free time is spent at the barn with my beloved horse, Teak.

Ron & Penny Peveler
Batavia, Ohio

"I would like to thank you so much for your treatment and empathy with Bailey. You were amazing and the I cannot say enough nice things about you. I heard about your company and how great it is but I never imaged the process would be so peaceful and gentle. My heart is aching for Bailey but I know she is happier now. Thank you for putting my mind at ease. It's never an easy decision."

Sheila E
Cincinnati, Ohio

"Thank you so much for all that you have done for Blue and I. I really didn't think I was going to be able to get through it on my own. Your kindness and compassion was above and beyond anything I could have expected. The way you and your team conducted and represented themselves was undoubtedly the best experience I have ever had. Especially with the circumstances. Your company is a godsend and I couldn’t imagine doing it any other way. Thank you for what you do."

Nathan Rogers
Covington, Kentucky

"Yesterday I had to euthanize my lovely kitty Tiny. His kidneys had shut down completely and he was unable to do anything but huddle on a heating pad. The vet was kind enough to come to my house, and even waived the fee. Tiny died peacefully in my lap."

“Lucky wandered into our acreage on December 2nd 2016. Frail, hungry and near frozen. We took him in and gave him proper care. We found the previous owner who said she didn't want him any longer and that she couldn't care for him in the way we could. We knew we were the best thing that could have ever happened to him so we named him Lucky. He lived ...

“Shadow rescued me at SICSA in Febuary 2007. He was a puppy that was supposed to go to someone else, they never came for him so he adopted me! I had lost a 14yr named Zippy, 6 weeks prior. I had a 13yr named Harley and now a puppy named Shadow Alexander.
