Dr. Ashbaugh has been our Rhodesian Ridgeback’s veterinarian since we first welcomed her into our family 12 years ago. Dr. Ashbaugh has always taken the time to thoughtfully listen to us first – followed by a thorough evaluation.

Dr Ashbaugh is an absolute legend. You could not be placing your animals into better hands than his. He is kind, gentle and a great listener. Our Chesapeake Bay Retriever was having a very hard time standing from a lying down position. She was in a lot of pain.

Dr. Ashbaugh was referred to me by a friend of mine during a time of distress and uncertainty. My dog Nala had an injury and she needed knee surgery. The compassion and expertise displayed by Dr. Ashbaugh was invaluable.
