-Mandy & Tim Sutherland

I appreciate the special attention given to my pets. The staff speaks to them like they are special to them just just the owners. I moved farther away now, and still prefer to come to this facility.
-Rachel Martz

All facilities are well kept. Staff always friendly and helpful. Always great with my pets.
- Roberta & Robert Smith

Keep doing exactly what you are doing! Love the service we have received thus far. Good to know our Buddy is in good hands.
-Greg & Karen Schnelzer

We couldn't have had the precious extra time with our Cooper without the help from the front desk and the clinical staff helping us to get us in week after week with his abdominal tappings. Helping him pass over the Rainbow Bridge was the hardest thing we've ever had to do but the office helped us through the process and we knew we were doing the right thing. Even though we drive from Southeast Akron to Rittman, we will continue to do so because of the commitment to car and customer service we have received. We look forward to sharing our new puppy Juneau with the office and feeling as though the office really cares about our pets health and well-being.
-Jessica & Joseph Mobley

-Sharon & Jack Kelly

I think there is no area that needs improvement. Everyone has been friendly and always helpful.
-Kathy & Tom White

Our cat had a bad reaction to the shot she was given. We rushed her back to the office. They were very compassionate and caring. We were grateful they helped her. We were so afraid she was dying. She is improving every day. Thanks to your team!!!
-Carol & Bill Park

Never, never, never let Dr. Markley retire!!! I love everything about All Creatures. I have been to many vets in my life time and I have NEVER found a vet that even comes close to the care and compassion of Dr. Markley. I tell everyone about All Creatures. My animals trust him and that is huge to me. I've been to vets that scare the crap out of my animals. I don't know what I'll do if Dr. Markley ever retires. He MUST CLONE HIMSELF FOR THE FUTURE!! :):):)
-Wendy Zajac

Dr. Markley did a wonderful job of dealing with Bitsy on an emergency basis. He made the time to observe and diagnose Bitsy over a 24 hour period. He spent a lot of time with us even though he had a lot of other appointments to deal with. We love All Creatures and Dr. Markley.
- Kathy & Check H.

It is always clean and decorated beautifully for each holiday/season. I call with emergencies and you always work me into the schedule. I always receive excellent care from everyone-the vets, techs, front desk, etc. m The care and compassion are excellent and I recommend your clinic to everyone.
- Margaret K.

Everything was immaculate. We switched to their veterinary clinic. It was the best decision we ever made concerning our dog's health. This is the best Veterinary Clinic I've ever been to. My sweet girl Chloe had been sick for over two weeks. My old vet did nothing for her and we had her in three times. I had my sweet girl to your clinic and after the first visit she was better. The next day she stopped coughing. We are so thankful. We have 4 dogs so the other two will be in soon. We had two seen and two healed. We are forever grateful. everybody is so friendly. Thank you.
- Kami and Robert B.

Dr. Fitzwater was very good with Addy and myself. She made the visit so much easier.
- Lisa & Richard S.

We love you and the excellent care our critters have always received.
We always recommend you.

I can not say enough wonderful things! You are always so friendly no matter who I am working with and you all truly have our pets best interests at heart. I appreciate the care you give us every time we are there and could not ask for better doctors and nurses.
- Barbara P.

I have no complaints! You all provide great service, from the front desk, the techs, the vets, etc.!
- Margaret K.

Thanks. I moved from Cincinnati last Saturday, so I transferred the pet records to your practice last fall. But today was our first official visit to Wadsworth. My sister, Sue Shea, also started taking her fur daughter to Rittman (Grace) based on my research on the quality of your practice. Very nice. I appreciate it!
- Michael C.

The best care and people in the business.
- Ron G.

Always able to get my dogs an appointment the same day when they are ill. Thank you!!!
- Anonymous

Keep up the good work! Dr. Markley has cared for two of our past Airedales. Everything that he did for us was caring, highly medical, understanding etc. For this reason we have now brought our new Miniature Golden Doodle puppy to be cared for by Dr. Markley at what we consider the BEST veterinarian establishment. You continue to be great!! Just continue as you are! Thank you for being there for us and our special animals. God Bless you all!
- Dr. Ronald & Helen O.

Everyone takes great care of Ella & kitties! Thank you for everything you do for our family!!
- Stephne & Jeff G.

Your staff always receives me quickly, professionally and in a timely manner. I've always received good answers to any questions I may have. My kitty, Junior, needed a lot of care this last year and Dr. Jackson has been great with him. She shows genuine interest and concern for his and my well-being. She and her assistants have answered all questions and showed patience with me when I go on and on. I cannot stress enough how happy I've been with her care of my special guy. Everyone just keep doing what you're doing! And thank you for all your good work!!
- Renee H.

Keep up the good work!
- Gail & Tim E.

The staff and doctors are the best and treat my fur-babies like family.
Questions and concerns are addressed promptly and with the utmost respect. Doggie Daycare staff love my pets just as much as our family does. The best service provider for all my pets needs. I would like to see dog training brought into your lodge.
- Paula & Brandon B.

You are very good at taking time with the parents and answering questions we might have. Appreciated the Dr. telling me how much it was going to cost and being considerate of the expense.
- Eileen S.

You are doing very well! All is good. We are always impressed!!
- Kim & Mark S.

Already do a top-notch job. All Creatures is the only vet clinic I have used for years. I tell all my friends and acquaintances about the superb care and knowledge of all doctors and staff.
- Susan & Dennis S.

U need not do anything. Buck, Hope & Mommy think everything is perfect. Thank you for taking such wonderful care of us.
- Christine E.

You are doing a great job! Dr. Markley & Dr. Jackson are awesome! Even though I now live further away, I drive the extra distance to come to All Creatures. I have the utmost confidence in the care my pets will receive. Dr. Markely & Dr. Jackson -- you're the BEST.
- Barbara W.

Very efficient and courteous staff, top to bottom. I was really impressed at how thorough and effective the vet was with my pet. Keep up the good work!
- Colin S.

We are very happy with everything regarding the service you provide.
- Marshall & Patti T.

The front desk is always so friendly. Dr. Fitzwater is amazing with our pup. She is very friendly and it is clear our dog enjoys seeing her.
- Barbara P.

You are doing a great job. You take care of my do and I would not go to another vet. There is nothing to improve, everything is excellent.
- Frances G.

Pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful staff!
- Judy & Bob K.

Clinic is always clean. When a pet makes a mess, it is quickly taken care of. The clinic always doe4s their best to stay on time with appointments. Wait time has always been acceptable. This clinic does an excellent job caring for my dogs. The vets answer all of my questions and have show compassion above and beyond what I would expect. I can't imagine taking my dogs anywhere else.
-Dawn W.

Always accommodate my wishes and do great job with my beloved pets. Keep up the good work and kindness.
-Karen G.

No need to change anything. Dr. Jackson was outstanding in explaining everything concerning Abbey's surgery and her discharge.
-Lori R.

Your facility is always well maintained. Whenever I leave a voicemail, I get a responding phone call right away. Your staff has always been very patient with me and my sometimes lengthy explanations/questions regarding my cat. I've never considered the wait time on the phone or in the office to be too long. I cannot say enough about Dr. Jackson-my one kitty has been through a lot this past year and she has kept up-to-date on his condition and is so kind to him (and me!) The experience at All Creatures surpasses any other vet we've been to. Keep up the good work!
-Renee H.

I recommend All Creatures to all of my friends who have pets. I hold Dr. Fitzwater and Dr. Markley in very high regard.
-Nate S.

I think it would be impossible to improve on anything that All Creatures does.
-Ron G.

I appreciated getting a follow-up call two days after the appointment to see how my cat was doing. Also, I was offered an earlier appointment when there was a cancellation-that was very thoughtful on the part of your staff. Everyone I have come in contact with at both clinics and lodge have been pleasant and caring.
-Marilyn L.

The whole staff is very pleasant with my dog, Buckwheat, and me and that's what makes it nice bringing him there! When I take Buckwheat in, it is always a timely process and it is not long before we are on our way home! Buckwheat is treated like a king when we come for our appointments there! My husband jokes and tells Buckwheat that he's going to see his girlfriends that treat him so well!!
-Christine W.

Love All Creatures and the staff. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable and kind. They do not make you feel bad if you have forgotten something with your pet, and are very supportive when your pet has a serious health condition. Two thumbs up!!
-Joyce & Daniel D.

I requested a short-notice appointment and was fully accommodated. You do an excellent job!!
-James V.

Best vet around. We have three dogs and have been to several different vets. Well worth the drive since we live in Medina. Top notch care. Do not push expensive procedures or medications and truly care for the animals with their best interest in mind.
-Kristen & Brian B.

Absolutely the best clinic in the world! Bailey strains at leash to get inside where she's treated like their own pet. So obvious the staff really do love animals. Thanks to all for an outstanding job.
-Robert & Carolyn H.

Best place ever! Nothing needs changed! Love all you! Treat our pets as family. Made us and our pets as comfortable as possible. I recommend All Creatures to everyone with pets!
-Paula & Brandon B.

Facility is always neat and clean. We LOVE Dr. Zahurak and our precious cats. Our current cat seems to take well to her. We left our last vet and have made your office our "home"!
-Sherri & Jason G.

This practice is the best! From patient care to client care, everything is done so well. We would never consider taking our pets anywhere else and have been clients for almost 22 years. We highly recommend this practice.
-Kim & Mark S.

There isn't a better place or doctors to take your pet. Not much improvement is needed.
-Jack & Sarah L.

Extremely professional staff and pet care. Would highly recommend you to family and friends.
-George & Susan F.

I am totally happy with my experience at ACVC. I have been with Dr. Markley since he was in downtown Rittman and his practice was in a store front. I have moved from the area and continued to remain a loyal patron, driving over 2 hours one way to bring my quadruped children to see Dr. Markley. I trust no one else with the healthcare of my children. ACVC has provided me with A care and they have never disappointed me. I continue to advertise their services wherever I go and bring new clients as often as I can find them. I know that once they have received service from the ACVC team , they will not want to go anywhere else. Patrons for life and proud of it.
-Stacey W.

Dr. Markley & staff do an excellent job & we are very happy to have you for Pebbles and Dolly. You are all doing everything very well.
- Marylu H.

Friendly and well-educated staff. I have known Dr. Markley for 20 years! Helpful staff and compassionate! The healthcare team is Awesome! The new veterinary staff, Dr. Fitzwater, is so compassionate and caring and really made us feel comfortable. Yes, I would recommend this clinic. The Lodge is awesome too! Baxter loves his new friends!!!
–Kathleen & Tom Lepley

I have used vet practices before where dogs were the main focus and cats were an afterthought. My experience here is refreshing, you can tell the veterinarians really love cats.

I love how inviting the statues, grassy area, and general decor is outside. I also appreciated the candles for those grieving a loss. That is a respectful touch. Dr. Jackson is in more demand, so it is not as easy to schedule an appointment with her, but she is worth waiting for because of her knowledge and level of care for my pugs. I felt the wait time has improved since our last visit. It is much less! Dr. Jackson is very thorough in her examination and explanation to me. I love how she presents options so my pet receives optimal care. I know by attitude that she loves animals and is passionate about her job. I completely trust her to advise me and give the best care to my pugs. I have and will continue to recommend All Creatures and Dr. Jackson.
-Shannon & James S.

We highly recommend you to all of our friends and family. You guys are awesome! Thank you for all that you do and taking the time to care and make us feel special.
-Ralph & Christine M.

It is obvious that everyone is willing to explain and talk about anything you need help with concerning our pups. I have recommended All Creatures many times. It is comforting to know the doctors and staff are so caring and knowledgeable.
-Ginger & Brian Miller

Outstanding staff and facility! Always great service! I always have a positive experience-you love our pets as much as we do. Thank you!
-Betty & Todd Hoefges

I drive a long way to go to All Creatures, but it is well worth it! My sister, Kelly Cramblett, recommended All Creatures and I loved it. I tried several places closer to my house but your clinic is worth the drive. Thank you for taking good care of Stella and me.
-Becky & Chuck Gezze

We took Illene to the doggie daycare. It was an awesome experience. She received her needed shots while at her visit, which was super convenient. Thank you to the entire staff for their excellent care of Illene!
-Mandy & Tim Sutherland

I liked how the waiting area was, plenty of space to keep scared kitties away from the large dogs. Also the bench seating allows a cat carrier to be easily placed on it, rather than having to set them on the floor. The doctor was sweet with my little kittens. You can tell she honestly loves animals and loves her job. Also appreciated the complimentary nail trim for them.
-Abby Bence

Staff and facility are great. Our dog absolutely loves her visits and strains to get inside. All of your staff seem to genuinely love animals and are so friendly and interactive with them. Smiles and treats-doggie Disneyworld. We would not take our dog anywhere else. We always feel very confident about her treatment at your facility.
-Robert & Carolyn Hahn

The cost of care is what keeps me at your place. I like how you keep the costs lower than other vets in town.
-Karen & Mike Flanigan

We have seen three different vets at your clinic, and we feel all have become friends. They have made us feel that we are important. I appreciated the patience you all showed in answering my questions. A wise doctor once told me, “I can teach anyone anything, but I can’t teach personality. I always hire for that particular trait,” and that is exactly what draws me to All Creatures Veterinary Clinic.
-Always grateful, Ellie Marrandette

Everyone is very pleasant and professional. I really appreciate the service and care given from everyone!
-DeWayne & Judy Fulton

Our family really appreciates your facility and employees. Thank you for everything! We always recommend both the vet care and Lodge to all of our friends.
-Kim & Russ Nagelkirk

I was impressed with the thoroughness of our visit and the feeling that no one was in a hurry to get to the next customer. I appreciate the findings and feedback while the exam is taking place. The interaction between pet owner, tech, and vet make being your customer fun and rewarding. I like that my child was included in the conversation. Children should know the responsibility of pet ownership, which is why I bring them along.
-Jane Bocka

You took the time to answer any and all of our concerns and offered tips and info on how to handle different issues we had concerning all three of our dogs.
-Linda & Charles Watkins

Your service is excellent. We always feel that the team values our pets as if they were their own. They listen, show concern, and take time needed to explain things. We will continue driving from Medina to Rittman because of the service, experience, and expertise of the All Creatures staff. We highly recommend All Creatures to friends and family members.
-Jessica Heid

Lodge Testimonials

I hate leaving my dogs, but the fact that they walked back to the kennels without looking back, made me feel that they were comfortable from the start. I can get cheaper kenneling elsewhere, but I am willing to pay the extra cost knowing that your facility is exceptionally clean, the dogs are let out often, friendly staff, a vet is next door if needed, and so many more options available.
-Sharon & Tom Bilowsky

I am just in for boarding not vet services. All seems good.
-Paul & Joyce Weinsheimer

At the Lodge check-in, there is plenty of assistance to greet and take your pets while you finish the paperwork with another staff member.
-Pat M.

The girls at Daycare are so friendly, and Pawley loves them, so I take that as no improvement could happen. The nice things they do for the pets are above what we expect but certainly enjoyable, such as photos and special comments.
-Charlene & Gary Platz

We were pleased to have Lily stay at The Lodge, and over the last year, Lily has enjoyed attending your Doggie Day Care. Whoever’s responsible for the marketing and social extras (pictures, daily report cards, smiling staff)…all is greatly appreciated!
-Carol Strong

I have been bringing my dog to The Lodge for three years, and he loves it. We are extremely happy. I truly commend the good job the girls at The Lodge are doing. They are wonderful!
-Romila & Patrick Rodrigo
