Dr. Lori C. Bieber, Owner
Since her childhood, Dr. Bieber felt a special connection with animals. After graduating from The Ohio State University with a degree in veterinary medicine she began working in a local practice and eventually decided to venture out on her own. She opened South Russell Veterinary Hospital in 1999 as a sole proprietor and the practice has grown every year. In 2017 she decided to expand the practice and move to a much larger building to better accommodate her growing clientele. She moved the practice to Newbury, Ohio in December 2017. The practice was re-named “Cricket Ridge Animal Hospital” after her beloved Pomeranian “Cricket”. Dr. Bieber’s philosophy has always been that your pets are a part of your family and they deserve the best care possible. She lives in Munson with her husband Dan, two dogs, six cats, two horses and seven ducks.
