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 Newbury with her husband Dan, three dogs, five cats, two horses and six ducks. Outside of work she enjoys competing in agility with her miniature poodle “Sprig”.
