The hospital was founded by Dr. Steven H. Harman, the current practice owner, in 1978 following his graduation from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Originally, the practice consisted of Dr. Harman and his wife Jean working out of the basement of a small brick house on Rt. 40. Since 1978, the original practice has seen many additions and remodeling. In 2003, the practice welcomed two new veterinarians and quickly outgrew the facility. In March of 2006 ground was broken for the new and current hospital. The previous hospital site is the current home of Hillside Pet Hotel and Boutique.
