“Dr Wixsom and her staff took excellent care of our ferret Link. He was gravely ill when he arrived and they did everything possible to save him. He passed away this Sunday and when they found out she called us to just check on us and let us know they all cared for Link also.”

“Dr. Wixom is so caring and kind. It is obvious she loves animals. Dr. Wixom has a wider and deeper knowledge base than the average vet I’ve encountered in my life. Highly recommend Guardian Animal!”
Judith O.

“Dr. Wixom was very helpful in alleviating concerns with my cat, and demonstrated high knowledge of recent studies concerning his potential heart condition. Thank you.”
Joshua O.

“I highly recommend this veterinary practice! Their staff were speedy and friendly from booking the appointment to assisting my pet and I while we were there. The vet is very qualified and offered us additional options to improve the health of our pets (something our previous vet did not offer). Their practice is holistic and pet-centered. We are switching all of our pet’s care to this medical center.”

“We took our parakeets in for a check up. Would give 10 stars if possible. Excellent experience. Very knowledgeable and kind staff. Can not say enough good things about our visit. All of my questions were answered and the doctor even posed for pictures with our babies.”

Mindy L.

“Literally the BEST animal clinic around. I’ve never met people so friendly & passionate about they animals they care for! Getting a new puppy is often very overwhelming at times, but with their puppy package they take the time to thoroughly explain & show how to give him the care he wants and needs! My dog loves going in and getting to love on all the workers, especially Dr. Wixsom!”

Emily L.

“Extremely good vet, very thorough and great staff! Wouldn’t take my pets anywhere else.”
Kristi R.

“Dr. MJ Wixsom is truly caring and compassionate. It is so apparent she truly does care about your furbaby. She takes her time with you and makes sure you understand not only what, but why. My Max is feeling so much better, thanks to her!”
Becky S.

“Last week I brought my 19-year-old cat in for a second opinion after I left the first place I took her feeling uninformed and upset. I ended up having to put my cat to sleep, so it was the first and only time they saw my cat, but Dr. Wixsom and her staff were so kind about it all and really walked me through what was happening and what my options were. After my cat passed, Dr. Wixsom brought me an imprint of her paws and later that day the office sent me a rose with the sweetest sympathy card. Such small gestures and acts of kindness meant so much to me on such a hard day. I will definitely be bringing all my animals here when I’m in Ashland in the future.”
Kristina L.

“Dr Wixom thank goodness for you! The only veterinarian who cares for parrots in the Ashland area!”
Leslie K.

“Dr. Wixsom and all of the staff have been nothing but awesome with my 2 dogs and 1 cat. They are compassionate and always treat my fur babies with care! Dr. Wixsom has stayed diligent trying to find the safest and best allergy treatment for my now senior dog. To me, their jobs are very stressful and emotionally trying. Thanks to all of them!”
Sharon B.

“I have never had a bad experience. The doctor is compassionate and knowledgeable. The staff is kind. Highly recommend!”
Jim H.

“Dr. Wixsom is awesome!! She and her staff helped us in a dire time when our kitten was ill. I would highly recommend Guardian Animal Medical Center.”
Jessica S.

“We went to the same animal clinic for 20 years with no problem. About 2 years ago my 2 year old miniature schnauzer began scratching her eyes and the hair around her eyes fell out. After 3 trips to our long time clinic we had to do something. Dr. Wixom seen her the day we called. My dog had a lot of eye problems and had to be put on several meds. If we had not taken her to Dr. Wixom there would be a good chance my schnauzer would be blind today. These people are awesome and Dr. Wixom in my opinion the best ever!”
Samuel W.

“Had an emergency with my little guy and needed vet care asap. My usual vet couldn’t see me and neither could anyone in the area. These guys were amazing and took my furbaby in with no questions asked even though they were all booked up for the day. Doctor Wixsom and the staff at GAMC saved his life and I couldn’t be more grateful for the care that they took in making sure he was healthy and ready to come home again. Reasonably priced and very clean facilities. They also offer pet boarding. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing emergency vet care.”
Kaytlin H.

“When my pup C.C. ended up on the losing end of a dog scuffle, the folks at Guardian were literally life savers. Their care and compassion goes above and beyond. Thank you all for taking such good care of my Bubba.”
Jonathan H.

“Friendly staff. Very informative doctor. Had two of my sugar gliders neutered and had nothing but good results and a positive experience. Thank you!”
James J.

“Thank you so much for your help with Bentley. I miss him so much, but I feel very secure in the idea that we did all we could. Also, I think it was amazing of you to include my boy Bentley in your article in the paper. That made our day and really made me feel like part of the Guardian family. Thank you for that. It meant a lot to us. Thanks again”

“My first encounter was under dire distress. My 6 mo old mastiff mix was unresponsive after a short period outside. I was clueless as to what happened and rushed him over as fast as I could with 2 young kids in the car. Jay’s Mom met me to intercept the kids. He passed in my arms as I was carrying him inside. MJ and her staff let me take him to an exam room to give me a minute. MJ still looked at him and thought that it may have been an unknown birth defect since he came from such a large litter (22 pups). They even took care of him and placed him on the back seat of my car. In the next week, I received a piece of mail from Guardian Animal. I assumed it was a bill… no it wasn’t. They mailed me a sympathy card instead. Thank you, MJ for providing such great sympathy and care on one of the worst days of this fur-mama’s life.”
Destiny C.

“Dr. Wixsom and her staff are wonderful and have always taken such good care of our dogs. We walked through old age, illness, and saying good-bye to our last two dogs with her and her staff, and they were knowledgeable and compassionate. Today we brought our new puppy in to meet her, and we are so grateful to know Sally Star is in such good hands. Highly recommend!”
Lacy L.

“We’ve been taking our dog here since we got him and the entire staff has always been great. Dr. Wixsom loves the pets she treats.”
Miranda P.

“I love how my furbabies are treated here! Such a wonderful environment and they always take time to answer any questions.”
Megan R.

“Dr. Wixsom and her staff are both loving and competent. I have taken all my dogs there for over 20 years for treatment and boarding. My Bailey doesn’t trust easily and though she is in the end stage of heart failure, she is at ease in their presence which tells me a lot about her care. Dr. Wixsom is happy to explain treatment options and costs involved. Thank you all so much for your care and for making us feel like part of the extended family.”
