Established by Drs. Monica Kucher and Eric Mueller in 2001, Good Hands Veterinary Hospital is a full-service practice that provides exemplary care to cats and dogs in the beautiful city of Athens.

A 1989 graduate of Michigan State University, Dr. Kucher practiced veterinary medicine in the Athens area for over 20 years. She earned a reputation for being a great veterinarian who truly cared about her patients prior to her passing in 2016. Dr. Mueller earned his DVM degree from Michigan State University and worked as a surgery professor at the University of Georgia. He is joined by Drs. David Lavernoich, Heather Falany, Zachary Nesbit, and Kim Lathrup.

The doctors are supported by their hospital manager of 10 years, Mark Allen, and an enthusiastic team of veterinary technicians, kennel assistants, receptionists, and groomers.

The practice was originally purchased by Dr. Becky Salinger in 1999 and, in 2008, Dr. Susan Paulic became a partner. Austinburg Veterinary Clinic has been providing compassionate care to companion animals in the Austinburg area for over two decades. In fact, this AAHA-accredited animal hospital was one of five finalists for the AHA-Accredited Practice of the Year Award in 2012.

Both Dr. Salinger and Dr. Paulic are graduates of The Ohio State University. Dr. Paulic has special interests in pain management, zoonotic diseases, and soft tissue and orthopedic surgery. She particularly enjoys working with exotic pets, small animals, and birds.

The doctors are supported by a tight knit group of veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, and receptionists who love what they do.

Austinburg Veterinary Clinic offers their clients a variety of services, ranging from wellness exams and vaccines to boarding, microchipping, laser therapy, and surgery.

We are thrilled to partner with two practices that strive to provide outstanding veterinary care to their patients, all while treating them as if they were their own pets. It is our pleasure to welcome Good Hands Veterinary Hospital and Austinburg Veterinary Clinic to the VetCor family!
