dr george stokes dvm 200pxIt is with mixed feelings that we announce the upcoming retirement of Dr. George Stokes from Ridgeville Animal Hospital.

Dr. Stokes has been an esteemed member of the Ridgeville Animal Hospital family for over 40 years, and we're going to miss him dearly.

We'd like to leave you with these words from Dr. Stokes:
