Dear Customers of Bethel Animal Clinic,

I regret to inform you that effective June 1st, 2022, I am closing my practice due to my retirement. I will no longer be available to take care of your pet’s medical needs after that date. It has been my pleasure to serve New Carlisle and surrounding Miami Valley communities for the past 46 years with affordable veterinary care, but as they say “all good things must come to an end.”

For your convenience, you will be able to obtain copies of your veterinary medical records. In accordance with Ohio Administrative Code 4741-1-21, there will be a nominal fee of $1.00/page not to exceed $5.00 to make copies of your chart to cover copy and transmittal costs. If you choose to pick up the copy of your record so that you may personally take it to your new physician, please do so by June 1st 2022.

After June 1st, 2022, your records will be held securely for at least 3 years from your last visit. To obtain copies of your records after June 2nd, 2022, there will be an additional retrieval fee of $20 for each request in addition to the copy and transmittal costs above. To obtain a copy of your records after June 1st, 2022, please use either of the following contact methods, by email at: or by post at:
