COPLEY — Copley Pet Vet is a two-year-old veterinary business located at 2777 Copley Road.

Owned by Dr. Connie White Lawless, Pet Vet offers services such as wellness and injury exams, vaccinations, emergency care, surgery, microchipping and nail trimming, and also sells dog and cat food and heartworm and flea and tick medications. In addition to clinic visits, she makes farm calls when necessary.

“I offer low stress handling in a caring and compassionate environment,” said Lawless.

Lawless said she strives to keep costs for pet owners as low as possible to ensure animals get the medical care they need.

In addition to treating dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, birds and other animals, Lawless said she takes the time to educate pet owners about their animals.

She also offers free “happy” visits for dogs that are fearful about coming into a clinic. Lawless explained these visits allow owners to bring their pet to the clinic, visit with the vet and then return home in order to become familiar with the environment under circumstances that do not require shots or other procedures that may stress the pet.

Lawless said she also offers “Cat Clipnosis,” which teaches owners how to naturally relax their cats to reduce stress and make them easier to handle when giving medications, clipping nails or grooming them.

“My goal is not only to make sure pets are cared for medically, but their lives and the lives of their owners are as happy and stress free as possible,” said Lawless.

Lawless is a 1989 graduate of Copley High School and received her veterinarian degree from The Ohio State University. She moved back to Copley in 2011.

Pet Vet will be participating in the Copley Creekside Farmers’ Market’s Dog Days Aug. 28.

“We will be handing out information, raffling off pet baskets with lots of goodies, offering pet microchipping for a reduced price of $25 [the regular price is $35 plus exam fee] and doing clicker demonstrations.”

Appointments at Pet Vet are suggested, but walk-ins are welcome. To make an appointment, call 330-576-3095.

Business hours are Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pet Vet is closed Thursdays.
