About Fox Veterinary Hospital, Inc.
Fox Veterinary Hospital, Inc. is a 3rd generation family practice. Starting in 1951 with Charles "Doc" Fox after graduating from The Ohio State University Veterinary School in 1939. Doc's son William joined FVH in 1976 also after graduating from OSU Vet School. In 2009 Williams daughter, Lisa also joined FVH after graduating from OSU Vet School. Dr. Samuel Speck joined FVH in 1989 and Dr. Joseph Urig in 1992. Dr. Charles Fox has since passed, Dr. William Fox has since retired and Dr. Lisa Fox has branched off to run her own mobile holistic veterinary practice. Dr. Speck and Dr. Urig keep the Fox name living on in loving memory of Dr. Charles Fox. So when we say we are family, we mean it.
