  • "Bach Veterinary Clinic is an excellent place to take your pet. Dr. Bach and the staff are excellent. They are very caring, knowledgeable and efficient. They care for my dogs like they would their own. I highly recommend this practice if you are looking for top notch veterinary care."
    Maggie D, Independence-client since 2006
  • "When my husband and I moved from Northern Kentucky 16 years ago, we had taken our dogs to Dr. Bach for about three years. We felt our dogs received excellent care. When we returned to Northern Kentucky in 2010, we called and made an appointment to talk to Dr. Bach to introduce and reacquaint ourselves with him. Our dogs receive excellent care from Dr. Bach and his staff are the greatest. They are so professional and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Bach."
    Brenda B, Independence-client since 1997 and 2011
  • "I came into the office with a sick dog on a Saturday morning, and without an appointment, and somehow they fit me in. My dog wasn't even a patient there "yet"! I will never go anywhere else. The staff was very welcoming, accommodating, and knowledgeable. For a reasonable price, and without waiting for hours, I left with a diagnosis, medication for my pet, and a follow up plan. The veteran assistant was especially helpful and sweet. They really cared about my family pet from the moment I walked in! I would recommend them over and over again. I will try out their grooming services next!"

    Ray S, Butler-client since 2014
  • "Dr. Bach has treated our pet rabbit and our farm animals. He's done an excellent job dealing with both. He's knowledgable, kind, caring and efficient. His staff is excellent as well. We had an emergency with our sheep who had problems lambing and Dr. Bach came out ASAP. Even though we lost her, he tried to help her until the very end."

  • "Dr; Bach was very kind and professional. I was in need of emergency care for a 2 month old calf, and he was there even before I was expecting him. He did a good examination and treatment and the price was fair and reasonable.
    I will be ready to call him again when the need arises."
    Barbara D, Covington-client since 2013
  • "Love the Staff! Love Dr. Bach! They are very nice and informative. I don't feel like they are rushing me out the door when i come in. They answer all of my questions and provide me with knowledge and feedback. They all have great personalities and they love and treat my dogs the way I do! Couldn't ask for a better place to care for my pets."
    Steve and Tarin H, Walton-client since 2008
  • "We have taken our pets to Dr. Bach for over 20 years! He is extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful, and warm-hearted. He takes the time to educate pet parents on the condition of their pet. Dr. Bach and his staff are always attentive, prompt, and take the time to get to know your pet and your family. It is comforting to know that whether we are there for a well-check or an emergency, we have never had to question whether or not our pet is in good hands. We have never considered taking our pets anywhere else."
    Vondella C, Independence-client since 2002
  • "Thanks so much for taking great care of all go over and above caring for your patients, especially Scruffy, he is so happy:):)!!!"
    Mary Catherine B, Walton-client since 2009
  • "Dr. Bach and his staff are excellent. My dog Elli needed double hernia surgery. Another vet clinic in the area performed her last surgery, and she suffered afterward. But after her surgery at Bach Veterinary Clinic, Elli was a happy dog - you would never have known she had just had surgery. Dr. Bach takes his time to spend with his patients and pet parents. His expertise and judgment are priceless. I also like that I didn't have to drop off my dog the night before - I dropped her off the morning of her surgery. Everyone is very friendly - they even helped me out to my car after the surgery. I hope Dr. Bach doesn't plan on retiring any time soon - I don't think there are vets out there like Dr. Bach. His office is well run, clean, friendly and of course the vet care is exceptional and I am very pleased with the outcome. I would definitely recommend!"
    Stephanie M, Edgewood -client since 1999
  • "Dr Bach always treats our pigs well. We tell everyone we meet where we take our pigs."
    Roberta O, Independence-client since 2012
  • "I drive from Cincinnati to have my dog groomed at Bach. :)"
    Patty M, Cincinnati-client since 2014
  • "I brought my dog in for grooming for the first time and was very happy with the results!"
    Sherry M, Independence-client since 2013
  • "We have been extremely happy with our grooming services. Our dog is old and very nervous and, in fact, we were not able to get her groomed at several other groomers. We are so thankful that they have the "touch" and are able to groom Daisey, and she looks, and smells perfect when done! Thank you!!"
    Anonymous-verified client
  • "Very pleased with the 2 dog groomings. Our Schnauzers looked better than we have ever seen them, after a trimming. Thank you!"
    Donna D, Independence-client since 2013
  • "I am always pleased by the grooming offered by the clinic. The staff is always on time and professional. An important clue is our dog's reaction before and after appointments - he doesn't show displeasure except when separating from us to be groomed."
    Blake S, Fort Mitchell-client since 1998
