Excerpt:North Ridge Veterinary Hospital not looking too far for employees
Things are a lot more spread out around Big Creek Veterinary Hospital these days.
With seven exam rooms, surgical spaces, an associates' office and conference room, a spacious lobby and several other additions that the staff is still acclimating itself to, everything and everybody isn't always visible within the new Concord Township facility. That is starting to concern Dr. Joel Percival, the hospital's founder and one of two partners.

One of the newest employees at the North Ridge Veterinary Hospital isn't that new.
In fact, he's been working there since he was 12.
John Pierce used to work as a "kennel boy."
He cleaned cages and picked up after animals while his father, Robert Pierce, worked as medical director at the Madison Township veterinary hospital.
"I've been working with my dad since I was old enough to work," John Pierce said.
