Dr. Bob Litkovitz was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University in 1987, and his doctorate of veterinarian medicine from The Ohio State University in 1991.

"You will not find another clinic in the area that treats you as well and there are no Vets that care as much as Dr Bob. Truly they care about the best treatment path for the patient. We took our dog to Dr Bob initially as a second opinion on a knee issue and we have come to trust him as our regular vet. The Treemont Animal Clinic goes above and beyond for their patients..."

"I wish I could give this 10 stars. Decided to try this Vet today after 8 years with my previous Vet's office. My only regret was that I waited so long to make the switch...We went in for wellness exams and they never had to go on a scary exam table which also only heightens their anxiety normally. Dr. Matt got down on the floor and made them feel comfortable..."
