The Clinic

Lunsford Veterinary Services, Inc. was founded by Dr. Michael Lunsford in the summer of 1997 as a strictly mobile, large animal practice serving the Northwest Arkansas region. In 1999, he was joined by his wife, Dr. Niki Lunsford, who began providing part time assistance with the growing small animal patient load. With the birth of their son, in 2001, our “family practice” was also born.

In October of 2002, Lunsford Veterinary Services, Inc. opened the doors of Lunsford Veterinary Care Center, their new full service small animal hospital in Tontitown, Arkansas.


Lunsford Veterinary Care Center maintains three full time veterinarians. Doctors are focused on their area of interest to ensure that patients receive the best care possible. Dr. Michael is dedicated to performing large animal services, Dr. Niki provides small animal services along with some small ruminant medicine, and Dr. Chelsea Baxley tackles large and small animal medicine. In addition to our doctors, we retain a caring and enthusiastic staff who genuinely shares our passion for animals and their owners. Our diversity places us in the unique position of treating most domestic animals that you may keep as pets, including, but not limited to dogs, cats,  cattle, horses, sheep, goats, llamas, alpacas, even a few pigs!


It is important to us to develop relationships with you and your pets, companions, and/or livestock to ensure a mutual level of trust and respect so that you can be confident about our recommendations and the quality of care we wish to provide.

Office Hours

Our mission is to celebrate the human-animal bond by providing extraordinary service and through education of animal caretakers in an environment that is nurturing and rewarding for our clients, their animals, our veterinary staff, and our veterinarians.


We strive to accomplish this by developing interpersonal relationships between ourselves and our clients and patients, building trust so that you know our recommendations are based solely on what is medically best for our patients.
