The Long Lake Veterinary Clinic was established by Dr. Dan Hartnett in 1971. This small clinic was transformed from a Barber shop and convenience store nicknamed "The Mud Hole" into what it is today. Dr. Dan continues to own, run and work as a veterinarian in the practice today alongside his two daughters, both of which followed in his footsteps and became veterinarians as well.
