TECHNICIANS

Our group of technicians are people that aren't afraid to get dirty. Their day can go everywhere from surgeries, exams with puppies, farm call emergencies, to ensuring you and your pet feel comfort at their last moments. The team strives to go above and beyond for each individual patient and will do whatever it takes to make them feel comfortable. With this group of people, it is not unusual to see them in the kennel with a scared dog to soothe them or staying late to help a patient out.​
