In his many travels he has enjoyed all aspects of veterinary medicine but has special interests in dental treatments, ophthalmology, surgery, and diagnostic imaging.

Louise is known to the team as the clinic cat, but she would prefer to see her role as overall-supervisor-to-everyone. Her primary daily responsibilities include: making sure she alerts all the team as to her mealtime needs(and she has been known to trick us into thinking she has not been fed yet...even though she has!), she usually attends any meetings and interviews to make sure her input is offered, and is always present for any inventory boxes being unpacked- she assists by batting at any packaging filler. She enjoys the simple things in clinic life, like chicken churu treats, stealing any office chairs when they become vacant and watching the goldfish swim in their tank. She joined the team in 2020 and plans to continue her role for years to come. Don’t let her judgy expression fool you; she is a sweet lady and a wonderful team member to have around!
