Happy Anniversary to Us!
It was one year ago that I started officially driving to homes to treat pets. I had been doing it for friends and family for a while, but didn’t really have the medications or equipment. When I decided to make a career of it, I wanted to do it right. (Many of you know me: do it right, or don’t do it at all!) Once I had the equipment, insurance, licenses, and mountains of other forms completed, I started the practice. Jenn, my technician, joined me in late February. She has been a vet tech for 15 years, and her input helped us morph into a more efficient practice. Also, she tolerates hours in the car with my corny jokes and navigation skills.
The best thing about this job is the people and pets that we meet. Quite often do Jenn and I get in the car after an appointment and say something like “They are so awesome” or “what a cool cat.” We truly love working with our clients and patients. Coming to the house gives us time to cover all the bases and see the pet in their own setting. It’s a happy side effect that it often allows us to rub tummies and scratch ears for a while.
Thank you, each and every one of you, for making our first year a success. We hope to continue to grow and help more animals in 2014!
