Overcoming Adversity Together

Overcoming Adversity Together
September 2, 2020

Hurricane season is upon us and we know that curbside appointments are going to become a bit more challenging across many of our practices. As demonstrated in our last article, a few of our hospitals have already gotten a glimpse at what’s to come. Knowing that, we’re proud of our practice teams for continuing to spread joy, even when faced with adversity.

Overcoming Adversity - Devonshire Animal Clinic - ferretsDevonshire Veterinary Clinic - Anderson, Indiana
These fun loving ferrets weren’t feeling their best when they first arrived at Devonshire Veterinary Clinic. Luckily, the Devonshire team was able to turn things around and make sure Ares and Apollo were on their way to feeling tip top by the time they left. These two cuties can conquer anything as a pair and they serve as a great example of why it’s important to stick together when the going gets tough.

Sometimes you’ve got to get a bit silly to make it through what would be an otherwise uncomfortable experience. And that’s exactly what Kilo the German Shepherd did to lighten the mood at Harris Boulevard Veterinary Clinic, even after he had to have his blood drawn. Always a good sport, Kilo knows the team will take good care of him and be as quick as possible.

When it comes to transporting patients in and out of Solomons Veterinary Medical Center, Spencer and Mia are both practical and fun. Though we’ve seen several teams break out their galoshes for rainy trips to the parking lot, Spencer’s umbrella hat is truly next level. These two have certainly found a way to make a dreary day just a little bit brighter and bring a smile to their clients.


Overcoming Adversity - Greenville Veterinary Clinic, 3 legged goatGreenville Veterinary Clinic - Greenville, Illinois
If you look closely, you’ll notice that Snowball is standing strong using just three legs. This unique little lamb had to have one of her front legs amputated but that hasn’t slowed her down a bit. After her surgery, her owners brought her home and provided her with a clean, dry place for her to heal and we’re happy to report she’s doing well. Snowball’s story serves as an important reminder that we can always adapt, no matter the circumstances. Check out Greenville Veterinary Clinic’s Facebook page to see a video of her new strut.


Overcoming Adversity - Indian Walk Veterinary Center, Veterinary ExternIndian Walk Veterinary Center - Newtown, Pennsylvania
Transitioning from a school setting to a practice setting isn’t always easy but Chelsea, a Manor College extern working at Indian Walk Veterinary Center, has risen to the challenge. Although she’s only been externing at Indian Walk for a week so far, she’s already shown the team she’s detail oriented, compassionate, quick to learn, and hardworking. Her externship only lasts for a total of five weeks, but we can tell she’s making a lasting impression at the practice.
