Although we can’t all be as close with one another the way we usually are during the holidays, our practice teams are getting some extra TLC from their patients to make up for it. See what we’re talking about in our last post as we close out 2020 with these stories of kindness and support.
East Hartford Animal Clinic - East Hartford, Connecticut
Curbside service is currently the norm for many of our practices and East Hartford Animal Clinic is no exception. They call this “curbside and cute faces,” but we prefer to call it what it is - world-class service. Pictured is Precious, a practice tech, handing off Finn, the 11-month-old Cockapoo, to his owner, Natalie. This pair is new to the practice this year and the team looks forward to seeing them again in 2021.
Village Veterinary Practice - Clarendon Hills, Illinois
Tradition reigns supreme during the holiday season which is why Village Veterinary Practice joined other local businesses to decorate trees in the green - one of their absolute favorite holiday activities. To put a spin on this yearly tradition, Dr. King, who’s new to the practice, led the team in making these adorable ornaments. The team was able to paint them during their downtime, resulting in some much needed stress relief.
Austinburg Veterinary Clinic - Austinburg, Ohio
When 14-week-old Daizy, a miniature dachshund, gave her mom a little bit of a scare, the team at Austinburg Veterinary Clinic was ready and willing to comfort them both. As it turns out, Daizy drank her water too quickly, sneezed into her bowl, and felt a bit under the weather for a while. Luckily, the next day she was back to her happy self.
The Animal Doctor - Ventura, California
The team at The Animal Doctor sent out a message to all of their clients letting them know how much they miss seeing them in person, but that they’re glad they can continue serving them. Being the thoughtful group they are, they also reminded their clients that they are the reason they chose to work in the veterinary field.
Parkside Animal Care Center - Green Bay, Wisconsin
Using her talents to raise money for the Green Bay Animal Rescue, Molly, a certified vet tech at Parkside Animal Care Center, crafted these scratching posts by hand. This was a hot item for cat-loving fans of the Milwaukee Brewers, and it brought the rescue $200 in donations. Parkside has since offered other homemade scratching posts to an additional animal rescue partner, Brewster’s Place, to help raise money for them too.
