We have a variety of different health care team members that provide service to you and your pet.  Ranging from client services representatives to registered veterinary technicians, from veterinary assistants to kennel techs /attendants, and from veterinarians to Practice Manager groomers, each person is thoroughly trained to handle your needs and those of your pet.   Some of these positions require college training and licensure, such as a veterinarian or veterinary technician.  This is the equivalent of a nurse in a medical office or hospital.   Even those who are not college trained receive extensive on-the-job training, and all team members are required to attend in-house team meetings and training sessions as well as off-site continuing education seminars. 
We're here to help you and your pets, so please don't hesitate to ask us questions, we're happy to answer any questions you may have.

Our team members and especially Dr. Hans are willing to provide seminars to any organization on an availability basis.    We are often seen at various 4-H, scouting,  or school groups doing anything from career discussions to demonstrations on pet care or training, often with a few furry friends in tow.  If your group is interested is scheduling a demonstration or hospital tour, please contact our office manager, Robin. 

You may also meet a student observer, high school intern, or volunteer when you are here.  We try to make ourselves available to people who want a chance to see "behind the scene"  activity to help them decide about careers in veterinary medicine.  Sometimes we will also have veterinary students (called externs) doing part of their school work at our hospital.
