While helping to care for your beloved pet, we are often asked about our own furry friends. Many of us practically have our own zoo! And just like you, we LOVE to show them off! Here are some of our staff members' pets.
Ramona is a french bulldog/Boston Terrier mix belonging to Vet Technician Melissa. She is a rambunctious young girl, but at times but prefers laying on the couch or working on her tan. She has never met a person/animal she didn't like. The staff has nicknamed her "Rhino" due to her tank like body and the way she runs. Ramona also has a feline friend named Bernie- pictures coming soon!
This lovable orange kitty lives with our Clinic Supervisor, Outi. He is a curious guy and likes spending time outside on his leash exploring the yard. He also enjoys play time with his siblings whose pictures will be coming soon.
Frankie & Piccolo
Our Practice Manager, Suzette, two adorable furry friends at home!
Frankie, a handsome orange fellow, is almost 5 and enjoys cuddling with his buddies on cold nights. Piccolo, a Rag Doll mix, is also almost 5 and would prefer Chinese noodles and Wheat Thins over fishy cat food any day!
This gorgeous "Coconut Retriever" belongs to our Surgical Supervisor, Lindsey. Fin is a very active 5 year old who enjoys Sunday drives around Ocean Drive in Newport. He also finds joy in playing with his new little (human) brother, James.
Savannah belongs to one of our boarding assistants, Lindsay. She is a Coconut Retriever from Anguilla. Savannah is very energetic and loves playing with her canine friends! Her favorite thing to do is run off leash, but never goes far from her mom!
Sherwin & Chewy
Sherwin is a stunning 10 year old cat who belongs to one of our vet techs, Kim. He loves shredding paper and taking long naps. Chewy is a 5 year old Lionhead mix who enjoys throwing his bowl around and playing with his feline brother.
Echo, Tookie, Matsi
Echo was rescued from a shelter in Tennessee in 2010 by Dave, another of
our technicians. She has an unlimited supply of energy, and loves
doing tricks and spending time with her feline friends, Tookie and
Andy, one of our technicians, named his furry friend Kenny Powers, after the lead
character on HBO's "Eastbound and Down". He is a 2 year old basset hound/pug mix who enjoys long walks on the
beach, not knowing the meaning of personal space, eating, and snoring.
owned by our receptionist Danielle, is a 6 month old Golden Retriever, who
likes to spend as much time as he can running along the beach, chasing birds
and playing on slides. When not enjoying various outdoor activities you can
find him playing with his favorite squeaky frog or on the lookout for his
arch-nemesis, the vacuum!
is the housemate of one of our techs, Katie. He loves to watch TV by the
candlelight. Bloodworms are his favorite treat. He loves flirting with just
about any finger that comes along and makes great bubble nests!
a 7 year old Daschund, rules the home of one of our vet techs, Andrew. He
enjoys laying in the sun, playing tug-of-war, and getting into the trash. Yoshi
has a part-time job protecting rawhides, but normally he just eats them.
one of our vet techs, is the proud owner of this cutie, a 5 year old Labrador
Retriever. Jake enjoys eating socks, swimming, hiking, and playing with his
friends. He hopes to persuade his mom to get another dog soon, so he can have a
a "cavapoo," belongs to one of our veterinarians, Dr. Wirth! This
adorable 2 year old pup enjoys chasing squirrels and "playing" with
his feline friends, Kiwi and Mango.
fine fellas belong to Becky, our Receptionist Supervisor. Turkey grows his gray
ear tufties in the spring and sheds them in the fall. He insists on
kneading your stomach after any meal. He is a friendly, easy going, big fella
with the tiniest silent "meow".
Hannah & Lucy
one of our technicians, is the proud mother of Hannah and Lucy! Hannah is a 3yr
old lab mix who was adopted from a rescue and brought up to NE on a transport
from Tennessee. She loves playing with her friends, going on walks in downtown
Newport, and taking naps- either in the sun or curled up in as many blankets as
possible. Lucy is a 10 year old beauty that Katie just adopted last year. Though she is
an older lady she is still a kitten at heart and loves nothing more than to
play with her mouse toy or shoe laces (as you are trying to tie them!). And of
course, as any cat loves to do, she then curls up and falls asleep.
Jethro, Noodle & Buddy
one of our technicians, has quite the variety of pets! Buddy is a lab/shepherd
mix rescued from the pound 13 years ago. He likes playing football and running
around in the yard. Jet is a 14 year old Quarter Horse who has been Kat's
riding pal for 8 years. He is afraid of chipmunks and birds, but loves giving
kisses and peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. Noodle is the newest addition
to the family, and she likes to run around the house and climb into spaces
where Kat can't find her!
