We held our party a little late this time around but it worked out really well – after a crazy December where it seemed the majority of us were sick, everyone showed up to celebrate in the best of health. Also in attendance were the young, honorary members of our team who were so busy running and running and running around the restaurant that snapping an unblurry photo of them proved very challenging! (Some doggie nail trims are easier than that – trust us!)
2017 saw a number of comings and a few goings to our team: We welcomed our wonderful new vet Dr. KaeDee (“Kay-Dee”) Shay and her 2 really cute Corgis in late Spring – they hail from Montana and are still settling into the Philadelphia area, so please feel free to share your favorites tips and places with her when you meet her!
And while we said goodbye to one of our long-time Techs, Judy (who retired to spend more time with her Cocker Spaniels), we also welcomed a number of new folks into our family, including Technicians Nora, Colleen, Janet, Liz and Melissa who are as pet crazy and goofy as the rest of us. New Client Services Reps Trish and Stephanie round out our team in addition to Angela, who came to us as a high school student observing our work and then joined us as an employee in between her college semesters! We are thrilled to have assembled such a great crew and are confident you will love working with each of them.
As our commitment towards you and your pets evolves, you can expect a few new offerings from us in 2018 including opportunities to participate in upcoming clinical trials (we are currently recruiting candidates for a chronic colitis study) along with special events and adoption events! Follow our Facebook page for details as they arise.
Most of all, we want to take a moment and express our thanks towards our clients new and old – we are truly grateful for your continued trust and faith in us: we love our work and we love caring for your 4 legged family member(s). A very happy (and belated) New Year to you, your family and loved ones!
