Last week we highlighted Dr. Witt, this week it is Dr. Deckert's turn! We asked her what she loves about her career as a veterinarian at our Chillicothe location. Here was her response:
"Pets are an important part of our lives, both mentally and physically. Pets provide unconditional love (yes, even cats) to make the bad days better and the good days great. As a vet, I enjoy watching these relationships develop and mature, re-living some of the crazy things our pets do. Physically, they force us to be active, even if it is to get up and feed them or take them for a walk. My job, as a veterinarian, is to make sure these relationships can continue for as long as we have our furred friends. Another part of this career is public health. There is significant overlap between veterinary and human medicine, and this can only benefit our patients as well as learning more about our species. We learn something new almost every day, even after 20+ years of practice."
Like to thank Dr. Deckert for nurturing the relationship between parent and fur child!!!

Why does Dr. Witt love being your veterinarian?

Her response:

"My favorite thing about being a vet is witnessing first hand the human and animal emotional bond between owners and their pets. The love between the two is amazing and beautiful, and when we are able to keep that going it fills me with joy."

Like/Share to thank Dr. Witt for allowing that bond between owner and pet to flourish at our Dunlap location.

Halloween may be over, but voting for the 2017 Pet Costume Contest continues until November 7! We wanted to take a moment to talk about the fund that the proceeds from this contest benefit. Since 2010, our HALO (Helping Animals Live On) Fund has come to the rescue for over 250 pets in our area. HALO has allowed us to perform life saving surgeries that otherwise would not have been monetarily possible for our clients. The fund is replenished by events like our costume contest, donations from our clients, as well as donations we make on behalf of pets that have passed away. Help us continue saving lives by stopping in and voting at our Dunlap, Chillicothe, or Peoria location for your favorite costume! 1 penny equals 1 vote, and the pet with the most donations will receive 2 PAVG Loyalty Coins and a spooky gift basket! Please like and share to spread the word.

We are receiving more and more calls, and clients walking in struggling with flea infestations. Check out this post from last year. Being proactive instead of reactive with these pests is undoubtedly the way to go. Year round prevention is the best way to ensure your pet doesn't bring invaders into your home. As temperatures drop, never assume it is okay to discontinue monthly preventatives! Contact us for our year round specials/rebates on quality preventative options available to your fur friends!
