Meet Addie, one of our assistants here at the clinic! She is currently nearing the end of her undergrad pre-vet schooling, and plans to one day be an avian/exotic veterinarian. Outside of the clinic, Addie is still surrounded by animals, including her beloved ‘tiels, her family of cats, and her numerous underwater creatures! There is no animal that she will decline to help; too many pets? Never heard of it. She looks forward to opening her arms to your furry friends too!
