Leadership

Kate

Practice Manager
Kate's Bio
I have been working with animals since 2008 and cannot imagine doing anything else in life. After working various positions in shelter care, including management for 10 years, I made the transition to veterinary medicine. I started in Reception then moved to Veterinary assistant and now I am the practice manager, my career in veterinary medicine has grown immensely since the transition in 2019. I work with such a fantastic group of veterinarians, support staff and furry patients, it is hard not to love this job.

Shadow

Clinic Cat, AKA Humane Resources

Shadow's Bio

I used to rule the streets of Blaine before I got an injury to my eye, it really hurt. I found this lady that always came home smelling like all of the animals, she brought me to this hospital where they took my painful eye out so I could feel better. Now I am the boss and I rule this hospital with an iron paw. They feed me, take care of me and even give me medicine to make me feel better, I am the luckiest kitty around!
