“Understanding, thorough, caring”

I have always loved animals. I do not have a favorite pet. I actually found the love of animals from bringing in strays as a child and going through various training for Veterinary Ass/Tech positions. I really can't wait to provide an essential need for your pet. I have my own critters so I understand how important their care is to an owner/ pet parent.
