Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life. ~James Cromwell
Welcome to our new blog site! We are excited to announce that we will be starting a blog of life at the clinic, narrated by me Sequoia! (The beautiful, glamorous Belgian Malinois in the picture below). Giving you lots of exciting, fun, informative information about your pets!
I wanted to start off by introducing each of the human staff members: Owner of the clinic (and me!) and head doctor is my mom, Dr. Kirsten Doub.Dr. Doub is originally from Baltimore, Maryland. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia in 2002 and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. Dr. Doub has an extensive skill set including surgery, dentistry, and preventative medicine. She is head of The Paw Project Utah and shares her home with me and my many cat siblings. Dr. Doub enjoys working with rescue groups and she frequently opens her home to a myriad of foster dogs and cats. In her free time, Dr. Doub is an avid resort and backcountry skier, kayaker, and backpacker.
Next up we have our head tech Megan Hyde. (Who is often the one poking and prodding me).
Megan received her associates degree in Animal Science from the Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Science in Denver, CO. Megan has been a Certified Veterinary Technician since 2004 and has over 10 years of technical experience at AAHA hospitals. Megan recently went back to school for Dental Assisting to further her knowledge in oral health and periodontal treatments. She has wanted to work with animals since she was a little girl. Every day that she helps other people’s pets is a pure delight for her! Megan spends her free time with her son London, and her 2 cats, Samuel and Kitty.
Bridget Williams is a tech and my second mom who takes care of me when my mom is off adventuring.
Bridget has been studying in the veterinary field since 2009. She has loved animals, and wanted to work in the veterinary field since she was a child. In pursuit of this dream, Bridget recently graduated from Utah State University with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Dairy and Veterinary Science with an emphasis in Bio-Veterinary Science and a minor in Chemistry. When not working or studying, Bridget loves to cook, read, ice skate, play volleyball and hang out with her family, including her two cats Sam and Greycee.
Our last tech is Heather Cannon, who is our newest family member.
After spending several years working at Walt Disney World, Heather decided to pursue a degree in Veterinary Technology from St. Petersburg College. She graduated in May 2014 and became a certified veterinary technician that July after taking the VTNE. When not working, Heather loves to be outdoors, study continuing education, cook, and cuddle her two cats Capone and Keller.
Our receptionist is Misha Busch. Answer-er of phones and treat giver.
Misha received her Associates degree in Anthropology at Salt Lake Community College, and is now attending the University of Utah pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Environmental Science. In her free time Misha enjoys playing soccer, hiking, backpacking, camping, skiing, and going on adventures with her family dogs Toodles, Dunny and Azlyn.
That’s our small little family! Stay tuned till next week!
