"I want to tell you about someone who taught me a lot about what I value. He taught me caring. He was kind and gentle. He was always loyal. He totally trusted others and me. He was a friend to everyone he met. He had a playful and adventuresome spirit. He grew up with my kids and he never hurt anyone or anything. He was my best friend for 12 years. He was my first dog after Veterinary School and his name was Roscoe.

Roscoe taught me more about the feeling people have for their pets then any book or seminar. He was there every day for me, and I was there for him. I want to be there for the people and their pets that I have the privilege to care for, because I know how valuable their relationship with their pet is. The motto of our practice is “It’s all about caring,” and I want to be known for caring."
