Our Staff

  • Colby

    You can usually spot Colby curled up beside our printer, or hanging out on a chair in the waiting room. Colby loves to play with his friend, Figaro, greet people (and animals!) coming in to visit us, and cuddle anyone who wants a hug. Be careful though - he makes it his personal mission to inspect all cat carriers that come into the clinic; you may find yourself with an extra cat going home!
