Full Circle is a small animal hospital for cats and dogs, but it welcomes other companion animals for routine care too, including birds, rabbits, ferrets and pocket pets.

What drew you to this profession?

I think I was born wanting to become a veterinarian. I told my parents when I was 3 years old that this is what I wanted to be, and I never changed my mind. I love animals, and communicating with their people to achieve better health for our fur babies is my passion.

How does your work differ from that of others in your profession?

I differ from other vets in that I am an integrative holistic veterinarian, meaning I utilize both conventional treatment options as well as numerous holistic modalities to work toward optimal health for my canine and feline patients.

What should someone expect from working with you?

My clients should expect ample communication about options and recommendations for diagnostics and treatment, as well as the respect that they know their pets better than I ever will. I am a guide in navigating the best options for how to move forward medically.

What changes do have you planned for 2023?

We have added therapeutic laser treatments for our patients looking for a noninvasive option for treating pain and inflammation without side effects. We are also excited to announce that we now offer acupuncture treatments one day a week. Our last big announcement is we hope to be adding a second veterinarian to our staff in June which will allow us to accommodate for more new clients and appointment requests.

Anything else our readers should know?

All of us here at Full Circle work hard to provide options for the best care for our patients. We believe that better communication with owners means better outcomes and more success in treating our fur babies.
