Our Staff


Our Hospital Administrator

Hannah Davis

Hannah is originally from Pennsylvania. Her last name of Davis is no coincidence; she and Dr. Davis have been married since 1991 and are the proud grandparents of five grandchildren. As such, she also provides a home for a miniature dachshund nicknamed 'the miniature terrorist', and a mixed hound breed.  Two cats, three birds, one horse, one pot-bellied pig, two goats, and two aquaria (one of which is a reef tank) complete the Davis household. Hannah has a special passion for the human-animal bond. This passion extends from our hospital to work involving foster care, adoptions, and pet loss support. Her knowledge in these areas enhances our practice. Never hesitate to ask her questions!

Our Licensed Veterinary Technicians

Our LVTs are a key component to the health and care of your animals. They are qualified professionals in animal handling, diagnostics, treatments, and veterinary procedures. They work as partners with our veterinarians to ensure the utmost care for your pet.  Our skilled technical staff also provides support for dental cleanings, restorations, orthodontics, periodontics, and oral surgeries.

Further, our LVTs also serve as "receptionists," so every time a staff member picks up the phone you know you're speaking with a Licensed Veterinary Technician!
