Licensed Veterinary Technician
“I am an advocate for each animal who can not speak for themselves. I have always rooted for the underdog, my husband calls it my soft spot for the “weak and oppressed”. I want to make sure every animal is loved, well cared for and comfortable.” – Mary Fix-Hofilea
How: By Client education, working with patients to keep them healthy, solving problems with clients and helping build that bond and making sure the family life is the best it can be.
What: I work in a practice with great medicine to ensure a healthy or comfortable pet. The practice allows for plenty of time for client discussions and education via phone, email or appointments. It allows for time spent with each patient to make sure they are getting the best possible care they can.
