Canine & Feline Dirofilariasis: Prophylaxis, Treatment, & Complications of Treatment Compendium, Continuing Education for Veterinarians, March 2008.

Autumn and Macie (Wowzers: Schnauzer/Westie cross). I adopted ‘double and trouble” when they were only 9 weeks old. Their previous owner had purchased them to be companions for their older dog, but the older dog despised them, so was looking for a new home for them. Initially I was only going to keep one, but after one night, I could not part with either one of them. Olive a Golden Retriever that I picked up from a small farm in Pennsylvania. She is the perfect addition to balance out my pack. Max, I adopted from Fairfax County Animal Shelter a Schnauzer/Maltese mix (“premium blend”), He is small but mighty and fills our home with entertainment.

Personal Facts:
I grew up in a small town in Kansas. My grandparents owned/operated a dairy farm, where I spend a lot of time in the summer. I knew that I wanted to be a Veterinarian since I was very young. I feel fortunate to have the best job in the world.
