With keen interest in clinical communication, animal behavior, and preventive medicine and dentistry, Lance is pleased to work at a practice that excels at these pursuits.

Avi, or Avimark, came to us as a tiny kitten in mid-2019. She was found by a good samaritan in a bag on the side of the highway (certainly no place for a kitten!) After a bath and a few hot meals, she has become a most excellent hospital cat. When you come in for a visit, you may have the pleasure of seeing her on the reception desk or hanging out with the team on the treatment floor. Avi enjoys catnip, warm beds, attention, and making cat noises that we can only guess at their meaning.
