Brandon Animal Hospital is a three-doctor practice that’s served pets and people in Roanoke, Virginia since the 1950s.

Perhaps now more than ever, when many veterinary teams are understaffed and overwhelmed, adding an extra pair of hands can be a lifesaver. However, with that new hire comes the necessity for a task that no one looks forward to: training.
It’s not uncommon for veterinary teams to think of themselves as a family.

In every veterinary team, there are individuals who shine in different areas of the practice. There’s always that one tech who can draw blood from a stone, the receptionist who can win over even the most difficult client, and the veterinarian who can sniff out a correct diagnosis like a dog with a bone. When your team is as proficient as they are in the realm of veterinary medicine, it’s easy to forget that they also have talents outside of it (and we’re not just talking karaoke skills).
