 Miss Winks 

You will see this adorable face at the Carlyle location. Miss Winks enjoys spending her days sleeping by the window in the exam room on her fluffy pillow. When she gets the opportunity to explore outside she likes chasing grasshoppers and "hunting" the gophers that live under the isolation ward.  

 Sprinkles

Sprinkles is a relatively new addition to our support staff, working out of our Kipling location, since January 2017. Her primary role in our clinic is head greeter.   She likes to take her daily nap on the desk, occasionally venturing outside, only to realize she actually hates the outdoors, after about 5 minutes of it.  She gets along well with most animals that come in to our clinic.  Her friendly and loving nature, are great assets to our clients and staff in Kipling!

Sasha

Sasha is the newest clinic greeter at our Redvers location. You can usually find her curled up on a waiting room chair or hunting mice in the tall grass around the clinic. Her "lion cut" makes her very unique and keeps her long hair clean, fresh and easy to maintain.
