  • Dr.
    Margaret Wright
    Veterinarian

    I attribute my love and respect of animals to growing up on a family-run dairy farm which was run solely by my parents and 4 brothers. I was totally inspired in choosing a career in veterinary medicine after watching our large animal veterinarian come out to the farm to provide not only medical treatments, but also preventative herd health care. I knew that one day I wanted to help provide medical care for ill pets that are depending on us to bring them to better health.

    Alicyn Cross
    Veterinarian​

    I was driven to become a veterinarian out of my own need for my exotic pets. Throughout my education, I have had the opportunity to work at several zoos and with many exotic specialists in order to develop a basis with which to treat the strange and unusual pets out there. I hope to one day pursue specialization in exotic pets.

  • Marie
    Office Manager/Veterinary Assistant

    I absolutely love working here! Part vet assistant and part office manager, I come to work each day ready to help you with your pet's health from your first, exciting puppy visit, the many years you will have together until that last final good-bye. I enjoy road biking, hiking and - of course - animals! My pets include 3 doggies (Jaxon, Tinkerbell and Benji) and 1 feisty kitty (Munchie). The dog in the photo is Lucy, she was with Seventy First as a blood doner dog for many years and is the face of our Lucy Fund because she helped so many doggies in need.
