Dr. Dixie, the current boss of our clinic, came to us from a loving home that, due to unforeseen circumstances, had to give her up. She won our staff over with her calm demeanor and caring nature to both feline and canine patients.
Dixie is a young Siberian and aside from her role as clinic ambassador, Dixie loves sitting in boxes, chasing toys and eating food she shouldn't. Please come in to say hello to her!
