We welcomed Emily to Douglas Oaks in late 2013. She grew up in the rural town of Rico, Georgia, surrounded by her large family. Her passion for animal care started at a very young age, as she and her dad always had a variety of animals ranging from cats to cows. In 1999 Emily became a veterinary assistant while she attended college. The best advice Emily has taken to heart was: “Learn the most about what you love”. This advice inspired her to focus on veterinary medicine. Emily has worked in small animal practices, emergency care, orthopedics, ophthalmology, and ICU specialties. In 2011 Emily became a Nationally Registered Veterinary Technician. Emily has been married for 13 years and has 19-year-old step-son, Trenton who is musically talented.
Pet Care Tip:
Just like people, obesity adds additional health risks that include: diabetes, arthritis, and even cancer. Measure your pets’ caloric intake as you would your own.
