Our Staff

Peggie  </br> Office Manager photo

Office Manager

My dream job started in 1984, when Dr. Rutman offered me a kennel position here at Eastside Dog and Cat Hospital. Now my primary position is office manager. However, I have worn many hats over the years and I can be found in just about any area of the clinic that needs my help. I have seen many changes in Veterinary Medicine with continued advancements being made that will help improve veterinary care for our devoted pets. Every dog and cat that has shared my home with me has provided a lesson whether it is medically or in the field of animal behavior. Subsequently I continue to grow and learn in these evolving fields. I currently share my home with a dutiful girl Boxer I fondly call Jesse pictured above. This has been the best job, I cannot really call it a job, working alongside my dedicated co-workers and friends here at Eastside Dog and Cat Hospital. Thank you for stopping by our website and I am certain that everyone here will treat your loving pet as if it were their own.

Registered Veterinary Technician

I graduated cum laude from Columbus State Community College in 2008 with a degree in veterinary technology. I am currently attending Oregon State University pursuing my bachelor’s degree in zoology. My dream job is to break into exotic zoo medicine, but until then I enjoy helping and caring for our furry four-footed companions. Since 2006 I have worked in veterinary medicine in the local area, as well as in Columbus. I currently have 3 cats Jojo, Merrick and Amelia and one “chiweenie” dog Kobe. I enjoy spending time outdoors and traveling when the weather is nice. I am also a proud movie/tv geek and enjoy going to Comic Con’s Fan events for a chance to meet the stars!

I started working in the veterinary field in 2000. In 2002 I graduated from Cuyahoga Community College Veterinary Technician program. I love all aspects of Veterinary Medicine but I especially like to connect with patients and their families.

In my time away from work I enjoy spending time outside with my husband and my son and all of our family. We have 4 dogs, 3 cats, and 2 horses that keep us very busy. I also enjoy riding horses and any outside sporting events.

Hello! I’ve been a part of this wonderful team for only half a year and I never want to leave! Not only is the team here amazing, but the clients make it all that much better. I have been a vet tech assistant for several years now. I have a bachelor’s degree in integrative healthcare but decided to follow my heart and focus on helping animals. I have 2 wonderful kitty cats, Brudder and Booty, and 3 dogs, Bear Lewis, Mya, and Phoebe. I spend all my spare time with them and my family and I love to be outdoors.

"Cooper" One of my Dogs!

I'm Barb Davidson and I came to Eastside Dog and Cat Hospital in 2001. Over the past 20 + years I've worked at a couple of other clinics and have found my home here. I manage the front office desk along with Nancy and Susan. We will most likely be the first people you will meet here at Eastside Dog and Cat Hospital and pride ourselves on welcoming you to our office. Our goal is to do whatever we can to provide you and your pet with caring service. When I am not with my Eastside family I share my life with my family and my dog Cooper.
