PEGGIE

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.
