Dr. Eddleman's love of animals all started at the age of 10 when he was greeted by a brown eyed, tail wagging, tongue flapping tri colored beagle puppy named 'Shorty'. They became instant friends and would spend hours playing in the backyard or snuggling on the couch together. From that point on, his love and facination for animals grew and continues to grow to this day. The loss of Shorty was difficult but through the years he has had the wonderful opportunity to experience the full circle of life for many pets both professionally and personally.
Dr. Busick grew up in Miami, Florida where her and her brother would always take in animals that came into the backyard. Anoles, iguanas and turtles to name a few, all found a safe spot to rest and some tasty greens before they moved on to other habitats. That interest and desire to care for the animals around her encouraged her to become a veterinarian so she could continue to do so on a larger scale.
Dr. MacQueen fell in love with animals at a very young age. No matter where she went if there was a dog, cat, or horse she would find herself gravitating towards them. As soon as her mother would allow her to start riding horses she was out at the barn learning how to take care of animals 10x her size and even volunteering additional hours of cleaning the barn so that she could get extra riding lessons! No matter how cold or hot it was, or if it was raining or snowing, you would find her out with the horses. As she grew older and started searching for her true calling she saw no better career choice than becoming a veterinarian. Her skills and interest in science mixed with her love for animals made it clear to her that any other option would leave something missing in her life.
