And furry, adorable veterinarians? Maybe some aren't so furry and adorable, but they still do good work, as any pet owner knows.

I came to Fairbanks to deliver a horse in and never left. I started my adventurous business in a pick-up truck driving from Cantwell to Circle City to Delta Junction. Amazingly enough, all the patients recovered just fine. The journey has been a challenging one. Funds were limited which meant I learned how to pound nails and lay linoleum. The downside; it was on the second floor so most of my canine patients got training in stair climbing as a perk to their veterinary visit. One of the qualities that the dogs did enjoy was the aroma of freshly made dog food that saturated the clinic from the feed store.

Nothing like a strong smell of cooked barley and salmon to start your day! From until Kobuk Feed and Fuel was not only home to my business but in home to my son and myself while I went through a divorce.

The house cats enjoyed it. In I bought the existing building on Peger Rd. When I bought the building there was one bathroom and the only septic was a gallon drum buried next to the building where the bathroom vet located. The bodybuilder was completely open so there was ample space to store heavy equipment. The back now boarding and Muttesori was a huge drive through repair shop for everything from semi-trucks to excavators. Once again I became my own general contractor. I lived in an apartment located in the clinic with my son, Jesse, and my husband, Ken, until when I was evicted so the living room could be remodeled into the new surgery suit complete with the CO2 laser.

Damn landlord, the days of short morning commute were over. My older brother, Dickie, was the one in our family that wanted to be a veterinarian! I was born in an era that most girls were preparing for a career in raising a family. I was very close to my dee I went through a life after death experience that left us both inspired by life and the magic around us. We found a new way to look at life and it always came with a sense of humor.

I wait like a tiger ready to spring from the wheat field that sat between our house and the clinic in an attempt to scare him. It never worked but we would walk home and he would tell me all about what he had seen and filled me in on the things he did that day. Unfortunately, he was awful at school.

He was a football star and an algebra nightmare. The sixties were not a good time for young men coming of age. My father, being a proud WWII marine, encourage my brother to the marines. It put him on the front line in Vietnam. I knew in my heart the day he died.

He always kept his wallet in his front shirt pocket; the bullet went through his wallet and into his heart. When I died as a little girl and my brother was near, I had a profound experience that involved him. There was something special that happened.

After he died it was something unspeakable that pulled me to the field of veterinary medicine. The fact that my father would buy me any animal including horses if I continued to pursue the career his only son had once dreamed of, was a perk!! There was the time back in when the only domesticated musk ox herd was moved to a new area that flooded in the fall and coated all the young calves with a glacier mud that dried into concrete.

When the cold weather set in the quivet musk ox hair might be the warmest substance in the world; unless it is coated in frozen mud. I placed an ad in the paper for musk ox washers and community came out in full strength. Only 8 of the 32 calves were still alive. They all survived! Then there was the time the circus came to town! I got a call on a Friday night just after the big cats were fed.

I could tell by the way the cat was acting it had its stomach flipped. The problem was explaining this to the trainer who did not speak a word of English and who insisted the cat was choking. Between a gullible veterinarian friend of mine and me we were able to get the cat to surgery.

Our prize: a 5-gallon bucket of horse meat, one leopard spleen and one very lucky, grumpy cat. It meant I turned my newly remodeled isolation ward into a moose apartment furnished with a newly purchased futon mattress we all three of us would sleep on. Nothing like the warm sensation and smell of ode to moose urine as a wake-up call! She was a joy to have for four days, and then she left in our favorite afghan, inside a wooden crate, to Washington where she was involved in a moose diet study.

I kept up with her for a couple years…. There have been so many broken legs I have fixed, so many cancer ridden spleens removed, oh and the puppies and kittens delivered via c-section over the years.

It seems like I remember the animals and more often these days the owners have passed. But …I see their kids here with their new puppies and kittens and the next generation of pet parents crawling around the exam room. I completed undergrad and vet school in 5 years. I met up with an emergency room doctor going through his residency in Lansing and decided to work a year in Lansing at the Waverly Animal Hospital while he completed his residency. I lived at the clinic and took in emergencies through the night as well as work during the day. It was a bit exhausting. I had a quarter horse stallion I was promoting at the time; so I loaded my boy up in the trailer with my Dad as a co-pilot and North to Alaska we went.

We arrived in The boyfriend hated it here and left-I stayed. I started doing a house call type practice with my pick-up truck; The Enterprise. Reindeer, goats, horses, sheep, cows, moose, beaver, groundhogs, llamas, mules, cats, dogs and multitudes of pocket pets and birds.

And practice was good until winter hit; and dark -ouch. Mineral oil does not go down a tube after very well. My hands got frostbitten a couple times and that is when I decided to find a warm place to work out of; that is when I found my destiny as a general contractor fixing up the apartment above the feed store. The Kobuk Fuel and Feed was in the industrial part of town, but it sold animal feed; a natural drawing card for any blossoming new vet clinic. In the winter the heavy equipment shop owner next door showed me how to run a loader-he let me clean out my own parking lot!! What a hoot.

Unfortunately, the clinic was on the second floor — the handicap parking position came with a car visit so I was within code for handicap accessible!

I met my first husband soon after opening up my clinic; somebody paid their bill by giving me a horse. I needed a place to keep my investment and Chuck my first husband had a ranch. Oh, I should back up — I went out to work on his horses and he was hitting on me pretty hard for a date.

I said no but he showed up at my clinic with his favorite dog in static epilepticus. I never knew what caused him to go into seizures. So, Chuck had a big bill, he had a ranch, I needed a place for my horse to stay; yes another wonderful trade-out. I was married to Chuck for 7 years and in that time we had a wonderful son, Jesse!! In that time he taught me all about hunting and the outdoors.

We went anywhere a horse could go in the wild. I learned how to call around mountainsides like Wild E Coyote, after Dall sheep — and I finally did catch one slacking!! He is mounted on my wall now. Shot a large bull moose, Boone and Crocket Caribou and a Grizzly bear that was stalking my horse and I. She is now muck-lucks.

We ate everything we killed; that was the primary reason we hunted. I learned Horse Shoe crabs are harder to catch than nailing horseshoes on a cranky horse. Halibut is like pulling a barn door off the floor of the ocean with a kite string. I like it all. I am a surgeon at heart-when in doubt; cut it out.

Veterinarian's hairy escapades on animal planet

A good orthopedic case is almost as rewarding as a GI foreign body…hard to pick which one I like better. Mmm, you guys are the editors- if you just read the above can you paraphrase all of that — I like it all but I find the business part and employees is the most challenging. What are your personal origins? Where did you grow up, who was in your family, what were your interests and influences? I was born in Ohio, the youngest of four. There were seven years between my sisters and I.
