On behalf of our big Mount Pleasant family, we wish Concordia and all vet techs and nurses around the world – HAPPY NATIONAL VET TECH WEEK. Thank you for all your hard work, strong stomachs and big loving hearts!
“I joined Mount Pleasant on the day we opened Mount Pleasant Animal Hospital at Whitley – 12 May 1985.”
“Being with animals has always been a part of my life. Back home, we had dogs and cats. I helped to clean the small house of our chickens and feed them before school. Fattening the pigs in our backyard, 5 goats and cattle reared by another farmer.
I enjoyed watching them grow. When they were sold as food animals, I sometimes became reactive and emotional.”

“My parents inspire me. They are not degree holders but the values they instill in us – especially on the importance of education – I will remember forever.”
“It is very rewarding when ultrasound examinations provide important diagnostic information for our vets to prescribe the best treatment quickly.”
“I am happy when pets get well & families are relieved. It is frustrating when we have done our best but the outcome is not good.”
“I am a simple person, not very sociable but sincere with others. I put my heart & mind in whatever I do.”
