Gunner is Dr. Dana’s Vizsla. He loves coming to the office to help meet and greet patients- especially the kids! He is super friendly and loves treats (which we keep at the front desk for anyone who would like to give him one!) You’ll find him snuggling up in his bed in Dr. Dana’s office or holding one of his favorite toy for you when you come in!


Our newest addition to the practice is Dr. Dana’s daughter, Mia! She was born in July 2019 and comes to the office every day along with Dr. Dana. If she isn’t downstairs napping, you’ll usually find her hanging out in the reception area happily greeting patients, too!
