1. What made you want to go into veterinary medicine?

My parents moved to the country when I was 7 so I could have a horse. We ended up with 5 horses, 2 goats, a pig and 5 dogs. I loved animals and my parents were great about me having them. They really instilled in me the idea that we have responsibility to take care of the animals with whom we spend our lives.

2. Tell us one of your most inspiring stories working with animals.

I practice small animal medicine now, but I owned an equine exclusive practice for 15 years. The thing that still amazes me is birth. You have this 1200 pound animal that has only has 20 minutes to give birth and it is usually a smooth process! And within an hour the foal is actually standing on its own and nursing. It is an incredible thing to witness.

3.What is your MBA focusing on?

My MBA is focusing on entrepreneurship. Peninsula Veterinary Services is actually my 3rd business since I graduated from vet school.

My website is www.peninsulaveterinaryservices.com

PENINSULA VETERINARY SERVICES IS FIRST PRACTICE IN DELAWARE TO OFFER ANIMAL HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE THROUGH IAAHPC

Millsboro Delaware (April 17, 2017) –Peninsula Veterinary Services LLC is now offering animal hospice and palliative care services for pets with life limiting or incurable diseases and their families.

Animal hospice and palliative care provide comfort to companion animals as they approach the end of life. Services may include hospice treatment, pain/anxiety management, holistic healing and in-home euthanasia. The concept initially gained significant traction within the pet industry and veterinary medical field. Now, pet owners are embracing it.

Many pet parents choose hospice care in order to participate in decision making about their pet's needs, have the time to say goodbye to their companions and to plan for their death.

“People all over the world are interested in how they can provide meaningful end-of-life care to their pets”, said Dr. April Reid, owner of Peninsula Veterinary Services. “We are happy to be at the forefront of this innovative, yet much-needed practice.”
