Jessica

Practice Manager
I grew up in a tiny town in southern Saskatchewan where I fell in love with animals at a very young age on our cattle and grain farm. I have been involved in the Veterinary world since I was 12 years old and have always known it is where I am supposed to be. It started with being involved in 4-H, then volunteering at a local veterinary hospital where I was eventually hired, and then going to school for the Veterinary Assistant and Veterinary Technician programs. When I am not at the animal hospital, I am chauffeuring around my two beautiful teenage daughters to all their sports with my wonderful husband. I joined the Talbot Animal Hospital in the spring of 2018 and became the Practice Manager in the fall of 2021. I enjoy all aspects of vet med from identifying ticks to observing surgeries and helping our wonderful clients, and most of all, cuddling all those cute puppies and kittens that come to visit us! The thing I love the most is that my day is always different and you never know what is going to come through those doors next! I also love working with people who are just as passionate about caring for animals. I had many many cats growing up on the farm, as well as cattle, sheep, horses, ducks, chickens, turkeys and rabbits. However, my first official "pet" was a budgie named Herbert! I currently have 4 cats - Max, who is 13 years old, two 2.5-year-old littermates, Cookie and Pepper, and a 7-month-old wild child, Moo. The youngest 3 were all adopted from Animal Aide. I also have Jake, my 2-year-old Rottie, Shepherd, Lab X.

Exactly why is Vet food so much more money? And why would I spend that when I can get the same food at the grocery store? Am I getting ripped off?! At $60+ a bag, yes, you would think that you might be getting taken to the cleaners on dog or cat food. Let me de-mystify the cost versus quality question.
