March is Women’s History Month, a perfect time to acknowledge and celebrate not only the women who take care of the special animals in your life, but also those who have pioneered techniques that allow us to better understand and treat them. Just 30 years ago, it was rare to find a female in veterinary medicine. Now, women make up over 80% of Doctor of Veterinary (DVM) graduates and are increasingly becoming clinic owners. We think that’s a pretty special accomplishment, and are exceptionally proud of our own doctors who beautifully illustrate this progression.
