My new staff and I are proud to be able to continue that long lived legacy as of August 5th, 2013.

Michelle

This is Michelle. Michelle is 29 and has been working her way through the field of helping animals a lot of her life. Starting from your  basic pet store dog food rep to being  an assistant manager to the medical director of the shelter Border tails rescue. This is where she saw how much a difference a pet can make to a family.  She  has 3 rescued furry family members herself.  Leela, Jinger and Kira. She now found her way as a veterinarian technician where she can continue the knowledge to herself and others of the health and wellness of our furry family members. She truly loves helping those who don’t have a voice, but a bark or meow.

Aydee

Meet Aydee, a new veterinary technician assistant to Prospect Animal Hospital. She is a vet tech student who only has a year left of school. Yay! She has worked with all types of animals. She has worked with pigs, cows, sheeps, horses, chickens, rodents, rabbits, cats, and dogs. However, she will always have a sweet spot for dogs and cats. Outside of work and school Aydee likes to go for runs, rock climb, and go on walks with her ten year old miniature poodle, Kendra. She is grateful to have the opportunity to share what she has learned in school to a practice such as this one. Walking into work and seeing all the cute furry faces really brightens her day, so come on in and bring your fur baby. They would be in caring loving hands with the staff of Prospect Animal Hospital.

Kristine

Kristina is a proud Cyclone, graduating from Iowa State University in 2015 with her BS in Animal Science and pre-veterinary medicine. She is currently enrolled in Penn Foster's Veterinary Technician program. It’s no surprise that she ended up working with animals since she can never remember wanting to do anything else! Even her parents were surprised when as a child she consistently told people she wanted to be a veterinarian when she grew up. Since then, she has worked with animals at shelters, pet stores, and veterinarian offices. Kristina lives in Wheeling with her son, two cats (Zanna and Zookie), dog (Camille), and guinea pigs (Rufus and Simon). Kristina loves to read fantasy novels and spend time outdoors.

"If you are looking for a vet you can stop now because Dr. Dodin and her team are THE best! For example, she will tell you to email her at ANY time...one time I emailed her on a Sunday a question about my puppy and she responded that same day!
