Hendrik was born to work with animals. With more than 12 years of pet care experience, Hendrik has a great eye for our patients’ well-being – making sure all are comfortable and alerting the doctor if anything is amiss. No matter the day, he always brings a smile and a friendly atmosphere to our clinic.
My name is Lily and I’m the clinic cat. I can usually be found sleeping in my favorite bed on the counter, or laying on files my staff are trying to write in, or begging for my meals. The feline stomach can’t tell time! All in all I have a good life, but prefer to act the long suffering forgotten mascot in hopes of getting an extra meal. It works amazingly well for me!
