I also enjoy educating our clients about puppy training and behavior. I have 3 dogs, Nate a 7 year old Chihuahua, Tuffy a 2 year old Biewer Terrier, Milo a 2 year old Biewer Terrier and one cat Penelope at home so I know how important our four-legged family members can be in our lives. I love our patients and clients like family and take a lot of pride in my work. I plan on being at Dogwood Animal Hospital for years to come and hope you will come join our family and be a part of it with me and the rest of our wonderful, caring staff.

Hi, I’m Jordyn. I have worked at Dogwood Animal Hospital for two months. I do have previous experience because I also worked here as a teenager. Some of you may know me because my mom is Cristy Mcnabb our office manager. I basically grew up here at Dogwood. Since working here before I have finished school and have had two baby boys. I love taking care of the animals in the kennel. I stay busy all day. There is always a fur baby that needs to be held or played with. My favorite are our regular boarders that come almost every weekend. They become our extended family. I look forward to working here for the future so bring your pet by to see us for boarding or anything else they need.
