Dr. Clare Ennis, DVM, is a practicing veterinarian and the owner of Canyon View Animal Hospital, a small, locally-owned veterinary clinic serving Littleton and the Ken Caryl area. From their website:
“We take pride in knowing our clients and their pets by name. Here at Canyon View, you can always see the same veterinarian, allowing us to develop a real relationship with you and better serve your pet’s health needs. We also understand that this is a tough economy, and we will always work with you to keep your pet’s treatment plans within budget.
Canyon View Animal Hospital is a full-service veterinary facility. We are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership, preventative health care and health-related educational opportunities for our clients.”
I was introduced to Dr. Ennis through my good buddy CJ Latham, who you remember from Ep. 178 of the show, and I’ve always wanted to talk to a veterinarian. If you like animals (and who doesn’t?), it seems like an extremely appealing job. You get to play with puppies and kitties all day, right?
Not quite. Dr. Ennis gives me incredible insight on this show about her incredible debt coming out of vet school, what it’s like owning your own practice, and the realities of her day-to-day. Some days that means wellness exams. Some days that’s surgery. And some days, that involves euthanasia. We talk about that process, why Dr. Ennis views it as a gift, and how she handles the grief of her clients.
