How do you keep your cool in stressful situations?

Mandy Finnell
It always helps to put yourself in the client's shoes and understand that they have other things to deal with.

What's the most unusual pet you've ever owned?

I had two albino lab rats that I took home from tech school.

What's the most unusual pet someone has brought to your practice?

We've seen a couple of sugar gliders. They're very different.

If you could only own one pet, what would it be?

An American pit bull terrier.

What's the wackiest question a client has ever asked you?

I had a client ask if a therapeutic dental diet came in a canned formula. I explained that the point of this hard food was to remove plaque!
