Hi! I'm Amy and you can always find a dachshund on my lap! My first dachshund, June Bug, was diagnosed with IVDD in 2016. We were able to regain her mobility from acupuncture after being paralyzed for over 5 months!

Hello, my name is Emily and I'm originally from New Hampshire. I went to Clark University in Worcester, MA and got my bachelor's degree in Biology. While working part time in college I started working at a veterinary hospital as a kennel attendant.
