Pet Age: Veterinarian Turns Injury into Pet Care Industry Tool

Working with animals has been a fulfilling career choice for me. As a veterinarian, I’m able to provide care and compassion to my patients while maintaining and improving their quality of life. After completing four years of veterinary school, I started working at an emergency practice in Pennsylvania. The cases that I saw varied from routine wellness exams to hit-by-cars as well as toxin ingestion, so each day was unlike the one prior.

What I realized early on during my veterinary career was that, at times, we need personal protection. Animal caregivers—whether veterinarians, groomers, wildlife rehabbers, pet owners, shelter workers, zoo employees or animal control—are at a higher risk of injury from bites and scratches. Historically, in practice, we had bulky welding gloves available to us when we needed protection.
