Jenny-Kennel Assistant-I’ve been working at Dent Animal Hospital since October 2013.  I love animals and have a cat named Kevin (who is a girl).  I’ve been taking my animals to Dr. Dent for a long time.  My hobbies include cars, trucks (which I love) and anything to do with motor sports.  I come from a family with a music background.
Tanya-Kennel Assistant-I have had a passion for animals and a connection with animals all my life.  I started working with animals at the age of 12.  I joined a local 4-H group and raised and showed goats, rabbits and chickens.  I have worked with groomers, dog trainers, pet store owners and exotic pet caregivers and I have learned a great deal of knowledge from all of them.  In 2012, I got accepted into a R.O.P. veterinary careers program, received straight A’s and studied hard and graduated in 2013.  I now work at Dent Animal Hospital and I love my job and the people I work with and of course all the animals and people I get to meet.  I am excited to get to experience and learn while I am working towards my goal of being a vet tech.
