    Brandy Dove

    Brandy came to VCA Commonwealth Animal Hospital in June of 2013 after graduating from Westfield High School.  While still in search for a career she decided to work with animals since it has always been a love of hers.  Since being at Commonwealth she has learned more about what it means to have animals and how much care they really deserve.  She brings a gentle touch to make sure the patients' stay is a nice, calm, and caring atmosphere.  She really enjoys the close relationships she has developed while here and wants to learn more about the veterinary field.  Her interests include reading, drawing, movies, and computer graphics and design.  At home, Brandy and her family have a Calico cat named Boo and a tiny Pomeranian/ Shih-Tzu/ Poodle mix named Peanut.  She has also developed a close relationship with a very shy kitty, she named Squeakers, who she has recently rescued while being here at Commonwealth.

    "I've always loved animals... big or small... I really want to learn more about the veterinary field as it seems so interesting and challenging.  There is always something new happening each day!  I love learning and caring for the different personalities each animal has."
