    I have been working in the veterinary field since 1980. I think this is the world's record for the longest summer job! I have to say it has been quite the experience that I will never forget.

    My name is Maryann Spring and I am the "Cat Champion" of VCA Palmer. I have always been around cats; they were in my family before I was. My first cat was a Maine Coon by the name of "Tamoka Oaks Fritz a Been", Fritz for short. I got him as my second birthday present and I was hooked from then on. Since then I have had (and still have) many cats. Some of these cats have had medical issues (diabetes, thyroid, asthma, etc...), so I completely understand the toll this may take on one. I have also had my share of "misunderstood" felines. For instance the cat in my picture (Lucky) lived with me for 3 years before I could get near him. Now he has earned the name of "Lovely Luscious Lucky Lips" because if you’re around he'll plant one on you. The vets here at VCA Palmer Animal Hospital also understand the joy (and at times heartbreak) of owning these "independent thinkers" as "we are not only VCA employees, but we are also the clients". We do everything we can to make you and your cats time here as pleasant as possible. And if you ever need to leave your furry friend we can accommodate them in our kitty boarding facility. We look forward to seeing you soon, and don't hesitate to bring your feistiest feline. After all they are just as deserving of a "special day out" as the next kitty.

    Animals have always been a major part of my life, I have been taking care of them for as long as I can remember. I have had dogs my entire life and got my first horse when I was eight years old. When I'm not working or at school I love spending time with my family, dogs, and riding my horses. I love to learn and experience new things, and being around animals all of the time gives me the best learning experience I can ask for.

    My interest in animals began while growing up on my grandfathers farm. At home I live with a couple of dogs and a very sassy cat. Since joining the team here I have learned a lot and love working with all types of animals and their owners.
