Calabash Pet Grooming & Boarding
Kennel SupervisorKelly Parmeter
Kelly is our spectacular kennel supervisor. With a love for pets and insight into what keeps them content during their boarding stay she is working in her sweet spot. She has been in the veterinary field for 5 years now. She has been with us at VCA Seaside Animal Hospital for 2.5 of those years.
Kelly has a 6 year old beagle rescue named Emma and a 2 year old rescue cat named Artemis
When she is not with us, she can be found gardening, running, biking, reading and writing. If you see her out in the area and she doesn't respond to her name, she isn't being rude. You may have found her twin sister, not Kelly at all.
" I take pride in making sure clients pets are happy and healthy."
Kennel AssistantOlivia Hodge
Olivia is a fairly new addition to VCA Seaside Animal Hospital, being here only 2 months so far, but she is not new to the pet care industry. She worked in a kennel in Maryland for 4 years where, when we called for her reference sent a GLOWING REVIEW. They noted how sad they (and their pets) were to see her leave. We already know why..... Olivia ROCKS!
She says that she has wanted to work with animals since she was in the 5th grade and wanted to be a Zoo Keeper.
She currently works in the Doggone Healthy yard as a play maker and in the VCA Seaside Animal Hospital kennel as an assistant. She is learning the ropes quickly and has her eyes set on a Veterinary Technician position one day.

Jody is the newest member of the VCA Seaside Animal Hospital Team and works for our sister facility Doggone Healthy. She is available to groom your furry companion with excellence Monday, Wednesday, or Friday.
When she is not here, creating masterpieces, she can be found at home with her adorable black cat "Kit Kat". Weather permitting you can find her lounging on the beach watching people, catching some rays or reading.
