** Newest Announcement! ** We have big changes to tell you about! We have new staff members! A couple long time staff members such as Receptionist, Angela and Office Manager, Heidi have recently moved out of state. Angela and her husband moved to Colorado in late February, 2006. Heidi moved to Oregon in late April, 2006. Angela sadly departed the AHOT after 5 years and Heidi had to make the difficult decision to leave her work family after over 11 years. Both are still in touch with the AHOT and miss life here and all of their wonderful clients, patients, and friends. However, as of mid 2008, Heidi and her family recently moved back to Tampa! (She had a baby girl in Sept. '07 and is home with her for now.) But, she still remains webmaster of the website and continues to welcome email inquiries, general questions and new photo submissions to add the Brag Book of your wonderful pets!
Soon, our newest staff members' profiles will be added to our website so you can get to know them online as well as in person at our clinic!
