The technicians at Bailey Veterinary Clinic are here to help you and your pet during your visit to the clinic. Some of their duties include assisting the doctor by inviting you and your pet into the exam room, taking general information and getting a current weight and temperature.
They will be the ones assisting the doctors in the hospital by administering the medications, taking radiographs, performing any laboratory work needed and any other care requested by your veterinarian as well as giving general comfort to your pet during their stay with us.
The surgery doctor will have a technician assisting them during surgery by administering and monitoring anesthesia during procedures and keeping you informed of your pets surgical recovery.
Our goal is to provide you and your pet with a professional and comfortable visit while you are with us.
RENEE started as a kennel crew member in 1998 before leaving to go to school to become a veterinary technician, and returned to Baileys in 2001.She shares her home with 2 adorable felines, Tinkerbel & Nyx and two cute Corgi's . With her mothering instincts, it makes sense that Renee will often foster abandoned kittens whenever the need arises.
Outside of work, you can often find her at any event pertaining to sports. Her favorite sports include women’s slow pitch softball, basketball and football.
Renee grew up around animals and always knew that whatever job she had would be centered around them. She “really appreciates” her work family and has plans to stay in the veterinary field indefinitely.
SARA’s ridiculous love for animals stems from childhood and eventually brought her to Baileys back in 2005. She enjoys all aspects of the clinic but she is especially fond of blood work (lab). With her positive attitude and unceasing smile, it’s not surprising that Sara helps to brighten everyone’s day. She has 3 precious pooches (Oliver, Emma and Baxter), a trio of spoiled felines (Miles, Wuffy and Toodles) and a menagerie of chickens who’s names are as follows: Priya, Amy, Penny, Peepers, Nugget, Lego, Lizzie, Chickie and last, but not least, Bernadette.
Her spare time is spent reading, playing sports, hiking, spending time with her family and a number of varied pursuits which include helping make the Bailey’s Red Cross Blood drive possible and participating in the Relay for Life several times over the years.
