Daniel Stobie, DVM, MS, DACVS: I could not do any of these things alone so when you mentioned about the team, that really makes all the difference and I think we have a wonderful team. Everybody here is really committed to doing the very best for the animals and the people attached to them. Not only do they practice great medicine, but they give great care to the pet parents that come in with them so I am super proud of our staff and all that they have been able to accomplish. Again, having a winning team and everyone working together, that's really what makes the practice grow and do well, [but] also be able to advance and do other things because no one person can do anything by themselves.
