Anthony has been chosen this month by his peers! Way to go!
Anthony has been working at Westbury Animal Hospital for almost 6 months as a Veterinary Assistant. He was rewarded for being helpful and kind to clients.
His empathy and compassion for pets and their owners has been proven true this month as Anthony has taken it upon himself to go outside and pick a flower to place on several patients caskets before being taken home. This is a great example of what makes a top dawg. Someone who acts above their daily duties to make Westbury great without any care for themselves.
Thank you Anthony for going above and beyond!
Sade has been chosen this month by her peers with 5 nominations! Way to go!
Sade has been working at Westbury Animal Hospital for almost a year as a Client Service Representative. We appreciate her hard work ethic, her team spirit, and good attitude when working with team members as well as with clients.
We have been short staffed recently and Sade has received several shout outs for all her support. Sade along with the rest of the CSR team have a very vital role at Westbury as they are essentially the “face” of the business and we cannot express how much we appreciate when they go above and beyond.
Stephanie has been working as a technician assistant for almost a year at Westbury. She has been nominated several times this month as a hard at work team player that often goes unnoticed due to her quiet polite attitude and busy bee work ethic. We are so appreciative of how much she does for the hospital and don’t want her hard work to go unnoticed any longer!
Stephanie been a big help to the technicians wrapping surgical packs, keeping equipment sterilized, cleaning and often working a lot with medical boarders, among so many other things.
One nomination also sums up Stephanie’s wonderful work ethic:
“Thank you for always taking great care of every patient you interact with. It really makes patients less fearful and more comfortable in the hospital when we take time to show them affection and not just interact with them when we are poking them or taking a temp. Your attention to detail around the hospital doesn't go unnoticed. Keep up the great work!”
Thank you Stephanie! Keep up the good work!
This is a feature article written by Dr. Cooper's daughter to give us some insight into a trip to the vet. Thanks Anna Kate for writing such a wonderful blog!
MMMMMMMMMM. That was a yummy dinner! Oh! Sorry, I forgot to introduce myself. Hi, I’m Annie. I live in Houston, Texas, and I don’t mean to brag, but I might have been on the cover of dog monthly last month. That’s right. My fans just can’t get enough of me! I mean, I don’t blame them but the star life is just so tiring! Look, Steven Schnauzerberg, I appreciate the offer, but Pug Cruz and I just don’t get along! So anyways, I’ve been in movies, photoshoots, TV shows, but I’ve never gotten….uh…..what’s the word….that’s it… Nervous!!! I’ve never gotten nervous. But I got this awful feeling when my mom told me we’re going to the worst place a dog could ever dream of going…the Vet. I have never had this feeling before, but I’m so nervous I couldn’t even finish my doggy ice cream! “Annie, where are you? Time for bed”. Uh oh. Mommy’s calling me. Well, see you tomorrow.
THE NEXT MORNING
“Good morning Annie! Want to go on a little drive?” My mom said waking me up from my dream about chocolate. Wait a second… I know what she’s doing! We’re going to the vet aren’t we? No way I’m going! “I’ll give you a treat…” GOTTA GO! As we’re in the car, getting closer and closer to the vet, my paws start to sweat more and more. When we arrive, a nice lady walks me and my mom into an exam room. When the vet comes in, he looks in my eyes and ears, looks in my mouth and checks my pretty teeth, he listen to my heart and feels my tummy, he feels all my legs and paws and asks me to lay on my back so he can look at my tummy. (Which, I’m not going to lie, it felt pretty good). Then he watched me walk. When the nice lady walks me and my mom back out to the front of the vet’s office, she gives me a treat! No way! I love this place!
On the way home, I started thinking, maybe the vet isn’t so scary after all! I got a treat, a tummy rub, and tons of people told me how cute I was (which I already knew, but it’s always refreshing to hear). Next time I go to the vet I won’t be scared at all! In fact, I’ll be super excited! Ugh, sorry, got to go. Steven’s calling again.

Congratulations to Jeffrey K!
Jeffrey is November’s Top Dawg Winner!
Jeffrey has been working hard as an Animal Care Taker at Westbury Animal Hospital for 14 months.
Jeffrey topped the scales this month with over 10nominations for the Top Dawg Award. He was nominated for saving the life of a boarder. Jeffrey brought the cat to the attention of the veterinarian on staff for noticing the pet was using the litterbox frequently. Upon closer inspection, Jeffrey noticed that this cat had not urinated in a long time and was actually straining to try to urinate in his litter box. This cat ended up having a urethral obstruction, an often fatal problem if left for too long.
Jeffrey was also nominated prior to this life saving rescue for his attention to detail, compassion, and hard work. Thank you for going above and beyond Jeffrey!
