Dr. Stanley Hastings

Dr. Stanley Hastings

Owner / Veterinarian

Why did you become a veterinarian?
“From when I was 10 years old, I wanted to take care of animals. The only other career I ever considered was a ‘charter boat captain.’ I guess it was more of a calling than a choice.”

What is your goal with every patient visit?
“My goal is to do everything I can to keep pets and their owners together as long as possible and to keep their tails wagging!”

Who makes up your family?
“I live with my wife, our golden retriever, Beamer, and our horse, Donut. We have two children and three grandchildren, two of which are local and one who lives in Montana. My second job is to spend as much time with my grandchildren and teaching them about being at home in the outdoors.”

Do you have a mantra or philosophy that you live by?
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”

Dr. Andrew Pfaehler

Dr. Andrew Pfaehler

Veterinarian

Why did you become a veterinarian?
“I have always been passionate about animals, but decided on veterinary medicine later than most. I took a class in college shadowing a veterinarian and fell in love. I enjoy the incredible variety of patients and not being limited on the types of medicine and surgery that I have the privilege to perform.”

What is your goal for every patient?
“Provide a minimally stressful visit for each patient so that I may help to prevent, manage, and treat any and all disease processes.”

Who makes up your family?
“My family consists of my wife (Michela), two children (Reed and Hannah), two dogs (Ellie Mae and Charlotte), three cats (Zoe, Dexter and Wocket) and three fish (Fred, Mario and Vinz).”

Do you have a mantra or philosophy that you live by?
“Treat every person and animal as if it were your own family member.”

Dr. Ashley DeWees

Dr. Ashley DeWees

Veterinarian

Why did you become a veterinarian?
“I always knew that I wanted to work with animals (since the age of 6). What I didn’t realize until much later in life was how wonderful it would be to work with the people attached to those animals. The human-animal bond is a beautiful thing. I consider myself incredibly lucky to be a part of that.”

What is your goal with every patient visit?
“For every animal to feel better walking out than they did when they walked in, and for every owner to feel like they are getting the best possible care for their family member.”

Who makes up your family?
“My husband, Tom, my two sons, William and Harrison, and our two cats, Herbert and Moxie.”

Dr. Bette J. Vecchione

Dr. Bette J. Vecchione

Veterinarian

Why did you become a veterinarian?
“I became a veterinarian because it was the perfect opportunity to learn how to use science to positively influence the lives of both animals and humans.”

What is your goal with every patient visit?
“Every patient is a member of the family. As such, my goal is to provide them with the best possible care to promote health, well being and improve their daily lives.”

Who makes up your family?
“My family includes my husband, Scott, two daughters, Zoey and Tatum, along with a very rambunctious boxer and two mischievous cats.”

Dr. Lee Nancarrow

Dr. Lee Nancarrow

Veterinarian

Why did you become a veterinarian?
“Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated that living things are alive. Understanding how they work, how each organ system functions and connects to the others forming a whole individual organism is mind blowing. The fascination of biology and my love of animals is why I became a veterinarian.”

What is your goal with every patient visit?
“Through the years of practice, my interests have expanded. I still enjoy internal medicine and endocrinology, but I have come to wonder why do the same chronic diseases keep reoccurring and can they be prevented prior to emerging. These thoughts along with my own personal health challenges have brought me to my new passion for nutrition and epigenetics. Hippocrates said, ‘Let food by thy medicine and medicine be thy food.’ I have received a certification in pet nutrition and plan to enroll in additional courses. At the end of the day, I love to watch the reunion of a hospitalized pet and their family and of course going home to mine.”

Who makes up your family?
“Currently I live with my 17-year-old cat, Tarzan and my loyal Tibetan Terrier, Molly. In the near future my home life will become a lot busier as the three of us will soon be living with David, my significant other, and his dog Dutch.”
