Chris Gill - Veterinary Assistant
Chris is the newest addition to our Marietta Vet Clinic family. "My humble beginning was at a dog daycare back in 2009. I found joy in both being a pack leader and helping anxious and fearful pets assimilate in a pack. An opportunity arose for me in 2011 as a Veterinary Assistant and my ability to read canine body language helped me quickly excel. Since then I have been eager to learn every aspect of Veterinary medicine and look to each day as another chance to do so. I have many pets: A Wifus Domesticus, Daughterus Loveliness, Canine, Feline, Leopard Gecko, and some things that swim."
“Julian and his staff are the BEST!!! They are knowledgeable and friendly. Oakley (my lab) loves visiting them; they always have treats for her :) Julian has a true love for animals, and always recommends the best treatment options with my dogs best interest at heart. I highly recommend them to everyone in the area looking for a solid vet.” Derek Binette
