Dr. Karen Gant, DVM

When Dr. Karen Gant was nine years old, her family became the proud owners of an Australian Shepherd/English Shepherd mix puppy named Muffin. Karen went along to Muffin’s first vet visit and decided then and there on her future career. “Muffin lived to be 17 years old. She was alive when I graduated from vet school and achieved the goal that she inspired.”
