Trouble

MrT came to our hospital with his brother when they were both just babies. He showed a false positive for FIV and had to have multiple surgeries to have polyps removed from his throat. After many days spent with Steven recovering we found out that he did not have FIV and his polyp problems were gone. By this time our staff had fallen in love with the little guy and we couldn’t adopt him out so he became our office kitty and third cat on the weekends to Steven and DR Sprague.

Office Manager

Steven

Steven came to Glastonbury Veterinary Hospital to help out his wife, Dr. Sprague, with the book keeping in 2017. He soon realized he could help even more by becoming a full time practice manager. His two favorite work benefits are spending more time with Dr. Sprague while she is doing what she loves (helping animals) and spending more time with our office cat Trouble. Trouble spent many hours in Steve’s arms when he was a kitten and not feeling well. When not at work Steve enjoys reading at home with his purr machine Mischief.
