Dr. Erica Anderson could have ended up anywhere. As a child, she followed her father, a botanist, across the world to places such as Thailand, Malaysia, Kenya, Japan. During these globetrotting days, Dr. Anderson discovered a passion for wildlife. She even spent time in South Africa studying animals and how they live. In the end, however, she decided a career as a wildlife veterinarian wasn't for her. Instead, she found that helping domesticated pets and their humans was a more fulfilling duty. So, she began working nightshifts as an emergency vet.
Fueled by an eclectic array of experiences and an undying compassion for animals, Dr. Anderson eventually opened her own practice, Jet City Animal Clinic. Here, Dr. Anderson checks up on cats and dogs during annual exams, and, if necessary, performs surgical procedures. She also works alongside a whole team of talented individuals, including technicians, body workers, and behaviorists.
Together, this team creates a warm and friendly space for owners and their pets. A calming, amicable vibe surfaces in the earth toned walls and the paintings of pets speckled throughout the office. Much of the decor comes from reclaimed materials, highlighting the staff's commitment to eco-friendly business practices. They also keep electronic records so they don't have to use as much paper or shave each dog's medical record into its own fur.
