Aucpetvet and Eliot Veterinary Hospital, Eliot, ME (@eliotvethospital) are helping to organize a Veterinary Appreciation Event for veterinarians and their staff with Not One More Vet (@notonemorevet) as the host.

Event Details: The event will begin on October 23rd from 3:00-5:00 pm with break-out rooms and lots of prizes to give away.

We will also have a speaker from Not One More Vet for people to learn more about this amazing organization and how it can help. We will also educate guests about the local chapter we have started and the impact it will have on our community.

Veterinarians and their staff can rsvp at >> seacoastnewengland@nomv.org <<

We would love your help spreading the word to local vets, staff, and clients. Acupetvet and Eliot Veterinary Hospital will be collecting Thank You cards from clients (can be dropped off or mailed to us at Acupetvet or Eliot Vet Hospital) and we will hand them off to the corresponding vet clinics the week of the event.

We will also be looking for raffle prizes from community businesses. If you’d like to contribute a gift card or raffle prize for the event we are collecting that too (think gift cards from restaurants, Bed and Breakfast Inns, or hotels).

As the event gets closer we will send all registered guests a link.

Nancy Oxton: Veterinary Assistant/Service Coordinator

Nancy has worked as a veterinary technician in small animal and shelter medicine since 2002. She has worked in general practice and emergency medicine in Virginia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. She enjoys spending her free time with her family and her pets, which consist of a fleet of Dachshunds, a Corgi, and three cats. She is also currently working on dual master’s degrees in legal psychology and early American history, for which she enjoys learning and peer-advising others on. She can be found visiting period events on the American Civil War, early settlement recreations, and other historic recreations in her spare time and loves learning about the times and trials of other generations and cultures.

Nancy’s discovery of and interest in the benefits of acupuncture and rehabilitation therapy came when her own Dachshund named Sage experienced IVDD, which was remarkably improved by Dr. Wilson and Lynn’s use of these modalities. She had seen other clients’ animals helped and, having first-paw experience with her Sage, it urged her to want to learn even more about this extraordinary specialty.

She is beyond excited to get to be a part of the team at Acupetvet and looks forward to seeing the same responses and improvements in others’ pets.
