Perry has been the Hospital Manager for the past 17 years. He recently moved from the Milwaukee East Side area to the North Shore area. Since he had been living close to UWM for so long, the move to Fox Point is something to get adjusted to. Here he is pictured with one of his nephews, ‘Elway’. Elway decided he needed to taste a loaf of bread on top of the fridge one day, and somehow on his way down, this kitty injured his leg. Elway’s mom was very worried that her cat had a broken leg, but it turned out this cat needed a cast to treat a soft tissue injury. Perry has a naughty little cat named ‘Hal’, named after Halloween, the day he was abandoned at our clinic. Hal comes to work with Perry to see his aunties, and to see Dr. Singh, who went from saving the kitten’s life to administering cat vaccines at his first annual appointment.
If you ask Liz why she enjoys working here, she says “Animal Health Rocks!” Why does it rock? Because she gets to be “an advocate for animals” by helping people help their animals. She also loves the animals and her co-workers. (Awww, thx!) However, Liz’s best bud is ‘Wiley’ whom she has had since he was rescued as a puppy from the Wisconsin Humane Society, where they did some of his puppy shots and neutered him. She also used to have a diabetic cat named ‘Toby’, a cat who began drinking a lot of water, and using the litter box a lot. Both are common signs of diabetes. Liz is currently enrolled at Bryant and Stratton College to become a nurse.
