The staff honored Dr. Myers on her retirement with gifts and stories of the past 30 years of her veterinary career, primarily in large animal practice and more recently in the small animal clinic setting. All of the current staff and doctors are staying on and looking forward to continuing to serve the community with the same level of care and compassion as always. Dr. Derocher has been in practice at TVS for the past year, after working as an associate for 5 years at Norway Veterinary Hospital.
