Dr. Melinda Wright, a past associate of Dr. Hittle’s, has witnessed the dedicated following of clients she has gathered during her 38 year career.
“Mary Ann’s compassion to her patients is endless. Her ability to relate to owners and emphasize with their love for their animals has allowed her to become a trusted confidant and partner in their pet’s care,” says Dr. Wright. “This bond was heartfelt and therefore difficult to put into words; it was easily witnessed, however, in a desk that was frequently overflowing with flowers, chocolates and cartons of eggs from grateful clients.”
Dr. Hittle is a 1979 graduate of the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. During the same year she joined the Appanasha Pet Clinic team where she has spent her career providing care to companion animals.
Ann Stein, a long time Appanasha Pet Clinic client and retired clinic business manager, believes Dr. Hittle represents all that is good in the veterinary medical profession.
“Without exception, I have always come away believing that she was caring for me as much as she was caring for my pet,” says Stein. “Every concern, no matter how large or small, received her undivided attention. From the first new puppy visit to helping them cross the rainbow bridge, she cared for them as if they were her own.”
In her acceptance speech, Dr. Hittle praised those veterinarians who understand and practice the art of veterinary medicine. She also shared the award with every pet owner and every pet that she had the privilege of serving since 1979.Last modified on
