Daisy is our office’s part-time customer service representative, and considered “the favorite employee”. Rescued as a puppy from the Tulsa SPCA in May 2018, she has been providing a way of lowering blood pressure & dog-cuddle fixes ever since. Daisy’s energy level requires her to attend Doggie Daycare twice a week. However, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, she hangs out with us. She likes to brag that some patients ONLY schedule on the days that she’s in the office; we can’t blame them 😉 Outside of providing top-notch customer service, Daisy likes to run around at the dog park, play (treat enticing) fetch, and sit or “down” in order to get all the yummy treats.
