Our Staff

  • Possum

    My name is Possum! I came to Mayer Vet Hospital in 2007 in search of a home of my own. Dr. Mayer and his staff were so nice to take me in, and I have lived here ever since. I enjoy visiting with everyone who comes to the hospital, especially other cats. My hobbies include tormenting the dogs who bark at me, chasing my tail, eating, and napping. My dislikes include people who don't pet me, weight management diets, and anyone sitting in my chair.

  • "Dr Mayer, performed a surgical procedure to save the eye on our Boston terrier, Pete. He did a great job explaining what needed to be done and taking care of him. We are from Colorado and Dr Mayer worked with us to schedule the surgery so that the impact on our travel was minimized. They kenneled Pete while he healed and when we had to leave town for a week. I highly recommend this clinic. Both the doctor and the staff were always available to help us and provided the best service available."
