I have been the veterinarian for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department's Canine Unit for the last 27 years, and have served the St. Louis Airport Police Department's Canine Unit fo the last 17 years. I probably see more working police dogs than anyone else in the Midwest. I am very proud to be associated with these departments, and I've developed excellent techniques to effectively treat their numerous medical and surgical problems while minimizing their time out of service. I really enjoy working with the dogs and the officers handling the dogs.
