Craig Road Animal Hospital welcomes Andrea, our newest D.V.M. extern. Andrea comes to us from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Andrea’s love for animal’s dates to her childhood. Growing up she owned two golden retrievers, rabbits and various birds.
She loved working with animals so much that she volunteered with the humane society at the age of ten. “Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always loved animals and when I realized that I could be both a doctor and work with animals I decided that’s where I want to be.” After four years of volunteering, she began her first job at an animal hospital as a kennel attendant. She worked her way up and soon became an exam room assistant, taking x-rays, drawing blood and getting more actively involved in the hospital.
Andrea obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biology from Coastal Carolina University in the spring of 2013. She is currently pursuing her D.V.M. degree at the University of Georgia. Working in general practice to treat larger animals is her goal, “I want to be able to treat whatever comes through the door.”
Andrea’s hobbies include hiking and going to the beach, her favorite activity is water skiing. She wants to work in emergency medicine as she feels that type of setting will help keep her skills sharp and make her a better doctor in the future. She believes that by being able to think on her feet and problem solve she’ll be better prepared to handle situations that arise in the hospital.
Moo came to parents Ashley and Karl in November of 2016. They tried searching for her owners with no luck. The Pitbull Mix weighed only 29 pounds when found. To ensure Moo’s continued healthcare maintenance the family has made several trips to Craig Road Animal Hospital. Initially, mom, Ashley was against keeping her, but Moo’s tenderness and charm caused her to have a change of heart.
“Moo just isn’t our pet, she’s so much more, I’ve really committed myself to caring for her.”
The couple fell in love with Moo’s affectionate nature and how much she loved to play. Ashley and Karl are now devoted and actively involved pet parents to their playful Pitbull Moo. Ashley says, “Moo has come such a long way with her time with us, she has made our lives so full of happiness.”

Meet Rottie, an adorable Chi-poo mix.
“We didn’t even know that her mom was pregnant, but when Rottie came it was amazing,” said mother Mar of being surprised with a Chi-pooh mix she calls the love of her family. “Rottie was a surprise at 5:30 in the morning March, 24th 2016,” she said. “I pulled her out, cut her cord and cleaned her off, she is the most amazing little Chi-Pooh anyone could ever want.”Rottie and her twin sister Kiva share Mar’s love and affection. They are partners in crime, they are so funny and they literally think I’m their biological mom… I love it.”
