Applebrook Animal Hospital is a dream come true for Dr. Primm and she will laugh and say that it is built of her "blood, sweat and tears".
She and her husband, Shane, take care of 1 human child, Will,  2 cats, Spider & Scamper and Skye, rescued Standard Poodle; Dr. Primm knows the challenges of keeping fur-friends happy and healthy.   Helping pets and people is her passion and her mission, loving the job is an extra bonus!
